MobileMonday Toronto-The Return of Research in Motion

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) -

Attention Business and Technology Editors

On Monday April 4th, MobileMonday Toronto, Canada's leading mobile industry networking group, will host Research in Motion (RIM). This marks the second time that RIM has taken the stage at MobileMonday Toronto to showcase upcoming initiatives for 2011 and beyond. In February 2009, RIM discussed the launch of BlackBerry World, and this time around, RIM will discuss the launch of important BlackBerry platform products such as the Playbook. Tyler Lessard, Vice President BlackBerry Global Alliances and Developer Relations, will take the stage to talk about the Playbook, ecosystems, and developer programs for business professionals and developers. Teams from RIM Developer Relations and Roger's Catalyst will be on-hand with presentation booths to answer any questions for audience attendees during the networking portion of the event.

"This is the second time that Tyler has joined us to discuss the launch of a significant RIM product or service. An iconic Canadian company, RIM's ever-popular BlackBerry device is a beloved high-tech business communication tool for countless users worldwide including President Obama. Always close to developer and business communities, it's great to see RIM's second-return to the MobileMonday Toronto community," says Alexander S. Bosika and Jim Brown, co-founders of MobileMonday Toronto. "RIM also became a presenting sponsor of the MobileMonday Toronto @ MaRS annual series at the start of this year. Our community represents the intersection of intellectual and financial capital to help mobile innovation in Toronto and surrounding regions. We're ecstatic to have RIM join the growing list of key sponsors which support our efforts to build MobileMonday Toronto into a key platform for mobile professionals to share knowledge, information and business contacts."

The April 4th meeting will take place at the MaRS facility, located at 101 College Street (south east corner of College and University). Doors open at 6pm for pre-event networking. To attend, please visit www.mobilemondaytoronto.com and complete RSVP details. There is no cost to attend this event but you must RSVP early. Over 400 members of the GTA's mobile community are expected to attend on April 4th.
