New BlackBerry Torch commercial; RIM's marketing pushes on
The bike messenger in the ad demonstrates the tab feature of BlackBerry 6's upgraded WebKit browser. The DJ then tells how he likes to make playlists on the Torch. Neither of these functions are revolutionary, but the ad as a whole is part of RIM's continued effort to grab hold of the consumer market, which is currently dominated by the Apple and Google OS's.
The marketing push (re: Torch whale ad) is no surprise given RIM and AT&T's disappointment with the Torch's sales. The Torch is facing fierce competition placed alongside the iPhone 4 and Android devices which make the once-revolutionary RIM look like it's playing catch-up.

I don't know...RIM isn't making deals with Verizon regarding limited net neutrality on handsets...I'll take an open internet on a Blackberry over one proposed by Google and Verizon...but if you want to blindly follow Google and Android...I guess that makes you a robot...
