Bravo's NYC Prep Cast of Characters All Have BlackBerry Smartphones

NYC Prep Kids Love Clothes, Money . . . and BlackBerrys

Ever wondered what cell phones the Gossip Girl characters would carry if Verizon didn't sponsor the show? Me too.

We get to see what the real-life kids would carry through the voyeuristic lens of Bravo's new GG-inspired reality show NYC Prep. Although the dialogue doesn't crackle as much (these are real teenagers, after all), one thing the fictional show got right is the cell-phone addiction. To be specific? You only need one word to typify their cell-phone obsession: BlackBerry, BlackBerry, BlackBerry.

There was not one cell phone that got screen time last night that was not a BB; it was even noted by one of the girls: "I love how we all have BlackBerrys. It's like the typical New York thing."

Indeed, like Gossip Girl, their phones almost never leave their teen hands, and one teen girl even corrected her mother that she's not texting — she's BBMing.

What else is hot for NYC rich kids? Gel cases! White, red, grey, black, burgundy . . . though, no green, oddly.
