With Virgin Mobile Canada already confirming they will indeed be carrying BlackBerry 10, they're now offering folks a chance to be among the first to go hands on with BlackBerry 10 by becoming a part of the Virgin Mobile tester team. By now, you're probably wondering what that even means. Well, here's the deal if selected:

  • Take the re-invented BlackBerry 10 for a spin and give us four Twitter tips or tricks over 4 weeks.
  • Post them on Twitter with #vmtester to spread your expertise around.
  • To say thanks, the smartphone is yours to keep. Your Twitter awesomeness, however, lives on forever.

Simple, right? You get a BlackBerry 10 device and you tweet out tips and tricks you learn during your time using BlackBerry 10 so that others may learn as well. If you're interested in adding your name to be among those chosen, head on over to the Virgin Mobile Canada site using the link below to get started. Thanks, Richard!

It's part of our 'consumer protection' act. It really means that there's no guarantee they are ACTUALLY going to give all the devices away. It's a lot of bureacratic mumbo-jumbo that means we're excluded from the CHANCE of getting a prize....

le sigh...

Darn i wish this offer was open to BlackBerry 10 fans stateside. But really loving how virgin mobile is showing so much support for BlackBerry 10. Used the Dev Alpha, waiting on the LE Model right now and I can say that we have a winner here and rim is doing it right this time

Although they don't say it, one of the criteria is having many followers. So they'll likely give it to the people who have the most followers and are most active in tweeting.

you guys notice how it says, "tips and tricks over 4 weeks" ?
That means, the testers get the phone on launch (jan 30) and test it over 4 weeks and its released
on the last week of February?

Maybe im wrong tho..

I've never wanted someone to be so wrong as I do right now. That would totally suck.. I've kind of convinced myself that BB10 was going to be available is stores the following Monday. I know that's wishful thinking, but dare to dream! :)

I know exactly what you mean man! I told all my friends and family that its coming on Jan 30 when its not. They gonna be so mad at me. I just really believe its coming.

very perceptive, but hopefully that's incorrect. the post stated that "You get a BlackBerry 10 device and you tweet out tips and tricks you learn during your time using BlackBerry 10 so that others may learn as well." I'm taking that to mean that everyone else that has purchased the device can learn as the tester learns and tweets the shortcuts/tricks, since we all know how fast tweets disappear. although not impossible, it would be quite the task to search for 4 week old tweets just to learn tricks :-)

I'm on wind and if that pentaband doesn't work on wind... I'll have a fantastic playbook companion. I wonder if I don't have to sign any terms or similar, I WON'T SWITCH FROM WIND to be able to test and tweet that thing.

Well this completely blows so much!!!!! It's limited ONLY to virgin Mobile subscribers. That truly sucks wet blunts soaked in male cow poop. Hopefully other carriers jump on-board.

I have exactly 1 follower... you know the type... they scour the 'net for evidence of new accounts, and then become your follower, and their "profile" is something like "Enlarge your Weenus! www.weenusbbig.org"... so if it's based on number of followers, how will anyone but a celebrity be even worth the trouble? I mean, most "civilians" don't have THOUSANDS of followers do they?

This was in the rules for application :( unless I'm reading it completely wrong.

Ignore the above, it seems Virgin is still accepting applications to be testers.
