Since it's Friday (yeah!) we have some cool bit of news for you guys. It's not everyday we hear about a celebrity/athlete/personality using a T-Mobile G1 so when we do, we pay close attention. Crackberry can have their celeb sightings because we'll take the biggest (literally) star on the planet: Shaquille O'neal!

There's a great story about some normal guys' experience with meeting Shaq, the realness of Shaq's twitter account, and Shaq's surprising interest in technology,  that mentions this tidbit:

As I pulled out my phone to take a picture he snatched it out of my hand and inspected it. "What's this got? Windows Mobile?" He gave it the once over before handing it back and showing off his Google Phone.

 

I loved Shaq before, but now knowing that he's a fellow Android user?! Imagining his huge hands trying to type on the G1 keyboard? Complaining about the 'chin'? The possibilities are endless. In the end, it makes a lot of sense. T-Mobile has a huge NBA presence and many athletes have proclaimed their love for Sidekicks and the G1 is just a natural extension from there. Obviously, we'll never hear his stance on Open Source OS's but Shaq using a "Google Phone". Instant credibility. Sort of.

The story is a pretty good read if you're interested. And if you're not, it's Friday!

To be fair, he had two phones with him. The other was a Nokia of some form. He just tweet'd something about having dropped it in the toilet, and now owning a "Shaqberry"

[...] Wyobrażacie sobie tego koszykarza z Phoenix Suns, o wzroście 216 cm, 147 kilogramach wagi i ogromnych łapskach. A teraz włóżcie w te łapska telefon G1 i jego klawiaturkę QWERTY. I jak? To musi wyglądać bardzo ciekawie, naprawdę ciekawie, prawie tak ciekawie jak Nokia 6310i w prezydenckich celach obronnych... Choć być może to wszystko fake jakiegoś emo-kida. Zresztą oceńcie sami...

Napoleon stood sternly surveying his audience; then he uttered a high-pitched whimper. wow goldAion kinahmetin2 yangwow goldAion kinahmetin2 yangdofus kamaswow goldAion kinahImmediately the dogs bounded forward, seized four of the pigs by the ear and dragged them, squealing with pain and terror, to Napoleon’s feet.

Napoleon appeared to change countenance, and sharply ordered Boxer to let the dog go, whereat Boxer lifted his hoof, and the dog slunk away, bruised and howling.

When it was all over, the remaining animals, except for the pigs and dogs, crept away in a body. They were shaken and miserable. wow goldwow gold kaufenwow power levelingAion kinahcheap Aion kinahbuy aion kinahaion kinah kaufenmetin2 yangcheap metin2 yangThey did not know which was more shocking -- the treachery of the animals who had leagued themselves with Snowball, or the cruel retribution they had just witnessed.
