Superbowl PlayBook Ad

[ Edited ]

I'd be suprised if RIM doesn't show off PlayBook for the Superbowl to reach a massive audience and to increase general public awareness of PlayBook. Man Very Happy

Re: Superbowl PlayBook Ad

I think there are more appropriate forums for such non-development-related topics, including crackberry.com where the same thing has been discussed at length.  It sounds like if you were to register there you'd find a like-minded audience for such talk.

I'm hoping they will atleast reveal the launch date. Man Very Happy

 

Xoom is coming out the Feb 17th (rumored). HP Palm webos Topaz is coming out in March.

 

 

I'm sure RIM has strategic plans in place. Man Happy

The Black Eyed Peas performed Dirty Bit during half time. I was hoping they would show the playbook like in their video.

The Xoom had a nice commercial.

Sounds like the closest they got was the Chatter.com commercial, with will.i.am (or his Baby Pea version) holding a cartoon PlayBook.  

 

Really a bit of a missed opportunity, with the whole "playbook"+football+BEPs+timing thing.

Indeed. Which makes me worried that the reason they didn't have one was because they're not going to hit March as a launch date, and it's going to come later. That's the only reason I can see for them not doing a commercial - they don't want to bring the hype that a Super Bowl commercial will create when they don't have a product ready for several months.

 

I hope I'm wrong.

Re: Superbowl PlayBook Ad

That was disappointing Man Sad

 

My assumption is RIM is very confident of the sales figures PlayBook can achieve even without advertising. Smiley Happy
