BlackBerry in the Philippines offering up a sweet competition

By James Richardson on 4 Jul 2013 04:31 am EDT

If you are a BlackBerry user (or want to be) in the Philippines then BlackBerry are needling you to be creative. Via their Facebook page they have come up with the Dream App Factory - a simple place where Facebook users can submit their ideas for an application they would like to see in BlackBerry World. Not only will the winners app be created by BlackBerry but they will also receive a Z10 as a prize!

Once you have submitted your dream app idea you can get your friends to vote for you and if you are in the top three you will be in with the chance of picking up the BlackBerry Z10. Submissions are open until July 14th and after that the voting will begin - ending on July 21st.

As usual with these competitions there are some strict terms and conditions which can be found on the Facebook page but most importantly - this one is only open to residents of the Philippines.

Good luck folk.

*Update - It now looks like Hong Kong and Indonesia are also taking part. I'd suggest trying the link below and seeing if you have the option to enter*

What BlackBerry cloud services?! What protect its already there.

They are obviously looking to find apps that are possibly Philippines specific. I'm sure they will get all sorts of responses, but wouldn't be surprised to see the top three being of the above nature.

I want to buy premium content on BlackBerry App World without the need for a credit card or direct cash payments. But sadly I can't buy applications using Globe Telecom Integrated Carrier Billing using my Z10! I want to buy 20-30 or more applications! Is Globe Telecom Integrated Carrier Billing working on BB10 OS?


Well you can apply for Globe GCASH-AMEX. That's what I use on purchasing app since I don't have a credit card. I don't know if it will be on top of your monthly bill since I'm not in post paid.

Salamat kapatid na magsasaka!. GCASH-AMEX nagamit mo na sa Blackberry App World? nakabili kana ng apps sa Blackberry App World?, Heto nagbabasa ako ngayon about sa gcash-amex.


You can use PayPal if you don't have a credit card. Yun ginagamit ko.

Well, if you win, you could always pass it on to someone else and give them a chance to enjoy the awesomeness of BlackBerry 10 :)

This is a splendid idea. Hopefully it comes to other continents as BlackBerry is truly a global company.


Hahaha oh you kill me

Mr armchair CEO, BlackBerry can't do everything everywhere. They just might have some very good reasons for the countries they picked.

I wasn't criticizing their regional strategy with this promotion.


Ang galing naman ng BlackBerry Pinas! Whoever wins the competition with his/her dream app, I'll be among the firsts to download it. All the best mga kabayan! l


Amazing way to get BlackBerry fans and potential ones involved! They need to roll out this marketing campaign here in Canada!


Want tamils to reconquer you guys so they can build some Punjabi apps.

This guy brought up a good idea. An app that sends a drone to hunt tigers.

This is cool and a great idea...should have this rolled out Worldwide...get the competition running...


i'd like a blacklist/whitelist app for contacts. that way, i can have confidential communication from selected contacts which wont show up in the hub.

You never have any contests for EA (East Africa) where there are major BB fans (9900-9980 series great email). But I have to admit, I have yet to see anyone with a Z10 or Q10. I think they were priced too high so people went with the Note 2.


Dapat may app o UI sa prints directly sa Printer. Maraming BlackBerry users ba sa Pilipinas?
