    Realistically, how much would it cost to put this kid in a bb10 commercial? I think it would be worthwhile as it would help remove the "uncool" perception of bb, especially with the younger crowd. Anyone have any dollar figures of him in other commercials?

    He's Canadian and grew up in a town close to Waterloo. He should do it for free.

    As much as I am not a JB fan, it is one heck of an idea to get new younger people on board!

    Not a bad idea, but he is A list so expensive. Plus his image has taken some dings lately and RIM is targeting Business with most of their dollars.

    his fans seem to be willing to mutilate their bodies for him. If he said bb10 was cool they would buy it

    A commercial with his new song "beauty and a beat" would work perfectly too. It sounds like beauty and a B (B as in blackberry). Look at the lyrics too. They work well:

    Show you off
    Tonight I wanna show you off (aye,aye,aye)
    What you got
    A billion could've never bought (aye,aye,aye)

    Ah, as much as I like Canadians I still cannot understand this Bieber phenomenon... Am I getting old? Is it possible to make HIM pay for appearing in BlackBerry commercials?

    RIM can't use Bieber. Not RIM's fault, not Bieber's fault.

    Justin Bieber is a very polarizing figure. He's a talented kid (who's incredibly well-grounded for his age, btw), but soooo many people actively dislike him that you run the risk of turning off a considerable number of potential customers.

    Lady Gaga? Goofy, yes, and I don't know that she commands a ton of respect, exactly, but she doesn't elicit the kind of strong, visceral dislike I've seen from many people just at the mention of Bieber's name. Same goes for Nicki Manaj; she could probably be used in some way.

    Bieber might be able to drop the odd tweet, and if RIM could convince him to use a BB10 phone his fans would notice and it would be decent publicity, but if RIM retained him in some kind of active marketing spokesman role it could drive a lot of people away.
