    Morning All,

    I publish a number of magazines and we are seriously considering launching a dedicated magazine for Blackberry users worldwide as there are plenty of mags out there that just include bits and pieces on the BB but nothing dedicated, and being a BB user I feel left out.

    What I would like to ask members is this, if there is a dedicated BB magazine would you subscribe to it and also what would you like to see in it.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I would definitely subscribe. Make it monthly, or quarterly starting out and go to monthly as you build your subscriber base. What would I like to see in it?
    • A technical tips column.
    • Rim news.
    • Reviews of new phones and comparisons to earlier models.
    • Reviews of OS releases: what's in it, what's not.
    • BlackBerry specific advertising.

    Sounds like it has the potential to be a great magazine.

    Would it be like an e-zine, or something printed?

    Just had a quick meeting with some of my editors on the phone and we have decided to push ahead with a dedicated BB users mag.

    We will do both printed and online versions of the mag. If you want to see how it would look online here is the link to my digital version of HeliOps.

    http://heliopsmag.realviewtechnologies.com/

    How about members here coming up with some suggestions for a name for the new mag. The submitter of a name we choose gets a freebie lifetime sub to the new mag.

    Cheers.

    It seems I'm the only one so far that wouldn't subscribe, its a great idea however I already subscribe to too many mag, I find that CB feeds my addiction without more paper clutter on my coffee table

    Thanks for the offer but I think I do get all the news of BB's I need right here on CB. Also I don't pay for data so I can surf as much as I want for BB info.

    I would use the online version of the magazine more than the paper one.

    YES! Ever since I got my first BB last summer I've wondered why there wasn't a magazine dedicated to all things BlackBerry.

    Good to see the various feedback from people. In case you are wondering the ONLY forum we would showcase in the magazine would be Crackberry.com as in my opinion the others dont even come close.

    We are also going to start putting a list together of possible writers and contributors for the new magazine so if you would like to be involved send me an email to ned@oceaniamediagroup.com

    This is going to be a great project and one I am looking forward to. Its not going to compete with Crackberry.com, but instead compliment it.

    Thanks again everyone and keep your opinions coming.

    Regards,

    Ned
