There's definitely some missing steps in this process.
I assume you intend to smash the BlackBerry with the hammer?
Step 1 and 2 sort of make sense but then the process goes way off course.
Step 3 is just insane. What would gravity have to do with the process?
The table counteracts gravity and is preventing the device from falling to the floor. I suppose you could use the hammer to push the BlackBerry off the edge, but I don't think that's where you were going with your instructions.
If your intention is actually to smash the device with the hammer... then you really aren't using gravity at all, and there's no need to let "gravity take its course."
You'd be applying force to the hammer with your arm in the direction of the BlackBerry causing the hammer to strike to the device. Again, gravity isn't a real factor here, until the little bits of broken device fly off the table and land on the floor. At that point, gravity is "taking its course" however, the damage has already been done so it's not really relevant .
I dunno... maybe I'm being a little too critical.
