    Was at the coffee shack waiting to fuel up, and idly flipping through the newspaper on the counter. Turned the page, and my brain started singing the Sesame Street "one of these things is not like the other" song to me, until it finally consciously registered what it was I was looking at...

    Holy crap -- BB is actually advertising in the US?! LOL About freaking time!

    I'm pretty sure it was today's Wall Street Journal, as there was no newspaper at all on the counter when I was there yesterday morning. I was in so much shock, I only had enough wits about me to take a photo, but not check the date of the paper. LOL

    It was the "Marketplace" section. (I don't normally read the WSJ, as it's not normally the paper that's there when I'm getting my caffeine...)


    Full-Page BB advert in Wall Street Journal today!?!-img_00000099b.jpg

    The copy reads:

    WAGE BUSINESS

    Introducing the new BlackBerry Q10 and Z10.
    Built to make your people unstoppable.

    See them in action at blackberry.com

    The image on the Z10 screen is the web browser, supposedly showing "www.fastcompany.com", and an article titled "How to schedule your day for peak creative performance"

    We'll probably see more of this as carrier coverage in the US increases. Not much sense convincing people to buy if they can't do so. In NA if you advertise to Americans, you advertise to everyone.
