I know this is my personal blog, but sometimes launches are big enough that I feel compelled to announce them here as well.

Twitter is on fire with the news right – I’m watching the stream of comments in realtime. Great pieces on TechCrunch & Mashable already. As usual, the team seems to find it amusing to use my profile in all the screenshots, so I guess that is some measure of fame.
The best part of this launch is that it’s just the beginning of our efforts on the Blackberry platform. I’m very proud of the entire team for pulling together to make this first launch successful. Special kudos to Chad Whitney on his first major launch and blog post – he even got a new profile photo for the occassion. Chad joined my team in December 2009, and has already made a phenomenal impact on our mobile products.
