BlackBerry World 2012 Keynote – Success, Laser-Focused Vision and BlackBerry 10

Event

Earlier today, I had the pleasure of being in the crowd as Thorsten Heins delighted BlackBerry World attendees on stage during his first keynote as CEO of Research In Motion.

Touting a strong foundation of people who rely on BlackBerry to help them achieve success, Heins and some very special partners outlined a laser-focused vision for RIM’s future– including a sneak peek into BlackBerry 10 software and beyond. There’s a lot to squeeze in, so check out the highlights below.

Why BlackBerry Delivers Unique Value

For more than 77 million people across the globe, BlackBerry helps you succeed. CEO Thorsten Heins has spent a lot of time talking to BlackBerry customers and partners. You’ve told him that we empower you to be more successful. You can respond faster with BlackBerry. You can stay ahead with BlackBerry. You use BlackBerry to take care of your business – personal or professional – on your own terms. “This is the core of BlackBerry,” he said on stage today. BlackBerry gives you back time. And “if you give people time, it’s incredible what they can do with it.”

On top of the exciting glimpse at BlackBerry 10 software, Thorsten took some time to showcase the power of the BlackBerry 10 platform with a mobile connected car:

Thorsten welcomed Clarence So, Senior Vice President, Strategy at Salesforce.com and Chuck Robbins, Cisco’s Senior Vice President of the Americas to join him onstage to discuss success, mobile strategy and security. Later on, others from the RIM leadership team stepped in front of the audience to talk about apps, enterprise-class solutions and where we’re headed.
