    Very VERY well put. Hopefully RIM Listens (not hears) the field and their loyal BB developers and customers. Thx for sharing the TRUTH

    RIM hears as much about developers as from all the marketing surveys they undertook with their clients. I took part in literally dozens of them. The result is evident... RIM, it seems like, wastes money and looks the other way...
    Good post, and very, very appropriate. Thanks Mark.
    ...and good luck with the endeavour.

    I feel bad for developers who actually want to develop for RIM. The majority of complaints from consumers about BlackBerry products have to do with the dearth of apps. However, RIM certainly does not make it easy for willing developers to create and market new apps.

    Do you really think RIM will make drastic changes in their stratagy? I think not RIM is RIM, and as a developer I have to take it in stride. Would I like to see changes, absolutey. Alot of BlackBerry Smartphone users have ventured to the new devices and among the developers they once again have found themselves stuck in the rut of waiting on RIM to release updates so the developers can once again catch up with the consumer.

    As for the part of the article that talks about the crashing of Theme Builder 6, as long as you don't use the service pack that shouldn't be a problem. Our hands are tied unless you are a Java expert as far as what you can and can't do. I have learned to settle for what they gave me. It is frustrating to say the least.

    I am behind the article 100%, but I'm afraid it's falling on deaf ears once again at RIM

    Just a personal take from an old man still making themes for the fun of it

    RIM will hear us one day, hopefully before they close the doors. For me I use a phone mainly for emails so BB rocks but if they don't raise the bar people are going to keep switching
