lmao... damn, and people say there is no brainwashing/bias going on.
I dont want to take this off topic, so lets stay ON TOPIC of RIM trying to WAKE PEOPLE UP to the fact that they are being duped.
Sorry, but there is no valid point that you can make against Apple flat out lying about the 4G in Australia (which is where this took place) because adds have been posted that show that APPLE advertized that it is 4G, while they knew that it wouldnt work. They are being taken to court in Australia and now in the UK (for the second time)... so saying that RIM is EMBARRASSING for trying to bring this to the attention of the people who may be purchasing devices that are the cause for legal matters is actually, in fact, embarrassing for the people who say it.
Every company has to say that there devices are good, I agree 100%. But if i release a device and say it can do something and then people buy it and it is discovered that there was NEVER a possibility of this happening then HOW are the people at fault? If I show a device using 4G in a network that is KNOWN to be different from the network where I live and the company selling the device says that the device is 4G... then how is that MY FAULT?
This bull about USERS ERROR/FAULT is getting out of hand, and it seems like only APPLE is using it. Sure you cant use ANY phone underwater or believe that if you drop your phone from the top of a staircase that it will be replaced... but USER FAULT causing a 4G device to NO have 4G is absolutely crazy.
Actually... maybe I should ask one of my Australian friends to make sure they are HOLDING IT THE RIGHT WAY

While some people in this thread think it's the best marketing campaign to date, and it's perfectly ok to raid a competitor's store with ridicules signs like "Wake UP", the media certainly did not and the stock dropped below $13.
RIM is being criticized yet again as a result.

Any company that did this is stupid, it's the kind of thing I would expect from Samsung.
From RIM? This is far from professional.... It's even more embarrassing when you don't even have a product for the masses you're telling to... "wake up".

Unless at the end of the clock time a product is revealed. The more I think about this it just makes sense to release the 4g playbook. You know a tablet with 4G that will actually work in Australia. RIM is living up to the bebold theme and I think they are doing a great job.._unless of course nothing happens when the clock finishes. Lol otherwise a 4G playbook release along with everything else I think was pretty bold by rim no pun intended,well maybe just a little.

I think people have woke up, they ditched their BB and got an iPhone.
What really probably happened is that those were the last bus full of RIM stockholders and they got lost. They were trying to find Waterloo HQ but their BB Maps program got them lost.

A protest is a protest, Media claims RIM admitted to planning it, but is there anything to backup those claims at all? Solid evidence? I doubt there is any. Let's stay on-topic before this gets CLOSED by a mod.

If this isnt a 4G playbook then its the king of trolls.
Releasing a 4G device in that market first will show people that BB cares about them more then other companies that left them out of their 4G spectrum.
Do they have the newest bold in that market? It could also be a 4G version of that

I tweeted @crackberry, @blackberry and @blackberry_au about how there is less than 12 hours left. No reponse. @crackberry didn't respond to my tweet asking if they were going to be the last site to say anything(did that when it first was told it was RIM)
