    So I'm pretty excited about the huge response the Skype Email Campaign got. (Thanks again zethaaron!) But it also got me thinking. Are were going to have to do this for every major developer who has decided to overlook Blackberry devices? I'm kind of tiered of seeing ads for apps I would love to have but can't because it's not for Blackberry. I do my part and I email to find out if an app is in the works and I get the same generic email back. . ."we are currently considering the possibly of a balckberry app but not at this time. . ." or "we have no plans at this time to make a blackberry app" So. . .any more CEOs or VPs you guys want to spam bomb to help get apps out there for blackberry devices??? I'm down if you guys are!

    I got an idea, how about a mass email campaign/letter send in to the media. So they get OFF Thorsten Nuts.

    We could inform them of the truth, ask them to stop telling the world that BlackBerry today is the same as 2007.

    If the media ever came and asked questions of the #1 BlackBerry comunity in the world and less of bgr. They might get it right once in a wile.

    i think we should be forming an agenda of which apps we need and which we need to pressure and then schedule email days

    Well, I think that if the skype campaign becomes a success, then others will follow.
    I think there's a danger putting devs companies under a hassle ...

    My 2 cents.

    I would like to see:
    Sugarsync for the playbook
    Dragon Naturally speaking or Vlingo
    Roboform password manager
    And we should spam mail RIM so we can sync our calendars contacts ect from our phones to the new calendar and contact apps.

    Spam mailing RIM is a bit extreme. . . Your best bet would be to join the Blackberry Beta zone https://beta.webapps.blackberry.com/ and voice your concerns on the appropriate discussion boards there.
