What’s This? BLACKBERRY Fact Check Goes All UTB?

Come On Then!

We founded UTB as we were absolutely sick and tired of the lies that were propagated and regurgitated as fact by BlackBerry’s competitors and their cheerleaders. Every where you went, if you attempted to disprove these lies with FACT then you were drowned out in howls of derision and, frankly, abuse.

Since then we have been committed to fighting back on behalf of BlackBerry fans everywhere, exposing the flaws and weaknesses of those who would seek to hide them from us all. It might just be our little corner of the internet but by God we’re fighting our corner.

NOW, it seems, BlackBerry are fighting back too.

Today, in an Inside BlackBerry blog, Mark Wilson, Senior Vice President of Marketing introduces BlackBerry Fact Check, here’s what he has to say…

BlackBerry has been in the limelight for many reasons, with people talking about everything from the unmatched reputation of our security to the latest device rumors to our vision for the Internet of Things. We expect this; we know we’re one of the most watched brands out there and our transformation is on public display.

As we’ve been working through this transition, there have been many vocal voices from competitors trying to incite fear, uncertainty and doubt about BlackBerry. In doing so, sensationalized reports surrounding our viability and misperceptions about our product portfolio have crowded the airwaves.

Given this environment, we must fight back. And BlackBerry’s best offense is to present the facts.

Today we are launching the BlackBerry Fact Check Portal, a place for us to hold our competitors accountable for what they say, when what they say is wrong. We’ll provide evidence that BlackBerry continues to be a leader in mobile, and we’ll expose “smoke and mirrors” marketing tactics by competitors.

This Portal will be your one-stop reference for all things #BBFactCheck. We’ll also bring you content that you can’t find anywhere else and highlight the news, insights and stats that you can’t miss. From mobility management to messaging, devices to security, we will make sure that you get the real story.

The BlackBerry Fact Check Portal is a two-way platform – so if you see a work of fiction from one of our competitors, we want to hear about it. Tell us about it here and make sure you frequent the Portal for the latest in our fight for the facts.

Bravo Mark, we’re with you all the way!

Now, didn’t we say there was a Gathering Storm coming?


Bigglybobblyboo is a legend almost nowhere at all. He is a founder member of UTB and spends his spare time taking out his anger at the world with a fishfork and a spatula. He is also a Cribbage Master, having won 1 fight online as the other guy refused to turn up out of fear for his life.

    Finally an executive team with some balls that won’t take any crap from anyone. And as EM said, even BlackBerry knows their competitors have been spreading the lies. Time to pay the piper.

    Wow! Maybe UTB can fact check their fact check for them! Maybe they have lots of gum!

  • Blackjack

    I hope they have also woken up to the slander that is CrackBerry.

  • SipoKapumba

    This is a great move from team JC.

  • Will they hold Fox New…I mean, BGR, accountable too?
