Dave Hopkinson is the CCO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, and yes, that is the company that owns the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs, one of the original six NHL franchises. The company also owns the NBA's Toronto Raptors (currently leading the Atlantic Division) and the arena that both play in. Being a Canadian company, guess what phone Hopkinson uses? If you guessed BlackBerry, you're absolutely right...

Would be amazing if we had at least 4 (if not more) solid competitive platforms starting with Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Blackberry. Pretty exciting to see windows phone improving so much; blackberry is a bit quiet for now.

Blackberry is just quietly improving which is quietly brilliant.

Blackberrys strategy to Connecting People is Quietly Brilliant. They have to Think Different.

"Will others viewing this ad feel compelled to also be Powered by BlackBerry?"

25 hrs of battery life? Go buy a Nokia. Especially the dumbphones. It will give you 48hrs or more battery life on average use.

Try texting all day, watch a few youtube videos, capturing and sending multiple pictures, making a few phone calls and Facebooking, twittering, checking emails on a Nokia dumbphone for one day and see if it makes it a month.
It's amazing what people expect from these smartphones vs the older phones. You have a freaking computer that does nearly everything and people say "My battery doesn't last a day". Meanwhile in third world countries...
BTW, war Blackberry!
I hope their next phone is off the charts and when they advertise it on TV they should play the song "Moma Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J or more specifically the lyrics "Don't call it a comeback I been here for years".

Sponsored characters, Dave publicly displays blackberry, tinkers with his iphone backstage. Ellen given note 3 on stage, reverts back to her iphone backstage. Alicia keys sends a tweet after being named blackberry creative director using her iphone. David Ferrer tweets his love for his s4 on...you guessed it, his iphone ;)

Ellen is in contract with Samsung. If she is caught using any other brand she will be sued, so I doubt what you say is true. Yes she can afford the lawsuit but her character will be questioned and you know what they say about the rich and their character.
