What is TM13? You'll find out soon!
By Kevin Michaluk on 22 May 2013 11:00 am EDT

So here's the deal -- For the past month we've been teasing #TM13 on the blogs and across the social sphere. That all changes early next week when we officially reveal what the TM stands for and tell you all about our upcoming and awesome Mobile Nations event.

Some of you have been pretty astute this past month, piecing together the clues we have dropped along the way. TM13 is an online event, which will be hosted across our Mobile Nations sites, including Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore and Windows Phone Central. The inspiration for the event comes via our Smartphone Round Robins of the past, where the editors of each site took off their platform champion hats to try out the competition and engage in higher level discussion. TM13 builds upon this past success. A lot. Trust me, you're going to want to join us for the ride!

In NYC on June 6th? Save this TM13 party date!

While TM13 is an online event, we're going to celebrate the kick off with an in-real-life party. We'll provide the full details and open up RSVPs next week, but we can tell you now the party will be held the evening of June 6th in New York City. If you can attend, save the date. For real. This is an event you will not want to miss. This will be the first time we've ever held a cross-site Mobile Nations meet-up with all of our site editors in attendance. 

Not in NYC and want to attend anyway? Enter now for your chance to win a free trip to the TM13 party!

We know not everybody can easily swing into NYC for the June 6th celebration, which is why we're going to give one lucky a reader the chance to win an all expenses paid trip for two to NYC to attend the party!

To enter, all you need to do is jump over to and signup for TM13 updates using your email address. If you're already logged into any of our Mobile Nations sites, it's a one step process. Super quick and painless. And if you already signed up for TM13 updates, don't worry - you're already entered for your chance to win. Once TM13 is revealed next week, we'll be announcing the winner of the trip the next day so we can get that trip booked ASAP! It could be you, so hit up the link below and sign up NAO!

if i get it, [ha!!! like that'll happen,,, ;-) ], MY limo will pick YOOZ up,,, or better yet, if they're springin' for airfare, we can take the limo to a helocopter,,, cost abt the same, right???

It would have been nice if the sign up page was made mobile friendly and loaded properly in the z10 browser.

I said TM13 means "Team Mobile 2013" but Kevin said incorrect so anyway I have eliminated one possibility. My next guest would be "T stands for Trade and M stands for Mobile and the number 13 stands for the 13 editors".

What's with Kevin and NYC all the time? He's worse than people who are actually from there and think the world outside their city doesn't exist. It's quite annoying. Many of us cone here for BlackBerry news, not glamor shots of Kevin with an NYC backdrop.

Chicago is better anyways.

How about in a country that actually supports and likes BlackBerry which is a charge that has not been levelled at the US for many years.

Dude... put one and one together. The whole NYC thing is precisely because of TM13. Went to NYC for two months to cover the Z10 launch and help on all the plan/prep around TMC.

As for glamor shots.. well, thanks for the compliment. In reality, the only reason that happens is because we had a photographer out there. Stay tuned to the blogs though - have an awesome idea I'm announcing soon that you're going to L.O.V.E.

Am i even close??

I thought it stood for 'Team Mobile 2013' as well.

Good luck everyone, even though I need it!!

This trip would totally make my year!! Mobile is evolving so much now, and it only becomes more and more exciting!!

Top Mobile Conference 2013 featuring the editors from every segment of Mobile Nations. I can't think of anything else that the T might stand for, but with the hype that Kevin has been trying to generate it seems appropriate.

That would be so epic to win a trip to NYC with the mobile nations crew. I have time of work and everything.

TM13 stands for Tattoo Monday 2013. It is a reality competition show, where the editors of the various Mobile Nations site battle each other in various smartphone related challenges. The twist is they are all assigned a different platform than they normally cover. Whoever finishes last in each episode (broadcasted on Mondays) has to get a tattoo of their losing phones logo. For example, Rene would be assigned an Android phone. When he eventually finishes last in a daily challenge, because well he got stuck with an Android phone, he would have get a tattoo of that Android Central green bug thing.

I don't care what new app or game blackberry introduce to their customers, if they don't fix the little problems, the complaints will slow the growth. Don't they understand that negative comments spreads faster than positive comments. I want the latest and greatest too but, I want the alert notification to work first. It doesn't work on the Z10, (US version). Im talking about the alert notification you are supposed to get while you are on a call and an email or text is coming in. If I'm on a call and my child text me I won't get the text until I get off the call or look down at the blinking LED. A parent should never have to worry about losing contact from their child. We worry about other things. Fix this problem blackberry. I'm not the only person that is experiencing this issue.

Last time I was in New York State (never been to NYC but still) I passed out in a restaurant and almost died from internal bleeding. I'd like to redeem myself heh. I promise my ulcer is healed! Swearsies!

Tm13 is is a Pokemon training technique! They found real pokemon in NY!

TM13 is the antidote for the venereal disease the team caught in Orlando during BB Live. As it happens, the only outlet for administering this antidote is NYC...quite ironic, as NYC is the epicenter for all venereal diseases known to man.

I'm in Australia but feel free to pick me. If you do people will be more likely to enter competitions knowing that anyone across the globe could be picked.
