Surprised there has not been more response to this. Tech sites have been scoffing a little at the audacity of overlapping Google I/O. Kevin had provided the caveat that Blackberry World had typically been a business-oriented event but this confirms that the intention is to serve developers.

Why should there be more of a response? Does google have a patent or something more important regarding developer/consumer/business conferences over any other company wanting to host their own? Separate business with only the mobile OS being in direct competition - all the "tech" sites are just once again picking on RIM.

I would have rather them charged more for the conference and made it better. They dropped the price of the conference even more this year than last and last years was pretty bad... 2 years ago was freaking awesome
