Macadamian sees big business potential with BlackBerry 10
GATINEAU, QC, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Macadamian (www.macadamian.com), a user-experience-design and software-development studio, is embracing
BlackBerry 10 and devoting a quarter of its workforce to the new
platform, with 10 apps already developed for it.
“We are fully committed to BlackBerry 10,” said FrÃ©dÃ©ric Boulanger, Co-Founder & CEO of Macadamian. “We have been impressed with the ease and elegance with which we have
been able to design for BlackBerry 10, and with the strong business
potential of this new platform. Even more exciting is how RIM’s
developer-relations team has dedicated itself to building a robust and
global developer ecosystem for BlackBerry 10.”
