RIM has renamed its yearly main event from BlackBerry World to BlackBerry Live, in a spirited announcement on the company's business blog. Unfortunately, its choice of May 14-16th overlaps with Google's I/O event, which dazzled last year with crazy stunts and several major product announcements. (Both RIM and Google changed the dates of their conferences for 2013, but Google went public with its decision early last month.) The company says its 2013 event will be "all about the latest on BlackBerry 10," but there's no word on if RIM has any special product-related news to announce. Registration for the Orlando event "will be open soon" for those who won't be headed to San Francisco.
