    And RIM is no more, just FYI to the person that called them that. It's BlackBerry now.
    FYI, I would like to call the OS BlackBerry, and the company Research In Motion. Those names just carry a lot of meaning for me. Especially Research In Motion. It just sounds cooler, for me.

    Blackberry Z10 by Research In Motion vs Blackberry Z10 by Blackberry. Damn right RIM sounds better (except when people made all the rim job jokes I guess)

    seems to me that Microsoft is leaving it to indivual WP device makers to market WP.

    In Sweden I have seen one BB user (2007) ever and I have never seen an ad for it or any mentioning of it on TV or in any papers or magazines that wasnt tech related...ever.
    A lot of people here believes that BB is some sort of sms-system that doesn't work in Europe.
    But WP8 is getting some attention on billboards and in phone adds.

    I agree with you. The notion that large corporations behave as though they were patriotic nationals is very outdated. Companies like MSFT and BBRY spend their marketing budgets based on expected ROI, not based on sentimental ties to geopolitical boarders. For BB10, that amounts to marketing them where Blackberrys are already popular AND consumers have the incomes to afford such expensive hardware... those two criteria leave Canada as one of very few 1st world economies worth spending marketing dollars in. That explains what you are seeing.

    I'm in Canada and I really don't see too much buzz around BB10 or the Z10 this week compared to the week they launched.

    With less than 2 billion in cash on hand, BBRY doesn't have the cash to sustain carpet marketing efforts for too long either. BBRY's entire cash reserves amounts to Microsoft's W8 and WP8 world wide marketing budget, and even that didn't get MS noticed everywhere.

    The amount of times I got RIM jobbed by the Curve is unreal...

    Sir. You watch entirely too much television. This is unacceptable, and I'm putting you on a timeout from TV.

    The FCC had some cut backs so he is the only guy left to monitor the whole shebang.
