    Default Where are the commercials?...

    When BB10 was initially announced some time back, there were folks complaining about lack of marketing. All I kept hearing was, "oh, just wait until it it hits the stores...BB will light it up". Well, the phone will be out in less than a few days and I have yet to see one solitary commercial on the TV...not one (besides the epic Superbowl failure). Is BB being as obtuse with marketing as they were with the ill fated Playbook??

    I have gone back and forth with BB...I have tried to like them over the years. I had the Pearl long ago and gave the 9930 and the Playbook a whirl, but I really am starting to see why so many have serious disdain for them. There are a lot of people like myself that dislike stupid companies just like they dislike stupid people. One can only make so many brain numbingly thoughtless mistakes before they really just don't deserve to be around any longer.

    I saw one three times. The latest was today, during the Chris Matthews show on MSNBC.

    No offense meant to the product itself, but I'm actually getting a little tired of seeing z10 commercials here near Philadelphia. They're on constantly during prime time here.

    I see them almost daily and rarely watch TV.

    I see the Keep Moving commercial and carrier commercials from Bell and Rogers.

    Hulu is running commercials as well before videos and such. Plus, YouTube had huge banner ad on the homepage and practically ever website I visit that I don't ad block has Z10 ads on it. Keep in mind, I'm in Canada but I often use a U.S. VPN so get served U.S. ads.

    You must be watching the wrong TV shows...I saw them tonight in fact. Once while I was eating with my wife and her my mother-in-law watching dancing with the stars and before that during that new diving with the stars show that is on as well...

    I have seen countless iPhone and Samsung ads the last few days, mostly on prime time, but not a hint if the Z10. I usually only DVR my shows, and I skip the ads, but the last few days I watched stuff live on purpose. Nothing.., no Z10, but i-whatnot and Samsung out the ar.e.

    I see the commercials pretty much daily in Toronto. Even had it before OZ- The Great And Powerful in the theatres on Sunday.

    I like how BlackBerry 10 is evolving, but when are they going to fix BlackBerry Link for Mac?

    The fact that it doesn't reliably do what it's supposed to do ... most of the time ... is utterly appalling. The only consistency is the "Music not copied to Z10 message"

    I'm in western Canada, and I've posted before that I"d seen none, but in the last couple weeks, I've seen about 2. I did see quite a few carrier commercials featuring the z10, but those seem to have really dropped off the last little bit.

    I have to say that I think this is a useless commercial. It's 1 minute long and it shows the device for a total of 20 seconds. If the people walking around in the commercial were actually USING the device while walking around, I might be able to get on board.

    I'm a hockey fan, couldn't help but notice BBRY is advertising on TSN during intermissions. They have their analysts and on their desk you see the logo. Not exactly a commercial but that's big IMO.

    In France, they are very present on TV. Almost each major TV channel "audience big spot" is filled with one Z10 commercial.
    Saw 3 spots in 2 days with a limited time in front of my TV set.

    No ads around here (Florida). Saw one months ago. Not a lot of need until they have units for sale. Ads are expensive.

    I see iPhone ads all the time on multiple channels/networks

    I've seen Z10 ads every night this week, prime time, on CNN. Multiple times per evening.

    Iowa, here, and getting blasted with both Samsung and Apple ads. Nothing from BlackBerry.

    Man, Apple really has a nice series. Good soundtrack and it displays their products nicely from the start. Probably cheap to produce as well.

    I second that motion. I live in South Jersey and that BB Keep Moving commercial is stalking my life.
