    Just saw a huge plug for the new BB Bold with Twitter. The Bold looks amazing in Jenny McCarthy's beautiful hands. Keep showing off BB. I can only wow so many people with my own phone.

    It seems to be focused on the Bold. Even the literature says "brought to you by BlackBerry Bold" I love my PB, but I think it's a good move to focus initial advertising on their flagship phone. My 9930 is one of my best friends.

    Good point - the advertising is sucking as per usual though "Be Bold the new blackberry bold"

    The Bold is sooo old....

    Give us a reason to bye one!

    I mean even "Be bold the new touch bold" would help geez...haven't they fired that marketing director yet?

    This was just a great start. I doubt RIM expects this New Years Eve sponsorship to do much more than be an attention grabber. I'm hoping we will see a build up of new BB commercials up to the release of BBX phones and beyond.
    Seemed to get some positive buzz in Twitter land.

    Sounds promising, I've noticed much of the full/new range of o/s 7 phones are on most uk carriers now as well- I'll keep pointing out how functional/quick o/s 7 is anyway :-)

    Sucks that i didn't get to see all this wonderful advertising...oh well spent the night with the family playing Wii . Ya im agreeing with above they wont have commercials for the PB until OS2 comes out. They are trying to show people how good their product is not how crappy it was.

    i think they need to keep the intensity up on the commercials. They should blast the advertising throughout the entire year. Keep in peoples faces and minds.
