Is it just me, or, has Verizon stepped up its BlackBerry advertising recently? I have to admit, I am fairly blind to ads so I may have this one completely wrong, however, it seems like I have been noticing Verizon BlackBerry ads all over the place lately.

I may be reading too much into this but I know that If I were a big mobile phone company about to come out with a new BlackBerry I would probably step up my search marketing as well. Is Verizon about to announce a new BlackBerry? The CTIA Wireless Conference is going on right now and any announcement would surely get a ton of coverage.
