    Thanks to Kevin for opening up this Forum.

    I'd already shared this update as a comment in one of the articles on the BB F1 articles posted by Kev. Sharing this once again since we now have an appropriate thread for such matters.

    The below is the response from the manufacturers of teamwear for Mercedes GP. I will post any updates I have from them. You can also share ideas and requests for specific branded accessories and I'd be more than happy to share it with them.

    Dear ,

    Since the partnership still is new we have not been able to get any co-branded merchandise yet.

    It might take some time since the production takes time.


    I am sorry that I cant give you any more information right now and I apologize about the inconvenience.

    We are working on it and we really want to get co-branded items on the market as soon as possible.

    Med Vnliga Hlsningar / Best regards

    Hi,

    Would you please let me know why we dont see any Blackberry Branding on any of your products. I'm a huge fan of both the Mercedes AMG and the Blackberry Branding and I was thrilled to see the partnership announcement.

    It'll be great if you can let me know when and where I can purchase some accessories and apparel with co-branding. We've got about a few hundreds odd fans I know that would jump at buying something like this.

    Do let me know? Thanks!!

    Sweet, hope to see some team merchandise at the CrackBerry store.

    Otherwise, I will be hitting up the souvenir stand at the F1 in Montreal this year.

    I'd really like a Mercedes Team hat, but it MUST have BlackBerry branding on the ffront, side or back, and it must be prominent.

    Kevin...you should be the North American distributor for the F1 swag from Mercedes. I can't imagine anyone else with a more compelling argument than MN and CB.

    I'll take a few hats, some polo shirts and a jacket please.

    I've sent them a request for a catalog. I'll post it up here if I get a response.

    Keep the ideas flowing. We need to have something that's signature BlackBerry... Lets say; a productivity oriented item... classy enough to take to a meeting, yet SHOUTS BlackBerry AND AMG...

    I received a response from Mercedes F1 This week saying since the partnership was last minute the merchandise does NOT feature BlackBerry "logotype." Bummer. I would paste it from my email but can't figure out how to on my PlayBook.
