The biggest BlackBerry conference of the year brought together thousands of developers, IT professionals and business decisionmakers. And after three days of nonstop BlackBerry-related activities at WES 2009, we left amazed at what’s to come this year. Attendees took part in breakout sessions, got hands-on time in the Lab, and networked with colleagues. In addition, people got first looks at a number of solutions that just might change the way you use your BlackBerry smartphone.
Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO, Research In Motion (RIM), had the honor of announcing the winners of this year’s Wireless Leadership Awards at WES 2009. Particularly striking this year was the diversity of solutions being employed by the nominees, which represented public and private companies across a number of verticals, as well as a mix of government and educational entities. Each organization worked with BlackBerry® partners to craft a solution that would fit their particular needs and recognized significant ROI benefits after implementation.
Now there’s a solution for every size business
RIM recently revamped its technical support system, providing brand new opportunities for businesses of all sizes to pick exactly the level of service that they need. With new options for customization and new service solutions for small and medium businesses, every company can customize a solution that’s right for their situation.

Your BlackBerry® smartphone lets you stay connected—and the apps we’re featuring in this issue of the BlackBerry Connection® newsletter make it even easier. Highlights this month include a major Facebook® update, an app that simplifies media sharing, and an app that lets you keep track of how your elected officials are voting.
