Chocolate Blog

Paul highlights the blog behind the phone. This is a terrific example of a PR blog. Like Paul, the transparency here is great. It describes the program and highlights their intent. Love the links etc. Great work by H&K.

The blog is definitely a “blogvertisement” or PR blog (“Prlog“) that uses blog features to promote the phone. What is missing here is community activation (as far as I can tell) – that is, activating the community of early “chocolate phone” adopters by providing them with a platform on which to engage and participate. It also doesn’t link to citizen recommendations on the product.

That said, it’s a great example of what it is and not ashamed to be that. It does highlight – in case anyone was confused – that their is a difference between commercial and marketing blogs and citizen blogs.
