BlackBerry Jam Austin Attendees Share Some Thoughts About BlackBerry 10

Comment

We’re just wrapping up some video here from the BlackBerry Jam Tour that came through Austin, Texas. I had the chance to chat with some of the attendees at the show and get a feeling for what they like about BlackBerry 10 as well as a little about where they’re coming from. There’s a long road to BlackBerry 10 and RIM is making good of the time by visiting developers and seeding them with devices. Hopefully we’ll see some innovative apps by the time the first smartphones launch. Check out the two videos below.

Developers just recently got an email from RIM saying there has been some significant changes made to the App World categories. Some of the more notable changes include a Music Creation category (perhaps for more apps like Pace Maker), and the Beta category has been dropped.

RIM Hosting BlackBerry Developer Jam Sessions at SXSW #BBJamSXSW

Comments

RIM is hosting a BlackBerry developer jam session for developers where you can meet BlackBerry experts and develop a killer app. BlackBerry devs are there to help you implement NFC in your app or help it go viral. Also, developers can bring their best app ideas and pitch it for a free BlackBerry PlayBook. There doesn’t seem to be any real restrictions, so even if your idea is “port my existing app” you’ll probably walk away with a free tablet. Android devs should definitely head over as the BlackBerry Jam Session is right near the Google Village too.

Take a look below at some of the success stories for not only RIM but its partners and developers supporting the platform.
