So thats 5am PST on a day full of class. Then I am guessing 6am CrackBerry podcast. Damn, get that video podcast up quick so we can all watch it later after airing, no edits, just do it.

Is the webcast link working for anyone? I get an error when using the Flash version and with the WMP version it does nothing.

Everything worked well for me this morning, very nice transition from the call straight to live Podcast. Good work CB team!

zensen

so basically in his old position of COO, he wasn't held back at all regarding his position and his position was a major one at that. In this new position of CEO, he talks about how nothing really needs to change drastically except marketing..... okay then, might as well have kept mike and jim in the CO-CEO position then if thats the case....

I disagree with your assessment. He said very clearly that Marketing and Product processes have to improved. Marketing person has to be gotten ASAP and this person will be resposible to take RIM's communication to its enterprise base to a new level and to ramp up the consumer marketing.

I loved how he said RIM is an Integrated Solutions company, that it is more than just a device company which is exactly what it is. It is almost unique among the companies of the world.

He also said he would entertain licensing BB10 to other companies. Processess need to be innovation with prototypes and once a device has been defined, the make the process streamlined to get the device to public in quality and in time. He said they have had the problem of innovating after a device has been defined which has lead to product deadlines being missed.

I think Thorsten is the right man.
