File this one in the "wow" category. Excited about receiving a BlackBerry Tour 9630 like the rest of us, Crackberry forums member flighthawks presumably opened the boring FedEx box to see a shiny new Tour box inside. Pausing to read the list of included items on the side of the box, he began: BlackBerry Tour 9630 smartphone, 1400 mAh battery, 2 GB microSD card pre-installed in the phone, SIM card for international roaming, picture of RIM employee, international travel charger with included....wait, what?
Of course, I'm kidding. But I can only imagine his shock when he clicked on his photo gallery, only to see a picture of someone he'd never met. Of note, Verizon has offered to replace the device, with no questions asked. In case you're wondering, the timestamp of the picture is what lends credence to the story - it was taken on June 4th, weeks before he received the device.
Look RIM, I know you're looking for new ways to spruce up your OS against renewed threats by the iPhone and webOS, but throwing on glamour shots of factory employees probably isn't the best approach to obtain customers. I'm just saying.
