Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion has officially announced plans to hold its BlackBerry World conference in May this year, between 14 and 16 of the month, while also unveiling that the event had seen a name change, now being called BlackBerry Live.This year’s conference will be the first of the kind to be held following the launch of RIM’s new mobile operating system, BlackBerry 10, and that of devices running under it.
“This year’s BlackBerry Live conference is going to be a very exciting event for us here at RIM, our attendees, partners, carriers, and customers,” the company notes in a blog post.
“We’re already well underway with the planning, and the timing couldn’t be better on the heels of our launch of BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.”
The conference will be called BlackBerry Live following the recently announced re-branding of the BlackBerry App World, which will be known moving forth as BlackBerry World, and which will provide users with more than just applications and games.
As expected, the BlackBerry Live conference will focus on the upcoming BlackBerry 10 operating system, and should provide developers and other attendees with deep insights into the technology, as well as with ideas for mobile strategies and more.
According to RIM, the BlackBerry Live conference will include:
- Road-test the game changing BlackBerry 10 platform to see why everyone is so excited
- Get your toughest technical and business questions answered
- Meet the BlackBerry leaders behind BlackBerry 10
- Accelerate your mobile decision-making with expert advice and services
- Form business relationships to rely on down the road
- Hear what’s next for BlackBerry
- Participate in the mobile ecosystem and help shape the future of BlackBerry
The handset vendor is set to kick off the registrations for the conference in the near future, and will provide all the necessary details on the matter in due time. Stay tuned for more on this.
