#CESlive is BACK!
RIM fired off a press release today to remind everyone that the biggest BlackBerry show of the year is just a couple weeks away, set to kick off on May 5th. You can read the press below after the break and jump over to attendwes.com to learn more about the event and register.
I don't think we'll see any big device unveilings this year at WES as we did last year with the Bold and the year prior with the Curve (I'll be pleasantly shocked if we do!), but don't think that means there won't be a lot of exciting stuff happening. With the world of BlackBerry in one location for three days, we're bound to see some announcements in addition to the anticipated rollout of BES 5.0. The Crack Team is getting geared up for the event (http://crackberry.com/wes2009 microsite under construction and coming soon)... there will be lots of WES 2009 action coming in the days and weeks ahead!
