    ING DIRECT offers today's financially conscious customers a unique mobile banking experience on their BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

Other features such as "Small Sacrifices" encourage positive decisions about saving and financial information by sharing info through Facebook, Twitter, BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) and YouTube.

The app is helping DIRECTV improve customer satisfaction, reduce paperwork and technical calls, as well as decrease return visits to customer homes.

    Making the World a Better Place Award

    Winner: e-Cycle LLC
    e-Cycle LLC has a simple, but meaningful mandate: offer enterprises a way to retire millions of mobile devices responsibly, by protecting data security, preserving the environment, and generating buyback revenue. As a recipient of e-Stewards® certification, e-Cycle is on the frontline of ensuring that harmful, toxic chemicals from mobile devices are not sent to landfills but are instead recycled safely. Their buyback program reimburses costs for devices that can have more value in the market, which offsets the costs of a company upgrading to new devices.

    Sussex Police

    Entrepreneur of the Year Award

    Winner: Nobex Technologies Inc
    Many BlackBerry enthusiasts are familiar with Nobex Technologies' innovative mobile app that allows people to listen radio stations on the go and share the experience and chat with friends through BBM. Nobex Radio for BlackBerry 10 continues its inventiveness with a newly designed app. It adds podcast functionality that allows people to search and subscribe to thousands of podcasts, with notifications sent to the BlackBerry Hub when new episodes are available.
