It's the Stephen Fry endorsement that I think will have a real, positive impact.

shupor

Actually it's a combination of all the celebrities endorsing it. I for one have no idea who he is and i'm sure there are several other people who do not either. Different things matter to different people and that is what makes as all unique as humans. All these endorsements will definitely have a unique demographic that they will appeal to

lorax1284

I know almost all of them, yet only Stephen Fry's opinion is one that would influence me. If he mentioned an app or a book or something, I'd be inclined to check it out... not so with Piers Morgan, who I guess would just be schmoozing up a guest on his program.

imcurved

Agree. I don't know who Stephen Fry is (*I should look him up*) but I wouldn't weight too much on Piers Morgan's opinion about tech stuff. Besides, he didn't exactly tell us how he felt about it. His tweet doesn't count. In any case, it's good to see support of different celebs.

shupor

LOL!! I'm with you on Piers Morgan. I would steer away from anything he recommends too which makes me glad he didn't specifically endorse the phone

AlKuqo

THIS IS GREAT....some big name celebrities will definitely make an impact to the "cool" factor of BlackBerry.
They have all different segments, from music, to news anchors, writers and hip hop moguls, and to top it all off...SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL.

It's a good time to be a BlackBerry DieHard!

Ben1232

Yeah Stephen is pretty cool.

As a Brit, its kinda good that I don't recognise most of the rest as I assume they're American & RIM needs to build up some excitement there.

NamelessStar

haha tyson chandler and jr smith nice to see bballers on BB10

BionicKris

+1 Go NY Go NY Go! #NYKNation

ekafara

I know some celebs would do it because they like BB, but I wonder how much the others were paid.

BruvvaPete2

Yeah. It's all a part of a conspiracy... Give your head a shake.

ekafara

Yeah, they always do stuff for free...

dietertong

Although they may not be doing it for free necessarily, in the UK there are laws that state even tweets that are paid for must be clearly stated that they are in fact advertisements

J_R_TheMotorMan

I'm a celebrity too! Where the freak is My early X10!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To. HELL with them!!! If it doesn't make dollars, how does it make sense????????

vgorous

Piers Morgan would be a good role model to advertise the BB10 to business and execs.

stevejb

@Lord_Sugar tweeted on 17th Dec "Interesting preview of #BlackBerry10 with @UK_BlackBerry boss @rob__orr Look forward to getting my hands on the real deal next month"

And @Amscreen_Simon tweeted "Like the "Peak" feature! See the video to see just what makes the new #BlackBerry10 browser so special http://bbry.lv/XvCd6N @UK_BlackBerry"

Lord Sugar is undoubtedly one of the biggest role models to Business and execs.

Masahiro

I'm a celebrity too. Mom said so. :-(

kg4icg

you sure she didn't say cerebral?

mckillio

If I retweeted any of those, my non-BB friends would make fun of me.

mckillio

And it therefore wouldn't help me get them back on the BB ship, which is exactly what I was hoping would happen when I clicked on this article.

iToya

Well, I've been endorsing BB10 for weeks now..where's my celebrity shout out?

jk, it's good to see a diverse group of people excited about the upcoming phones.

moonfalle

thanks for the article ). Another one I saw this morning is Adele.

BBVegasGirl80

Awesome! I'm a fan so I'll definitely RT her tweet. :-)

ferre_kun

Really? Awesome! Adele has lots of fans here *goes to check on twitter*

EDIT: can't find any tweet about bb10 on Adele' verified twitter account..

tprime

So the NY Knocks got a sneak peak at BB10? I guess Camelot isn't on board.

lorax1284

be honest... did autocorrect get the better of you? ;-)

tprime

So the NY Knicks got a sneak peak at BB10. I guess Carmelo isn't on board.

17asleep

I guess if that wanker piers Morgan thinks its good, then I will have to re-evaluate if I want one or not.

eanupe09

Tyson Chandler and J.R are the best to me . Let's go Knicks BB10 here we come

Rootbrian

Retweet those damn tweets!! :D

ferre_kun

Does bono from U2 has RIM shares? I know some celebrities are into tech company stocks things, like bono. If he has RIM shares he should make some shouts too on twitter. If he don't have shares, too bad for him missing the chance to buy when it's cheap last year :p

I want to see Will I Am and David Guetta tweeting #teamblackberry ^^
