Program:

"Innovation at Research in Motion (RIM)" 

This month we will continue our discussion on innovation with Evan Miller from Research in Motion (RIM). Research In Motion is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of innovative wireless solutions for the worldwide mobile communications market. Through the development of integrated hardware, software, and services that support multiple wireless network standards, RIM provides platforms and solutions for seamless access to time-sensitive information including email, phone, SMS messaging, Internet, and intranet-based applications. RIM was #8 on the Business Week 2009 List of Innovative Companies. (The 2010 list comes out on April 8th). Evan will give us an overview of RIM, it's history, it's innovative culture and it's Blackberry product line. He'll also share some insights on industry trends that will give us hints on what to expect from the next generation of Blackberry phones. Join us for another lively discussion on innovation.
