    "Hello everyone. I come before you to tell that today is the first day of the rest of your life... Introducing the Blackberry 10 mobile computing platform!"
    A touch presumptuous. The first suggested opening statement by the OP might work better and be less arrogant.

    Thor: "Let us all observe 2 minutes of silence in memory of the dead"
    (points to Apple's and Android's grave)
    Thor: "And now.."
    Arrogance and hubris ultimately brought down the Empire of RIM.

    He should wear a black turtleneck tucked into jeans, with white New Balance sneakers. And then shamelessly chirp Apple by saying stuff like "And one more thing..." before announcing a new feature that is unique to BB10

    All he needs to do is walk out explain how excited he was, state it took long, but without further adieu I present the BlackBerry team who will show you what we've been working on. Thank you *walks off stage*

    Something to this effect, I am no ghostwriter, but the necesseties are covered. He NEEDS to be doing this, he IS the face of RIM and the turnaround. You want to know why CEOs get paid so much? This is why. They are the face of the company in good or bad.

    He needs to go out there with Thor's hammer, and smash a GS3 and an iPhone 5 that would be onstage. Then, have a Z10 and X10 rise from the stage, taking the other devices places, while a lightning effect is going on behind him. Then, have the screen behind him say "BlackBerry 10, Smashing the completion!" and then display the release dates.
    Lol'd at this

    A video of Thor going back in time to when he was a kid.
    He is dressed like George Washington carrying an axe and cuts down an apple tree.
    As the tree crashes to the ground the camera zooms into his face as he is sporting a devilish grin.
    Screen fades to black and then a huge flash of light and AC DC appears on the stage

    "Where were you when BlackBerry 10 launched" The inquisitive will ask in the future...

    Visually, I'd like to see Beyonce and Rihanna pull Thorsten across the stage in a roman chariot.

    I hope he is working with the advertising group. Because if he nails the opening on Jan 30, it will be all over the internet.

    I think something like this:
    "Today is the most exciting day of my life". Thing is, it has to be genuine. And i think given the circumstances, it would be genuine.

    With media everywhere, this is a huge first impression and if he nails it, it is a huge free advertisement.
    Thoughts?
    I believe "Thank You" will be in the 20 first words, maybe 10 ... or even the 2 very first ?
