We have been running some interesting discussions on the BlackBerry brand for a while now. My incendiary article, What Did You Say Was Wrong With BlackBerry? has attracted over a hundred comments in the roughly one week that it has been online.
As a followup to that, I put up another article to give BlackBerry users a chance to tell us about their experiences with the brand.
Unknown to us, the folks at RIM PR here in Lagos had been following the two discussions. Yesterday evening, I received a phone call from an official there and we talked about the articles. The part that will interest you is that we were sent a brand new BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 to give out to one lucky commenter on the second article dedicated to BlackBerry users.
Hi second comment reads:
That said I’m sticking with the BlackBerry brand till death do us part! Lol.
I’m already planning on getting an OS 7 device soon
His dream just came true faster than he thought – and for free too. The top dog BlackBerry is his!
Congrats, Chukwudi. Do mail your address to mobility AT mobility.com.ng, so we can ship your device to you next week.
NB: Our thanks to the folks at RIM for the BlackBerry 9900 gift!
