This Week in BlackBerry World: Elite Apps on PRIV



We at BlackBerry have been very fortunate when it comes to developers. Not only do they love BlackBerry, but they love our BlackBerry 10 platform. So much in fact that many of them have and still call themselves Elite. BlackBerry Elites are an external group of individuals who work closely with BlackBerry in a variety of segments, including social, support and developer. I am privileged to manage the developer segment and work with these amazing people every day. With the launch of the BlackBerry PRIV, some of these Developer Elites took it upon themselves to port their native air_messages_screenBlackBerry 10 applications to Android and support our latest and greatest device.
