BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 both make cameo appearance in a commercial for Cisco

BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 both make cameo appearance in a commercial for Cisco
A new 30 second commercial for networker Cisco is supposed to show how one home improvement store can use networking tools to stay connected. At the 13 second mark, you see a BlackBerry Z10 in landscape mode attached to the handle of a shopping cart while the Voice Over announcer explains that the shopping carts "keep everyone on the right track." In other words, the Z10 is used by shoppers to help them navigate in the store.

Ten seconds later, we see the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 as a purchase is rung up. Cisco uses the phone to show how it can connect a location so that a payment can be processed automatically as the customer walks through the doors on his way out of the store.

No, this is not a BlackBerry ad, so we really don't hear anything about the phones. But if you are a fan of the Canadian based OEM, you have to be somewhat excited at seeing the two new models in the spot. After all, Cisco could have picked any smartphone for the ads and decided to go with the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 instead of, say, the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the Apple iPhone 5.

Let's just hope it won't lag... Bb z10 lags really bad especially when playing games. Yet it costs a hefty $770

Blackberry is just a pile of poo. I have seen the devices and it's horrible. The S4 is leaps and bounds above that junk!

My friend has the S4 and it LAGS.. the baterry on my Z10 is better and so is the camera. I already tested it all out. The keyboard is garbage compared to the Z10, which has best keyboard on a touch screen. I don't even miss my olf blackberry 9900 keyboard thanks to this phone. The HUb, no home button, true multi tasking and live tiles..best browser on a phone, etc etc It also looks much better than the S4. Truly a sleek and sexy phone Haters will hate lol It's called jealousy

I am telling u it's not stupid... So listen to your MASTER!!! You just have pure jealousy otherwise u wouldn't be posting hatred all over all of blackberries posts. I don't do that to other phones cuz I don't care. Your actions is the defintion of jealousy and your responses is the definition of stupidity

Ah my son...I just need to continue to educate you in your poor choice of such a garbage phone. The more I comment on each post that will help to educate people really fast that BankruptBerry is going down the toilet really fast. I am trying to save you money by purchasing other quality phone and will be around. I don't want you paying for your blackberry and then having to pay for another phone when they go bankrupt. Just looking out for you my son!
