BlackBerry CEO John Chen took T-Mobile to task today for a campaign it recently ran suggesting that BlackBerry customers drop their BlackBerry in favor of a different smartphone on T-Mobile. In a post to the company's blog, Chen thanked BlackBerry's customers for speaking out in protest of the "clearly inappropriate and ill-conceived marketing promotion." Chen said it is working on a special promotion for T-Mobile BlackBerry customers that it will reveal soon. Chen finished by saying, "I would like to remind [T-Mobile] that our long-standing partnership was once productive and profitable for both BlackBerry and T-Mobile. I hope we can find a way forward that allows us to serve our shared customers once again. Notwithstanding the current challenge, we remain very excited about BlackBerry’s future."

T-Mobile did their customers a favor
BB10 is a much different experience
BB needs to get real about the price point of their devices. Selling the Z10 at iPhone prices was lunacy. If BB wants to compete in the consumer market, it needs to get it's pricing in line w/ a consumer market. Getting BB10 into the prepaid market cannot be understated. Many consumers are going this route. If I were BB, I'd consider turning all those write-downs of the Z10 into prepaids and get BB10 out there into the public's hands.
