Ochocinco is getting that Motorola tablet

Last season Motorola drafted Chad Ochocinco to help promote the launch of the Verizon Devour with Motoblur and it appears they will turn to him once again for their upcoming Honeycomb tablet. It is widely rumored that Verizon will advertise the tablet during the upcoming Super Bowl, so it makes sense that they would turn to one of the NFL’s most popular social media stars to help sell the device.

Ochocinco recently tweeted that he would be getting the Motorola tablet to start off in 2011 and hinted that we could see the return of the Ocho Cinco News Network (OCNN).

Hopefully this device sells better than the flop known as the Devour.

p.s. Hey Chad if you need any more reporters for OCNN, we would love to join you for the Super Bowl in Dallas!

    Who gives a crap what Ocho-Stinko is buying. He’s nothing more than an overrated showboater. The fact that he’s buying this makes me want it less.

      his real name is chad johnson

      • Taylor Wimberly

        It was. He legally changed his name in 2008.

    What the hell was that?!? You would also think he would be sporting a droid X or a droid 2.

    • Taylor Wimberly

      I actually think he is using a Droid Pro these days.

    What a douche.

    Makes sense since he won’t actually be playing in the Superbowl!

    Ok so you don’t like 85, but you don’t have to be a ignorant bitch about it. And for you to say that you won’t buy the tablet cause he is promoting it…good, cause if your gonna be that childish about it, you don’t deserve to own it.

    Taylor, he is actually sporting a Droid X, our friends at Android Central had a story on it.

    I live in Cincinnati, i love football. Played every down of every game my entire high school varsity career. All four years of it. I do not like like Chad. He is a self righteous wind bag. Him and T.O. if they put as much effort into playing the game as they did tweeting and bumping their gums together we might have a good team, heck we would be a dynasty. But nope we have to a profession Social Media expert dressed up like an NFL player.

    As far as the tablet goes i am happy to see them choosing a big name to advertise this product, but i hope it doesn’t turn out the mirror the personality that is promoting it . All mouth and no motion.

    • Taylor Wimberly

      I think your problem is Carson Palmer.

      • http://Website @neidlinger

        no it’s not Carson. at the root of the problem is Mike Brown.

        • http://Website John Barker

          T.O. nor Chad is even remotely close to being [the] problem in Cincinnati. It starts with the staff and trickles down from there. Chad has done wonders for the Bengals and T.O., his resume speaks for itself. Both can talk and do as they please, they have the career that says so.

          Mikey Brown needs to hire more/better scouts and hire a GM. Then, the rest will fall into place.

          P.S. Don’t think the problem lies within the staff first and foremost? What was the teams identity last year? Run first? This year, no FB?

    lol. Haters are out in full force…

    • http://Website @neidlinger

      It’s not “being a hater”. It’s stating the truth. Does “8″ “5″ have have talent… sure. He is good when he wants to be. Does he have a mouth, sure it runs all the time.

  • http://Website Coach Bellicheat

    I bet he drops it and fumbles the tablet!!!!!!

  • http://Website Watermonkey

    Love him or hate him, he has over 1.5 million followers on twitter and he actively promotes moto’s android products to them. Its a good thing for android. And to all the haters, child pleeze….

      Its sad that someone would buy a phone because Ochoblingo said he has it.

      Anyway it seems like he uses these platforms to showcase his earring.

      Make a phone that looks like a huge diamond and you can wear as an man earring, then you found your promo man.
