One of the main reason I would buy a playbook is the integrated mail and calendar app that work with other providers than BB messenger.

Would love to get one :)

Thanks

love the new look, and thanks for The intergated email, facebook, twitter, linkedn features. The delivered on there word. this will be the year of Blackberry

The remote featuree issss amazinnggg!!! I showed my friend how to use ittt cause I don't have a playbook yet!! I'm loving ittt!!! Finally RIM is backk on trackk!! Excited for BB10 andd all the future developments!! #RIM4LIFE

The new os 2.0 features such as HID touchpad and keyboard on bb, all new blackberry bridge features and perfect size just made me feel silly for buying any other tablet but the playbook! If given a second chance, I would have gotten playbook instead, it can really be of good aid for both my work and home entertainment. As for crackberry, you guys did a wonderful job in unleashing the very full potential of each blackberry device. Crackberry could have been the marketing department for blackberry, no one does a better job. Thumbs up

Count me in please. I'm loving OS2.0 and I think a second PB is in order for the family.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Bought the BB Playbook last week trusting that the OS2 update would bring a lot more to the platform. Not disappointed. Loving the integrated email and social media.

I think the better question is what's not to like about the PB? I mean it reminds me of Peanut Butter... and I freaking love Peanut Butter!

Other than the obvious pim apps I'm really liking this new keyboard. Love how it brings up a little changes depending on what you are filling in. Ie the @ symbol on the main layout when filling out an email address. Awesome little goodies I wasn't expecting.

WOW I love this site and I love my playbook and OS 2 with the new look and emails and take it everywhere I go. Just wanted to say the I'm with blackberry for life keep up the great work.

Count me in!!! With OS 2.0 The BlackBerry PlayBook really is the ultimate tablet offering the best in portability, usability and rockabilly!!!!!!!! GO BB and go CB!!!!!!!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gave up my playbook to move to galaxy tab 7, but I actually like the playbook much more and would love to get playbook once again. Just user interface seemed smoother, but no apps. Now with the release of OS 2.0, things can change with apps.

This would be awesome! I'm currently loving OS 2.0 and would love to surprise my dad with a playbook for his birthday!

I just love everything about the PlayBok 2.0 and the completeness of the system. From the built-in Messenger to Bridge Remote, the PlayBook screams. This update will leave an impression and I cannot wait to see all the hidden updates I will find here in CrackBerry…

I have an ipad. I am itching for a playbook. I know, that goes against every thing in the whole world, but there must be a reason for it. Gimme one please!

I'm so loving that i cannot even use the os2 yet bc my wife has it!!! I need a new playbook for me since my 8 months pregnant wife took mine!!!!!

I love everything about the Playbook. it would be the perfect companion for my wife's Torch 9810. Even better with 2.0. Thanks for the chance to win.

It's great that RIM got native Email, Contacts, and Calender over to the PlayBook. Hopefully this is the push they need to finally show people how great the PlayBook really is and allow people to actually give it a change. This BlackBerry Bridge remote mouse is phenomenal as well, great addition.

I would love to win a PlayBook & $100.00 in accessories! I would just be on the forums THAT much more (:

Thanks so much CrackBerry.com, you're great!

I love it so much I want another playbook!!!! I'm totally addicted!!! I want to spread the addiction love to others when I win this playbook!!!! Love crackberry.com, most awesome users in the forums!!!! Please enhance my addiction!

I love crackberry I have been supporting crackberry for years and I happy to see the growth and success over the years, I will always be a major supporter. I would love a opportunity to receive a playbook, I haven't had much luck lately and times have been rough wining this I think will boost my moral and give me the confidence to get back on my feet. Good luck to everyone and once again congratulations crackberry on your growth and success.

I have a 64GB PlayBook and I absolutely love it! It and my Berry are my main computing devices. My only problem is that none of my close friends have one. It would be nice to be able to make use of the PB video chat. I would love to win a PlayBook so that I can give it to a friend so that we can chat. ☺

The update is impressive, although I haven't gotten the bridge remote working yet. Now my g/f and mom both want playbooks so it would be awesome to be able to win one for the. How in the heck would I decide who to give it to though????

I love Crackberry.com. It has been very helpful for me who has to support blackberries, playbook..etc. I can find answers to almost all problems RIM related. Thanks Crackberry and now..give me my playbook! Pretty please!! :)

a BlackBerry Playbook would definitely help me with my job. Besides that, Crackberry is my #1 source of BlackBerry news and info. Everytime I want to look for something about my BlackBerry, I go to google, type in my search and add crackberry behind it and I alway get an artikel from crackberry that helps me out. This site's just great!!!

Would be nice to get my hands on a playbook. Have been waiting to find out what was coming. Now its here I am kinda liking what I see

Kevin,

Loving the autocorrect and remote control among the obvious email/calendar and app enhancements. It now truly feels complete!

Keep up the great work!

I've loving the new keyboard on 2.0! We NEEEEEEEEEED BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) on the Playbook though!!! Since they all have unique PINS. NEXT UPDATE PLEASE!

Kevin,

Loving the autocorrect and remote control among the obvious email/calendar and app enhancements. It now truly feels complete!

Keep up the great work!

Would love to get one for my wife. She keeps trying to take mine. A man needs his own Playbook!!!!!!

Sweeettt.. thanks for the chance at a PB CB! would love one of these, 2.0 is where its at! goodluck to all. most looking forward to the native email integration and well of course.. bridge!

The family needs 1 more Playbook so my daughter can video-chat with her husband when he deploys.

Sweeettt.. thanks for the chance at a PB CB! would love one of these, 2.0 is where its at! goodluck to all. most looking forward to the native email integration and well of course.. bridge!

Love blackberry, love 2.0 hope I win so my wife and I can video chat while I'm away. Thanks crackberry you are the best!

What I love about the Blackberry Playbook is that it will complete my blackberry experience

with OS 2.0 , it's now what it should have been when it first got out

Jingleberry and Android would make me an addict ! Finally it's an open OS like android which can be played with.

Liked PB before OS2 - and now its better than ever - and getting better all the time as the new apps arrive. I'm going broke buying PBs for my family to share the love ... I'd love to win one for my sister? Thanks ...

My wife thinks im crazy and may have a problem because i woke up this morning just to download 2.0 (i had the day off). If i win this playbook it will go directly to her and she will then understand my passion for blackberry. So far i am loving the remote feature on bb bridge (im using the 9810) as far as a big difference with the new OS it has to be the new predictive keyboard and the when the numbers get automatically added to the keyboard. O yah and the calender.

Brian

I love that Crackberry is the go to place for anything Blackberry. Bricked phone no prob, Accessories they got them. You just can't go wrong.

I enjoyed my playbook before the upgrade, but now I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I can't wait to show the Ipad and Samsung Galaxy users in my house just how awesome it is... The size and weight of the playbook along with all of the amazing upgrades and new apps coming soon makes it a hands down winner over other tablets in my opinion! Now if I had a second one to give my sister or mom so we could use the video chat (better than skype) I would be in heaven :-)

Awesome contest by the crackberry team.

Just in time for OS2.0!

Keep up the awesome work on reporting all things Blackberry!

Sweeettt.. thanks for the chance at a PB CB! would love one of these, 2.0 is where its at! goodluck to all. most looking forward to the native email integration and well of course.. bridge!

Oh god ! Would I love a Playbook ! My wife would be so happy .... She could definitely stop using mine ! :D

Please Crackberry choose This dude :)

I certainly like the polished feel; just seems very intuitive to me. Love that the WordPress App is there, the adaptive keyboard is a nice touch, although the keyboard changes depending on the screen you are on; not nice.

Would love to pick up another playbook so my wife and I can stop fighting about who gets stuck with the iPad!!!!

OS 2.0 is awesome! THANK YOU to everyone at Crackberry, Mods and Users, for the "OS 2.0 Reporting and Chatter! " Sticky...It's cleared up a lot of questions!

i love the look of the blackberry playbook and i would love to win a playbook playbook and the qnx looks fabulous and exciting

Love blackberry, love 2.0 hope I win so my wife and I can video chat while I'm away. Thanks crackberry you are the best!

I already got a playbook and I bought several Blackberry accessories from this very site! A second would be swell as a gift to my sister :)

Love blackberry, love 2.0 hope I win so my wife and I can video chat while I'm away. Thanks crackberry you are the best!

Love blackberry, love 2.0 hope I win so my wife and I can video chat while I'm away. Thanks crackberry you are the best!

Choose me!! My life would be complete with a new Playbook!!!!

It's gotten to the point that I'd rather buy a Playbook than pay for my student loans....lol

I have read a lot about BB Playbook and ordered one for my own. But my wife have read a lot of this device too and want it too. I love my wife very much, but playbook is so cool... Save me, give playbook to my wife! Wait... I have a son... He is only 1.5 years old, but he likes to watch cartoons. Can I have two playbooks please? ^)

Love blackberry, love 2.0 hope I win so my wife and I can video chat while I'm away. Thanks crackberry you are the best!

I love EVERYTHING ABOUT the PlayBook, OS 2.0 or CrackBerry! Can't live w/o it. I really hope I win a PB so I can give my hubby, he's all over mines.

Wow GREAT event! I love the BB PLAYBOOK. It is just the most awesome tablet I've ever seen. Entering the contest so I could get my hands on that Nuclear bomb of a tablet, instead of watching Youtube videos and craving for it!

One for me and one for...me so that I can finally enjoy the use of android apps. expanded app catalog will be so useful!

OS2 is freaking sweet!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the native messages system!!! Hook a brother up with a new PB!!!!!

I love all the contests and giveaways Crackberry does :-)
Of course all the news and exclusives too
Now pick me and send me that playbook. I would love to check it out.
Thank you!!!!!

It's Finally here! 2.0 where have you been all my life! Thank you Crackberry for the awesome posts! Keep the love coming!

I love everything about my Playbook. OS 2.0 just makes it that much better. Video, email chat and the fastest mobile browser that I have seen. This is a great device...It's totally Bold..

I love the new Playbook functionality and if I win will use it with an OS 7.1 phone. I'm gonna keep the phone for awhile, so a combo of the phone and Playbook will help squelch my desire for the Blackberry 10 (or, maybe, 11) phones until I can get one a year or so after they hit.

It's great that CrackBerry hosts these awesome contests, but I love most about CB is coming here to browse the awesome forum. :)

It's got to be the all in one place for emails and social networking its smooth and we'll thought out. Well done rim

I would love to get my hand on this playbook because here in South Africa,it is rare and it would be nice to show people what the playbook can do.Playbook 2.0 is Magic 2.0....Absolute Magic.

The list is growing fast. Good indication of the true desire of many that do believe the PB is the sleeping "Giant" of all others. I bet many that have entered the contest already own other tablets, but deep down and secretly, really want a Blackberry PB.
I haven't made a purchase yet but when I do it will be a Blackberry PB, without a doubt. Unless, of course, I would be fortunate enough to win one. Grateful would be an understatement for me. Looking forward to seeing the happiness of the winners of the contest,
Regards and good luck to all,
Ken

I just recently returned to the blackberry fold after going to the apple realm. I must say that I am truly appalled by how bad Blackberry publicity has been. I have been trying to buy a playbook recently with no luck. Every retail location I go to has a rundown display or no display model at all and when they do they don't have any in stock. I know I can order one but I want to give it a run through before I buy.
I would love to win this playbook.

Charles

I love blackberry and Crackberry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

O.S 2.0 FTMFW!!!!! need this to bridge with my 9930 on my grandfathered $40 sero premium sprint unlimited plan for some totally convenient and productive lifestyle made only by the Blackberry Playbook!

I really love the fact that CrackBerry.com has regular give-aways and provides a great community for discussion regarding BlackBerry Devices. I absolutely love the PlayBook and would love to win one!

I'd love to get my hand on a playbook... I just haven't been able to justify pulling the trigger just yet. Maybe I'll win one instead? :)

The Tight integration of SOcial media (linkedin, twitter etc) into my email calender and contacts is just epic! Also adding to that bb remote on my 9900 and unlimited data and I'm in heaven :)

lil john says: "Whhhhhaaaaaattt, a Playbook????

and then gives the: "Oooooo-Kaaaaaaaay!!"

I'm in! :-D

thanks for the chance CB!

I love the Playbook, wish I had one. Can I get one please... specially after the release of OS 2.0, there is no turning back...

I would love a Playbook. I've been coming to Crackberry for a few years now so I think it's time I win something, don't you?

This would be Awesome.......i would love to get a playbook......I love crackberry because it's everything I need......BEST SITE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, thank crackberry bringing the lastest news about BB&PB to me. I love the function of remote control and the email&contacts app, and most of the android apps that sideloaded to playbook can connect to the internet via bridge, and that's great because I am using the unlimited BIS data plan, sounds so awesome, right?

This would be sweet! I would love to have a second Playbook for my wife and share in all the great features of OS 2.0! Count me in! Here's hoping! Good luck everyone!

Love the Playbook! I convinced my boss to buy one when they were realeased last year, I knew that these would be one of the best tablets for what I do. Thanks for OS2.0!

Haven't had a chance to experience the Playbook, but everyone I know is singing their praises.

I love my Bold 9700, so naturally I expect to love the Playbook!

Ive been a early adopter and lived and fought for this tablet from the start, and now its starting to make a comeback, Gor RIM Go!
But more importantly Go Crackberry Go! for supporting us users better than any company is or can.

CrackBerry always has the best contests, you all rock! I want to win just to share the awesome PlayBook love with my family. One thing that I like about OS 2.0 right now is how detailed my contacts have become. I never used to put much info in my phone book, but with it puling data from all of my social networks I have a strong phone book, with lots of info.

This would be an amazing contest to win.

Crackberry is always on point when it comes to the latest news, updates, releases and the forums are great for trouble shooting or advice!

A BIG THANK YOU! For keeping the BB addicts informed and up to date! Keep up the great work!

B

Count me in! I don't own a playbook, would love one. :D
Also, crackberry is awesome and of great help! Kudos for developing such a platform. :)

I would love to win one that way I could give it to my son and we would be able to video chat while he stays at his moms 6 hrs away

Playbook is the ultimate in portability. Now with OS2 it is beyond killer.

I'd love another Playbook so my husband can have his own and stop stealing mine. :)

Pick me please..! The new OS looks great, especially the bridge functionality but I believe there is still plenty of room for improvements...

im really loving the new os2 its awesome...and i love brackberry as well cuz its the best place to meet new ppl who also love the playbook

Thanks, I wouldn't have known my Blackberry even wanted a Playbook if it weren't for CrackBerry. If I could win one for his birthday, he'd be so happy.

Everyone but me hates BlackBerry at my work. I'm the only one who thinks that the PlayBook has a future. I need to be able to prove them all wrong. I need to be able to show them the full power of this fully operational battle station.....er umm tablet! Thanks!

Long live teh Rimpire!

Oh and not that long ago I was nearly fired because of my defense of blackberry products.

I'm very impressed with the new update, everything seems to run much more smooth, and the tablet experience is just fantastic.

I want to give one for my little nephew so he can do all his school stuff and stop borrowing mine

Dear mr Blackberry, i am confused, i am lost, don't know what to do, but i do know that if you come my way, you make me whole again....
Ohhh Blackberry Playbook, you complete me!

Lovelovelove my Playbook new look thanks to OS2. Also love how much easier it is to use and organize. Perfect Day for OS2 release - Mardin Gras because there's a party on my Playbook!!!!!!

Print to go is the most useless application that is the complete opposite to what users actually wanted!!

The Playbook now sounds like a pretty good device! It would be nice to replace my Android tablet with this one!

I don't have a PB yet, but would love one!
Proud owner of a 9930 and a daily reader of CB!
I couldn't enjoy my 9930 without CB forums! Now maybe
I'll get a PB with 2.0 to enjoy it even more!

Hands down the Email client!!! WOW!! Talk about having it all in one place!! I haven't even scratched the surface of how amazing everything is running! WAY excited!! I wanna get my son a PlayBook for school!!! LOVE IT!!! Thank you Kevin & the rest of the CB Team for all your hard work!

Would love to get me hands on another PlayBook! Wife has been itching for one ever since I got mine two weeks ago...and she can't have mine!!! :)

Set a record for most people logged in at once and now you might set a record for most comments to a blog post after this contest!!

Right now I'm at work so I can't download OS2 and it's driving me crazy!!! Now with thew new features available I really want to get my brother and sis in law a playbook. They're in Tucson and are about to start trying for a baby. When the lil one comes I would LOVE a portable way to video chat with them!!!
