BlackBerry PlayBook IOU CrackBerry

What birthday celebration would be complete without a grand prize? The pièce de résistance?!? Well we have just that - a BlackBerry PlayBook!! Ok, well maybe we don't actually have a BlackBerry PlayBook, but we're still giving one away! In continuing the celebration of our 4th birthday, we're giving away an IOU for one BlackBerry PlayBook. Whenever RIM gets it together and releases it (early April-ish?), we'll send you one right out of the gate.

Enter Contest: Leave a single comment on this post to enter to win an IOU for a BlackBerry PlayBook. Contest ends Sunday March 12th at midnight PST. Good luck!

CrackBerry Birthday Contest: Win an IOU for a BlackBerry PlayBook!



I'll most likely be getting one one way or the other, but a free one would be awesome! It would free me up to snag one of RIM's new phones off contract. The rumors I hear about the new phones coming out this year sound delicious!

YES!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this since day one. Can NOT STAND APPLE PRODUCTS! BB/RIM all the way.

You can't win if you don't PlayBook... Count me in. Could I win one over the rest of the Nation??? Doubtful, but I'm rather optimistic.

Happy Birthday and a sincere congratulations on your success Kevin. =)

Wow, crackberry runs the BEST contests. Although I have been primarily using an android device for the past few months (couldnt take the storm any more) I have been anxiously waiting for something awesome from rim to come back to the platform. This is it! And If I win, crackberry will be my first bookmark!

We have been debating a PlayBook and looking forward to seeing it when it is released - this would make the debate a lot easier... :)

one of these would make a beautiful addition to my electronics collection! (which is too sparse right now)

Happy Birthday 4th Birthday Crackberry!!! Although it is your birthday please give me the present of a Playbook!!

I have a slightly better change to win since I am now leaving a post. It isn't a good chance but it is better then no chance. Please, I want a playbook!

I would LOVE to win an IOU for a Playbook!! Especially considering that there is a rumored release date of April 10th and MY birthday is April 17th, so that would allow for shipping to time the delivery right on or around my birthday!! What an Awesome Birthday gift this would be from CrackBerry as they celebrate THEIR OWN birthday this week!! Hope I win.....

I REALLY hope I win......that would be such an AWESOME birthday present.......

I want one! No, I really want one!

This might be the all-time most commented post! Can't wait to see! Last I saw the 3 blackberry giveaway was almost at 5,000 comments! Whoa!


WOW!!! What a great way to celebrate, got my fingers crossed...either way, I'll be getting one as soon as they are available.

Would love to get my hands on the Playbook. Been anticipating it every since I first heard about it. Actually just finished talking with my coworkers about it this morning. I would love to win it!

I greatly appreciate this opportunity and would be even more appreciative if I am slected to received the PlayBook. Thank you.

Well, it looks like the PlayBook will be launching a little after my birthday (April 2nd) but it'd sure be a cool belated birthday gift! Thank you CrackBerry for always being there to fill my CrackBerry addiction needs! I look forward to many more years of CrackBerrying!

PlayBook for me!! I've been reading all the blog posts and listening to every podcast about the PlayBook and everything else!

I would love to get one of these! The playbook seems like it will be of much better use to me than the iPad.

Well this year has been an IOU failure for me.
1. My GF - "iOU a bday prezzie" - Nothing!
2. My GF - "iOU a Valentines day prezzie" - Nothing!
3. My Boss - "iOU a salary raise for ur hard work" - Ha still waiting!
4. My Bro - "iOU for cracking ur laptop screen" - Yeah rite, prob when pigs fly!
5. My Frez - "iOU bailing me out at midnight on a sunday" - Psssh ha jus like the last time Nothing!

And all this has been this year alone!

So plz Crackberry iOU (me) ;) a playbook and come thru for me!!!

Baie Dankie

Hopefully the Playbook will be released before Playbook2 ..... just kidding but I don't think I can wait too much longer.

Ok Crackberry, after all of the gifts that you provide to everyone. Now this... man! Just remember that I have tigersblood and I will need that IOU Playbook.

CRACKBERRY.. have i ever told you how beautiful and smart and stylish and amzing you are...??? PLEASE PICK ME!

I want this soooo bad! I've never won anything, well maybe 1 unlock code.. but I have a feeling I will win a PlayBook!! PLEASE!

Why hello there I will trade you 1 (one) comment for 1 (one) BlackBerry PlayBook IOU. Also known as a UOME :-)

Thank you and have a wonderful day :-P

Happy Birthday Crackberry!
I refused to buy an ipad, got a galaxy tab as a gift, gave it back, now the waiting is almost over...
I'm gonna get my PlayBook !!

First things first, Happy Birthday CrackBerry! I've been a member since 2009 and in the last 2 years, I have learned a lot from your site! You have always been my #1 used bookmark in my BlackBerry's Browser :). I visit this site everyday, multiple times and if it wasn't for CB, I probably wouldn't have known what to do in some situations! I gotta give out a lot of respect to the CB members too! Plus, I've learned about a lot of the apps I use from this site!

As for a BlackBerry PlayBook, I want one! I mean seriously, who doesn't! I've been following the PlayBook coverage here on CB and it looks sick! Purchasing a PB myself may not be a realistic option anytime soon but winning one on CrackBerry potentially is an option so definitely count me in for an IOU! Thank you CB for being the best one stop shop for all my BlackBerry needs! I appreciate you! ;)

Every one is stuck on andriod but do they know info is stolen in most cases on blackberry you have total privacy even if the playbook runs andriod apps you will have blackberry security which is the best hell with apple you never own anything

Oh, my. I want this so bad. but I can't figure out a way to justify purchasing one with the wife. Especially because we have our first baby on the way and we need to pick up the pace on getting to a bigger house that will allow us to squeeze all three of us in there.

I keep trying to play up the idea of surfing and playing while holding a sleeping baby or how easy it will be to share pictures and videos of the baby using a playbook. So far I don't have her convinced and the battle isn't looking to be in my favor.

But if I were to win one, however.... Oh, how grand that would be.

I'd even consider putting Kevin in the top five boy names list.

happy birthday crackberry! it would be so great to get that playbook. i already got to play with one and thats all i dream about now

As they say you have to be in it to win it. Here's crossing all my fingers and toes and any other appendage which is crossable.

This is awesome crackberry, you guys are freaking amazing for always giving away such neat stuff. Happy birthday by the way :3

Good luck everyone and congrats to the extremely lucky winner!! :)

Happy Birthday! Only site that I visit on almost a daily basis. Would love to win the Playbook. It would help with my job tremendously.

I Owe You Crackberry a BIG Thanks for all the great information you provide and keeping us all Blackberry fans abreast of all the latest development in the Blackberry World!
And now You Owe Me one Blackberry Playbook for posting this comment!!! :)

All my friends have iPads, so I need to win, so I can run over to them and say "I just won a BlackBerry PlayBook, and I didn't pay a dime for it. So F*** you and your apple products."

And because I'm from "Make a Guy Happy Foundation" and this is my last wish to win a PlayBook. So you have to let me win.
