Sounds awesome! But I'd settle for q10 availability in the US. Isn't that what BlackBerry is really about...actually selling products

Remember when some rap guy (50-cent?) a few years ago tweeted or posted something somewhere about some "super hot" penny stock and how his fans should buy it? A lot of people did buy the stock, and then the dude cashed in. It ended up being his stock/company, and he got investigated for stock fraud. Keys should do something like this but with Blackberry (and less borderline illegal). How many shout-outs as she given about Blackberry? Every one of her fans should go out an buy BB; that's what she should do to earn her title. Maybe she already is and I just don't have her on Twitter?

A while ago there was a Seeking Alpha article on how she could sell a few million BlackBerry 's if a fraction of her fans decided to buy. I posted a thread on it. Hard to measure what affect she may be having.

I remember that! What's the url to your thread? It would be an interesting read.

Definitely agree with unquantifiable number of BB's sold because of her direct or indirect influence, though it would still be interesting for someone to even give it cloudy shot.

She is fine upon fine, and her talent is greater than that, and she is rockin a Blackberry! Be still my heart.

Why should I care. She's just BlackBerry's eye candy. What's her real job there anyway. Oh right. Sing her way to her own corporate success. If she get us Skype and Shazam maybe that will be productive.

I wonder how she talks to her fans now. She hasn't posted on instagram since she got caught posting on her iPhone then lied about it being hacked. We don't need a blatant liar representing bbry

So when do people detect that the line has been crossed from a true supporter of a product, to merely a hired spokesperson? How should Keys walk this line? And is she being successful so far? That's what I'm interested in. Do people already shout "BS!" about her role with BBRY, or is she actually making a difference in sales and mindshare/marketshare? I hope for the latter, because I don't like wasted effort, time, and finances.

She's there to promote herself. Nothing about her tells me she is working for bbry. And aside from her direct bbry campaigns she doesn't seem to be doing anything for the brand. Simply ramming her music to people already aware of bbry. We need someone to bring people to bbry who otherwise wouldn't.

Yeah, he's probably cheaper. And he knows all about big comebacks! Hahaha! Foooorrrre! Go Sens!

There was another Seeking Alpha article titled "BlackBerry 's secret weapon: Women" in which the writer pointed out something like 45% of BlackBerry users were women. I doubt BlackBerry is paying her anything near what they are paying the Mercedes F1 team and I have not heard any complaints about that sponsorship.

I don't see why Thorsten is the face of BlackBerry. All the old BlackBerry users will buy this phone, I am one of them. To get the younger generation, get this phone in the hands of their idols. Alicia who? She is awesome. But is she as awesome as every college student, high schooler and the young professionals demographic who will actually fork out the cost for one of these phones prematurely. Come on! FYI - love my Z10.

Sweet so she is performing, my girlfriend will be stoked we didn't know for sure since the agenda wasn't too clear on that.

Meh. I couldn't give a smaller shit away if I wrapped it in gold foil and called it an Almond Roca. Why didn't BlackBerry get someone relevant or interesting to do their fake marketing?!

Why do people think this lady is talented or good? She is awful and it pains me to listen to that "girl on fire" song. Why is she not literally on fire?
