I am sure the iSheep are going to have fun with this.........
I hope she is not featured in the Super Ball Ad. That would make it a disaster.....

How do they tell? I thought Twitter removed the ability to see what device you tweeted from a while ago, and I can't see any recent Instagram photos on her Twitter (though there definitely were some pre-launch).Passport (10.3.2.680) | iPhone 6 (8.3) | Lumia 1020 (WP8.1 GDR1, Lumia Denim) | Surface Pro 3 (256GB i5, W8.1)

Its fine she can keep her iPhone. Just make sure she takes pics with a white Z10. I dont like the other rumor I heard
which states that she was tweeting from
an old motorola flip phoneWatch Hulu and Netflix on the Playbook
I'd expect the deal with Alicia was well in the works weeks before 1/30/2013 (= 10 by the way if you add the digits) I guess it's the media ignoring timelines and pointing to a similar situation with the Microsoft Surface when some other big celebrity decided to post an endorsement of it but it was from their iPad.
Risky business using celebrities

I know you're one of the most extreme (and sometimes I am sure you're just playing the part for laughs!:-) but you're stretching here!
She's a celebrity PAID an awful lot to say what she said yesterday. I agree there is no controversy, her "word" was never to be taken seriously. She will keep her Apple products more hidden, and she can keep spending the money RIM customers are giving her! It's all silly.

She clearly said that she was using other products previously and now she was back using a blackberry. She did not state that she has been using the blackberry for weeks, months, or days. She only stated that she is now again using it.
At no point did she mention a time period that she was again using a blackberry and a tweet was made from iPhone during that period.
Of course she is a paid celebrity, thats not the issue here. No one is saying she is not being paid to promote this. Don't defer.
That is your opinion that she will keep her apple products hidden, not a fact.
She has made no lies here. 100%

you guys are ACTUALLY BEING SERIOUS??! LOL. OK....you are telling me not to "defer" (very odd terminology)...then trying to argue about the timeline?!!
OK I'm out. Just to be clear:
1.Think arguing pedantic legalities/specifics about the timeline is ridiculous. Not interested in if she technically "lied"! LOL In fact, I don't recall her "promising" never to use another product...as Mecca El points out....but even if she had, it's a ridiculous argument because:
2.as I pointed out, it's clearly ridiculous to argue about whether she used an iphone just before/during/after her endorsement because you are left with a disingenuous situation either way. I pointed out the alternatives explicitly but notice nobody addressed them - I don't think I should have even needed to do that. Pretty basic stuff, and why people are getting a laugh at her expense.
The bottom line: RIM payed Alicia a lot of money. They didn't pay for her expertise, they didn't paid her for the ILLUSION that she loves RIM products. It is an illusion only (the reality may or may not differ....apparently it does indeed differ.......in any case as long it's hidden, it's inconsequential to the players here). I thought, and would still hope, that in this day and age, most people would be fully aware of that. Obviously, others, including RIM don't believe that, and feel that the illusion will benefit the company. Her actions with the ipad shatter the illusion, and thus reaffirm the fakery - that is the "controversy". It isn't particularly shocking, it is rather funny what a poor job was done....unless you are RIM...in which case, it is undoubtedly painful - money perhaps misspent.
I suppose that if some are so vested in the illusion that it makes them argue about whether she used the iphone/ipad just BEFORE - geez, she MUST not have had a bb10 phone before Wed, then RIM was right.....the illusion is important to some.
