CrackBerry Giveaway: Leave a comment to this blog post to win your own pair of touchscreen-friendly BlackBerry Gloves!

Well that didn't take long. Less than a month ago back at CES 2012 we got our hands (literally) on the original BlackBerry Glove. No, this isn't a product RIM is actually selling, but rather was given away as free swag at the BlackBerry booth to those who asked nicely. And while the intent behind version one of the BlackBerry Glove was nice, it was a little low-tech, with the tips cut off of the index and finger and thumb, allowing for your actual hands to still touch the device. Technically it worked, but it also resulted in frozen finger tips if you actually put them to use in cold weather (plus they looked a little too fashion forward/risky for some).

Enter the BlackBerry Glove 2.0. Picked up as a freebie at a BlackBerry DevCon Europe party I attended, version 2.0 of the BlackBerry Glove has gone high tech, featuring finger tips on the index and finger and thumb that work with capacitive touchscreens. With greyed out tips, the style is sexy, and the gloves just work. It's a nice improvement.

In true CrackBerry fashion we had some fun with this one... check out the video above for the Infomercial for the BlackBerry Glove 2.0! I'm not sure we'll ever see these go on sale so I don't have a price or release date, but if you think RIM should sell some BlackBerry Gloves, express your interest in the comments! You never know what'll happen...

I find with the 9900 that any gloves will work. You can operate the whole phone without the toutch screen because of the glove friendly optical trackpad. Either way, pick me!!

maskedmascot

What's crackalacking crackas! So if I read correctly there is a glove up 4 grabs that is high tech and basically a crackafieds dream 4 there own special crackberry. Now honestly I didn't the vid I'm cheating and going off of what yall said about it. So it may or may not b an item that who knows when it will show up so then I have 2 ask from one crackberry 2 another crackberry. did yall make a bet 2 c who would win the superbowl and this is yall owning up 2 ur end of the bet cuz yall were rooting 4 the patriots? Lol I'm just wondering is all cuz the prize 4 this contest is an item yall got 4 free but don't get me wrong if yall give it away then ill b more than happy 2 take it ya cuz if its a crackaberry item then this crack head wants it. I mean come on 4 the last 2 almost 3 yrs my wallet is one of the leather pouch thingys and its the best wallet I have ever had in my life so like I said if its crackberry ill take it y not right lol

lionstan

I am also in Canada, so these are very much needed.

Darlaten

I want one so badly.

Oh, and RIM, if you are watching - look how many people are posting to win a pair of gloves. You'd be foolish not to sell these to the public - people want it and it's a great marketing tool as well.

sonyvaio182

I live in Fergus, Ontario and need these gloves! sooo cold! :S

mainman1303

Would love to rock these gloves!!! Send em to me!!!!

gquan14

Interesting indeed! Sign me up, would love to win a pair.

jaiskywalk

Wow. Someone tell Lord Vader to bring these gloves at once. Then we will crush the smartphone rebelion in one fell swoop.

Tony_11

Send those gloves this way!! Freezing now in CA some of these days.. I hate taking mine off just to type, or spend 5 mins on 2 words D:

mysticmeg

MysticMeg

I want a pair of blackberry 2.0 gloves!!! My hands are freezing!!!!

bovcrx

It's not cold here in TX, but I like repping BB so these would pair nicely with my BB shoes on order.

dakid2k6

New pair of gloves would make a great Bday gift for me. :-)

Good luck to all.

syke2k12

It's my birthday today, these would make a great gift from Crackberry.......

MY HANDS ARE FREEEZZZING!!! Lol I'd like some gloves :D

mr_silva

they sell these for $2 at Giant Tiger in my area i had a pair for about 2 weeks now lol

Maxey05

I think RIM should sell these gloves and invest in them. Take advantage of their strnegth in having physical keyboards and people will be rocking some sweet gloves! Put their name out there on everything they can! Nothing to lose.. Got to #BEBOLD! If I get some gloves I will promote :D

msweet#CB

I'll buy a second pair if you give me one free

wobly

Great for using the Playbook in Colorado!

sreidenb

These would be awesome to have! They seem so practical.

X132

I constantly find myself trying to touch the screen with my gloves on. The security doors in my apartment building require you to touch the bar with your bare hand to open. I wonder if they will work on that also.

Dent4DA08

¡Me gusta! Here in SW Michigan (where I go to school), the sun conspires with the wind on a daily basis and makes using my Torch outside such a pain. Please choose me! :)

dakid72

Hey you Kevin holla at ya boy! I need.....ok not need, I want some of those gloves, they would make a great early birthday present for me!
Thanks in advance CrackBerry and ShopCrackBerry.com and also to Kevin for snagging them just for me!

espresso1967

mcheney7

As a Field Service Engineer I'm in constant need of gloves and pocket warmers when using my playbook outdoors. These Blackberry 2.0 gloves are what's needed for my kind of work. Love to win a pair and am willing to buy as well.

phil1988

I work outside, its cold, i need those gloves!!!

Rim should at least sell them or include a pair in the box with their touchscreen phones and playbooks. Would be a great marketing tool!

hestonk

with the BB at least...even if u have regular gloves on that don't use the touch screen - you can still answer and hangup calls! droid and iPhone - you gotta take the glove off or get something like this!

LordLazare

jghellion

Those will keep my digits warm during those cold waits on the elevated subway platform!

Very nice Kevin, one more thing that you forgot to mention is that this product also allows you to use your touchscreen without leaving any grease or dirt on you phone or PlayBook.

Keep the hard work

Mikey112

I'd love to win a pair or these gloves! Right now I wear these huge gloves which don't even fit into my pockets so I do not even have the opportunity to take my BlackBerry out when I'm on the go in the cold weather. These gloves would make using my BlackBerry in the cold much easier!
