Sprint uses sleight of hand to make Android model run on the BlackBerry OS
Sprint's advertising agency might have been out to lunch on this one. A recent commercial for the Android flavoredMotorola Admiral showed the handset, which strongly resembles a BlackBerry model thanks to the physical QWERTY keyboard under the screen. One part of the ad showed a close-up of the device in use which gave viewers a chance to view the OS on the phone. Somebody must have been fooled by the resemblance because a good look at the screen shows that the Motorola Admiral in the ad isn't running Android like it should, and instead is running the BlackBerry OS.

The average television viewer or smartphone user might not have even noticed the gaffe, and it might have had nothing to do with that lookalike QWERTY on the Motorola Admiral. But common sense tells us that someone mistook the phone for a BlackBerry device and inserted the incorrect OS in the ad. It's not a big deal and we're sure that the boo-boo hasn't cost Sprint any sales of the device. It's just a story for you to chuckle about and pass along at the water cooler heading into the weekend.
