Default Blackberry Curve with Windows Mobile on it!!!! Radioshack Goof

Please Login to Remove!

Well I was reading the sales paper today, I work at Radioshack and wanted to see what was on sale.. The last time Radioshack goofed is when they had a jailbroken iPod Touch on the cover... And I found this on the front cover....

You can see it for you self here RadioShack Weekly Ad

i don't believe it's radioshack that's doing that.

they probably hired some 3rd party webdesigner.

i have a buddy who does websites & occassionally, i'd catch him slipping with a few details (spelling, grammer, images...)... yeah.

Since its your pet peeve, why didn't you correct "occassionally" with "occasionally"?

If correcting others grammar is your pet peeve, then you had better get your typing fingers ready. Personally, I wouldn't waste the time.

Especially, since you understood the post

I think jimbob's pet peeve might have been only the spelling of "grammar", not grammar in general, or spelling in general.

Verizon had flyers back in December showing Windows Mobile on the Pearl, I found it rather amusing.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8320)

I have Windows Mobile 7.0 on my Curve. Its so awesome. I was tired of waiting for BB OS 4.5 so I figured out a way to get Microsoft on my Curve. You have to have a special cypher only available in Narnia (yes, I do have a closet which leads to this magical world). I fought the white witch and managed to steal the cypher from her midget carriage driver. I lost a couple of friends and my sanity during this ordeal, but it was well worth it. Good times, good times.

Haha, a few months ago they ran an ad for the iPod Touch and it had the jailbroken Installer icon on it... Hope Radio Shack gets really good rates from whoever prints their ads...
