Interview: Gary Klassen, Creator of BBM, Talks BlackBerry 10

During BlackBerry Jam Europe we had the opportunity to chat with Gary Klassen, the famed creator of BlackBerry Messenger, and discuss the newly released BlackBerry 10.

We picked Gary’s brain on what the future might hold for BBM and even BlackBerry 10. Gary isn’t directly working on the BBM team, but he’s still the Principal Architect at BlackBerry.

In other words, Gary is still a very important person for the success of BlackBerry. It’s exciting to see Garys enthusiasm for the future. Check out the interview below, you won’t want to miss it.
