Spent the week in Barcelona for MWC and you probably have followed the reporting. Massive interest in Xperia X10 and overwhelming positive introduction of X10 mini and X10 mini pro, which I can´t help to reiterate.
Back to X10.
One Sony Ericsson research programme that is about to start relates to user experience. From the very first moment of opening up the box, the first period of getting started and views after a weeks usage. This in order to learn from user behaviour and get valuable feedback as input for future releases.
We will run a conventional research programme by recruiting users through our agencies. In addition, I am very happy to announce that we will for the very first time allow recruitment among yourself as I believe you are such a great representation of knowledge and passion. We will be looking for 2-4 persons that are interested to use the device and are committed to give constructive feedback.
However I am at the same time sorry to say that there are some limitations about this recruitment. It will require a face to face meeting and since I am driving this as an additional pilot, we can only cope with Sweden (Stockholm and south Sweden) and UK, greater London area. I am really sorry for that as there as so many of you that I would like to give this opportunity to as you are great contributors to this forum. Your interest about the device is evident from your activeness on the blog to date, which will of course be considered but at the same time I would like to see who else might be interested.
This is a pilot and going further, we might be able to do this in somewhat greater scale for the upcoming products based on interest etc.
The candidate will be needed to answer questions/send a report on the usage a couple of times over course of months time and be willing to meet face to face for a deep interview, either at our premises or even at their resident.
If, you are interested please post a short introduction of yourself in the comments section below, please include the following:
- Complete name
- Blog or equivalent if applicable
- Short motivation why you would be a suitable candidate in less than twenty words
I would appreciate If I could close the application process by Tuesday next week.
Have a great weekend
