    Just a quick comment on the marketing of BlackBerry.

    With several devices (Priv being one) coming to market with big expectations, again and again. I think BlackBerry is afraid to promote a device until they know it is accepted by the consumers. Wait for a little more time, if the feedback is positive then market it. No matter how much advertising you do, the ultimate advertising is the consumer. If you Advertise a great product advertising really works well, advertising a not so great product will eventually fail. I thought Priv was a great phone, most reviews were negative or just OK. Detek60 is much better. I don’t see any downside. Even the battery is almost twice that of the Priv. Finger print scanner works perfectly, wish I had this a long time ago.
    Everything is really good, price also. Market this phone and it may work.
