BlackBerry Comes to You


Hey Team BlackBerry! Looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot more of you. I’m very excited to be introducing a new blog series: BlackBerry Comes to You. Over the next 12 months we will be hosting approximately 35 events in 25 different cities around the world designed to meet and engage with you, our customers, partners and fans and are pleased to announce the dates for BlackBerry® World™ Conference 2013 will be May 14-16, 2013 in Orlando, Florida.

As we move closer to the launch of BlackBerry® 10 – our next generation platform that you’ve already shown a ton of enthusiasm for – we want to create new opportunities to connect with you. So, we’re focusing our attention on just that: events that get us directly in front of people like you. These may sound familiar, but we’re adding more events in more cities (hopefully in a city near you) to give you better opportunities to test-drive current BlackBerry products, as well as get a sneak peek of BlackBerry 10 and future innovations.
