now this is an event that people should expect major announcements.

steele_9

yeah probably PB 2.0! Any day now haha

Dave79

I wouldnt hold my breath that PB OS 2.0 will be released before then!

BGR and N4BB says PO OS 2.0 is coming on February 21st...fuck the embargo Crackberry is just useless if give us the news after RIM posts its press releases...

MichealBerry

Really tired of these devcon and world con where all they do is demo all their great software which never comes to fruition. Enough!!

NickF001

I could not agree more.

menaknow

Well too bad...

Devcon isn't for you its for us developers. And the demo's are to show what is possible with what they are introducing.

pinkberry1105

Man I could only dream to go to this event. And I live in Orlando. But the prices are WAY out of my league.

sf49ers

is that our new CB editor Simon Sage in the crowd?

flackery

Simon is easy to pick out when his head pokes out a foot higher than anyone else.

Ruslan Botsyurko

LOL, it's definitely him. I didn't pay much attention to the individual people in the crowd, but once I read your comment it was too easy to spot Simon :)

JasW

Looks like a great place to meet women.

CyberchickK

LOL, I was just thinking; it looks like a great place to meet guys! Too bad I'm not a developer!

btothemalm

Been going for 5 years now, the best show by far!

manofice1

cant wait to register!

aliencds

would love to go as i live in south florida, but being as I am a broke college student I will have to sit this one out :( do they offer student discounts?

ChrisInSD

They need to stop referring to the "BlackBerry solution" -- this was a tagline for the Enterprise days, not RIM's new consumer focus IMHO.

Similarly, the highlights of this meeting includes "discovering ways to utilize infrastructure investments" and "increase productivity." Not a single consumer-oriented item on the list?

Come on RIM, let's get this ship turned in the right direction...

I will be amazed and astounded if any fan night events happen outside North America. RIM needs to spread these events around the world to generate more recognition and show things to developers around the world. The recent event is Europe was so big simply due to RIM hardly ever having an event outside the US.

world traveler and former ceo

+1000 agree .. there should be RIM events in other prime locations also!..

The_Adventist

WOW $1400.00!!!! for the full pass!!

I hope the "free gift upon check in" is a PlayBook (I didn't read the whole info on it to find out).

CC_HangGlyder

I'm deaf since birth, and use my Blackberry heavily in my tech support job. I'd like to know from anyone if they have seen American Sign Language interpreters in BlackBerry events. I seriously would consider going if interpreters would be provided.

MidnightSociety

I went last year and had a great time and met a lot of the RIM execs. I am going again this year as well. I stayed offsite last year at another hotel. Hopefully this year I am at the World Center. Funny thing about last year the day we got the free PlayBooks, I think there was a bomb threat. We were on lock down, lol. The joke was someone from Apple called it in.

BlueNoserBESguy

I think it will be an exciting event for exhibiting the Enterprise Capabilities that will be coming.

As for the announcement everyone is hoping for:

It's too early to announce any phones if BB10 is slated for Sept. As much as I disagree with some of Apple's policies, they certainly do a good job about keeping things under wraps, announcing it, then releasing it shortly thereafter before people start picking the product apart. RIM needs to do more of the same this time.

Plazmic Flame

RIM is currently NOT in a position to play the game like Apple and be all "tight-lipped" about whats coming down the pipeline.

BB 10 and their next device are like the last line of defense to keeping the BB Kingdom from burning to the ground. They need to beat people over the head with it until they bleed at this upcoming event.

ibeengineer

lol maybe they'll announce an email client for playbook.

atlkid891

Yeah I'd love to go to this event but $1400?No way....I'll just follow Crackberry for all the latest come May.

Rootbrian

Wish the price was lower and it was in toronto.
Me is damn poor, can't afford it, way out of my league. I'll keep the eye on crackberry.

Unclebelvis

I'll definitely be there. This will be my 5th conference. It's a great time every year!

manofice1

lol @ people complaining about this price, It's significantly cheaper than last year. This is targeted at certain people not just blackberry fans. This is high because IT Administrators get a lot out of these events. You are in sessions all day learning. I can't wait to go again this year
