In case you're wondering why that girl you gave your number to isn't calling you back: Stealth marketing: When you're being pitched and you don't even know it!
"I was with a bunch of hot girls and we would just walk into bars, whip out our BlackBerries and try to get guys to look at them by flirting," says Royter. "We'd say, xxx8216;Put your number in my phone and I'll totally call you. We'll go out on a date!' But we just wanted them to try the BlackBerry. I definitely didn't call anyone."
In Thailand I noticed that they had a very effective advertising campaign. Stars and models would be photographed at events holding their Blackberries. Sometimes even as blatant as standing in front of a Blackberry banner. Extremely effective as one person asked to buy my Blackberry from me. Two years ago no one there knew what a BB was there. There are now Chinese made knock offs with normal cell phone guts, but very convincing cases.
