Blackberry.com doesn't wanna build up hype for PlayBook?

[ Edited ]

How come PlayBook isn't on the front page in section one of Blackberry.com? Instead it seems to be on the last (Fourth) poster on the front page.. *scratch forehead* :mansurprised:

 

This product is REVOLUTIONARY and it needs to be (more) widely known!

RIM was never known to build up hype. I'm still rattled by the PlayBook announcement haha :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Blackberry.com doesn't wanna build up hype for PlayBook?

As i recall it's been on the front page for a few days after offical announcement. I'n certain there will be another landing page for it once it get's close to release. I belive there are several marketing experts at RIM who know what they are doing. Sometimes i don't understand their tactic but i reckon they have reasons :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Blackberry.com doesn't wanna build up hype for PlayBook?

I imagine the hype building will start to come closer to release.

 

No sense in hyping people up for a product they can't get for at least 3 more months.

I doubte RIM is in the hyping business since they create products primarly aimed at the business market.

Re: Blackberry.com doesn't wanna build up hype for PlayBook?

How do we all get here? Isn't it because of buzz around free PlayBook? They have successfully created honey pot for coders (bzz, bzzz little coder bee - here you have free honey), it was very effective (in first three days one thousand of applications got posted).

 

They will buzz for customers later, we will see lot's of 'uPod killer' news in the press.

Re: Blackberry.com doesn't wanna build up hype for PlayBook?

I read one small article on Engadget and I got lucky that I didn't miss it. Where did you get your App World numbers?

Re: Blackberry.com doesn't wanna build up hype for PlayBook?

@zezke: I was sure that it was Q3 RIM Earning report, but after some digging it looks like error in translation. The original sentence was that there was 1000 new developers registered (or there it is incorrectly written in the page I saw it). In other page I found that 1000 new app was submitted. I'm confused now.
