BlackBerry Elite and BB10 Launching!

Hello #TeamBlackBerry!!!

It's been a while since my last post and thought I'd mention some new stuff that's going on.

I was given the privilege and honour of being asked to join a group of people that RIM is referring to as the BlackBerry Elite.  These people are the hardest of the hard core fan(atics) like me.  While details of what this group will get or be invited to are still secretive, I was asked to head out to Waterloo to get a first hand glimpse of BB10!  Myself and about 20 others were brought to RIM and met with lots of VERY cool and VERY excited people.  We spent the day talking about BB10 and apps and anything else BlackBerry related.  Imagine... a whole day!  One thing we all came away with from this day is that RIM has changed.  There is a new sense of excitement and feeling of pride.  This isn't the RIM of old.  They WANT IT! They BELIEVE IT!  It's a very exciting time for all of #TeamBlackBerry.

Part of our day involved Thorsten Heinz actually coming in and speaking with us!  He spent about 45 minutes with us and we all got to take a picture with him! (He loved my shirt!)

After spending a day at RIM a few of us were asked to offer our thoughts on BlackBerry 10.  Little did we know we would end up in a video posted on the BlackBerry Blog site!

With the launch of BlackBerry 10 just around the corner, I'm super excited to be attending the launch party in Toronto!  Once BlackBerry 10 is released expect some new how-to articles!

2013 is the year of RIM!!! #BB10Believe
