What Kim Kardashian giveth, Chelsea Handler taketh away.

“I use Apple,” the comedian and author said when asked by Re/code’s Kara Swisher what mobile device she uses. “Are there any others?”

While Kardashian gave a nice unsolicited plug to BlackBerry at last year’s Code Conference, Handler poked fun at her manager’s device of choice, which turned out to be a BlackBerry Passport. Handler initially thought it was a Samsung Galaxy, but was corrected by her manager.

“You think I give a shit?” Handler said from the stage at the Code/Media conference today. “It’s big and it takes up half the car.”

Handler said she used to use a BlackBerry, which puts her in pretty good company with plenty of iPhone and Android users.

“I loved my BlackBerry,” she said. “It was hard for me to part with that.”
