    bemyfriend A little over 2 years ago I launched BerryReview with the intent of providing useful BlackBerry news to the growing population of BlackBerry users. During that time the site grew from myself to our current team of 12 and numerous contributing authors.

    This article marks a impressive milestone for BerryReview. It is the 5000th article that has been published since June 1st, 2007. With this article I wanted to express my gratitude to all our readers and especially our dedicated team who have contributed in making BerryReview what it is today. Starting from humble beginnings BerryReview now boasts over 750,000+ visitors a month ranging from over 200 different countries. I really hope that the site will continue to grow as BlackBerry spread around the world. If you feel like you have what it takes to join the team or have something to contribute feel free to contact us at this link.

    Giveaway details: As a token of appreciation to you, our valuable readers, and this amazing milestone we decided to offer a giveaway of a $100 Amazon or PayPal gift certificate. The contest is relatively simple and only requires two things:

    1. You just need to leave a comment on this article with a link to what you consider is the best article ever written on BerryReview.
    2. You must also leave a short comment on why you believe your choice should win. Be creative!

    Rules:

    • You may only enter this contest once so if you enter in two comments you will be disqualified.
    • You must include a valid email address along with the tip or else we wont be able to contact you if you win.
    • If you are chosen, you will be notified by email. Winners must respond within three days of the end of the contest. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.
    • If you are selected as the winner we will do our best to get you your prize as long as it is allowed by law. For example, if you live in Nigeria you are probably out of luck.
    • We reserve the right to modify, end, or cancel this promotion at any time at our sole discretion.
    • The winner can choose that the $100 USD prize be delivered through either PayPal OR an Amazon gift certificate. (Keep in mind that PayPal will probably deduct some fees.)
    • Entries can be submitted until Sunday, September 13th, at 11:59PM ET. Good luck!

    Onward and upward to 10,000!

    wow… i am the first one to read the 5000th article.. hells ya

    i think there are just way toooo many awesome articles here at BR, and to be truely honest, it is hard to pick one.

    But just a few days ago i read your article “I have a Blackberry Dream” and I thought it was awesome. Many many excellent points, my biggest pit pioy, THE BB OS,

    I believe RIM needs to seriously start listening to your and many blogs alike,

    http://www.berryreview.com/2009/09/04/i-have-a-blackberry-dream-an-open-letter-to-rim/

    and offcourse great work on the website and good luck in the future

    cheers

    Here is the link: http://www.berryreview.com/2009/07/09/eric-schmidt-caught-using-a-blackberry/

    I think that’s the best article because it made me laugh the moment I read the title.

    I think my choice should win because everyone requires a little bit of rumor and there is nothing better than humor that involves a blackberry; and, needless to say Eric Shmidt! lol. But seriously – I think this has got to be the best article by BR even though all the articles are great and written just so well <img src="smileys/smile.gif" width="" height="" alt=":)" title=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" />‘ class=’http://www.berryreview.co/wp-smiley’ /> </p>

    Here is one article which I feel is very meaningful for people for who take their berries seriously and want to know the intricacies of it… I mean this is the very basis of the existence of the BlackBerry realm.

    http://www.berryreview.com/2009/07/24/faq-understanding-how-blackberry-applications-connect-to-the-internet-development/

    Also… I am sending a note of appreciation to you all for all the efforts you are giving to keep up this site. When I first got into the BlackBerry world, the 1st website which I used to open was http://www.blackberryforums.com BUT NOW the 1st website I open everyday even before BlackBerryForums is “BerryReview.com”.

    I first look into your website before even going to any other website and it has become a habit. Someone has rightly said “Habit if not resisted becomes a necessity” and checking BerryReview has become a necessity for me.

    Please keep up the good work.

    As a long time subscriber to the RSS feed for BerryReview & now following on twitter, there are tons of posts that I find valuable. The post that I would call the best article is an example on what attracts me so much to this site.

    http://www.berryreview.com/2009/07/17/update-new-blackberry-messenger-for-os-4-5-os-5-1-leaked/

    This is the first article posted for the 5.0 BB Messenger upgrade. I hilight this post because it’s a perfect example of what BerryReview does best: bring its readers the newest BB software & news, while also showcasing the spirit of community that keeps me loyal to the site. The article attracted 108 comments, many of which were users updating it with new active download links or troubleshooting for others who have problems. BerryReview is my #1 source for BB info and I wish you the best of luck as you continue down you path to greatness. Here’s to 50.000+ more!

    While it wasn’t an article written by BerryReview per se, it was the first article I saw regarding the Storm…my very first Blackberry:

    http://www.berryreview.com/2008/09/04/the-calm-before-the-storm/

    I was researching new phones and the BerryReview site was one of the top hits on Google for whatever it was that I was querying. I actually landed on a different article, but when I returned to BerryReview’s home page, it was this post about the Storm that got me interested.

    It went downhill from there.

    Now, because of that one article, I’m a Crackberry addict, and have got all my friends and most of my family to use one (specifically the Storm). Thanks, BerryReview <img src="smileys/smile.gif" width="" height="" alt=":)" title=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" />‘ class=’http://www.berryreview.co/wp-smiley’ /> </p>

    My favorite is:

    WTF: Beauty and the Geek Jeans.

    http://www.berryreview.com/2009/08/21/wtf-beauty-and-the-geek-jeans/

    It just reminds readers that those of us “BlackBerry geeks” haven’t quite gone over the edge YET (like the developers of this product obviously have!). <img src="smileys/wink.gif" width="" height="" alt=";-)" title=";-)" class="bbcode_smiley" />‘ class=’http://www.berryreview.co/wp-smiley’ /> </p>

    My thought is:

    BerryReview Hits 5,000 Articles! $100 Giveaway!

    http://www.berryreview.com/2009/09/07/berryreview-hits-5000-articles-100-giveaway/

    It’s kinda fun for readers since i think this article itself is the best so far. However, it’s because i think most of articles on berryreview.com are best and useful to everyone, and because of that, we have this article now. Otherwise, nobody keeps reading berryreview.com, and will you, berryreview.com, keep posting article till the 5000th and more.

    Anyway I read berryreview.com everyday, i am your crazy fan. Berryreview is the best ever.
