We ushered in the launch of BlackBerry 10 in Canada by setting up temporary headquarters in Toronto. For the release of the BlackBerry Z10 in the USA, we're taking the CrackBerry Show on the road to New York City!
SURPRISE!! Things are about to get even CRAZIER around here. BlackBerry 10 is Built to Keep You Moving and in the honor of the Z10's upcoming release in the USA we are going to do just that and move our CrackBerry headquarters to NEW YORK CITY!
While Waterloo, Canada, is the birthplace of BlackBerry, NYC truly is the birthplace of CrackBerry. It was over a decade ago that BlackBerry-addicted Wall Street types first began referring to their beloved phones by the CrackBerry name. Thus, it is only fitting that we go back to where it all began for the second coming of BlackBerry in the USA.
We're still working on some of the final details, but by this time next week we'll be coming at you from the city that never sleeps
We're still working on some of the final details, but by this time next week we'll be coming at you from the city that never sleeps (which will be a good fit for the CrackBerry team - with all the BB10 excitement the past couple of months we gave up on the notion of sleep).
Once we're setup, the plan is to keep pushing hard in NYC right up until the second week of May, at which point we'll fly down to Orlando for BlackBerry Live 2013. After that? We don't know just yet... though I will say something feels oh so right about about HQ permanently being in NYC.
While we're in NYC you can expect CrackBerry's coverage of all things BlackBerry to get taken to a whole new level, yet again. Bla1ze will be in town for the the AT&T roll out. Adam will making the visit from his place in New Jersey several times a week. Alicia is already there too, and we're bringing out David from our Miami-based design team who is going to help us further spice up our content.
Wherever you are in the world, you'll be wanting to be visiting the site often, as in true New York fashion CrackBerry is going to more hustling, more bustling and bigger and better than ever.
For those living in the New York area, get ready to hang with us. We're going to start taking the CrackBerry fun offline
