It is rather tiny.
Here's what the larger description says :

This glacier has remained unmelted for centuries. Yet, the petroleum energy Humble supplies-if converted into heat-could melt it at the rate of 80 tons each second! To meet the nation's growing energy needs, Humble has applied science to nature's resources to become America's Leading Energy Company.
Working wonders with oil through research, Humble provides energy in many forms- to help heat our homes, power our transportation, and to furnish industry with a great variety of versatile chemicals. Stop at a Humble station for new Enco Extra gasoline and see why the "Happy Motoring" sign is the World's First Choice!

Looks like Alaska is the third word in the image caption.

Yeah, I could read that. The tiny bit right under the photo is what got me.

I can only imagine how tedious it must be surfing on a cell phone! ()

Right now I'm on a desktop, though my main internet-steed is an Acer Aspire One netbook running Ubuntu. The screen is petite, but by and large stuff shows up the same size as a normal computer, you can just see less of it at a time.

In the event that I do get a blackberry or something similar, I won't be using it for web browsing much, and I won't be getting it until my work decides that I need one and therefore decides to pay for it.

I'm curious if the Blackberry is perceived as an "imported" product (which it is) or whether Americans just assume it is an American produced product?

I doubt that they care. It's perceived as a major status symbol.

I have no idea.

Well... it's also pretty useful. Though I've heard that in "business" circles blackberries are more acceptable than iphones, despite them doing the same thing.

I can't say I ever thought about it before.

Pretty much what I expected. Canadian products tend to fly under the US radar as 'non-foreign'.

The Blackberry was invented/made by a small company (RIM) in London, Ontario.
