Fastest man in the world is a BlackBerry user

Fastest man in the world is a BlackBerry user
The fastest man in the world is Usain Bolt. The Jamaican speedster just set a new Olympic record by running 100 meters in 9.63 seconds. What smartphone would someone like Bolt have? It probably isn't the model you would expect. After all, this is a guy who consumed some McDonald's just before setting a Olympic record.

Once the race was over and Bolt was being interviewed on television, he was asked how he was going to let himself celebrate his new Olympic record before the 200 meter race was to start. Bold said that he had to thank a few people on BBM before resting up for the 200 meter race.

So there it is. The fastest man in the world uses a BlackBerry handset. If RIM is on the ball, they already have made a note to give Mr. Bolt one of the first BlackBerry 10 handsets when it rolls off the line. The fastest man in the world has just promoted your brand after setting a new Olympic record.  You can't pay enough for that kind of exposure.

He is the fastest "sprinter." 9.63 seconds for 100 meter is very fast.

Blackberrys are like muscle cars. They may all look the same but they're classic and reliable

Bolt did say a few. Not sure if that's usable or not for RIM.

people aren't gonna buy a blackberry just for the fact that bolt uses it! period. RIM has to make a transition in order to survive the already crowded smartphone scene. android perhaps?? would love see that one day!

You don't know how advertising works?

i know how advertising works! all 'm saying is you just don't go buy a product which is s**tty just coz some fellow advertises it.

Then there isn't a reason for Coca Cola to advertise their product anymore? It's a nice reminder no?

If you don't know, then you don't understand advertising. Is there a reason why Coca Cola still advertises for their products? By advertising they are reminding the consumer that their product is there when you decide to make a purchase on soda. There isn't any stopping you if you've already decided on another brand but if you didn't, Coca Cola would probably come up first in your decision due to their advertisements. What Bolt did, lets people know BlackBerry isn't gone, it's still there. It's still an option for unsaturated markets. Understand better?

and wait if you think ads will you better results and better profits. what happened to lumnia series in US??? they spent millions in ads and THEY FAILED!! botton line is if the product you're selling isn't good enough. ads are just useless!!! understand better now???

Advertising vs advertising material.

28. Deerajrp

Posts: 15; Member since: Aug 15, 2010

see i like coke that's why i buy it! advertising makes me want it more that's all. the point is every single person wouldn't buy a product just for the fact that somebody advertises it. ppl might try it once but if they know for a fact that it sucks they won't give a heed to the ads. and you think that blackberry is doing all good now??

So in other words your decision has already been made?

Also soda is a bit cheaper than a phone. You see a cool ad and try it and don't like it, no big you're only out a couple bucks but a phone your stuck with or have to pay restocking fees or garbage like that. Comparing it to soda advertising is a stupid analogy.

I can't believe somebody with a name like that capable of spewing such garbage when it comes to advertising. I guess car manufacturers advertise their stuff for no reason. Shut up before you make an even bigger fool out of yourself.

Aaaaaand I can't believe a piggy like you made such a STUPID analogy. I never said they advertise for no reason I said your comment was retarded. People usually put a lot more thought into a phone than a soda because its on TV. And guess what i've seen Coke ads and it tastes like shit so i'll never have one again no matter how fancy those ads get. Go drink more soda tubby.

Hey, people bought the sidekick just because Paris Hilton said it was HOT and used it herself, so I guess that some people are going to buy blackberry. And, as a matter of fact, there are too many manufacturers running Android these days, blackberry has a better chance of competing now with its own OS then going straight face to face and toe to toe with the likes of Samsung and HTC, if it goes android, it will lose all of its current base (the ones that are keeping it in business) and will gain very little because I can guarantee you, anyone who has a SGSIII or a OneX will not switch to a Android based blackberry.

it been like what? ages ago?? people are far much smarter now a days. and with the advent of phones that we see in the market now i highly doubt anybody would prefer having a blackberry! but then again there is a niche market for it but as you see from the stats lately it's decresing gradually. and if RIM doesn't come up with something new it's gonna go under!!
