    I heard an AT&T radio ad for the Z10/Q10 last night. First time in months. Later, my wife saw an ad for the Q10 online.

    Anecdotal, but I have to wonder if maybe someone in Waterloo is finally waking up.

    Seems like they're targeting NYC quite hard (for obvious reasons).

    This sounds like very effective marketing spend imo. Particularly in the US market.

    Put it in people's hands and have knowledgeable people dispel the BlackBerry myths at the same time.

    Maybe they could hang out at Best Buy once in awhile as well haha.

    Again, kudos to Mr.Boulben.

    Ya, the cities chosen don't seem to be the obvious choices. Would be curious to know as well.

    Yeah, they have been marketing a lot recently. I saw them sponsoring "The Amazing Race" last night. Kind of funny with their "Keep Moving" line.

    I heard a blackberry ad on the radio last night which is rare for me. (I live in NYC)

    Also, great news about these blackberry vans. Although I've seen them before months ago

    I'm loving the energy here haha. I see BB trying to make the marketing moves they should've been making a while back, but I hope they still gather up a few hundred for each truck they got driving around. This usually helps people talk about them.

    As you can see there's a girl who was attracted by the guys. haha And you need hot girls who know about Blackberry, you don't just put hot girls who don't know anything about bb or how to use it. lol

    It would work though. She can just keep saying BlackBerry over and over again in a sensual voice

    The cities on the current tour aren't the top ten US cities by population. Not saying that as a negative, I just wondered what metric they used to choose the cities on the tour.

    List of United States cities by population - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Interesting...I guess maybe they were going for cities that they thought had a little more influence or were more 'popular'. As a Canadian, I thought the list was pretty spot on. I really didn't know that places like Miami and Boston had such low populations relative to my previous perception.
