I work for a Cambridge, MA-based software company that builds voice-enabled applications for BlackBerries. We're looking for social BlackBerry users to participate in usability testing at various times from the end of January through the end of March. We're particularly looking for folks who have the BB Pearl, Curve or 8800 and use them for personal stuff (not just business).
This is an opportunity to try out a cutting-edge BlackBerry application, get paid for your time and influence the design of software that is not yet publicly available.
All usability participants are paid (users who come in for a 1-hour test on-site earn $50). All participants also get a free (for the life of your BB) copy of the software when it's ready for release.
In January and early February, we will conduct testing locally; participants need to be able to get to our Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA offices. In February and March, we will conduct testing nationwide. You can participate from wherever you are, as long as you're in the US.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the short questionnaire located at this URL: Usability Participant Questionnaire
The survey should take only 5-10 minutes to complete and will help us match you to the right study.
Any information you provide will be kept confidential. Also, please feel free to forward this message to any other social BlackBerry users you know. Thanks in advance!
