Super Bowl Ad News: RIM Will Run A Super Bowl Ad For Blackberry 10

Blackberry announced today they will, for the first time have a 30-second ad buy for the Super Bowl this year. The timing could not be any better for RIM as Thorsten Heins officially announced today in a press release, that the BlackBerry 10 Launch event is to be held on January 30, 2013. The event will happen simultaneously in multiple countries around the world, where details of the smartphones and their availability will be announced.

"A Super Bowl commercial is a great opportunity to show the redesigned, re-engineered and reinvented BlackBerry to tens of millions of consumers on the largest advertising stage of the year," RIM CMO Frank Boulben said in a statement.

The commercial to run during the Big Game is the work of creative ad agency AMV BBDO, London and we are looking forward to seeing it.
