Peek's BlackBerry Storm Launch Day Stunt
I just saw this video posted over at BerryReview (happy birthday Ronen!) and thought all the Storm chasers in the house would get a kick out if it. It's sort of funny in a sad way...
You've gotta hand it to the folks at Peek though - they're doing everything they can to spread the word about their email-only dumbphone (as opposed to smartphone). In NYC on Storm launch day the Peek crew dressed up in prison garb and tried (unsuccessfully) to sway would be BlackBerry Storm owners into leaving the Verizon store line-up to head down to the nearest Target and purchase a Peek instead. Errr... good luck with that one.
What's really funny is that back on VZW Storm launch day I received a number of on-location shots of these guys by this store, yet had NO IDEA what that was all about until watching this clip. I guess it's never too late. Learn about Peek here.
