Question No Booth At CES 2013

Please Login to Remove!

I go to CES every year and of course I wanted to stop by RIM's booth to get a preview of BB10. After searching the list of exhibitors, it appears that there is no booth for RIM this year. I searched for RIM, Research In Motion, and Blackberry. Nothing! Guess they are going to pull an Apple move and announce the devices on their own time without a booth. Also surprising is that Nokia pulled out on a booth just last month (wanted to check out the Lumia's) and now Microsoft has no booth for the first time as well. So much for going to trade shows anymore. This maybe my last trip!

I guess RIM is waiting for Jan. 30, BB10 launch day, instead of time and spending resources for CES. Makes sense to me.
Edit - I see QNX will be there - would be very interesting I think.

I was thinking the same thing. Why have the booth if they're not going to announce it until Jan. 30th. I think they should have announced it at the show personally but who knows....

As for QNX, they used to have their booth right next to Blackberry in the past but this year they are in the automotive section since they have developed an OS for car stereos I believe. They're not there to push the BB10 OS.

They have a booth. It's private. They also have a team representing QNX. A a bunch of people wandering around showing demos.
