    I voted no as well for the various reasons below. CB does exactly what I want it to, various subjects are covered, new information is almost instant, help is readly available, latest tech (themes, apps, etc.) is here. It just doesn't make any sense to me. if I want to know more about the company I can google it.

    My only suggestion, if there was a book, a collection of the how to's in this forum, that would be a purchase I would make.


    I do not think I would have any need to subscribe. I get all the information I could possibly need to know from CB already! Plus I do not have any money to spare for a subscription at the moment.

    No for a few reasons. I don't subscribe unless a digital version is offered as a subscription like Ziff Davis does. Also I think the world of BlackBerry doesn't really have enough going on inside of it to become a monthly magazine.
    I wouldn't cause all the information is on CB fast then they can print and ship it. It is a good idea. I say go ahead and see how good it does it looks like a lot of people will buy it

    Would I subscribe? No. Simple reason is technology changes so quickly that it's much easier for me to get my info off the web. I can get the info and news that I need with a much faster response time than I could ever get from print. Would I enjoy such a magazine, were it to be made available? CERTAINLY!

    I agree with the "No" vote. By the time the magazine hits the stands we will have read that news on CB 1-2 months ago. Mags are great to have on hand for research and looking up old articles from time to time but a print mag will never keep up with a site like this. No reason to take CrackBerry's news and print it 2 months later. Sorry.

    I would definitely subscribe to it, no doubt. Things I would like to see in it would be, websites that catered to the BB user. All of the latest BB models, and their reviews of the product. Lists of all websites like this one here at CB, and other fourms. Hopefully this can materialize, I look forward to hearing more about it.

    can't we just make CB looks more like Macworld.com...? I am a fairly new member but went to the site several times before to get software fr my GF's Pearl. I believe we may consider few things:

    - A cosmetic refresh of the website
    - An translation of the website: achieved by translators paid a good business based on ads and store etc...
    - Some books published occasionally either in PDF or in hard cover (tutorials for ex)
    - We could go even as far as creating a premium online content with screencast, interview, videocast....

    Sure this requires a good business strategy but in my opinion it would not make sense to ignore the potential of CB

    **** we could even create a BB social network and a specific BB application...

    Another YES vote, even though some of the news may be old when it comes out, I would use them as a reference library. Always good to have...and as far as a name....how about Berry United...changing the world one Berry at a time. Just a thought.

    I would depending on the price. It could also feature freebies like online coupons for premium themes or 10% off accessories in the CB store. Reviews, features on news by carrier, device, new products, all that good stuff would make me subscribe.

    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.

    I like "BB User News" or "News for BB Users" or "Everthing BB"

    Blackberry can also be spelled out instead of the BB.

    Can't wait til the first issue comes out!!
