    That was the simple question put to Stephen Bates (MD Blackberry Europe) on the BBC Radio 5 business segment yesterday morning.
    Despite repeating the question about 4 times all we heard from Mr Bates was some unintelligible mixture of ManagementSpeak/DoubleSpeak/Gobbledegook. In the end the presenter (Nicky Campbell) gave up and more or less invited the listeners to do the same on BlackBerry. I was left feeling annoyed that a golden chance to publicise the BB10 launch (which was only 6 hours away at that point) was lost by some misguided exec.
    Did anyone else hear the interview?

    Why was Nicky Campbell insisting on asking questions about the past when Bates was there to talk about the future.

    Campbell, as a "journalist" for the BBC, has an obligation for impartiality which he didn't respect yesterday. If he doesn't like a product - obviously without having tried it - then he should at least show a little class and not "more or less invited the listeners to do the same". That's not what he's paid for.
