It’s been a while since we’ve said it, but the team here at BlackBerry Cool would like to thank everyone for being with us for close to two years now. If you’ve noticed, we’ve slowly been making changes to make BBCool a bigger and better BlackBerry resource for all of you. We started with the addition of the BlackBerry Cool Store back in December, and with the new editorial staffers like Jibi from BlackBerryForums and L.M. Lloyd, as well as our new weekly newsletter (check the sidebar), we’re getting closer to where we’d like to be.
This week for the Weekend Contest we’re putting our lives into your hands and asking for your help.
This week we ask you: How would you improve BlackBerry Cool? What would you like to see? What are you seeing that you don’t want to see? Think long and hard, folks. I’ve alluded to big changes happening to the site before, and we’d like your input before we take our biggest step yet. Three winners (!) this week will walkaway with the great release from Ascendo – DataVault. If you’ve yet to see it, check out our review of DataVault to see what goodness you could be getting your hands on when you tell us how to do our jobs.
Last week we questioned the populous, asking what the iPhone’s effect would be on the BlackBerry and the entire wireless industry. The prize of a $20 iTunes gift certificate goes to JP who didn’t really fall into the hype like the rest of the Internet did.
“My armchair analysis of the â€œiPhone effectâ€ is that for the short to medium term it will result in very little change for the wireless industry. This is based on my guess that for all of the buzz and glory of what by all means looks like a great toy, the masses will not part with the $499 up front and the $115+/mo (data+sms+voice) to use the device.”
Congrats, JP. And to those who always seem puzzled, the weekend contest runs from one Friday until the next, so you have until a new contest pops up to enter. So think about this – you have all week.
