    The announcer is standing in the middle of the audience. It's a little strange.
  • Brian Bennett 1/30/2013 3:07:29 PM
    It's a worldwide telecast man, I can dig it I guess.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:07:29 PM
    Okay, cue the promo video hyping up BlackBerry 10.

    RIM pushes the global appeal of BlackBerry, getting people from all over the world to talk about BB10.
  • Brian Bennett 1/30/2013 3:08:50 PM
    The world loves BlackBerry! Right?!!! Not so sure about the US or China.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:08:51 PM
    The international story is a big one for RIM. Most of its growth over the past two years has been driven by emerging markets.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:09:09 PM
    But with BB10, RIM is going to go back to attacking the more developed markets, including its home market of North America.

    Okay, we are sitting in a bad seat. The light is shining down directly on us. Ugh....
  • Brian Bennett 1/30/2013 3:10:07 PM
    A blinding blue light has just hit us in the face. Ouch!
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:10:30 PM

    Saunders: We've seen developers we've never seen before, including younger people.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:11:11 PM
    In India, someone wrote a book about programming for BB10.

  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:11:40 PM
    Saunders: Two portathons nabbed 15,000 and 19,000 apps each. Wow.
  • Brian Bennett 1/30/2013 3:11:51 PM
    Hmmm, a huge ground swell of support for BB10? Ah, not so sure about that.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:12:04 PM
    Saunders: Thank you. We have put together the largest catalog of apps for a first-generation mobile platform.

    The guy in the video has a "honk for BlackBerry 10" campaign in his hometown.
  • Brian Bennett 1/30/2013 3:13:13 PM
    This suave MC is really an Android running BB10 QNX multitasking software...that's the big reveal.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:13:39 PM
    A musician is now up in the video talking about his use of BB10, and the ability to do multiple things at once.
  • Roger Cheng 1/30/2013 3:13:53 PM
    The multitasking advantage will be a big focal point for RIM and BB10.
