RIM CEO Thorsten Heins Addresses BlackBerry Jam Americas 2012, Shares More Sneak Peeks of BlackBerry 10


Nothing quite parallels the experience of being part of a keynote crowd as an event kicks off. Today in San Jose, California, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins took the stage to greet the BlackBerry developer community that has gathered here from around the world to participate in something very exciting – having a hand in preparing for the upcoming BlackBerry® 10 platform. The flow of ideas, passion for the platform, and drive to succeed is in full display at a BlackBerry developer conference.

As shared initially in the BlackBerry World 2012 keynote in May, it’s all about the flow. When you interact with a BlackBerry 10 device, this concept is immediately clear in the way that you have the ability to speed through the tasks you need to get done, gaining access to what you need to see, edit, and share in an instant. Check out the video below from today’s keynote for a demonstration of the flow of BlackBerry 10:

For enterprise customers, Thorsten was excited to share the work that’s in progress to consolidate and unify our enterprise mobility management portfolio. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 will provide a unified console for managing BlackBerry, iOS®, and Android™ smartphones and tablets. IT managers will have the best solution for managing their complete mobile infrastructure and for ensuring that corporate data is protected, all from a single solution.

Earlier today we shared details for our enterprise customers on the experience of adding corporate email, calendar, and contacts to a BlackBerry 10 device as well as RIM’s enterprise roadmap.

Exciting partnerships bring incredible mobile services and apps to the BlackBerry 10 platform – both for work and for play. From cloud storage integration with Box to screen sharing with Cisco® WebEx™ and remote desktop access with Splashtop®, the apps will enable rich mobile interactions. And here at BlackBerry Jam Americas, alongside the BlackBerry developer community, we’re watching it happen before our eyes.
