Yesterday, across the street from Canada’s Government Technology Exhibition and Conference (GTEC), RIM hosted a press information session at the prestigious Chateau Laurier Hotel in downtown Ottawa.  Packed in a small room, Managing Direction Andrew MacLeod introduced a select few from the media to get a hands-on demo of the latest BlackBerry 10 software.

While not exactly a technical interview, Andrew talks about the general features of BlackBerry 10, RIM’s efforts to showcase the platform, and how it sets itself apart from the competition.  Andrew also takes time to describe possible future verticals of BlackBerry 10 and what RIM needs to do to create a successful platform.

You can listen to the question and answer session below.
