BlackBerry maker RIM has invited members of the press to an event in New York City next Tuesday at 11am ET. Folks are logically assuming that the company will announce a new touchscreen BlackBerry running BlackBerry OS 6–which would make for some of the year’s biggest smartphone news.
I’ll be in the audience, furiously liveblogging whatever happens as it transpires–and I hope that you’ll be along for the ride. Live Technologizer coverage starts at 11am ET on Tuesday (or–pssst–a few minutes before) at technologizer.com/blackberry. (You can head there now to sign up for a reminder.)
In the meantime, BlackBerry aficionados, feel free to let us know in the comments on this post what you hope next week’s news brings. (I’m hoping for something genuinely exciting–I’d much rather that BlackBerry feels like a vibrant part of smartphones’ future than a distinguished reminder of their past.)
