    Default Rim Asleep @ the Wheel...

    i suggested in another thread here that they should get out there NOW via the playoffs on tv here in the U.S. thus getting millions of eyes on,,, the general public here is clueless as affirmed by the numerous posts by cb'ers about interactions w/ friends & carrier reps,,, the more i thought about the idea of getting playoff ad time, (i posted a comment earlier today), the more of a great idea it was/is, if i do say so myself,,, that kind of airtime doesn't come cheap, but they've already stated they're going to spend $$$ on marketing,,, sooo, just moments ago what do i see??? a SAMSUNG SIII/NOTE 2 commercial shooting @ the business/security demographic!!! ,,, guess it was/is a great idea,,, & i got the feeling that Rim may still be asleep @ the wheel,,, ,,, food for thought,,, if you guys in Toronto could put a bug in their ear, it would probably do some good,,, i feel this was a big misstep to lose the opportunity to get the word out...

    Timing, dude. They can't have a commercial about a product that hasn't been released. With the release on January 30th that gives a good chance for some super bowl spots.

    I think we won't be able to judge the wisdom of their marketing campaign until we see the full thing. If they have several surprises for the 30th and save their marketing $$ to promote the entire phone it could be the most effective play.

    Since we all feel the very survival of RIM is on the line I gotta feel like they have worked with marketing experts and have a good plan.

    First off RIM is announcing prior to Super Bowel where the money would be much better spent than on the play-offs.

    And secondly, USMC for when it absolutely positively has to destroyed overnight.

    And????
    The men and women who have/do/will risk life & limb to serve in ALL of the armed forces for the protection of freedom in the USA and abroad are not sensitive.
    We are fierce! Hence, the response.
    We also will give our lives for you to have the right to say such idiotic drivel.

    Thanks to ALL the armed froces! Bunch tough sons O bitches!
    Anyway back to topic, Its not hard to tell we are down to the final stretch, 9 days left! Just like the armed forces, theres no turning back now! We don't question our General just before he launches his assault. This far in, I believe they have everything well in hand!

    Well said...
    Don't question the General.
    Just wait for his command and the counter strike will be done swiftly and deadly...

    Look at the hit Samsung did... They're still attacking even after months of their launch date.
    U know why? Because they felt threatened by BlackBerry. That's why.
