When it comes to our fifth appendages, there seem to be two options for the celebrity set: iPhone or BlackBerry. And there's at least one famous face who doesn't take the choice lightly. After Russell Brand was photographed snatching an iPhone from a prying paparazzo and throwing it through a nearby window -- a stunt that later got him arrested -- the comedic actor took to Twitter to clarify the cause of his intense action.

"Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory," Brand tweeted.

But others aren't so loyal when it comes to their walk-and-talk gadgets. Kim Kardashian was infamously dedicated to her BlackBerry before being wooed by her sleek, mirrored iPhone -- although the reality star seems to be a phone flip-flopper, switching between her cell phones.

Whether they're team iPhone or team BlackBerry, these celebrities are certainly never far from their tech toys.

What do their cell phone choices say about these celebrities? Let us know in the comments.
