    Another celeb as BB sighting...

    Can't really tell which blackberry is laid out in front of Kanye, is that a Q10 or a Bold? Blackberry needs to try to get an endorsement deal with this guy ASAP. Hate him or love him he's a MAJOR pop icon..

    It looks like a Q10. Interesting that would be a huge endorsement. Good eye.

    Yeah ... this is just what Blackberry needs. I can just see Apple winning an award for something and Kanye running up to the stage and saying "Apple, we are very happy for you ..... but Blackberry makes the best phone of all times".

    I'm pretty sure Kim K and her sisters use BlackBerrys so why not the Mr. as well right.

    I hate them all to be honest.

    Kanye even has a line in his song that goes

    "Damn your lips very soft
    As I turn my Blackberry off
    And I turn your bath water on
    And you turn off your iPhone"

    Interesting. Drake still has one, I believe. Writes his raps on them.

    Don't like his personality, but he has a lot of influence and a large presence in the music scene. Great to see more celebrities picking up BB10 phones.

    All their managers and agents have BB's so I'm not surprised.

    Can't really tell which blackberry is laid out in front of Kanye, is that a Q10 or a Bold? Blackberry needs to try to get an endorsement deal with this guy ASAP. Hate him or love him he's a MAJOR pop icon..

    I think it's cool that Kanye has been seen with a BB in public, absolutely...

    As for an endorsement deal, that gets tricky. There's a science behind picking the "right" people to associate your brand with. Kanye is brilliant, sure, (just ask him ), but using him as a brand spokesman could wind up alienating just as many potential customers as it could attract. Same would go for Bieber. I'm personally wary of anyone who'd knock up a Kardashian (just sayin'...)

    If they could land, say, Beyonce (with or without Jay-Z), that would be WAAAAAY better, since she's got broad public appeal and little if any "baggage". The trouble here is, I think most people assume that if you throw enough money at any celebrity that you can get them to say anything you want, but the smart celebs are very careful in selecting their brand associations and coming on board with BlackBerry right now represents a huge risk.

    I actually thought that Alicia Keys was a pretty good choice for BlackBerry. She's classy and smart and I thought she represented a good personality to go with the brand. The biggest downsides to her are that it's been a few years since she had a major hit (and her "Girl on Fire" album didn't exactly, um, set fire to the charts), and I think many found her kind of bland.

    Advertising is a niche market. She still has a huge following, album or not. I do think celebrity endorsements are a good way to brand the phone.
