TORONTO - Some of Ottawa's key government officials will be among the first to get a sneak peek of the new BlackBerry 10 operating system.
The Canadian Press has learned that Research In Motion (TSX:RIM) has sent invitations to a list of select politicians for an event in the nation's capital on Nov. 7.
Designed to drum up excitement on Parliament Hill, RIM will host a walk-through of the new system at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier and has invited politicians to mingle with executives of the company.
Invitations were sent to MPs, their assistants, members of Industry Canada, and regional caucus members.
RIM is preparing to launch its new operating system and BlackBerry devices early next year, though a specific launch date hasn't been set.
