Research In Motion, RIM, is perhaps expressing its happiness at having Nigeria as one of its biggest markets in the world.

The maker of BlackBerry smartphones, PlayBook and tablets, is coasting home with some serious patronage as every Dick, Tom and Harry in the country seems to be Blackberry crazy.

That only translates to fat bank balance which gives the company solid ground to give other top smartphone and tablet makers like Apple and Samsung a cause to always look back their shoulders.

However to continue dominating the Nigerian market the device maker knows that it must not only invest heavily in the local sector but also in human capacity, skill and knowledge base of the teeming Nigerian youths.

Apparently armed with that knowledge, RIM has partnered a Nigerian social innovation centre, Co Creation Hub, CcHub, to equip Nigerian developers with skill and creation knowledge that can stand them out in their chosen career.

The partnership begins with the hosting of a BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam developer event on Tuesday, at the CcHub lab facility in Lagos, Nigeria. The BlackBerry 10 Mini Jam will provide Nigerian developers with the opportunity to learn more about the unique capabilities of BlackBerry 10.

The full-day schedule will provide insight into the BlackBerry 10 experience, architecture and tools that can help Nigerian developers be among the first from around the world who are creating apps for the new platform.

The event is being held at the CcHub lab as part of an agreement with RIM to support the BlackBerry developer community in Nigeria. RIM is partnering with the CcHub to bring the BlackBerry Developer Program to Lagos, providing resources for developers, students and teachers that want to learn about mobile app development. ….Introduces 4G BlackBerry playbook tablet RIM has also launched the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet which has a built-in support for cellular networks.

The new device is sleek and ultra-portable even as it delives faster performance over the original BlackBerry PlayBook. It also supports the blazing fast 4G LTE networks. Launching in Canada first, the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook allows customers to work more productively and connect to the Internet, as well as access their email, on-line apps, media and content, from more places than ever. Executive Vice President, Mobile Computing at RIM, David J. Smith, said that the company was excited to bring the device to its teeming customers across the world.

The new device offers a broad range of premium features, including a stunning 7 inch display, front and rear facing HD video cameras, HDMI out and stereo speakers, and it also offers premium performance on high speed cellular networks, helping customers to be more productive than ever and to make the most of their time on the go.

Featuring the latest BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2 software, the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet gives customers access to high speed mobile networks around the world (LTE and HSPA+)1 and offers an exceptional, high-fidelity, fast web experience that supports more HTML5 functionality than any other native tablet browser on the market2.
