    How is Kim still using the Bold in 2016?
    I mean there's nothing wrong with it but surely Blackberry would of at least sent her phones in the past to upgrade it. This is probably a lot of the younger people think Blackberry is still stuck in those days with the OS7 because they thinking she can't upgrade it. Lol. If she had the Classic or Passport (why would you send her a touch screen phone when she clearly wants a pkb) for free from Blackberry I'm sure she would at least use it a few times.

    Apparently she already has the Classic and the Priv.

    Maybe she prefers something more pocketable like a Q5 or Q10.
    Really can't blame her. Bold 9900 is still a solid device.

    Well it seems like Alex Thurber is sending her a DTEK50 to try out. In my opinion, that's a mistake from BlackBerry. The DTEK50 is like any other android slab with just some extra BlackBerry features. Also it doesn't even have a keyboard that Kim is HUGE fan of. Alex should've convinced her to go for the Classic or the Passport.

    She seems to have a Priv that is gathering dust, much like the space between her ears.

    I'm confused. People actually believe tons of people are going to run out and get a Blackberry because Kim K likes them?
    This is free marketing promo, you know how much BlackBerry will pay for her if they assign her formal like once BlackBerry did with alicia keys and I love how BlackBerry react to her ""We're here for our customers and loyal fans *and I've got Kim covered," said*BlackBerry*senior vice-president Alex*Thurber.*

    Looks like BlackBerry is going to help her get a new device after all.

    This it the BEST time to roll out a new PKB model of blackberry .. Give her something to try along side the priv and classic ... I think that BB has to spend a bit of money to keep her using the newest phone for a year or so and see how that pans out in the marketplace ... I think money well spent if they can keep the attention on it ... She's quite good at product placement .. How about a priv style commercial with KIM K starring all wet and soapy .. But this time .. in colour ..
    Companies pay her hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars to promote their stuff, and usually her tweets and Instagram stuff is clearly basically a commercial for some product.

    But she tweets about BlackBerry for FREE, and equally as important, she genuinely loves their product (Bold).

    People buy her clothes and apps and all the other stuff she slaps her name on, you just can't put anything about her fans, for better or for worse..

    BlackBerry should have her advertise their new line of android devices and watch the sales roll in!

    She already has, and if they turn it into official advertising then it loses force, particularly for a product that most people are resistant towards..

    'she's only using it/advertising it because she's getting paid' rather than it being on the value the product brings

    I'm sure she doesn't want an android phone as she has her iPhone for apps and other fun stuff. My recommendation would be a Classic as it's the next best after the Bold!

    Clever of Thurber to mention DTEK50 but it was obviously little more than a marketing ploy on his part. They should partner with Kim on the release of a new BlackBerry "Kim K signature edition". Who needs Porsche? I can see it already...a new BlackBerry Mercury option in rose gold with 100MP selfie camera. Just make sure it can be neatly tucked into a purse.

    The community doesn't have consensus on anything. Do you perhaps mean just listen to the people who think like you?

    Well he's a new member of the BlackBerry team but I don't see any success coming out from him to be honest. Guess only time will tell!

    Why is everyone under the assumption that she has never tried a BB10 device? For someone as die hard a Blackberry fan as she is I highly doubt she is unaware that they have other devices since the Bold.

    I don't think Alex thurber is an id.iot.. He is doing a good job.. If its Chen we would have heard nothing from him.. The guy wouldn't give a rats A**.. Thurber is communicating with people and was quick to say the PKB is here to stay when some idiots in the press said its the end of BlackBerry's Keyboard (Although they know a new device with a PKB will be released).

    If thurber didn't say anything he would've been heavily criticized here in CrackBerry for saying nothing.. Shaking my head really, you can never win with people here.. Regarding Kim trying the Classic, Passport and Priv.. I'm 100% she played with all of them.. There are pictures out there for her with a Priv, Q10 and even a classic.. She said before that she doesn't like the new devices very much and something about the Passport being too big..

    She loves her Bold and that's that.. She is also doing the whole tweets thing for attention.. Come on who are we kidding here, The Bold is all over Ebay, even being sold new on amazon.. She makes me feel that her Bold is the last bold on planet earth.. For God's sake I can still get a new Nokia from 2006, let alone a bloody 2011 device.. Kim is Kim and she longs for attention.. So lets not overthink & over-analyze the whole thing.. The Average person can buy the Bold, she can buy enough of them to last until 2099.. So what are we discussing here?!

    The classic seems like the only logical path, but if she has tried and doesn't think it lives up to the bold heritage I don't know what to say.

    Yeah that'd be pretty good. I've usually got a popular opinion - I always find that what I think, others also think. I'm not being nasty, it's just what I've noticed.
