* 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!!

MrJanio

a great prize! great product! cant wait to get my hands on one of them.

pdoublejmk

I swear I will not be naughy again if I win lol

captain_tinker

YES! That would be fabulous! What an interesting and revolutionary piece of equipment this is going to be, and will likely be a pioneer in how mobile devices are made going forward. This could conceivably be very useful for me in my job, and as I very much enjoy products from RIM, this is looking like it will be a winner... Here's hoping! Finger's Crossed!

ndsouza

This would be awesome!!! Pick me and I will be your friend forever!!! :-)

This Contest Rocks! First off I'd like to thank all my fans for allowing me to win such an awesome contest; without you, I'd be nothing. I'd also like to thank the public school system for never teaching me how to correctly use a semi-colon; oh and thanks for teaching me the dead art of cursive. Maybe I'll re-learn it on my new BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK!!!
