Announcing the winner of CrackBerry's second car giveaway!

By Kevin Michaluk on 25 Jul 2013 10:32 pm EDT

Back in February I posted that if Instagram wasn't here by April 1st, I'd give somebody a free "car", which I soon clarified would be an awesome radio controlled car. Specifically, I'd make it fitting by picking out one with a 10 in the name. Enter the Team Associated RC10T4.2  radio controlled stadium truck (or SC10 if the winner prefers a short course truck vs. stadium).

Growing up I was huge into RC racing and original RC10T was my vehicle of choice. It's a fitting and awesome prize, and one I wish I was eligible to win! We announced who won that first car in May, and started up a new contest for another chance at winning an RC car.

Well, now it's almost the end of July and we're all still waiting for an "official" Instagram app to come to BlackBerry 10. Of course, the sideloaded version still works, but for so many reasons we want the official app on our devices. However, the time has come to make at least one person's day! Let's announce who won the second Team Associated "10" vehicle!

The Second Winners of a FREE "Car"

Did I mention we have a special twist? Since we forgot again to announce the winner on time (thanks for not reminding me guys!) we're announcing not just one winner, but two! You read correctly, two CrackBerry readers are getting a Team Associated RC vehicle of their very own! The winners are...


Congratulations guys! We'll be in touch soon to get your information for the prize.

As for being way off on our original Instagram will be here by April 1st deadline, it seems adding video to Instagram took precedent over bringing Instagram to BB10 (and Windows Phone for that matter). But now that Video on Instagram is out on iOS and Android, we're keeping the faith that the Instagram dev team has their priorities straight and it'll be coming to BB10 sooner rather than later. No promises on time frame, but we're keeping our fingers tightly crossed. 



You slept my name wrong, it's. SDTRMG** lol

I would love to see all the other big name apps too. Like Vine.. i dont know what it is but people have talking about it!


Vine is dead already. As soon as Instagram got video.


Congrats to the folks that won the new car... Kevin, have you heard anything else regarding instagram and our beloved BB10?

The side loaded version is neat but I imagine people are not choosing BB10s based on our platform not having it.

Captain Obvious here - signing off.

I needed to vent.

There is no reason that these apps can't be on the BlackBerry other than the fact that these companies are just bias toward BlackBerry. That is the only reason and nothing more. Their loss though. Congrats to the winners.

It's not anti-BlackBerry bias. They just hate *you* personally.


I think you meant to say "biased against BlackBerry".

What you wrote didn't make a lot if sense.

Posted via CB10


I understood perfectly and I agree. I've had ZERO problems with the side loaded instagram app. The longest part is getting approval from BlackBerry, not the porting. Really, there's no excuse anymore.

Congrats, guys!



Congrats guys! I think peter9477 needs a new car anyway :-D (check out the Z10 photos thread).

BTW, is this the same Denny-Crane from HoFo?

Congrats to the winners... Kevin, I tweeted you a few weeks back, a blog post that talked about a native Windows phone picture app that allows them to post to Instagram. It's not exactly Instagram, but it's more than we have, so I agree with the blog saying that Windows phone has it before us. Well, compared to nothing we have at all.

They have Instance. Know all about it. Our sibling site WPCentral helped the developer name the app. Maybe he'll do it up for BB10 too!

Serkle K

That, I did not know. Thanks! That would be great!

Congratulation and don't drink when you drive!

the future is easy because it doesn't exist


Congrats winners. Bet peter does some crazy battery tweaks to double the output.

Ok.. I got a kick out of this.. I think you guys will too (if you haven't seen it yet)


+100000 XD

Congrats to the winners! With the native photo editing tools on BB10, it'd be cool to one day have OS integration like Facebook to where Instagram IS part if the camera/photo app.

Posted via CB10 on my white Z10 and loving it!

Eatwelltravellight, Thanks...good one, apropos.

Kevin, great contest. I would like you to improve it somewhat. Thinking once a year and cars get Creackberry / Blackberry paint treatment. Put the logo's on like real race cars, can be CB, BB, QNX, winners carier, etc. Just an idea not trying to be greedy, the fact that you gave any away is enough, just know you like contests. cheers


I think I read somewhere they are currently making it and it should be ready for BlackBerry 10.2. Just gotta wait n see.

Congrats guys, so jealous over here in Nfld. Hey Kevin, how about the July 1 contest, when's that being drawn for?


Give me the native apps plz

Posted via CB10 from Q5


Real car Kevin else you'll be sued. :-/

Posted via CB10


Congrats winners! I'll be over in the corner reminiscing on my youth and sulking.


This is awesome! I'm not the winning sort usually. And good timing, as the guys above said, as my Prius is about to be written off after a rear-ender.

Wow... made my day. :-)

Aaaw snap! Too late! If i'll win this event, I will give it to my girlfriends brother! He likes RC and I'm sure he'll like it big time!
