    From the referenced site:

    Still, Mr. Becker noted the pitch isnt aimed at replacing consumers smartphones; they can still have an iPhone for play and a BlackBerry for work. That keeps the company out of the pitched battle in the category between Apple, Samsung and leaner competitors. That war is not on their doorstep, Mr. Becker said.

    They've moved the doorstep!

    I guess the loss of their largest customer will cause many layoffs at BlackBerry's former ad agency, Thousand Monkeys at a Thousand Typewriters, Inc.

    LOL... Agree ;-)

    It's a nice move.
    It proves that they finally recognize the need!

    Now, let's hope they make the right ads!

    I agree with you Jim. Also will help building the awareness and the brand image of BlackBerry products.

    I would like to see work done by the agency. Get a feel for what they do and maybe what they can do for BlackBerry

    Seriously though, I really hope this helps. There seems to be good momentum with the Passport, hopefully it'll carry on with the Classic and beyond - some marketing should help.

    I was quite happy to see The passport on Discovery channel -Daily Planet last night as a new innovative device....They did a nice little comparison between SIRI & Blackberry assistant in which Assistant defiantly excelled. Also made some mention to Blend~!!

    It's going to take shelling out a lot of money to rehab the brand image if they want to do it quickly.

    Agreed, but then someone had to approve the campaign, hopefully that group/ person has gone or given something else to do.

    He probably did before, but they wanted to wait until a new phone and better sales. No point in hiring an ad agency for phones that are 8 months to 2 years old. They probably could have done it before passport launch, but at least it's done

    Why hire a new ad company? To show us what the phone can do? Preposterous! It would be faster to show us what I couldn't do.
