* 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!!

I am looking forward to this way more than the iPad!!

Best website I have ever been on as I find myself here 20 times a day to see if there is any new news. Never would have known about 0s6 leaking for my 9650 without this site.

Thanks Guys and keep up the good work.

Awesome giveaway!! This would be a FANTABULOUS 21st birthday present =D

GJW

Dear Santa,

I've been a very good boy all year...and this would be an even better present than a Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle (with a compass in the stock)!

Thanks...Ralphie

Evan_O

I love crackberry and all the useful content, but these giveaways are an added bonus. I would love to win this so I could not only own one, but also CONVERT others to the GREATNESS of the BB!

yannerd

mike22

Malifus

Crackberry Rocks!!!!

causbrite

Theres so many people asking to win, I see no point in entering the contest saying I want to win. Also, no way on earth are you guys going to post me a pad to the UK, it would cost a fortune then I would end up paying import tax as well, so I wont be entering the competition!!!! Even though I want it.

albee 1

Would love a shot at the contest. Please ad my name to what should be the biggest contest yet! Nice job to all who thought of this!

tstens11

This is going to be the best Tablet on the market once it hits. Actually it is the best

thebat380

Thanks Crackberry for the opportunity!
The iPad leaves the Playbook to be desired!

daillskillz20

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO CRACKBERRY! LOVE YOU GUYS.

computertekguy

Every body Pauses and stares at me
These Ipads and Androids are wrong as you can see,
I don't know just who to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve, is as RIM as it can be!

All I want for Christmas
is a blackberry,
maybe a tablet pc,
or how about a Playbook please!

Gee, if I could only
have a Playbook please,
then I could BBM you
"Merry Christmas."

frankola1

I definitely would love one free playbook. CB, you guys are great with all the offers, infos, and great bb goodies. Thanks! Keep it up!

Crackberry

Mischief433

Best Santa Ever! Thanks Crackberry

daspollak

Winning a Playbook would be the culmination of all of my life's dreams.

INNOVATOR

I wish I wish that this Christmas wish will come true.

After having purchased 3 Blackberry smartphones, constantly promoting Blackberry & Crackberry, having encouraged hoards of people to go the Blackberry way; this would be THE IDEAL REWARD for me. Of course with the Playbook as my device of pleasure and encouragement; I will then be marketing it and encouraging others to buy.

Thank you.

Live with passion. HAVE A SUPER FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!!

Hoping fervently,
Alan Atkinson

weaselnoze

ksmontoya

Happy Holidays!!! Now gimme a PlayBook pleaseeeee :-D

MrHelyar

Please leave a comment? Sure I will, and would love a Playbook! I'm a addict

Legellan

I've been very good Santa and I'd never ask for anything from you again if you leave one under my tree!

Mismutek

What an amazing Christmas gift a Play Book would be. Something of computing capability. I only use my phone as computer has died and no resources to fix or replace it. One can only hope to win such an item. Hopefully it's someone who is still a Blackberry fan and not someone trying to win one who has jumped ship and just wants something for free.

jbliv63

Well, I love BlackBerry, I love books, and I love to play...so you know what that means!

mak7187

awesome! schweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

Jimberry Storm

Bear7079

WOO HOO. you guys know how to spread the holiday cheer!

gdong

cheers merry christmas!

Supa_Fly1

I seriously would LOVE to have the PlayBook. I'd watch TV, code, educate, and display it to all 10 executives at the company I work with under contract. Their trying to goto iPad's and I want to show them once and for ALL that their existing BES infrastructure is so WORTH it.

To gain success you MUST have your PlayBook in HAND.

ronmcse

Wooo Hooo! Santa Baby! Me Likeee!

ognat42

This is my lucky entry. I know it. No one needs to enter anymore. I got it. The elves told me so. Ot were those the voices in my head. They are getting louder by the day. The only way to shut them up is a playbook.

wunhang

I'm very likely to get one for myself when this comes out. Getting it for free would just make my smile that much bigger when I get it in my hands!

km40fast

Hot diggity - what a way to get a Playbook. Great site!

muydess

This would make me so happy. Tired of hearing and looking at that damn iPad

andy957

I would love to win this, as I have held off on the iPad so as not to give Apple ALL my money. LOL

Stormski

Dear CrackBerry Santa,
I have been nice this year, and all I want is a BlackBerry PlayBook! Happy Holidays!

thefinks

I need this one bad. Lost my job and my wife deserves a great gift this year after giving birth to our first child. Help me help her have a merry christmas. Thanks crackberry

Drasadex

Awesome!! I want one of those PlayBooks! Pick me to win!

Phony bologna

I've had my concerns about buying a $500 Playbook because I wasn't sure about sticking with BlackBerry, and we don't know if the PB will tether to another device. With the acquisition of TAT, I'm hoping BB re-enters the smartphone race again because I prefer BB services and usability over every other device on the market but it really needs to be stepped up in terms of the consumer side of things. My device is the center of my busy life and I'd prefer that device to be a BB above anything else. A free Playbook? That would ease some of my emotional distress while sticking with a BB and waiting for QNX to hit the smartphone market in a couple of years. I feel I can write whatever I want here because I don't think anyone will read this. I'm typing naked right now and have a parrot on my shoulder.

scottaco

If I ever win a contest, let it be this one!

Pete Sake

WOW.Now this would be one hell of a stocking stuffer! Thanks CB!

R2d2c3po

Hey guys, since I have my Bold 9700 I'm sort of addicted to Blackberry and this site. No other phone has yet been able to meet all my needs! When I first read about the PlayBook, I immediately started saving money and,of course, counting the days. I cannot wait until that masterpiece is released, and what could be a better than starting 2011 with an IOU for a PlayBook...

Wish you all the best, a relaxing christmas and a happy new year! Keep on rocking the site admins, this is great :) !

Greets from Germany, Chris

BillyBee124

I'd like it all the Playbook and Santa's Helper
