Congrats Ryan! We hope your Christmas just got a little more awesomer (I'll shoot you an email shortly with details on getting your PlayBook). To everybody else, thanks for participating and Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and everything else! Don't worry, I'm sure we'll be doing another contest (or two) for the BlackBerry PlayBook as it gets closer to being released. I'm stoked for it. 2011 is going to be a great year!

Congrats, bro. I hope all the haters and jealous pricks experience some nasty, non-life threatening experience that only makes them want to hate you more while you get to enjoy the Playbook.

Keep up posted on your first experiences in the months to come. Merry Christmas.

don_poky

bahandi

I caught your sacastic humour. I was directing it to others below this post.

ttsoldier

Sainthak

Yeah one post really sucks but it only takes one to win.

Congrats on the playbook.

Snypa

Congrats to tha winner. Lucky BASTARD !!

cwins73

You suck you didn't even work hard enough to deserve it. You probably got your 1st BB this year for your birthday. You can't even remember the 7000 series with the big case and side track wheel. What a shame to let this technology fall into the hands of such an undeserving twit.

shles2

...On so many levels! Did you really need to post this? Sore Losers need not apply! Grow Up!

red72

Seriously!What's wrong with you.

shles2

They probably got snowman poop in the stocking lmao!

blackcaneaddict

Hope the UPS tracker sticker falls off and it gets lost in the mail!

blackcaneaddict

Hope the UPS tracker sticker gets torn off and it gets lost in the mail!

don_poky

HAHAHA I OVE THIS GUY! screw you ryanwilyamz

spaceinvaders

I wasn't aware there were any requirements to enter and win in this competition? And just because he registered recently(?) doesn't mean he hasn't been using BB's for long. My account hasn't been registered that long and I have been using BB's for quite some time. Oh and congrats on the win Ryan! :)

gregerator

Ryan, that's awesome! Congrats and a Merry Christmas!!!

shles2

Merry Christmas to you Ryan! 1 post is all you need along with lady luck! Good for you! =)

red72

Congrats. What a Christmas gift that is. Enjoy.Merry Chrismas to all.

rookie83#CB

to all you crackberries who are whining because you didnt win Jealousy is a disease get well!!! and congrats to Ryan and Happy Holidays

gdewit79

Lucky bugger!! Well, congratulations on the score! I bet your Christmas just got a thousand times better? LOL. Please, do post your thoughts when you finally get the Playbook, please? And do not mind the haters, they are nothing short of jealous!

fatslim

it's not me
anyway
congratulations

central150

I call bullshit. This person registered 4/2009, has 1 post and was able to win the contest? If he posted to win the playbook, then posted his thank you, that would be at least 2 posts. Either this is the most luckiest person and should play the lottery tonight, or this 'ryanwilyamz' member is a phantom name used to win contests so Crackberry doesn't have to pony up money to buy someone a playbook. I could be wrong, but chances are that I'm not.

sabisgeek

Congratz ryan! Hope you enjoy it! +, all the people who cursed @ him are fr!ken sore losers you retards!

Hope you enjoy!

kinghai

You're really lucky. Congrats.

B_Blaire

Ok, first off, you whinning, complaining, jealous people need to stop cursing! We all had about a 1/10,999(one out of ten thousand nine hundred and ninety nine) chance to win! Only 1 of 11,000 people could win! Ryan was that one person to win whether you like it or not! Your cursing and hating ain't gonna change that! Now that we got that out of the way, CONGRATULATIONS RYANWILYAMZ!!! Don't worry about what these jealous people say. Their the ones who's hurting themselves. You'll be enjoying the PlayBook when it comes out while they'll be hurting. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Ryan! Thanks CrackBerry for the chance to win, maybe next time... :) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!!!

Peace out,
- B_Blaire :)

agroni

i totaly agree!!!
all of them are the bigest jelous people i have ever read stuff from.
Maybe they have thousands of posts on the forums, but does that make you eligable to win? maybe they are just a spamer (lately a lot of them these days!)

They stil didn't understand why they didn't win the Playbook...They forgot that santa does not bring gifts to bad people ;) ....and there are a lot of them here...

B_Blaire

Yeah, totally true man!!!

drum

well done that man!!

mokbelg

congrats ryanwilyamz

pierce88

CODrules

sferrari

I say lucky. And I am jealous and am cursing not winning. What I do say is Ryan has to do a real person user review 4 all the losers

Sferrari

pastorz

Congrats on winning an awesome prize! Can't wait to read your review after you receive you "major award" and have had a chance to play with it a bit :)

The Consigliere

Congrats Ryan, enjoy that Playbook when you get it! What a great "late" Christmas present. Merry Christmas (late) to everyone else, even those who feel the need to hate on Ryan because he was the lucky winner.

Stalline

Ryan!! You're so lucky!! :D

grreyes24

Well I guess I will say congrats to Ryan, but I am also going to add to some of the negative comments only because I’m jealous.

I wanted to find his post to see what made it so good and maybe it would help me win something in a later contest. I was very disappointed with the post once I finally found it on the 165th page.

“This would make a great Christmas present… for me!”

Really? That’s it? Wow, I really thought that for the most sought after prize on Crackberry, a better post would have been selected. Well thanks for the chance anyways Crackberry you guys are still cool.

B_Blaire

Whoa, you really looked through all those pages just to look for his post?!?! You must have a lot of time on your hands... Can you give me some...
