Innovate or die

Speaker: Chris House, Advanced Concepts and Technology Research, BlackBerry
Location: Annenberg 105

In no industry does this saying ring more true than in mobile telecommunications.  In the 30+ years of the mobile phone we have seen companies rise and fall.  Innovation in technology, user experience, industrial design, and the way we market consumer devices have changed the mobile landscape in unimaginable ways.  The BlackBerry innovation engine is alive and well and operates on a modified open innovation model.  The discussion will introduce how BlackBerry innovates along with the inputs that feed the innovation pipeline.  Also covered are some of the strategic focus areas for the company and recent examples of technologies that have been successfully delivered from the pipeline.
