Mippin Takes Second Place at BlackBerry Achievement Awards
Every year, BlackBerry hosts the BlackBerry Achievement Awards to recognize the latest and greatest contributions to the world of mobile innovation.
Last month Mippin announced that it was a finalist for BlackBerry's prestigious 'Mobile Innovation of the Year' award on the back of an incredibly successful year with the BlackBerry App Generator. The winners were announced at BlackBerry Live in Orlando last week and we're happy to announce that Mippin took second place (although we can’t deny we’d have loved to have won it!) Coincidentally, we came second last year too in the Attendees Choice category, so at least we are consistent!
First of all we need to thank everyone who voted for us! Thank you! We couldn't have gotten this far without you. Also big congratulations to our fellow finalists Waytag and especially to DirecTV Latin America, who came away with first place! The competition was fierce as always and we're honoured just to be included in this list of organizations taking mobile innovation to the next level.
After just one year we have seen over 17,000 BlackBerry App Generator apps in over 40 different languages submitted to BlackBerry World from publishers in 144 countries. With plenty of exciting new things on the roadmap for Mippin & BlackBerry, we'd say we're just getting started with the innovation!
Haven't tried the BlackBerry App Generator yet? Well it's never too late to join the party!
