The Grand Finale of the BlackBerry 10 Event is when Thorsten Heins introduced Alicia Keys as BlackBerry Global Creative Director. Alicia Keys used a dating analogy to described BlackBerry, she left BlackBerry for “something hotter, sexier, with more bling,” she couldn’t accomplish everything with the other phone and had to have BB and the other phone. She said that shes happy to be back with BlackBerry in an “exclusive relationship.” BlackBerry 10 allows her accomplish everything and also allows her to separate her Business and Personal life.
