* 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 want it, I want it, I want it!! Way to go Crackberry, again you have outdone yourself. And to make it even better, maybe you could have your elf deliver it??

Dear Santa Berry, I have been extra good this year. Lost weight, quit smoking, and would love to add this awsome pad to my BB arsenal!

i can't believe i'm actually going to win, there's so many people to thank. God of Course, and devil..........can't have ying without yang. ja know what i mean?

I will give my ipad to my father if on xmas morning i win a playbook!!

OK, so we know that every die-hard BB user (and especially"Crack(Berry)Heads???) would definitely love to win this contest!

Thanks for all the fun contests...and for being a site I rely on heavily, since I am definitely a CrackBerry addict!

Enjoy the Holidays!

If I win this I will have a "It's a Nintendo 64!!! NiNtEnDo 64!!! Thank you thank you thank you Santa! Nintendo 64!!!" moment for sure.

OMFG!!!!!!!!! As soon as I saw this, I let out a shriek so loud, my colleagues thought I got stabbed. But....winning this would make me a grinch-less Crackberrier!!!!! Please, oh please oh please, PICK ME!!!!!

Wow, I love to play and I love books. Its 2 of my favorite things added in a blackberry. Who could ask for more.

Merry Christmas everyone! I would LOVE for the wife to open up an IOU for a Plabook come Christmas morning! Good luck to all!

I'm psyched about the Blackberry Playbook!!!! As someone who is constantly on the go--work, school, and volunteering, this would be a great way to keep me connected to help others.

Good Luck to Everyone :)

I would love to have a new Playbook. Sorry for posting a second time, my first was a reply, so I wasn't sure if that counted.

I always left a chance to other Crackberry members the other times. Now, this is MY time to win. Sorry guys, this one is MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......if i win im seriously gonna fly up out the crutches im in and start walkin if i win da PLAYBOOK..... great giveaway CRACKBERRY~LUV U GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!


Count me as well.

Though if RIM can launch PBook in January, that would be gift for me itself. Just Can't wait to touch it damn!!!

If you only have one to give away then I guess I'll take it. Looks like you got no choice cause I'm the only one who posted today.

Does the model in the santa suit come with it? probably not but wow would it be nice to be the first kid on the block to showoff my new playbook!

I would really love to win this BlackBerry PlayBook as I plan to purchase one for myself but would also really like to get one for my Mom since she really wants one, but I don't have enough money to do so. If I won this, I would then be able to gift one to my Mom who would really love it! Please pick me to win.

Thanks for an incredible contest, too!

WOWWIE!!!! Best Contest I'VE EVER HEARD OF, friggin awasome. Please,please,please can i have it. I'd give anything for a playbook, but am a poor starving student and have not the money.

OOO Pretty. Does the fact that christmas is my birthday help the cause. Then it can be like a double whammy. A Birthday and Christmas present to me :)

Thank you for the opportunity to win. I hope everyone has a great holiday season. If I win, then it will be a great Christmas for me. If I don't than a very jealous congrats to the one who win. Peace.

Holy cow!!!! Whoever wins this contest is going to be so psyched. Including me!!! Good luck to everyoen and thank you CrackBerry. :)

Since we are in the festive mood:

Merry Christmas one and all :)

And to all those who don't celebrate have a cracking day!

Lovely idea with the whole IOU!

Let's hope RIM picks up some speed in 2011, and starts clawing some market share back!

YAY! Playbook is SO much better than the ipad =D My dad has an ipad and he updated it so he can multitask. But the thing is SO big and heavy and it takes forever to load stuff... I would much, much rather have an sleek, amazing, and just plain awesome blackberry playbook instead. Go Blackberry!

It would be awesome to win :D no only i would have an playbook, but also i could show my friends why RIM rules :D

I'd really love to get one for free, but it's just a matter of time. If I don't win, I'll buy it. I just cannot wait to put my hands on it!
