* 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!!

Asher Elefant

Truly I dont know what to say. My wife has had her eye on this since RIM announced it. Its been a very hard year for her. Her mom passed away eight weeks ago and her dad is very ill. I know I cant make her pain of losing a parent go away but this might make the holiday a little nicer for her.

Pooman

Oh how I would love to have a Playbook Santa!

I've been an awful good girl

This would make my Christmas a really special one. Being i never switched my phones until the contract is up and then blackberry OS6 is on the new style which is a great improvement,now the playbook should kick the ipads butt. Just hope i get a chance to actually see it.

ewakil12

pwgs

And Happy New Year... I hope!

Jymn12

Dear Santa,

I know you know what I did this year was stupid. That's why I'm still sporting this Tour 9630 your gave me last year. But my wife has been AMAZING! Stay at home mom with four kids under the age of six!! She cleans, cooks, changes diapers, runs errands, and then has to put up with me when I get home!

I want two things for Christmas:

1). a special gift of health and happiness to my friends over at CrackBerry.com (shameful plug but he needs to know!)
2). some durable electrical device to make my wife's life easier, preferably around 7 inches wide with multitasking abilities (please do not send an iPad as it would not help, she needs something that is actually portable. She currently uses and iPod Touch to Instant message me during the day but most of the time it does not work. I want her to have something she can rely on).

Thanks, and I'll do better this next year, honest.
--Jymn

kaotik_187

I creamed just reading the title of the contest!

Its a shame people dont realize that putting ipads and iphones under their trees will cause them to catch fire. o well, some people just have to learn the hard way.

Hey Steve jobs, I topped my tree with my adobe flash ornament, it really ties together my tree's capabilties. It is soooo nice having something finished properly and works as a complete unit. Happy Holidays apphole, I mean a$$hole, I mean, YOU ROCK CRACK/BALCKBERRY!!!!!

TTune

Even an IOU is far superior to the competely imaginary PlayBook under the tree at the moment :)

(My poor wife is sort of like "Why wait if you can have an iPad right away? What else would you get for Christmas?? etc.")

Dear RIM: You have made life very difficult for my wife. Just sayin'..

--TTune
