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!

This phone is really hot. I like the colors.

Anony

I cry for that poor BB 8900. That's horrible.

rdy78

wow that's some choice of colors well to each his own :)

DJ G.MAC

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!

devo6786

what a choice of colors. this hurts me, rim and the 8900.

graymulligan

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.

chicagoan

And he won, because?????

juKe187

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

Anonymo

OMG! you mean it smells as bad as it looks. Quick grab a can of Krylon I can fix this!!

none1234

the poor sole must be color blind

yoyoslap

Lebron James called...... he wants his phone back

cpuking2009

lebron rocks a gold colorware bold.

scuebydue

I say congrats...but ugh...

Anonym

This is a crime, Gross ugliness with the intent to talk.

Anonymous117

not hating... but that is a putrid color combo. thank god he didnt pay any money for it.

Gwok

Ummmmm..... WOW! on the color choice.

zarzamora_hermosa

Yeah, it sure is ugly... but congratulations on the win man:)

thegrouch

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.

Blue Storm

not my choice in colors but hey congrats to the winners

spyda80

That's the reason I think that someone would do this to a 8900.

dwp1975

I died alittle inside when i saw this...lol

privax

you KILLED that 8900. that color scheme is FUGLY. omg.

inc188

sorry

thats FUgly...

my 0.2

booman23

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

bgwavrder

At least the back looks good

ilovemileyyy

holy shit that's the ugliest thing i've ever seen.

cowboys2000

Congrats on the win and very unuque color combo!

Nick792

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?

JReel

interesting color choices

mookish

Looks like an old car with mis-match junkyard parts.

Outatime97

That is the first thing I thought...Spare parts!

littleinkblots

congrats on the win!! you like it and thats all that matters!!!!!

imoklo38

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

matt_litwin

Does anyone know of any Canadian companies that customize BB's?

sdlphotography07

I just don't understand how these colors could have made it onto a phone...together....

neevz

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...)

brodcaster

nonetheless,

if it makes you happy Nick, happy for you I am.

(still wishing I won that 8900)

Happy BB!!

rmstudio

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!

cpuking2009

im not even going to say whats been said. i would have done a Detroit Pistons theme on it myself any ways. congrads

Pant85

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.

Stormy Daze

it does the phone no justice choosing those colors (bad move)

chris pens

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

shannonmarti

Its so ugly I love it! Ill take 10!

BB Gooch

man you had the opportunity of a lifetime and you blew it with this color scheme

StarryHeart

Did he know that they let you see what the finished product looks like on the site? It could have been avoided.
