RIM: BlackBerry 10 will change everything
While RIM CEO Thorsten Heins has been pounding the table for BlackBerry 10, on the invitation RIM might have given away its feelings about the do or die operating system that the future of the company is riding on. "Join us for an exclusive cocktail reception and presentation of BlackBerry 10 and get a sneak peek of the next generation mobile platform that will change everything," (emphasis ours) RIM boasts on the invitation.
Barack Obama was known to favor the device during his first campaign, although his passion for the device has apparently cooled.
Meanwhile, as we've documented, a number of U.S.companies like Yahoo have jumped ship from BlackBerry to the Apple iPhone or Android. The latest is U.S. government adviser Booz Allen Hamilton, which on Friday said it was shuttering its BlackBerry server and allowing its employees to switch to the Apple iPhone or an Android device.
Attendees to the November 7th event will have a chance to win a BlackBerry 10 phone or a 4G LTE enabled BlackBerry PlayBook. Which one would you choose?
