BlackBerry World 2012, Research in Motion's (RIM) annual event, is kicking off May 1 through May 3 in Orlando, and RIM has pledged to make sure you don't miss a thing. RIM will capture all the action and provide live coverage for those who cannot attend. Those who cannot be in Orlando for the event can keep up to date with the latest news by following RIM's webcast of the keynote.

BlackBerry World is an annual event with thousands of enthusiastic attendees, exciting announcements and general sessions, but the highlight of the event is the keynote address. It all starts May 1, with RIM's new CEO Thorsten Heins' keynote presentation at 9 a.m. EST, and RIM has gathered quite an impressive lineup of speakers. Thorsten's keynote presentation will be webcast live on Tuesday, May 1, 9 a.m. EST.

Stay Up to Date

RIM has many things on the agenda aside from the big event itself. For the most up-to-date BlackBerry and RIM coverage from the show, fans can subscribe to the Inside BlackBerry Blog and the Inside BlackBerry for Business Blog. In addition, those who cannot attend the big event can follow all the action on the BlackBerry Web site, on Facebook, and on Twitter on @BlackBerry4Biz and @BlackBerry (hashtag: #BBWC). "Be sure to say hi if you see us around - and give us a shout out for those of you keeping tabs online!" wrote the team's Donny H.

BlackBerry 10 Jam

In addition to the BlackBerry World 2012, the BlackBerry 10 Jam will take place at the same time. The BlackBerry 10 Jam may be more appealing to developer-inclined fans, and will offer exciting sessions, including jQuery Mobile, Cascades Development, and all you need to know regarding development for BlackBerry 10. Again, those who cannot attend the event can follow the BlackBerry 10 Jam action on the Inside BlackBerry Developer's Blog or on Twitter, at @BlackBerryDev.

New BlackBerry 10 OS

This year's BlackBerry World event will mark the first major appearance by the company's new CEO Thorsten Heins. Moreover, the company will reveal its new BlackBerry 10 operating system, discuss the direction it's heading, and perhaps even announce some strategic partnerships. However, don't expect any new phone launch.
