OK CrackBerry Nation. This is it. Today is my birthday... I just hit the big THREE TWO... and this year, instead of me getting a birthday present I wanted to give an awesome gift to one of our readers. The present? My slightly used but never abused $2,000 Porsche Design P'9981 Smartphone from BlackBerry. It's exclusive. It's expensive. It's hawt. Heck, it even won an award this past weekend for 2012 Smartphone of the Year

We gave everybody three ways to enter in the Win CrackBerry Kevin's Porsche Design BlackBerry Contest - you could either leave a comment to that blog post, follow @crackberrykevin on twitter, or follow +Kevin Michaluk on Google Plus. The lucky winner was chosen at random from over 5,000 comments, 29,000 twitter followers and over 4,000 people on Google Plus. So that's it... Let's get to it...

And the Winner of CrackBerry Kevin's Porsche Design BlackBerry is....

Houshinto

Huge congrats go to Houshinto. I'll be shooting you an email soon to get your shipping details and will get the P'9981 off to you this week.

BONUS PRIZES: TWO MORE LUCKY WINNERS!

Houshinto's winning entry actually came from his blog post comment (though he's also a twitter follower), but I wanted to make sure we had a winner from each source. I don't have two more P'9981s to giveaway, but as a bonus we picked a twitter follower and Google Plus follower at random who will also each receive a $100 ShopCrackBerry store credit (you'll want to put it to use on BB10 phone accessories!). And the lucky bonus winners are:

Twitter: @MrNerdNet
Google +: Ivana Mitchell

So that's that. BIG congrats to all the winners, and huge thanks to all those who participated. Keep commenting, keep following, and you know more awesome CrackBerry contests are never too far away. And I like this whole notion of giving away things on my bday. It's even more fun than that Adult App Roundup bday post I did back in 2010 :)

So maybe by May 16th 2013 we'll have a Porsche Design (or some other exclusive) BlackBerry 10 phone to give away. I haven't made my birthday wish yet... better close my eyes and do that right now.

emt23

I NEED TO SAY ONE THING! THIS POST IS FROM 11.31 AM AND NOW IS 4.48 PM AND NO SHOW FOR AUSHINTO NO COMMENTS NOTHING. HE PROBABLY DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HE WON. BUT YET ALL OF US THAT WE CONSTANTLY FOLLOW CRACKBERRY.COM DIDN'T GET ANYTHING. I'M ALWAYS ON HERE I READ EVERY POST AND NEVER WON ANYTHING, AUSHINTO PROBABLY SIGNED UP AND COMMENTED AND WON. CRACKBERRY KEEP CONSIDERATION TO THE LOYAL ONES AS WELL, DON'T FORGET WHERE YOU CAME FROM! IF HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A REAL CRACKBERRY FAN COMMENT NUMBER 1 SHOULD HAVE BEEN HIS SPECIALLY WITH A PRIZE OF THIS CALIBER!!!

You should probably take a nap..

Ahhhhhhhh shaaaaaaddddup

You know there is something called a time difference and people in the world may be sleeping when you are awake. They may also have this thing called a job. A "real" Crackberry fan is happy for his fellow BB lovers over a giveaway, also uses both upper and lower case letters to express themself.

a simple search will tell you Houshinto has been a member since 2009. Funny enough it will tell us that YOU have only been a member since 2011. Soooo who owes you what?

"US" do get something. We get a wonderful community of information for all things Blackberry and on amazing platform that we can trust to buy products from.

Robbenezer

If he actually READ the name of the winner he would see that he typed it wrong. Small wonder why he couldn't find anything for the name he typed. Anyway Congrats to the winners!!

emt23

You know what guys, you're right!!! I publicly apologize! I hope the Nation can forgive me for my frustration...Sorry! BB for life

congrats to the winners

Former BB Fanboy who came up the ranks from a Curve to a Bold to a Torch before jumping ship to Android. Waiting longingly for the BB that brings me back. It's an OS thing, not form factor.

Happy Birthday Kevin! And congrats you lucky devils!!!

BTW- how DO you pick a winner in a contest????? I am still waiting! lol

kongee28

congratz to all the winners.. for those who didnt win, dont be sad. If you are staying outside US or Canada, the chance for you to win physical stuff like smartphone or even the cash voucher like $100 is totally ZERO. ;)

ShipyStyle

A very happy birthday to Kevin and WOW! The winner is one extremely lucky person! To win that magical device. That is just amazing. Not only that but Kevin actually used it. How amazing it must be to pop your SIM in there and when people see it just be able to say "Yeah, CrackBerry Kevin actually used this. This was his at one point!"

Congratulations!!!

Sorry guys and gals. I've been busy working and only had the chance to contact Kevin and humbly thank him for the honor. Never expected it, and now that it has....

It's goes without saying that I'm overwhelmed and thankful for all the well wishes.

and emt23...thank you. It's just that little bit more special to me that you feel that way.

Again thank you all, and congrats to the other winners.

Congrats Houshinto! You're totally one lucky winner!

DIPPYNA2

Congrats MrNerdNet!
I am super excited too, I believe this is my 3rd time winning a contest from crackberry :) I already sent Kevin an email, no reply so far yet, hopefully soon. If you could, please PM me when you are receiving your coupon, I will do the same if you want, that way we know if one of us get it, then the other should get it around the same time.

Thanks

Quite possibly the ugliest device on the face of the Earth...Next to my ex-wife. :) Where's the Bold TK Victory when when need it? This phone is like a fat guy running around wearing "Elvis, TCB" gaudy sunglasses.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVIN CRACK CORNBERRY! :)
