* 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!!

CrackBerry Santa Contest: Win an IOU for a BlackBerry PlayBook this Christmas!

11229 Comments

Wowza... talk about the contest of the year! I want in, pick me please, I'll make the crackberry addicts proud.

I literally have Foreigner's "I want to know what love is" playing in my head now when i saw the BB Playbook and this contest.......

A free playbook? .....why not :)

I'd love to have a playbook to go with my bold...but i got a feeling that its gonna be a lot more expensive here in France.

given the nearly 1000 comments already here, im fairly certain i dont have a great shot at this. but, good luck to all, and ive got my fingers crossed!
cant wait to put this to good use for my business.

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.

CrackBerry baby, slip a PlayBook under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
CrackBerry baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight!

I want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want itI want it I want it I want it I want it.................................................PLEASE!!!! I'm poor and everyone is probably richer than I, HELP ME GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really really really would love to have one of these.....think about it as a thank you to me for spending the past 5 years in the middle east protecting and serving.....little patriotism and gratitude never hurt! lol

this contest is better than the torch, i expect waaaaaaaaaay more entries than what it had. I NEEED THIS

oooh baby.. Please Please... I've been a very good boy this year. I have not jumped ship from the blackberry world even when verion decided to screw us over with no storm 2/3 refresh device for OS 6. I would love a playbook to become the envy of all my ipad co-workers....

I would love a playbook. Any chance santa's little helper could deliver it I'm sure santa will need time to relax after the holidays!

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.

Oh, wow, this would be a SWEET gift to win!! It looks like an amazing device -- I'm so excited to see all the really awesome products RIM will be releasing next year!

Finally a reason to login to the "new" CB. :) Now to figure out if my new Playbook will work with my Storm2.

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.

Great!!!! i hope santa crackberry and his addict elves can find it in their heart to give me a BB PLAYBOOK!!!! Wouldn't want them to bring an ipad by mistake though... cause i gonna have to go all grinch and destroy Xmas..... and the i-PAD!!

I'm still going to buy one so I just want to win this one to walk around my home with one in each hand.

Guys, you're always on top of all BlackBerry websites! And this contest shows it! My kingdom for a PlayBook!

Would love to win this. What with QNX and the acquisition of TAT I think the Playbook is going to be awesome.

Wow, the crazy amazing contests you guys come up with, makes the awesome colorware contest seem like nada (and I would have LOVED that). Thanks as always for the chance CB!

I bought an iPad, decided after 5 days to return it and wait for the Playbook, it would be awesome if I won one instead of having to wait in line to buy one!

"Gimmie Gimmie Never Gets" is what I have always been told, but in the case of this Crackberry contest, it just MIGHT...lol

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

I'd love to win this for my husband, he won't let me buy him anything big for Christmas cuz his school stuff costs so much!

OMG Crackberry is the best site! This would completely make my holidays and birthday :D
please please pick me! The perfect complement for my bold 9700!!

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!!!!!

I guess that this post will have the biggest number of comments ever on CrackBerry. Early Merry Christmas everyone :)

all i want for christmas is a blackberry playbook .... a playbook ... a playbook
all i want for christmas is a blackberry playbook .... so i cant tweet on a blackberry tablet

I don't mind to have another tablet @ home if I win (btw, I own Ipad already). Great contese Crackberry!! Way to go!

It amuses me to get lucky ticket for something I don't even know if it would deliver what it promised...But as Christmas is coming, let me say we'll just hope for all the good.

I obsessively check CrackBerry.com throughout the day. (The page is bookmarked on my BlackBerry Bold 9000.) Today my obsession has really paid off! I'm so glad you are doing this contest. A PlayBook (and a Bold 9780) are at the top of my wish list this Christmas.

If I win the Playbook I promise to send you photos of me using it on the beach, at work, shopping, on my deck, and anywhere else you want, from right here in my sunny Caribbean isle. Really i will!

Oh yes, would love one! And if the hot Santa's Helper in the photo can be thrown in as well - that would be great!

I am asking to be entered in this contest.

by posting this I agree to all terms entered upon by postiing, and I want it to be known, that I have full intentions on winning said contest.

Crackberry and RIM are my new heroes. How cool is that ? Winning a PlayBook as a Christmas present ? I never really won anything anyway so why not leave a comment here :) Might just work... Or not.

The blackberry playbook is awesome and I hope that I am the lucky winner :)

Happy Holidays everyone!

"Army Strong"

You mean I leave a comment for Santa and all I (potentially) get is a stinkin' IOU?

(Although I hope I have need to thank him for it later)

Even if I don't win, Merry Christmas Crackberry!!!! And infinite thanx for all the BlackBerry info!! (did i lay it on too thick? LMAO!)

Wow, I love contests like this! Great prize and we don't have to work to be entered...lol! Happy Holidays to everyone!

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

I'm almost positive this is the first time I've posted anything on here. I watch it everday though. I can't wait to get my new Playbook.

The theme I've been waiting for all my life. A Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time. Poetry. Sheer poetry.

i would love to win a playbook...but then again who wouldn't? Pick me becuase its my turn. Goodluck everybody!!!!!!

Fingers are crossed and I hope I win but wish the best of luck to all of you too :) Happy Holiday!!! XOXO

Another great contest made by the benevolent CRACKBERRY =)
Merry Christmas everyone!!
メリークリスマス!

Already have 5 computers and 2 smartphones in a household of 2. I can actually justify another computer, but may as well transition over into the tablet world with a PlayBook.

I need to win this for Christmas!!! I promise I won't ask for anything else Santa!!! Please pick me... Merry Christmas to all!!!

This is a perfect idea for a membership drive...worked on me! I've been wandering around your forums for years now, this was the kick in the rear to get involved!

I would be greatly grateful to win this item. Please choose me so I can show all my iPad friends my loyalty to RIM.

Are you serious? That would be awesome to get my hands on this. Count me in. You guys are the blaze!!!!

A Play Book instead of an Ipad boy would that make my IPhone friends jealous. Told them BB was better.

What a great contest. Hope that CB Santa can deliver a BB Playbook to me. I’ll even leave my tree up till I receive it just so I can post a picture of the late Christmas gift arrival :)

A free Playbook?

Happy Howl-i-daze to me, then!

AhhhhhwwwrrrrooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo!!!!!!!

Thanks CB!

-Wolf-

I've entered like every contest and haven't even won when there was 1 out of 100 chances but this would surely make up for all of that.

Hell yes I will take one!!! I've wanted one since the unveiling! I have so much hope for the PlayBook, RIM, and hopefully all of the new BlackBerry phones that can be paired with it!

Dear SantaBerry. I've been awfully good this year. Please let me win a Playbook and I'll make sure there's "something" in the milk and cookies.

Make a little boy's dream come true. I sold my piece of crapware IPad after a months use. I really want a tablet replacement. And not one of the 2-thousand android tablets hitting the streets daily.

I would lve a playbook as well. I'm a military guy and would love to have this to use while deployed!! good luck to all of you. RIM for the win!!!!

If i win the playbook that will SURELY MEAN that Santa Has arrived at my home XD cheers and good luck for everybody! and thanks kevin and crackberry for making always these fun contests

I would love a playbook as well. I'm a military guy and would love to have this to use while deployed!! good luck to all of you. RIM for the win!!!!

Oh my over a 1000 comments already!
As a college student on a budget (don't ask why or how I have a Blackberry) it would be great to have this as a member of my academic arsenal.
I hope everyone has a merry Christmas, a great winter holiday, and an outstanding new year.
