The Best of WES 2009 roundup – what’s your favorite?


At WES 2009, I did my best to walk around the showroom floor and vPost the highlights from the show. WES has become an enterprise centric show and WES 2010 will likely be the same. Personally, I’m hoping RIM will start a new conference with a consumer theme, but they’ll likely save the consumer news for CTIA 2010.

I’ve taken the time to repost the Best of WES 2009 on BlackBerry Cool so you can review the entries and vote. We’re voting on the following categories:

1) Best consumer app
2) Best enterprise app
3) Overall favorite application at the show
