Welcome to Episode 5 of The Signal, right from the BlackBerry Developer Conference!
Sorry for the lateness all, travel arrangements from the BlackBerry Developer Conference in Santa Clara got a little extended, but we’re ready to go with the latest IntoMobile podcast. Even if you’re not into the BlackBerry scene, it might be worth your while to hear about the upcoming BlackBerry Application Storefront due to land in March. It’ll be paired up with a carrier-powered Application Center, following closely in Google and Apple’s footsteps by providing a bundled, unified interface for browsing BlackBerry software. Besides the daily rundown, we go over the show’s announcements with DevelopIQ‘s James Shannon and ISEC7‘s Matthias Hager and Guido Wilken to see what developers themselves thought of the devcon. Just in case you can’t get enough, be sure to take a read-through of our interview with RIM VP of Global Alliances, Jeff McDowell, on what it was like from an organizer’s standpoint. And of course, if it’s all rubbish to you, we still have the week’s biggest news laid out all fancy-like behind the jump. It looks like some big names are saying “no” to Android…
