The company is looking to make a big comeback in the smartphone industry, and it is obvious that “getting personal” is part of its bigger strategy (here is another part of its strategy).
On the company’s official business blog, you will find an interesting piece that was recently published: Recapping the 2013 BlackBerry Achievement Awards
While the title pretty much says it all, you may not know the first thing about the Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BlackBerry Achievement Awards.
For more on this, here is a brief excerpt from the story:
“This year’s BlackBerry Achievement Awards recognized the cutting-edge contributions of exceptional businesses, entrepreneurs, and developers from all around the world.
