CrackBerry Contest: Win an IOU for a BlackBerry Bold 9900 or 9930!!!



Bold: awesome
Bold with Touch: Epic

and i'm from switzerland so if i wait for official release i have to wait another 4-6 month's :(

Can't wait for the form factor of the 9000 with all the new technology in the 9900 plus touch screen!

Awesome, I need this phonem it looks perfect with the speed of the processor, memory, cameram OS7. looks wonderful

i love its sleek design, and it's the thinnest blackberry yet
also i love the OS 7 look on it
what i love the most is the HD video recording since i am addicted to hd video
i would love it to be my next blackberry , it's perfect for me
will definitely be on top of my choices

Awesome!!! I would love this.

This Bold might be just the ticket to finally get my wife onboard with BB. I've been working on her for over 2 years. But the money and RIM's lineup have been an issue.

This contest solves both problems for me, great phone, and the price is right.

And then I can finally get her to BBM pictures of our new baby due in July to me while I'm at work. As first-time parents, this will be super exciting for us.

I've been waiting for this phone for a very long time. I have the original Bold 9000 that I bought in January of 09 and it's sooo beaten. I never once was convinced by the evolution of Bold. I'm glad they have moved back to the more traditional feel of the original 9000. I do plan on getting this phone regardless of winning or not.

It would be very pleasing to retire the original for a proper replacement.

Finally they officially announced it!!! Hopefully they release it soon because I need to have this!!! Love my BB 9780 but this will finally be a nice upgrade in the Bold editions!!!

me please.
i've always loved the b9000 form factor coupled with a touch screen make this a must have device. can't wait....

I can't wait to get this of both worlds!! Finally a phone with a keyboard and touch screen combo that make sense.

I'm so excited that the bold 9900 implements new hardware while remains the classic elements of bold 9000's keyboard and size. I can't wait to enjoy this BB.

I would love to win one of these to replace my Bold 9700. Although I love the 9700, I keep running out of memory, touch would be a great new feature and the thinness of the device looks amazing. Good luck everyone!

There's only one thing that everybody can love most : The ultimate combination of Touchscreen + Front-facing Kboard.

This will be my new BlackBerry, whether I win this challenge or not !!

Would be great to have a new BB that could touch screen and also FREE + 100$ BONUS from across the Continent (provided by crackberry) here in INDONEISA. This could also be a great story to my friends and families that i often encourage to use Blackberry device. ;p

Regardless of winning an IOU, an iPhone user since the first one, this phone will make me make the switch to a blackberry! Never though it would happen but I cannot wait until its announced for at&t. Anybody want an iPhone 4?

Was thinking about leaving blackberry but not anymore! Definitely getting this as soon as it comes out!

I am very very excited about this device.. I work for t-mobile and instead of me having to buy one.. I would love to win one from my favorite blog site ever.. Go I am here all day every day keeping up with the lastest blackberry news.. I have been a blackberry fan since 2007 been using blackberry's ever since I am currently in a curve 3G! Help a sista out Kevin.. Lol!! <3

I still love my torch but miss my old bold 9000 loss in a toilet drop. This would be a great mate for my playbook. Good luck to all.

Looks like torch in the concept, touch + qwerty but no sliding thats make this bold very special..
i can typing with comfort because its just the same with onyx or another bold..
absolutely love it!! :)

I Hope become first indonesian cb contest winner. Thanks cb i love 9000 style and now 9900 come with awesome new os 7 and thin design.

Although i am enjoying my current torch, the keyboard is just too small. I miss my old Bold 9000 and would love to have this phone.

I would absolutely love to win the new BlackBerry Bold, my 9780 is starting to feel lonely and it would want nothing more than a brand-new brother or sister!

Ok here's the deal, I NEED this phone, because now that I have the Playbook, I just can't get used to using a BB that does not have a touch screen!!!!!!

I miss my 9000 so very very much. Not the guts, but the form factor. I would loooooooove to get it back. Sliding the torch is a pain.

I want to win because this is the perfect Blackberry! Bold 9000 keyboard plus touchscreen...what could be better?

Pick me!

I've wanted this kind of bold since they changed the 9000 body to the 9700 style. Would be super excited to win this baby!

Is it June/July yet? i need this phone. the best of all phone worlds! touch screen, bb keyboard and all the little features that put this phone on the top of the smartphone pyramid.

Gotta have it. To win one would be grand indeed!!

Please pick me. It is finally here. Love the form factor, with keyboard and touch screen. I have been a BB fan for years and this is the best RIM has ever delivered. As well Crackberry is awesome.

Thanks for another great contest Kevin :)

Loving everything about the 9900... especially if it's free! ;)

I love my 8900 but I am drooling at the thought of this BBBold combo touchy screen and qwerty I hope I win because I am loving the Bold look! thanks

Honestly I'm loving everything about the phone. Especially the thin, sleek design and that frickin' majestic keyboard. We all knew it was coming, but awesome announcement. I am very anxious to get my hands on this fun and powerful tool! :)

Man I would LOVE to win the 9930. My favorite feature is the fact that it is an evolution of the Bold 9000 form factor. By far that's my favorite BB style, and I LOVE the fact that RIM chose this style to evolve!

PICK ME please....I wanted a PB but no love; this would make up for it! I love BB and cant wait for this to be my next device...bbm is how me and my wife met and continue to foster our relationship today....pick me!!!!!

I'm actually torn between this and the monza. My only concern is if tmo/att goes through then my device will work on edge with att.

soooooo wanna get the new look and it's sooo sexy.....I'm getting so matter what!!!

I have the Bold 9000 and i love it. Loved how wide the keybord was since i have big hands. So glad to see them coming out with a touchscreen version. if there a contest i would like to win it would be this one

i'd love to win! these, to me, are truly the best bb's, combining the best keyboards with a touchscreen experience and a greatly improved OS!

I would love to have a new Bold. I have a playbook and I have just went all over Phoenix AZ looking for a Bold to use with my Playbook and every Verizon store, Walmart and little phone stores stopped carrying them, this sucks.

Hey whats up crackberry crew please choose me I want to win. I enter the contest and havent won a contest yet so please pick me thank you.

I neeeeeeeed this phone. I am currently on verizon wireless and I have the iphone. It was a huge mistake for me to leave my blackberry behind for the iphone. It is by far the worst phone I have ever owned. My battery dies in 3 hours and it has no spacious keyboard like the blackberry did. I owned the previous blackberry 9000 for att and it was the best blackberry ever, not to big or small and the keyboard was perfect. I need this phone now so I can say goodbye to apple and there crappy devices

i did not purchase a torch, just to wait for the new bold! and here it is! it would be sweet to win this baby! you guys are the flippin best!!! This phone is a must have!!! I admit I was on the fence about it at first but that's mainly because. My contract isn't up and I'd have to pay full price... The more I read about this phone the more pics I see and the more vids I see the more I want this! I was unable to experiance the Bold 9000 so I'm excited to see and hopefully use this much updated version. Please Please pick meee

I hope I win, but if not, can you at least take me to a grease monkey so I can at least get lubed up before you f**k me. Or at at least a little courtesy lick. How about a little courtesy lick next time you try to f**k me?

well, 1st i guess it is very hard to win this beautiful new Blackberry device, because a lot of people are trying to comment & write anything just to get it. But i do believe that the chance might happen once in life, if i win this Bold 9900 i will be the happier person in life. I would like to thanks crackberry in advance for all the cool features & updates give to us.
I would really like to see how the new device look like & i would also love to be the 1st one holding this is the MEA.

At last, the best replaced for a Bold 9000 (although I'm using a 9780 of course :P)
And I really need one before Kevin gets one!!!

The Bold finally made it way to touch screen!
This is like dream come true. my dream blackberry.
No slide, full keyboard, touch scree, hd video, fast os, big storage.
I definitely want to get my hands on this beauty.

Too bad I live on Bonaire. Which is going to be a long waiting. But If I do win this contest and get it shipped here. Crackberry I LOVE YOU 4EVER <3

Very very excited about this device! Having rocked a 9000 through its long life this would be my next choice! Thanks for the opportunity to win CrackBerry!

I've always been a fan of the BOLD! My first BB was the 9000 and it was love at first sight. I still got is difficult to let go of something you truly love. But I currently use a Torch which was a step in the right direction by RIM. The Torch is nothing like my old 9000. It definitely has plenty of room to enhance the touch technology. So back to the drawing board RIM. Anyhow, with significant improvements to the hardware and software on the 9900, OMG it will be the ultimate BB! I want to fall in love again...I WANT IT!

These devices bring together the best in design, function and latest OS 7. Something I would truly appreciate winning and using everyday.

totally would go great for Verizon!.. I love this phone because I miss having a touchscreen but can't seem to let go of having a Qwerty keyboard :p

I really digging the large keyboard from the 9000, the ppi of the screen, the touch screen and the slimmness. Can't wait.

The device looks amazing! Screen is beautiful and the addition of touch, this phone is gonna rock...... Hope i can get my hands on one

I loved the 9700 when it first came out...and now I'm loving the 9900! The perfect form factor, finally with a touch screen, HSPA+ support, gorgeous looks, accelerometer, magnitometer, high res, bigger screen, light weight, mobile hot spot, and yes....TMO is the first to announce they will be carrying it!


The touchscreen will be awesome. Please add me. Just want it to work with the ALLTEL. Blackberry is ALL i need.

This device seems like the best mix of my 3 previous BB's. It has the perfect form factor of my 9000 and touch like my 9520 and it seems as blazing fast as my 9700

This must be a killer phone, hit me up please :)

Just love it! The HW Spec is on pair with other vendors and new OS is nice, looking forwards to get one

I definitely want to this contest.
I have been patiently waiting for this for a long time.
I love the new Bold 9900 because it combines touch screen with keyboard without the slide.

Wow, a lot of important news today... Bin Laden was killed and RIM announced the new Bold Touch!

I LOVE my Bold 9000... the best BlackBerry ever IMHO... but I'd like more memory, a refreshed OS... and, why not, a touchscreen for better web browsing!

This Bold Touch is gonna be the definitive smartphone!!!!

this is the best BB phone ever, HSPA , better browser, touch screen with keyboard, 8GB internal memory and 1.2G speed , I am sold. I would love to get my hands on this beauty

touchscreen? OS7? beautiful keyboard? oh the possibilities!
and i just gave up my wacky 9700 for an android phone, literally this weekend... (i just HAD to get the new sidekick.)
i would DEF venture back to the BB with this glorious phone!

Wow. A game changer for RIM. This will go a long way towards getting them back to the top of the Smartphone world. The form factor that they chose was always my fave and with the improved specs that it totes. This will be the next one for sure.

I always find myself touching the screen on my 9650 to move something or scroll, so this would do the trick! Finally a really great Blackberry! Crackberry is awesome letting it's readers win one.

I have never owned a Bold 9000 so I would love to join my BlackBerry bretheren in using that awesome keyboard in the updated Bold 9900!!

This is the perfect phone. The only thing that would make it better would be to say that I won it from the one and only Crackberry

I would loveeee to win this device. It has everything that I've ever hoped for in a Blackberry. It has the great form factor from the 9000. It has a larger screen than my 9700. It has a touch screen and all the benefits that go along with that...and yet it still has a physical keyboard for easy typing. Not to mention the guts of this phone kick butt! I would love to win one of these guys!!

I just moved from an iPhone 4 to a BlackBerry Torch earlier this year, and I have become a BlackBerry lover for sure! I went with Torch because, coming from an iPhone, I didn't want to miss having a nice-sized screen. However, I did shortly lug around both my iPhone 4 and a BlackBerry Curve 8520 whilst I evaluated the BlackBerry platform, and the one thing I miss about the Curve was the "always there" keyboard... I'm not a huge fan of the slider, and I've been looking forward t this BEAUTIFUL touch-screen Bold since it's been leaked! This is DEFINITELY the phone I want...! :D

Very nice Bold.
Perfect upgrade to a 9780. OS7(old OS6) with touch seems to be the perfect Bold. :-) This OS want to be touched!

I can't wait to get my hands on the beautiful new bold! It is the best of all worlds, a great qwerty and touch screen. I hope I win!

Rarely do I comment on the giveaway posts but this opportunity I could not pass up. I want the new 9900 Bold because it is the ultimate Blackberry. It's hard to pick and choose what I like best about it, because it simply is everything I could want, no less and no more. One way or another, this is becoming my next device.

Well... Registered on CB today, and the 9900/9300 show up! will i be the lucky one? Looking forward to it.

Like my daughter would say, "I want it pweeease!" OS7 looks great and would go great with my awesome playbook.

*@*@ PLEASE!!!! I would love to win this fine speciman of a phone...this is THE Blackberry I have been waiting for:) It has everything I need (let's not forget WANT) in a phone!! Can't wait til it is in my hands:). Love you CRACKBERRY and RIM!!! (Just a little "crack" kissing there;) ) @*@*

Please, Dear Lord! I've been wanting this since I first got my 9700 and thought that it'd be so much better if you could touch the screen too! This is a serious phone my friends! Please let me win!
