RSVP Now for CrackBerry Meetups in Boston, Washington, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago!


The KEYone fun continues as our CrackBerry Meetup Tour turns south to the USA with our Eastern tour, kicking off in Boston on Monday, June 19th and following up with Washington, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago!

Update: Friday, June 16th - If you haven't RSVP'd yet for our US CrackBerry Meetups, get on it! We'll be in Boston on Monday and then fun continues from there!

As we continue to celebrate 10 Years of CrackBerry, we're getting set for our next round up CrackBerry Meetups. We've already hit up ten cities, including Barcelona, New York, Miami, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal and Kitchener/Waterloo.

Next, the CrackBerry KEYone tour heads to the eastern part of the USA, starting with Boston on Monday, June 19th followed by Washington, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago. It'll be Five Cities in Five Days!

Our Boston meetup is going to be extra special. Boston is the home of Michael Fisher AKA MrMobile, and since he's been such a fan of the BlackBerry KEYone we decided to make it a joint CrackBerry/MrMobile meetup, which should be a blast! And since CrackBerry members all love Bla1ze, I'm working hard on getting him to attend this round of meetups as well (fingers crossed!).

I'm really looking forward to this five city tour, knowing that some of the attendees will already have their hands on the KEYone, while many of you will still be eagerly waiting for yours to arrive. Good times guaranteed!
