Can’t make it to Santa Clara? No worries. Just bookmark this blog. I’ll be one of the first folks in line to demo the touch screen BlackBerry—you can count on it—and I’ll blog my initial impressions and more right here, on the Mobile WorkHorse page.
If you’re a BlackBerry developer, and the potential for a hands-on with the new Storm isn’t motivation enough to ship out to Santa Clara, the BlackBerry Cool 15 ought to be. The BlackBerry Cool 15 is an event being organized by BlackBerryCool.com and the BlackBerry Partners Fund, in which 15 developers will have the opportunity to tout their best applications and win prizes—in addition to exposure…and the opportunity to hang out with Doug from BlackBerryCool.com, Kevin from CrackBerry.com and myself. We’ll all be judging the event along with Rick Segal from the BlackBerry Partners Fund and (possibly) Pinstack.com‘s Hayden James. (Read my post from earlier this week for more details on the BlackBerry Cool 15.)
