    Hi All,

    I'm conducting a bit of market research for an idea toward a new blog I am aiming to launch.

    I have been doing some googling and notice there are little/none independant BlackBerry related blogs, whether they provide information on services, apps or new models. There is also considerably less based in the UK or aimed at the UK market than US/Canada.

    Now, I am not looking to make money from subscriptions or selling a product, I am not looking to monetize this blog at all to start with. This is a project I am looking to expand and adapt on, for something that I see there could be a market for.

    When you search for BlackBerry related issues, where do you go? I personally go straight to Crackberry, I find it is a great resource for Help, Hints and Tips.

    I would not be in competition with CB, far from it. I am looking for something much more niche.

    So, here are my questions which would greatly help my background and planning.
    1) Do you struggle to find free BlackBerry related apps?
    2) Would you feel a need to read, subscribe or feed from a blog specialising in Free BlackBerry Apps?
    3) If there is one thing that you wish there was a niche blog/source of information for relating to the BlackBerry, what would it be?
    4) Other comments.

    Thank you in advance to everyone who participates.

    Kind Regards,
    Amnesia

    1)Never Struggle to find Free BB apps, CB has a great selection, and google finds what I need in 3 links usually

    2) No I wouldn't

    3) Detailed Technical conversation about BES, MVS, BIS, and how BB's transmit data, use data, there is no high level conversation site,

    4) For the most part I've looked at other Blackberry sites, because this site has become more Anti Blackberry than Rich in Blackberry information, But I always end up back here after a week or so, even with all the negativity around here, for the most part the community is great, and the site colours are good no matter what time of the day it is.

    Same thing man - although a UK site might be useful, it wouldn't so much be useful to me.
