And, really, that's about all we have to say about that. We'll be South of Market in San Francisco May 15-17 for the Google I/O developer conference. Perhaps you remember last year's event, which included skydiving (twice), the introduction of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Google's Project Glass.
RIM will be at the Orlando Howard Johnson's (or somewhere nearby, we suppose) in Orlando May 14-16. And you might see an encore of the following presentation (after the break).
*Update from CrackBerry Kevin (w/ Phil's permission): Hey folks, just a little clarification here that the scheduling of this event really doesn't conflict with Google I/O from a developer perspective. BlackBerry Live, formerly BlackBerry World, formerly Wireless Enterprise Symposium, it not a developer event. Historically it's for enterprise customers, BES admins, carriers, and people in the business of BlackBerry. This past year RIM held a BlackBerry Developer conference in parallel with BlackBerry World, so they could get the Dev Alpha developer hardware into the hands of devs to build apps in preparation of the upcoming BB10 launch. BlackBerry's annual developer conference happens in the fall. *
*Update 2 from Phil: Whatever.
