Win a ColorWare BlackBerry!

ColorWare has been helping us celebrate our birthdays since we turned one year old, so there's so way we'd turn four years out without giving CrackBerry readers yet another chance to win a custom painted BlackBerry. Courtesy of ColorWare, this year the lucky winner will get a brand new BlackBerry Torch 9800, Pearl 3G or Bold 9780 with their choice of color scheme. Let me say that again... you get to choose the device AND the custom color scheme. Want to go patriotic with a red, white and blue Bold 9780? How about a CrackBerry orange Torch 9800? You can choose whatever you want - the design is totally up to you! Be sure to follow the link at the bottom of this post to jump over to ColorWare's site where you can test the color options in their Design Studio.

Contest Details: To enter to win, just leave a single comment on this post telling us what color scheme and device you'd choose. Contest ends this Sunday March 13th at midnight PST. Good luck!!

Good lord you guys have been having some great contests lately! A new and shiny Torch would be wonderful! :)

Well since purple has recently become my new fave color, and coloware has always had some sweet purple color options, I would most definitely go with a purple and grey and black color screen.!

I have been converted to the way of the Blackberry but I can't afford one. I would love a new Bold 9780 with a red and gray/carbon fiber paint job!

I'll take the 9780
Frame: Carbon black gloss.
Top Steel gloss
Bottom Jet black gloss
Inner back: steel gloss
Outer back: canady apple gloss
Logo: carbon black sof touch black.
The parts would be 171

Torch 9800 with Solid Yellow and Bit Lighter Solid Yellow..tried it on Colorware looked awesome..eye catching stuff..

Sign me up for the chance to win a colorware smartphone! They look awesome! Definately the torch has the best overall look!

Oh heck yes! With great contests come great number of comments, which unfortunately lessens my chances of winning...

9780 please!

Frame = Jet-Black Gloss
Top = Jet-Black Gloss
Bottom = Jet-Black Gloss
Inner Back = Jet-Black Gloss
Outer Back = Jet-Black Gloss
