    I'm asking this because every technology ad I see is about Windows 8 or iOS. I have litterally NEVER seen a BB10 ad yet. Do they even exist?
    I know this has probably already been asked before, but it's kind of frustrating always seeing Windows and Apple ads and never BlackBerry ones.
    Thanks.

    Lately.... NO


    Back after the launch in the US.... YES. Was never really impressed by the BlackBerry Z10 ads, but they were pretty regular there for a while. I think one week I saw the ads four or five times on TV. No puffs of colored smoke... and no excitement.


    At this point BlackBerry has most likely spent what they had planned to spend on advertising, and with no new revenues coming in (beauce BB10 was a flop)... they don't have anymore to spend.

    Where MS has plenty of money to spend on Windows 8 for Computers, Tablets and Phones... each a different sector and division, but all benefiting each other.

    Yesterday I saw the autotrader ad during baseball. And they were saying that the app was available on the AppStore, GooglePlay and Blackberry World!!!

    I think it's the first time I see an app commercial like that.

    On a side note though I always see BlackBerry commercials on TV in Canada.

    That's actually good. I very rarely see app ads that say "available on BlackBerry World". What TV channels do you see BB10 ads?

    I remember seeing one just before I got my Q10, which was about 6 weeks ago. Haven't seen one since.

    In the UK.

    That's because your in the US maybe.

    I see almost two BBRY ads for every other ad here. Including on Roku commercials and TV.

    Posters at events. And ads on gadget sites I visit too.

    In Canada and I don't see any ads on TV although when the Z10 came out, I saw the ads a few times but they were worthless, not clear regarding the advantages of BB10 (time shift camera, keyboard, etc), and did not show anything that would cause anyone to go out and buy one.

    I have seen a few for the Q10, as far as Z10 goes I don't think I have seen any other than the dumb commercials of " keep moving"

    low BB10 adoption rate because of the fail marketing.
    it's just too obvious.

    the general public is still clueless about BB10, most still think it's still the same old OS7-like phones.

    I believe that the reason for this is that a broad-based marketing campaign with advertisements on TV and elsewhere cost a lot of money, and BlackBerry doesn't have a lot of it to burn.

    haven't seen anything in the UK for months, like since BGT was on!! I have however seen many iphone5c ads (don't think iv noticed a 5s advert yet) and quite a few windows ads and the usual galaxy ads too.

    seriously if I didn't visit this iste I wouldn't know that the Z30 was available in the UK

    Pretty sure it was sportsnet, or maybe ctv.. anyways it was during football finally.

    And I mostly watch TV for sports so the ads are on sports channels for sure!

    but you would lol. web advertising uses the browser cookies of what you've been looking at, so by visiting CB you `should` get targeted BB ads.

    In the U.S., when the Z10 was released, there was this commercial:



    which has good music, is kinda hip, shows the Z10, but has no text to explain what features you're looking at. At 1 minute, it must have been expensive to air, since most commercials are 30 seconds.

    When the Q10 came out, there was this commercial:



    which doesn't show anything unique between the old BlackBerry's and new BlackBerry's. No statement of new rebuilt OS, faster browser, etc. For the general public who know BlackBerry for the keyboard, it looks like the same rehash of previous BlackBerry's.

    BlackBerry needs to state that they rebuilt the OS from scratch, giving a new experience (otherwise people expect the same and aren't happy when they pick up a BB10 phone), focus commercials on a few unique features (or even just one, like Nokia does with the camera), and show that they're focused on the future.
