Its a seriously awesome time to be a BlackBerry developer. PDM let us know that RIM is once again holding their BlackBerry Developer Day at App Planet during the Mobile World Congress 2012. This time RIM plans on “Introducing developers to BlackBerry 10” which may be significant since it should be the first trade show after RIM releases OS 2.0 for the PlayBook.
