* 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!



I've read about this thing for a few weeks now and I think it would be very nice to have. I'm hoping to upgrade my phone in the next few months and it would be really nice to have this device to go along side of my new blackberry phone.

I'm begging you, please select me to win this. I have been such a loyal blackberry person for years. I deserve to win this. I will be the poster child for using this and will tell everyone else that they need to get a playbook.

Santa honey, one thing I really do need, the playbook
In black please
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

I really, really, really want a Playbook. But I wish everyone the best of luck in getting picked. Happy Holidays. ^_^

Boy you guys and gals are gonna be so jealous of me when I win muhahahaha.
on a more serious note, I hope your holidays are warm and safe!

I love blackberry I sell them everyday
Going to be getting a playbook for sure
Itd be awsome if I winn!!
If I dont win congrats to who ever does, your one lucky person :)

Dear Santa, I have been a really good nerd this year. I would take a IOU from CrackBerry any day. After reading all the information about the BlackBerry PlayBook on these forums, I feel as if I already know what it would be like to have one. Now I get to make one free wish for one. Thank you CrackBerry. I will go to sleep early in case you decide to drop a IOU under my Christmas tree tonight. And please save a couple of those cookies for Kevin.

If I won,I wouldn't suck as bad!!I would actually be a little on the "he doesn't suck that bad....". Level of suckyness scale. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I saw that it was 12:30 and I thought I was too late but then I realized it was PST and that I was ahead, this would be an awesome late christmas gift

I stopped believing in Santa when I was younger , but if for some reason Santa gave a PlayBook to be Donated to me then I would Believe again , So I wanna win

I'm a little late to this party, but here I am. A PlayBook would be a great way to start 2011, because I'm hoping that RIM can keep me on their hardware with QNX; I'm just about ready to jump ship to a certain robotic platform. Here's hoping!

I am receiving nothing for christmas and could really utilize one of these so please consider my for the playbook

I would love to win this right now. I love BB. Need this in my life right now to shut down ipad users when i see them.

I hope I can get this wonderful playbook as my christmas present. I believe it is much better than ipad. Thank You

I would literally run around my house screaming like a kid on xmas when they get that one present they have been asking for the whole year! =D happy holidays folks =)

I cant wait for it to come out! I have a new baby on the way so I have no chance to buy one. Heres for wishful thinking!

Thank you CrackBerry for your innovative contests! The PlayBook looks amazing, and I am breathlessly awaiting the results of your contest!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Keeping my fingers crossed that a Playbook will be coming my way! Thanks for the opportunity.

This would be the best gift ever for Christmas... Merry Christmas to all and the entire team at CB..

whew, long day at work, couldnt check crackberry until now. so happy this contest ends PST, not EST. Merry Christmas, hope I win!

"Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse."

Merry Christmas CrackBerry!

One in 12000 odds? I take it!!!!! Probably will be the only way I could end up with one of these beauties..........Merry Christmas Crackberry!!!

This would be so awesome! I would actually give it to my husband since we didn't have enough extra cash to buy each other gifts after buying for our 2 kids! I know I'd use it being at home all day, but I would still wrap it for a late Christmas present and call it his :) Good luck everyone!

I love crackberrY.coM
