I’m not sure if you were able to catch it last month, but a couple of weeks ago, RIM put on a pretty big show with their Blackberry JAM 10 Conference in San Jose, California. There was a whole lot of interesting information coming out of that conference. I myself have only been able to process small bits and pieces so far.
If you’ve been following what’s been happening in this space online, you’ll more than likely know that things have been pretty rocky for RIM lately, but … they have a plan … it’s called BB10.
With blackberry 10 OS and the capabilities and services that it provides, RIM will attempt to silence it’s critics and pave a path to a recovery of their device in the global smartphone marketplace. Most or all of the videos from this conference are available online here: http://www.blackberryjamconference.com/americas/content/webcast and here: http://blogs.blackberry.com/2012/09/blackberry-jam-americas-keynote-video/
For those of us with a smartphone, we all know that the hardware, while extremely significant, only makes up a part of the buying decision … in today’s world, it’s all about the apps.
DEVELOPERS! DEVELOPERS! DEVELOPERS!
This was back in 2006 when sweaty Steve Ballmer took the stage making what was either a battle cry or a desperate call for developer! They needed developers to build applications that targeted the company’s platforms. Not much has changed since then … today there is an even greater need for developer support on platforms, especially those platforms that can be considered to be the underdogs in the mobile arena.
RIM made their own call for DEVELOPERS! check out the video below. I have to admit … I’m impressed and moved 😛
If you take time to look at some of the videos on the BB10 Blog (posted the link earlier, but here it is again http://blogs.blackberry.com/2012/09/blackberry-jam-americas-keynote-video/) you would understand that RIM has a very strong and exciting evolution coming to its platforms.
Developers! While I don’t’ yet have the specific details of the session, RIM will be delivering three (3) solid hours of coding on the Developer Track at MobiWorld on October 25th, 2012 at the Hilton Trinidad.
Devs, you can’t afford to miss out on this. Be sure to visit our website @ http://mobiworldcaribbean.com and stay tuned for a lot more posts today!
