Leave a comment for your chance to win a BlackBerry PlayBook!

* December 24th Update: This is it folks, we're into the final hours of our Win an IOU for a BlackBerry PlayBook this Christmas contest. If you haven't left a comment yet for your chance to win, do it now! Good luck to everyone, and MERRY CHRISTMAS! *

We usually get pretty festive here around CrackBerry during the holiday season (I guess when the site's founder lives in Winterpeg that's bound to happen) which means every year we try and come up with an awesome contest to run in December. As deputized CrackBerry Santa I was chatting it over with my Little Helper (pictured above) the other night as to what would be the ultimate gift for a BlackBerry user and abuser to receive under the tree this year. We both decided it would be a BlackBerry PlayBook, but alas, it won't be on sale until 2011. So this year CB Santa is doing the next best thing and giving away an IOU for a BlackBerry PlayBook!

Enter to WIN an IOU for a BlackBerry PlayBook: You have until Midnight PST on Christmas Eve to leave a comment to this blog post to be entered for your chance to win an IOU from CrackBerry Santa for a BlackBerry PlayBook. If you're not a member, you can register for free. As soon as the BlackBerry PlayBook goes on sale in 2011, we'll pick one up from RIM's elves and get it out to out to you. The contest is open worldwide. Please just leave a single comment to this post. GOOD LUCK, and be sure to spread the CrackBerry Holiday Cheer this month!!

cambridgeguy13

yes!! i may literally have a heart attack if i win!

SeriousMojo

that make two of us!!!wow!

ignites

still going to be only one of us.. Cus i'll win =)

Rootbrian

Would be awesome to have one of those :D

spegs

I would use it to destroy all the iPads at my local starbucks. Oh and send out merry xmas messages

Fishkydid

It would nice to win anything. lucky I do not know anybody that has a iPad. It would be nice to show people that Apple is not the only fish in the pond!

chowhoundb

I could not agree more.

RifatCam

It would be awesome.. the next best christmas gift would be Rogers giving out the os6 for 9700

simbre

It would be fantastic to win!

DaErnst

how many reply´s are possible?

DenDen2008

Pick me, pick me, pick me!! :D

SirJimboJangles

Extra-skinny comment in mobile view haha.
I want one though! This is probably the only way I'd ever get one too...

Sainthak

Yaaaaaaa
The year
Of the
BB

omexas

wow its like wining the lottery probably chanses are 1 to 10000 lol not gona happen for me :D

daisydukesss

So you wanna destroy, and then be nice? Awesome.

eelect

Christmas will be long gone when you get this!

kmaret

I agree. only replace "local starbucks" with "workplace". The fanboys I have the displeasure to work with need to be taught a lesson in what practical, awesome technology is.

Zando32

That's funny right there! I'd love to have the Playbook, I could definitely put it to good use for work/family. Merry Christmas to all!

kjz40

I'm new on Crackberry, so beginners luck means I'm probably going to win it!

Phil_H

Third'd. The heart attack would probably be worth it though.

jams13

Hey, give me something to do while i'm in the hospital recovering from the heartattack lol... I'm game :)

richt

Wow!... Nice.... put me down for one

sebamontini

let's be optimistic about it :)

zal#CB

I can picture all of the possibilities :D

slalom

I'd love to win one, because I'm going to need at least two!

WPFC

I would love to have one for my sermon notes when preaching.

memphis_rea

this would make an awesome christmas present!!!

nuchdog

please let the crackbery Santa find me! This would definitely ruin my other gifts. Plus my sister wants an iPad and it would be sweat to rock a playbook while her technology challenged hands fumble with an ipad.

noobuser

Did I enter already? I'm soooo confused.

hodie63

i love being confused, maybe this gift would help. happy holidays.

So-sa

If only one is going to be given..I'll just thank the Lord now that it's me. ;0)

BacktoBB

I have never won anything, so this would be great!

dkingsf

LOL I was gonna say that! With the number of comments, our chances get less everyday, but here's my entry!

moore503

You are in for lots of sleeples nights, my friend, how will you everr be able to turn it off? And thank you Black Berry for making someone's year a verry lucky one.Thank you Crackberry for this contest, and all the other cool stuff you do for us, month after month.....

Doo-wayne

I'd love this to smoke my son's iPad

chrisw13

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to see a Playbook under the treeeeeee. Merry Xmas!

jjcampnr

All my iPad and iPhone loving friends harass me constantly about my out of date BlackBerry Storm and the ancient OS it runs. If I could get my grubby hands on a PlayBook I could finally rub their faces in BlackBerry greatness!

mgordish

Please pick me - I want a playbook really bad and IPADs are overrated..

NKumapayi

CJH315

This would really make my Christmas since my kids got all the good stuff. Lol. Merry Christmas everyone and good luck!

ilabelu

well, considering channukah has come and gone, and i really didn't get much of what i asked for, starting 2011 off with a new playbook would be the perfect gadget gift and playmate for my bb bold. shalom.

rbbriones

jsdaa

Would love to win this!

wongri

What a great item to have for the new year!

levinej

abenbet

i'll need a quadruple bi-pass

rsalinas69

I'm loving my new Blackberry Curve 3G 9300. Great phone with lots of new features compared to my 8310. My first experience with a blackberry was with the 7100 back in 2005, both my wife and I have been hooked ever sine. When ever it came time to renew our account we looked at other phones to see what else was out there. Looked at the iphone and the android, but couldn't do it. Having my blackberry is like having a good pet dog. She's been faithful to me, and never left my side. Why would I leave her? I've done everything to dropping it Lake Vermilion (took the battery out and dropped both phone and battery in bag of rice for the day) put battery back in and still works, to dropping on ground when getting out of my truck. It still works. Try that with another phone. Love the calendar sink option, messenger, and password keeper to name a few. All features that are not available on other phones. Thanks RIM for providing outstanding phones and crackberry for a place to go to share and seek out answers.

trobi100

Although I'd hate for you to actually have a heart attack, just in case you do, may I have your Playbook, please?

dijnnie2u

kwechter

Santa Baby, slip a PlayBook under the tree, for me.

so hurry down the chimney tonight!

JerS710

I need one, want one, got to have one. Not the attack.

jmccluney

Yeah, the playbook looks hot. You have to see it versus the i pad on you tube.

kma07

I think I'll have one too!!

kayla_king

If I won the playbook, it would be the best gift I have received of all times. Presently I am in college and this device would be more than useful for me to do my research for my classes.

shortie2cu

I would like to win but usually don't winning this would connect me to the world without having to bring out my laptop everytime I leave the house!

tcaymans27

Great news for the NFL football teams they could use a new PLAYBOOK!!!!!!!

DB2#CB

I know CPR so I can save you if you have a heart attack. Then you can give me your playbook out of appreciation.

dan.kotlewski

The playbook looks awesome!

wards33

It would be a nice start to the new year to win. And a chance to show the world that there are other devices other than apple
