In response to a question concerning the availability of Blackberry's online application store -App World- in Malaysia, Wade answered that RIM was not ready to share information regarding its app store just yet.

According to RIM, the company sold its 75th million BlackBerry in 2009, and celebrated both the company's 25th year anniversary, as well as the 10 years of the BlackBerry's presence in the global market.
