    Default Sponsorship in 2014?

    Will BlackBerry continue to sponsor Mercedes in 2014 for the f1 season?

    I hope so. Any confirmation?

    They have a 3 year contract


    Mercedes’ Formula One team and BlackBerry, two businesses trying to catch up with rivals, joined forces in a sponsorship deal worth $12m a year for three years.

    Research In Motion, the Canadian handset maker, is getting into F1 for the first time and will have the BlackBerry name on the chassis and headrests of Mercedes’ new Silver Arrows and the racesuits of team drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.
    A simple man with a BlackBerry.

    They can be found kicking about a few ebay stores already, f1 teams themselves are usually slow at updating their own stores, especially around this time of year.

    $36 million over three years. It's interesting to think about what is gained the the sponsorship from a marketing standpoint vs doing what some people have advocated, here - buying apps from developers. Imagine using that money, instead, to pay an average of $1M each for the development of 36 popular native apps. I guess it depends on whether you think marketing or addressing the app gap is more important.
