Last month we heard that the popular and exquisitely beautiful desktop HTML5 Twitter client Twimbow was coming to the BlackBerry 10 platform when the device launches. Now Twimbow’s CEO Luca Filigheddu (Twimbow, TechGenial, Sitòfono) made it known on his Tumbler blog and on Twitter @Filos that he is joining RIM’s developer relations team. He even shared with TheNextWeb why he has decided that now is the time to join RIM as a Developer Evangelist for the Italian market. Luca let them know that he is “100% comitted to the new role at RIM” and that he considers it a challenge and is optimistic about his success.
Here is what he told TheNextWeb:
“There are a couple of reasons behind this choice, first and foremost the great challenges RIM has been facing in the past months and the incredible effort they are putting to change the skin of the company completely before the launch of their new smartphone based on BlackBerry 10 OS.
For this reason, I am very proud to have been chosen for this important role. RIM is creating an outstanding Developer Relations team around the world, headed by VP Alec Saunders, dedicated to help developers bring their great apps to the new upcoming operating system.
BlackBerry 10 is gonna be an incredible revolution for the smartphone market, a truly open platform, capable of running Android apps natively and also the platform that is easiest in terms of porting any application to. Moreover, it’s the only mobile OS truly multi-tasking, open to possibilities that could have been never imagined before, with outstanding performances.
