Normally around this time of year as we head into BlackBerry World, RIM would be preparing to meet with financial analysts to discuss RIM's strategy and performance over the past little while and what may be ahead in the months to come. BlackBerry World has always had a focus for that dating back to even before it was called BlackBerry World. This year though, RIM has gone ahead and decided to change course and delay those meetings until sometime after BlackBerry 10 has launched:
"We decided to make BlackBerry World more focused on customers, developers and partners," RIM spokeswoman Tenille Kennedy said on Tuesday. "We will hold a separate session targeted at the interests of the investment community later this year, once BlackBerry 10 is launched."
No date for the meetings has been announced; much like how no date for the actual launch of BlackBerry 10 has been announced either. The focus on consumers and developers is certainly appreciated however; how the financial analysts will take the news remains to be seen. Though, we're sure we'll be hearing from them as well shortly.
