Research In Motion renaming WES developer conference

We have just heard from multiple sources that Research In Motion will be renaming its popular annual developer conference, the Wireless Enterprise Symposium. In addition to a name change, we’re told that the company will be changing the direction of the conference to better reflect RIM’s current focus on its QNX operating system as well as other developer content. RIM will also be broadening the general scope of the event beyond just enterprise, hence the name change. What’s the new name? That hasn’t been communicated to us yet, but drop your suggestions in the comments.

P.S. Maybe will.i.am, Futurist, has some suggestions?
