Press Release

November 15, 2012 – Research In Motion (RIM) today launched the BlackBerry® Partners for enterprise portal to support independent software vendors, system integrators, application hosters, professional services organizations  as well as corporate developers looking to enable or deploy BlackBerry® 10 applications and services for enterprise customers. The portal will be free for members* and will provide access to pre-release hardware and software, self-serve technical and commercial resources, and facilitate communications among the members.

“We’ve been listening to our enterprise partners and we’re fully committed to ensuring they have the application development resources they need to develop for BlackBerry 10,” said Derek Peper, vice president, enterprise partnerships for RIM.  “We also want to provide them with a forum where they can share ideas, solutions and information, not only with us but among themselves. They have a tremendous understanding of their customers’ needs and the creative solutions to support them.”

The BlackBerry Partners for enterprise program, which will succeed the existing BlackBerry® Alliance Program for enterprise partners, will include access to the new portal with the latest news and updates, such as  partner technology previews, access to RIM sales resources to support customer opportunities, access to marketing resources to support in country demand generation, enhanced technical support, and access to pre-release devices and software for testing purposes.

“New Toronto Group (NTG), a leading mobile development professional services company, is pleased to be involved in BlackBerry Partners,” said NTG president, Glenn James. “We are very excited about the upcoming release of BlackBerry 10 and the major business opportunity it represents for our company. The BlackBerry Partners program will allow us to communicate our BlackBerry 10 strengths and capabilities to potential customers and other members of the growing BlackBerry enterprise developer ecosystem.”

“Though we are new to the BlackBerry platform, we delivered an SAP HR HTML5 prototype on the BlackBerry  PlayBook in a couple of hours, giving the application a native look and feel with BlackBerry WebWorks,” said Romeo De Leon, vice president, product strategy, Nakisa. “The BlackBerry crew demonstrated passion and commitment to speed our efforts. With limited effort, this app also worked on BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry 10 together with RIM’s presence in the enterprise market represents a significant opportunity for us.”

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
