* 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!!

Its fitting that you guys announce this on the first day of Chanukah. Although I am not Jewish, I think its nice that you guys extended this courtesy.

DanielLui1

I really want to win a Blackberry Playbook tablet device. I've been wanting one since the day the launch date announcement came out from Research In Motion. I think that despite the fact that this device won't be out until sometime early next year, it is a device that will certainly beat the Android tablets or even the iPad as the best tablet device there is so I hope I win one.

chriswild

Awesome Contest!
I would LOVE a Blackberry Playbook for Christmas c:

boomerb5

Is a new PlayBook. More even than a Red Rider BB gun with a compass in the stock.

Esteve1

Thanks for picking me I need one of these....
