The Global BlackBerry 10 Launch: Highlights and a Look Back

Event

Global BlackBerry 10 launch

It has been just over a week since we launched BlackBerry 10 on January 30th. The company has a new name, introduced two new products in the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10, and engaged eager fans all across the globe with six events being simultaneously held in New York City, Johannesburg, Toronto, Paris, London and Dubai. This was no easy feat, but it went off without a hitch.

For those of you who weren’t able to make it out to one of the events or watch the live feed of the BlackBerry 10 launch, we’ve gathered some of the best footage from each event to share with you. Have a look at the video below to see all the action.

Looking back on the global launch event, my favorite moment was getting the chance to meet and talk with all the people who were getting to see BlackBerry 10 for the first time. They were excited to get their hands on the BlackBerry Z10, and were impressed by many of the new features on the BlackBerry 10 platform. Their enthusiasm made all the hard work building up to launch worth it.

Our new name, BlackBerry, comes with a new vision, a new attitude and new energy. We’re putting it all to good use as we introduce the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 to new markets and hold events to meet with developers, business partners and customers all around the world. We’re not stopping now; January 30th was just the beginning.

Team BlackBerry, we’ve shared some of our favorite moments from the BlackBerry 10 launch – I’d love to see you do the same. Let us know what your favorite moments were and what you’re looking forward to with BlackBerry 10.
