    He also mentioned something about facebook subscribers for BlackBerry. I just had an idea, they could make videos for BB10, perhaps an advertisement that showcase BB10, its UI, how to use it, etc. Then have a contest giving away BB10 devices. You take part by liking BlackBerry, sharing that video, and commenting on the BB10's advantages over the competition, and spread the message of this competition. People who do that stand a chance to win BB10 devices. (on facebook, there will be a number showing the amount of "shares", and you can view who shared that video and the comment they posted, so it should be plausible)

    Of course they just can't be giving away 1 phone. It needs to be a bunch of them from each country. This may be a costly way to do it, but it will garner a lot of "sharing" of the video. This way, BlackBerry gets more subscribers on facebook (bigger marketing target audience), and the video can reach other people, even if they don't subscribe to BlackBerry on facebook. This will perhaps get more people interested in BB10, and for RIM to "market" or "educate" the consumers on the new paradigm that BB10 is bringing. As Frank mentioned, part of the marketing is an education process.

    Not a bad idea. It helps create mindshare.

    I think he did ask some good questions....though I think they were intended to try to trip up Frank, but he did a great job handling them.

    I would also like to see those kinds of interviews here on CB. JG is a Blogger just like Kevin, & yet his interview video showed both participants & when talking about a certain feature would switch to a video showing that feature.
    First off you should never compare kevin to Johnathan. Your post lost all credibility it had until that point. You must not look at the stuff Johnathan say about RIM he's a big factor in all this. You can't name one post where kevin has ever took shots at apple hardcore non-stop with no facts never.

    Only reason I responded is because I love kevin

    Frank said that BBM will be on the PlayBook in the near future...I know this could mean many things, but does anyone else believe that they may have it ready for the 2.1 update? Obviously not the BB10 version, but a stripped down version which can work on the PB?

    Yes Janeka never has anything constructive to say. Must be one of those folks that get off on pushing people's buttons. I blame parents for not hugging enough as a kid.

    I'm sure Janeka wouldn't like it if someone started making jokes about her.....

    It totally wouldn't be worth RIM's precious time, but it would be cool if they did a CrackBerry exclusive thing where you could sign up, join by NDA, and be kept up to date on the development process/insider information.

    But realistically that would be a) not worth it for them b) a risk for absolutely no necessary reason and c) illegal in one form or another for shareholders


    In that unrealistic dream world, I would sign up though.
    Remember to RTFM.
