#CESlive Day 3: CrackBerry Kevin cohosts the show, first guest is BBM. Be sure to watch!

CES Live
By Kevin Michaluk on 9 Jan 2014 12:58 pm EST

The craziness that is CES continues. I'm tight on time as I type this so I'll keep it short and sweet. As soon as this podcast is done, we're recording a Smartwatch Fans podcast, then a CrackBerry podcast (where we'll talk about the lunch I had earlier this week with John Chen; written interview coming tomorrow), and then our #CESlive show kicks off at 11:30am PT.

Today I'm co-hosting #CESlive for the first couple hours. We have a bunch of great guests lined up. And the first guest is Alex Kinsella from the BBM team. He's going to show us some never before seen on a live show stuff, so be sure to tune in and watch at crackberry.com/CESlive.

If you're on the ground in Vegas and are attending CES, be sure to swing by the lower level of the South Hall and look for our #CESlive stage per the picture above. Come and say hi and you can check out my P'9982!! :)



Hey kevin what about bbm for windows phone? can you ask please :) h

Kevin Michaluk

Sure, I'll ask that. We'll have a live chat going too, so be sure to join in and chat!


Yeah sure,OMG you are such a goody and replied,thanks bro :D


Ask him when bbm comes to the playbook????

Ask him when bbm comes to computers. This is fun. Haha.

I second that! BBM for the desktop! If you can ask about that it would be great. I'm hoping beyond hope that it's coming... :)

Posted via CB10


you know, not just BBM.. would be awesome to have a PC bridge. like a window that opens up w/ your phone. so you can get all notification, and be able to reply etc from a PC.

Hey Kevin I hope you are having tons of fun :). How is Vegas so far :)? Have you visited any casino's yet?


Is the voice calling on iPhone's only gonna work over wifi?

Posted from my bangin Q10

Paul Collins4

No it will work over 3G aswell

Only one day left for me to arrive in Vegas. I'll surely stop by to say hola :)

Would have been nice Blacberry that would promote the brand and its devices, or at least the word Crackberry bigger on top is my humble opinion.

Hubiera sido bueno que promocionara la marca Blacberry y sus dispositivos, o por lo menos la palabra Crackberry mas grande en la parte superior, es mi humilde opinion.


The day I leave town is the day BlackBerry is on CES.. that cool wifey...


jojo beaconsfield

Ask him if he thinks any big DOD contracts are coming BB's way, in the near future,after all it was big news ,when they announced their opening of a development center in Washington .Watch his eyes very closely.Say hi to him for me.Thanks,


I missed the Podcast :(

Kevin Michaluk

We'll post that up later today. Don't worry.


BBM location sharing - will there be an option to have always on? Family used Google Latitude in the past, we're an all BlackBerry family and this would be a terrific feature. Thanks Kevin!

Top! Well done kevin :)

C0038297E Quote of the Day (BBM Channel)


Aaargh just missed it (the BBM spot). Somebody tell us what happened

Posted via CB10


YES! what did we miss?


nothing new on the BB segment... :/


Thanks, was expecting some big announcement like BBM for Windows Phone or something like that.

Posted via CB10


Looking forward to hearing what you and John Chen talked about during lunch?

Posted Via My AT&T BlackBerry Z10


Well it was really short and no new news, only thing new he said was it's getting released in the next few weeks and that they will make BBM for Windows phone when there is critical mass.

So the third platform is not "critical mass" enough. Sorry to hear. But I'd rather see BB take third spot.

Sux, because that is how a lot of developers and service providers looking at BlackBerry respond, especially BB10, and say "not worth it".


(but better to spend development resources on more pressing demands, like BBM Video for Android!)

Zzzzwiped from a Zedevice....


So what happened to "He's going to show us some never before seen on a live show stuff,"?
