This should come as no surprise to anyone. RIM’s current CEO, Thorsten Heins, will be giving the keynote to kick off BlackBerry 10 Jam Americas. The developer conference will be held in San Jose from September 25th to 27th, and it will bring a ton of BlackBerry developers from around the world together.
Hopefully we see some exciting announcement during the keynote, something we have seen in the past from RIM. However the question remains as to whether or not Heins will be showing off a BlackBerry 10 device or not. In the past we have seen the PlayBook shown off, and then not releases for several months, so it would not be unheard of for RIM to show a not 100% complete device. Since RIM has been showing off BlackBerry 10 devices to the “chosen ones” amongst the media, as well as to carrier executive, I should hope that developers at least get a quick look at what we can expect.
We know that current BlackBerry 7 apps will not be c compatible with the new BlackBerry 10 devices, so it would be nice to see something for BB7 devices get released……perhaps Theme Studio 7??? If RIM does not release Theme Studio 7 during BlackBerry 10 Jam Americas I have truly lost my trust in them. They have continually postponed the release of Theme Studio, and with the delay of BlackBerry 10, I think it is about time they got it out the door.
We have a few weeks to wait to see what RIM has up their sleeves for this BB10 Jam, but I know there are a lot of people who are expecting some big things. What do you think we will see come out of this event? Let us know in the comments.
