There are some things that are very Canadian, among them the amount of snow, the maple leaf, as well as BlackBerry. Yes sir, BlackBerry – the smartphone company that has not really been doing too well for quite some time already. In fact, Windows Phone has just narrowly edged out BlackBerry over in the US, and you know that times are getting desperate when BlackBerry’s CEO, John Chen, has called iPhone users as “wall huggers”, simply because the iPhone’s battery life tends to be a whole lot shorter, and needs to be hooked up to a power outlet more often than – a BlackBerry, I suppose, eh Chen? Come on now, surely we are above name calling? How about doing things with a little bit more class instead, like in the ad above? After all, if your product is good enough, folks would buy it.
Smartphone manufacturers like Samsung have come up with a “mini” version of their flagship models in the past, which does not work as though it was some sort of miniaturized version of the real deal, as some of its bits and pieces have been downsized or are not up to par. I suppose users are able to live with that, and the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini, which has been in circulation for 17 months now, has received yet another iteration in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini Value Edition, where it has already gone on sale if you happen to live in the land that is full of windmills, that is, the Netherlands.
