    Maybe get Celebrities to have a surprise showing at Pop-Up Stores. I think that will bring a lot attention to BlackBerry. I Know they used Alecia Keys, but this would be a one time thing for a few hours for the celebrity. And having more than just one Celebrity would have more Pull.
    Maybe Bla1ze would possibly be the Celebrity.

    Who is Bla1ze?

    Celebrities aren't cheap... Would you sell enough phones at a pop-up store, or create enough buzz to make it work while?

    I'm not sure how celebrities and pop-up stores would help them sell more software, now that they are almost entirely out of the hardware business.

    Maybe get Celebrities to have a surprise showing at Pop-Up Stores . . . I Know they used Alecia Keys, but this would be a one time thing for a few hours for the celebrity.
    Yeah, it would definitely be a one-time thing.

    Well then you already know this won't work; why do it again?

    I think it will work . Why not use a Local Celebrity. They only used one Celebrity .Power comes in Numbers.
    Maybe have a Pop-Up Store at a Concert or Big Event. Let people know BlackBerry is still alive. Doing it this way is totally different than what Alecia Keys did for BlackBerry. Media would be all over it and it would be unexpected.

    But they aren't still alive in the hardware market...

    DTEK60 was launched with a clearance price, all the other hardware is now marked to sell.... and Chen plans to be out of the hardware selling business by Feb 2017. All he is concerned with is selling what stock they have, and trying to get as many others to license and sell BlackBerry products.... which is probably going to be good for a couple of years at best, before the BlackBerry is no more. The company will go on, or be bought by some larger company (most anyone will be larger).

    What is different about selling products at a Concert or Big Event? Anyway... they are out of the hardware selling business.

    So a pop up store with celebs...ok so they put one up. Then customer goes, where can I get a BB? Does Sprint sell them? No. What about T-Mobile? No. Verizon? Just the Priv. AT&T? Just the Priv. Oh I have to go to Best Buy to get one? Or buy one online? Hmm....

    So they put up a pop-up store and the carriers only sell one model or you have to go Best Buy to find a android based BB or buy it online. Sounds silly, expensive and pointless.
