Kim Kardashian: Never Fear, BlackBerry's Here

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian's life motto is firmly cemented ... once you go BlackBerry ... you never go back, and thanks to a top dog at the mobile company, she'll never be without her longtime companion.

Kim K went into panic mode Wednesday after her BlackBerry Bold took its last gasp. The conundrum ... no Bolds no mo'.  

But it's BB to the rescue ... company exec Alex Thurber tells TMZ they've got Kim covered. They're sending her their most secure Android smartphone ... a smart move that surely has Tim Cook sorely disappointed.

There is a fly in the ointment. The new BlackBerry smartphones don't have the iconic keyboard, but Thurber says BB is developing an old-school keyboard for its new device.

So, in the fruit basket of life ... Kim continues to choose berries over apples.
