Dave Hopkinson CCO at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, Powered by BlackBerry

Dave Hopkinson is the CCO at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment and due to that job, he’s a busy fellow with needs for a device with a long lasting battery. In his case, that would be a BlackBerry Z30. A new BlackBerry ad featuring him has now landed on the official BlackBerry YouTube page and this time around, it’s featuring the kinda new for a video ad slogan “Powered by BlackBerry”.

Considering these days any time anyone sticks their name on an endorsement, people go looking for which device they seem to use on a daily basis for whatever reason (Hi Ellen!) I’ll spare everyone the trouble. Dave has been a consistently using a BlackBerry device for at least the past 360-ish days now, he is using BlackBerry Z30 together with his iPhone and an iPad and seems to be working out pretty well.

BlackBerry CEO, John Chen speaks about White House talks, future devices, T-Mobile and more!

BlackBerry CEO, John Chen speaks about White House talks, future devices, T-Mobile and more!

BlackBerry CEO John Chen spoke with Bloomberg yesterday and got to talk about a few interesting things in the BlackBerry world. He spoke at least about the company’s strategy and other enterprise related topics, which have become the norm in this newly focused BlackBerry. He also touched on the name BlackBerry vs Research In Motion, the latter which he actually liked better.

Chen mentioned BlackBerry has also been briefed by the White House in terms of what they like, and don’t necessarily love about their BlackBerry solution, and how the company takes that into consideration for the future.

The Q20 was not left out of the conversation either though. According to Chen, he’d like to have it out “yesterday,” but making sure the UI and phone are modern, while still retaining the controls so many Bold 9900 users out there love, takes time. You can’t rush merging those two things together. Chen expects the Q20 to be launched in the September/October time frame, which means we’re only about 6 months away.
