Sprint Throws in Exotic Island with $10.5 Million Cellphoneposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 8/21/2007 09:09:00 AM
The phone ad is heralding the arrival of the BlackBerry 8830 world edition phone by Research in Motion Limited USA (Nasdaq RIMM) and it's all a very big joke.The ad is very cheeky. Did I mention? Island amenities may include: thatched cabana, combination helipad / island dock, Olympic-size negative edge pool and putting green and sand trap?
This is just the type of thing you would expect from Research in Motion Limited whose stock has been a high flyer lately. The stock split 3 for 1 yesterday and it's gone from a split adjusted price of $40 to 80 in just 8 months. What a crazy ride! If we are in a bubble, then RIMM is leading the charge. Load up on the stock!
Update: A reader wrote in to say, "the ad for Sprint's BlackBerry was heralded by Sprint's agency of record, Goodby Silverstein and Partners and was managed by Sprint"
