ColorWare BlackBerry Curve 8900

Man oh man does time every fly... we're already just 11 months and two days away from CrackBerry's third birthday! It's going to be tough to top this year's birthdays and festivities, but don't worry...we'll do it! But before we get too far ahead of ourselves...we've still got some Birthday 2.0 business to take care of:

ColorWare Curve Winner: The winner of the first of our birthday contest took delivery of his prize yesterday and sent in pictures to share with CrackBerry Nation. From over 9,000 contest entries, it was Nick Sheldon of the UK who won a BlackBerry Curve 8900 custom painted by ColorWare. Nick took a multi-color approach on his 8900 which came out looking really rich! Nick went Carbon Black for the main body and back, Tan on the top and bottom, Steel on the sides and finished it off with a Candy Apple keyboard. You can check out more photos after the break. Congrats Nick. And thanks ColorWare!!

Note to Other Contest Winners: With sooooo many contest winners, it took a bit of time to reach out to and hear back from everyone, but at this point the winners info has all been past onto the contest sponsors who have either already sent out your prizes and/or are in the middle of processing them. If you've received your prize already then sweet! And if you're still waiting, it should be hear soon. If for some reason you think there's been a glitch, be sure to contact site support with your details and we'll make sure you're taken care of.

iBee Farting 10,000 Copy Giveaway: You didn't think we'd forget about this did you? STAY TUNED to CrackBerry.com because some time this week we are going to go for take two of the iBee Farting Giveaway. The last time we tried this we crashed the software store servers, but our software partner has completed some big server upgrades so we're going to try it again - it'll be a good stress test (and if we exceed capacity again, don't worry... even more server power is coming online soon and we'll do a take three if necessary). 10,000 free fart apps are coming your way soon!

I think i would've stayed with the red keyboard and the rest black. or any combination of just 2 colors, but hey, congrats anyway!

What did he do, hit Randomize on the colorware site? Grey, black, red and beige?

Good lord, that thing is painted like a 1970's kitchen.

do you smell that? all of ya'll haters. let him do his goddamn thing, and don't get salty because you won nothing!!

Wow, I think even Kevin was stumped by this color choice. All he could say was it looked "really rich". Colorware shouldn't have allowed this to happen, they should've screwed up his order on purpose and saved him from himself.

This is the worst thing i have ever seen! I own the 8900 and even my phone is in pain! Couldnt have been worse!:(

um.. maybe it looked better in his head before he ordered it? I know i shouldn't be hating but if I was color blind i would still be disgusted. But it was free, so why not have some fun with it?

Not hatin at all but wow! To each his own. I just did up a stormtrooper 8900 on colorwares site,white/black. HOT!!!

Congratulations on winning that, man. But that is the ugliest looking Blackberry EVER! I hope you regret the color scheme you chose for the rest of your life...

(not really. but for real...)

Man I am sorry the blokes in the UK have as much for color sense as they have for their dental care... That has to be the ugliest color scheme on that phone you could have made. Yuck!

how on earth do you end up with that colour combination? especially after seeing the gorgeous orange one that was advertised on the post!! What a waste of a phone. I know its been said before, but I had to say it again. I could have won this, and it would have been sick. This guy must have gotten his inspiration from looking in the toilet a day after a burrito feast. Kevin, if there are any future competitions like this, make sure to get members to describe the colour combo they would use, and choose the winner based on that criteria. We all know this is an artistic abortion.

Oh My GAWD! Out of all of the colors this guy could have picked and he picks black and brown!?!?!? What a waste!
