Notice how there are barely any comments here. There isn't even one of those lame "I'm first to post a comment" comments.

RIM please engage developers better. I don't know what it takes. I'm not saying what your doing isn't good. But I would like to see more activity on pages like this.

That would be a sign that somebody is building an app for my Blackberry phone and playbook.
