CrackBerry Kevin's P'9981 Now Belongs to...

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....


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.


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.
