Notes from a BlackBerry Meetup

I went to the first-ever meeting of the New England BlackBerry Developer's group tonight in Cambridge. An official RIM-sponsored group, this Meetup had as speaker Mike Kirkup, Director of Developer Relations at RIM. He covered a number of developer's topics, and his slides will probably be posted on the Meetup page. I won't try to summarize the presentation ("what makes a 'super app' etc"), since the slides should be available elsewhere, but would like to note a few things that I found interesting from the meeting. Since we had an official RIM rep to answer questions, I thought it was a good session.
