Lounging at The Jam With BlackBerry Hank

I had a great opportunity to meet some really good people at BlackBerry Jam Americas, San Jose, this past week. Getting the chance to build those relationships and gather contacts at events like these are also important to your professional growth and will do wonders for whatever career path you choose.

I never knew just how important social media platform’s like Twitter and YouTube were until this past week at BlackBerry Jam. From Facebook to Linkedin and everything in between, social media can take you places and put you in contact with the right people.

Check out my interview with the folks from BlackBerryOS.com, Go RIMarkable!


BlackBerry Hank Arrives at BlackBerry Jam Americas!

Well folks, I have finally arrived in San Jose, California for BlackBerry Jam Americas 2012.

I had a nice flight on Southwest Airlines(no bag fee’s), a driver was waiting for me at Baggage claim(with my name sign), and I’m all checked in at the San Jose Marriott and can see the San Jose Convention Center outside my room window.

I am very excited for this event…  Not only will I get to meet some top-level RIM exec’s, I will also get a very, very close look at BlackBerry 10.

I have been invited to several special events through the week, and, will provide the RIMarkable family as much info as I can on BB10 hardware and software.

The hot topic right now for BB10 is apps at launch…  Will they have enough apps to capture the consumers attention?

Trust me folks when I say that Blackerry 10 will not be disappointing to consumers.

We are going to put up video and blog posts daily, so, be sure to check back at RIMarkable.com to see all the goings on at BlackBerry Jam Americas 2012…
