    Awesome. Looking even more forward to this. I thought they were gonna pull out the big guns at MWC. But they're probably going to show more consumer related things there. And dev related here.

    haha. The article omitted Kevin, but on the BBDev Con website, they had this to say about our fearless leader ;

    Kevin Michaluk is the Founder of CrackBerry.com and Fearless Leader of Mobile Nations, which operates other leading mobile platform dedicated sites including Android Central (Andriod), TiPb (iOS), PreCentral (webOS) and WPCentral (Windows Phone). Since launching CrackBerry.com in 2007, it has grown to become the largest independent BlackBerry-dedicated website. In addition to passionate editorial content, CrackBerry is known for its huge community of members, its popular CrackBerry App and Accessory stores and passionate podcast. It's all lead by CrackBerry Kevin, who is without a doubt BlackBerry Fanboy #1.
    Represent the CB nation oh fearless leader. haha.

    guess who else is also rumoured to present at DevCon Europe...
