BlackBerry is really desperate to get new customers, Best Buy launches a cool new color for the DROID Turbo and Google gets the biggest Android advertising around.
BlackBerry is growing desperate and announcing what they call a holiday special. To me it seems like the only ones winning will be them, but if you are interested in getting a BlackBerry Passport you may get up to $550 for trading in your iPhone.
Officially, you would be getting $400 in credit, but BlackBerry would then give you an extra $150 for getting a BlackBerry Passport. Of course, it all depends on which iPhone you have. The $400 credit is probably for a shiny iPhone 6 Plus.
Opinion: Those who follow me know I have more than a few words to say about BlackBerry, but ultimately I kinda like the Passport. Does it beat a brand new iPhone 6? Not in my opinion, but the Passport is a pretty darn cool phone.
Best Buy is so big in the USA that it manages to snag some exclusive colors for itself. The latest addition is the Best Buy-exclusive Motorola DROID Turbo, which is now available in blue.
The device will be available for the same $200 you can find it elsewhere, so if you like blue this may be your chance to finally get what you want.
Opinion: And don’t forget, the Motorola DROID Turbo has one of the largest batteries in any smartphone, carrying a whopping 3900 mAh of juice to keep your device alive for a good time.
Google is really going big with its latest advertising campaign. The whole idea is that there is a good phone, tablet, wearable or device available for everyone. Google has it all, and they are making a product line that extends to every part of the world. We are “together, but not the same”.
Opinion: I kinda love the natural feeling of this advertising. It’s classy, subtle, interactive and fun. I wish I could see it in person.
