Mobile World Congress is getting underway in Barcelona, Spain this week and RIM is there in full force! A new website just went up titled BlackBerry at Mobile World Congress 2011 where it looks like they plan to post all sorts of information from the event as it becomes available. One of the RIM Twitter teams (@BlackBerryScene) has already started sending out pictures of the booths as well, which is always fun to see! Of course, CrackBerry will be bringing you all the news as it breaks, so keep your internet right here. What are you hoping to see from MWC11?

BlackBerry at Mobile World Congress 2011


Hopefully this will be an exciting week in the BlackBerry World! I'm hoping some rumors are made official! Especially ones regarding upcoming devices being released this fall. Right about the time i'm due for an upgrade with my Carrier!

Wait...who is it that voted the Torch as "best smartphone ever"? I don't think intraoffice votes should be used on marketing material...

I was wondering the same thing. Now the Bold Touch will be the best smart phone ever when I finally get my claws on it.

Date and pricing for playbook plus the news that will change the tablet market forever - it will run android apps. A look at road map devices and a very plesant suprise announcement that the bold touch will be available in early Q2.

I believe the release date will be March 16th due to the fact that the offer for every app submitted into App World for the PlayBook ends on March 15th, and the Staples Employee Training document that was leaked earlier was on the 16th.

... that many hopes will be dashed, some will be surprised, and that once again the forums will be alive with "RIM sucks!" "I'm leaving BB" along with "RIM will always be #1" and "I will still loyaly use RIM"

no matter what happens at MWC, expect more of the same in the real world. That is to say, MWC won't stop the world from rotating. My first and only smartphone was an 8130. When I go for another smartphone, of course RIM will be my first stop. However, I am not holding my breath because my carrier likely won't pick up any new Blackberries anytime soon until they are done rolling out HSPA, and it would be silly for me to buy one now when I know the new network will be done in a few months anyway. i am interested in hearing about some solid info about the latest leaked devices, (esp the new curve and curve touch in GSM) but no matter what happens this year at MWC, RIM will still be around. Diehard fans will continue to support them (sometimes blindly). Non-fans will continue to bash them (sometimes blindly), and the world will still spin until NEXT year's MWC
