    "We at BlackBerry... BlackBerry has built our reputation..."

    Is that proper English?

    I don't know why they decided to capitalize every word. Looks kinda weird. Or maybe I'm just being nitpicky

    It is. A "Company" much like "staff" can/should be plural.

    Say what you will about the choice of font and capitalization (I think it's a little awkward as well), but hell, at least they're making some marketing effort

    It's absolute correct English. "We" is the subject of the first sentence. It's plural so the correct verb is "are." "BlackBerry" is the subject of the next sentence. It's singular (A company is a single entity.) so the correct verb is "is."

    Prepositional phrases such as "at Blackberry" provide information about the subject, "we."

    So, a simplified version would be, "We are..." and "Blackberry is..."

    More info that you wanted, I'm sure, but it is correct. The capitalization is not standard at all, but I assume it was due to the typography. It would be flat wrong as standard prose.

    Shouldn't it be...

    We at BlackBerry are proud... We have built our reputation...

    Or...

    BlackBerry is proud... BlackBerry has built its reputation...

    Seems odd to mix the two.

    You mean singular, right? A company is always singular (hence the "a"!)

    Whether "staff" is singular or plural actually depends on the usage. It's a collective noun, and it depends whether the word is being used to indicate a unit or a group of individuals:

    Unit: XYZ Company's staff is the best in the industry.

    Group: The staff are scheduling their vacations for after the holiday season, to avoid leaving office short-handed during the busy fourth quarter.

    No, meant plural as in your explanation for "staff". I, clearly not clearly enough, used company in quotes to represent a company name (e.g. BlackBerry) that would use the plural in the same collective way as staff.

    In other words, the Priv text is not incorrect.

    Company as in a corporation is singular. It's a legal entity not a group of people.

    Not that I was going to get into a grammar discussion or anything, but I think the first line is missing some commas. Should be "We, at BlackBerry, are...". I don't think the second sentence is correct. Shouldn't it be "Blackberry has built its reputation..."? The way it is now seems to imply that BlackBerry has spent the last 20 years building someone else's reputation.

    On another note, love to see BlackBerry taking some shots. It's about time!

    Terrible English. They have also capitalised every word. Why? I'm a writer by profession. If anyone from BlackBerry is reading this, contact me. I'll write your marketing material for half the price. The material you have put out recently has been horrible.
