* 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!!

CaptainBert

Before the play book I was iPad or no tablet at all, but ever since you posted the video comparing the web browsing speeds of each the Playbook had my heart and I wouldnt think of ever having another tablet but a playbook. The iPad has some catching up to do in my opinion!

Long live RIM <3

Kris Gent

VuN86

This is a pretty AWESOME post-Christmas gift. As a side note, I wonder if Crackberry ever proof-reads their postings...

blackberrymetal

T'was the night before Christmas
and all the forums was an empty trail

Users and abusers were waiting for st. Nick
And that one special email

All stuck to their screens with wide open eyes
Any moment now someone will be getting a surprise

Clicking refresh, every few seconds taking a look
For tonight someone will be the owner of a BlackBerry play book

but the time has not yet came and that is all right
Until then, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night

Jassal2008

I was dreaming of this contest. Comon crackberry pick me I want some new technology badly.

Then fingers crossed in the morning, I will have my PlayBook
