BlackBerry 6 OS was the big news and the sessions gave invaluable insight
WES 2010, the biggest BlackBerry® user event of the year, kicked off on April 27 in Orlando, Florida. I was lucky enough to attend the show, along with thousands of customers, BlackBerry Alliance members, carriers, business leaders, and other IT professionals. We were all eager to talk BlackBerry for three days. The BlackBerry® 6™ OS sneak peak, the sessions, the keynotes, the party—it all made for an exciting show.

The three winners of the 2010 Wireless Leadership Awards can teach your organization important lessons in mobility.

Finally, when you make a mobile app easy to use, mobile workers are more likely to consistently use it.
