Will RIM’s New CEO, Thorsten Heins, Headline DevCon Europe Next Week?

Thorsten Heins RIM

We have heard from multiple sources that RIM’s new CEO is trying to make the keynote for BlackBerry DevCon Europe next week. I have been hearing reports that it is not 100% confirmed that Thorsten Heins will be in Amsterdam for the event. I am really hoping he does even though I won’t be at the event. It will be Heins first chance to present himself as the new CEO until RIM’s next event in May for BlackBerry World.

What do you think? Anything specific you want to hear Heins announce at DevCon next week? The event is sold out so he should have a packed audience if he makes it!

Thanks Ben for reminding me about this!

  1. May be a bit early, but it would be awesome if he could release the full SDK with cascades to the developer community, and while he is in a releasing mood let OS 2.0 out the bag as well.

  2. He will be there and he will be the keynote speaker! :) It’s been confirmed publicly already.

  4. Don’t blame CEO, they want RIM win.

    RIM has strange culture and self distruct political environment.

    In RIM if a new hired person figure out major problem and introduce efficient approach, both manager and his buddy group member will proof their wrong approach works. just like someone point out driving a car is right way, pushing a car is wrong way, then both manager and his buddy group member will hate you, and proof that 3 person can also move the car by pushing it. cheating email will be sent to some vice president, saying like: see, the car moving, pushing a car is a natural part of the process, in order to deny new hired contribution of introducing skill of drive a car, they have to deny merit of driving a car.

    It is very strange company culture and strange company political environment, it promote stealing and cheating skill. RIM’s management may be a typical instance in MBA course.

    This culture deny or steal hardworking team members’ contribution/innovation, generate strange political environment, destroy RIM.

    So don’t blame CEO, some of their VPs and VPs’ expert generate terrible culture and self destruct political environment.
