Last week, Research In Motion (RIM) hosted its BlackBerry World conference in Orlando. CIO.com Senior Editor Al Sacco was on the scene to not only report on the conference but also host a Q&A session with four RIM executives: Peter Devenyi, SVP, Enterprise Software; Rory ONeill, VP, EMEA Marketing; Martyn Mallick, VP, Global Alliances & Business Development; and Peter Valin, Manager, BlackBerry App World Marketing.
Sacco interviewed the four BlackBerry execs on subjects including applications, development and BlackBerry App World; enterprise and business issues; and the future of RIM and BlackBerry. And all of the questions asked came from Sacco’s readers, who submitted the inquiries in the weeks leading up to BlackBerry World. (For more details on the session, read “Help Create a BlackBerry World ’12 Session–and Ask RIM Anything You Want.”)
