We're doing a research project on the mobile ecosystem in the Mobility Research Center at Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley. Our main goal in our current study is to understand the decision-making process followed by mobile applications developers/start-ups. We are particularly interested in how they decide upon platform(s), device (s), carrier(s), and market, as well as the relative importance of technology and business factors.
Our research process includes a formal survey, a series of interviews, and a public wiki.
In the fast moving mobile world BlackBerry has a primary role and your experience should be taken into account in our research, so we would like you to complete our SURVEY at
We think that it will take about 10-15 minutes to complete the survey and will close be Jan. the 10th.You can WIN A PRIZE and RECEIVE A FREE SUMMARY REPORT of our activity. We will make the results public on our wiki, as well as through public presentations.
It would be great if you could pass along this message and this link to colleagues and mobile professionals or post it in your blog, twitter....
We want to follow up with some people in more detail. If you would have about 30 minutes for an informal interview, please let us know.
We've just started a wiki on this topic and encourage you to visit, contribute, and let others know about it.
