Mostly fans, users, and prosumers, but there are at least one or two carrier representatives and at least one or two phone store representatives. And definitely several friends of RIM employees, although there may be RIM employee(s) that hasn't identified themselves yet.

I would have to agree with Mark. I know for a fact that there are two (2) Rim employees who actively read this forum and have participated. They have failed to indentify themselves as such but would love to hear feedback from them. Maybe in the format like..."A little birdy told me that.."

Realistically, anyone who admitted to being employed at rim would reduce the quality of information on a forum, as then they would have to be so much more careful about what they said, by staying anonymous they don't have to be as careful since their posts could simply be more inspired guesswork than the average poster. ;)
