I have been part of RIM’s BlackBerry Market Research Panel for quite awhile and its a pretty rewarding experience. You get some insight into what RIM is interested in terms of future products and features. A good portion of the questions in the past have been focused on the enterprise but there are some consumer questions starting to dominate recent surveys.
My buddy Douglas, who is now working at RIM, let me know that they are now hosting an open call for BlackBerry smartphone users, IT administrators, decision makers, and RIM partners to join their online panel. You submit some information about you and then RIM decides if you are accepted or not. If you are then RIM will send you a monthly email with a quick 5-10 minute survey.
