BlackBerry Developer’s Blog End of Year Wrap-Up


I wanted to share some end of year updates and highlight a few of the accomplishments within the BlackBerry® development community as 2009 comes to a close:

To say it has been a great year would be an understatement. I’ve met thousands of great people who are passionate about mobile applications and the opportunities in the market. We have been working really hard to make it easier to be a BlackBerry developer from services to simulators and everything in between.

I am incredibly excited about 2010 and am looking forward to sharing that success with each of you. We will be taking a little time off on the blog until the New Year (back in action January 6th!) to celebrate the end of the year and prepare for a stellar 2010. If you have a chance over the holidays, please post a comment with suggestions or feedback, as we love receiving input from the community.
