BlackBerry Live 2013!

BlackBerry's biggest show of the year -- BlackBerry Live -- is coming up fast, and as always the CrackBerry team will be on location to report back all the news. With BlackBerry 10 phones now here and the BlackBerry Jam Americas developer conference happening as part of BlackBerry Live, we're expecting it be an awesome week in Orlando the week of May 13th to 16th.

This year we're taking our CrackBerry Coverage to a whole new level, with the introduction of the CrackBerry Live Show! We will have dedicated space within the conference center, right in the middle of the buzz. In addition to making it our home base while we blog away all week (you'll always know where you can find us), we will also be streaming a three hour live show each day. That's right, you will be able to watch us live! And if you miss the show, we will be cutting the show down into segments and you'll be able to watch them later on youtube.

Tentative CrackBerry Live Show Broadcast Schedule

The following times are subject to change, but here's the plan as of now:

  • Monday, May 13th: 6pm to 8:30pm EDT (during the Opening Reception)
  • Tuesday, May 14th: 2pm to 5pm EDT
  • Wednesday, May 15th: 2pm to 5pm EDT
  • Thursday, May 16th: 9am to 12 noon EDT

Monday evening's live show will be nice and casual as we get things up and running. The Opening Reception will be taking place during the same time slot, so if you're in attendance at the Opening Reception be sure to come by for a visit and say hi. We'll stick to the CrackBerry microphone for that show so visitors can easily come and go.

For Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday's shows we'll be running things with a tighter format. Each day's show will start off with 6 back to back scheduled interviews (approximately 15 minutes per guest). From there, we'll take a short break and the final hour of the day will be a live CrackBerry podcast. It's going to be awesome!
