CrackBerry Poll: What accessories are you going to buy for your BlackBerry PlayBook?

BlackBerry PlayBook Accessories
By Kevin Michaluk on 24 Feb 2011 12:21 pm EST

Contest: Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win a FREE BlackBerry PlayBook Accessory of your Choice!

Ten days ago we saw some slides leak out that showed the names and suggested pricing of cases and other accessories for the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook. Things have been making progress since then as our e-commerce team has begun receiving their ordering info for getting BlackBerry PlayBook accessories in stock. With the demand for the BlackBerry PlayBook and accessories looking to be pretty huge, you'll want to keep your eyes glued to ShopCrackBerry as we start getting more and more PlayBook-specific accessories into the store and make them available for pre-order. Pre-ordering will put you at the front of the line so that when items arrive in stock and we start shipping that you'll be the first to receive them. And with free shipping on orders of $50 or more (Continental US) and pricing below MSRP, it makes sense to order online in advance vs. buying in store when you pick up your PlayBook.

PlayBook Accessories Poll: With the PlayBook being an all new genre of BlackBerry device, we're curious to see what accessories are going to be your must-haves. A case for protection? A bluetooth keyboard for easy typing? A charging dock? Something else? Vote on the poll above and let us know in the comments.

PlayBook Accessory Contest: Drop a comment to this post letting us know what PlayBook-specific accessory you want (based on the ones we already have in store available for pre-order) and you can win it! Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. 

New BlackBerry PlayBook Accessories Available for Pre-Order

Browse all BlackBerry PlayBook Accessories



As many as I can afford! The case most likely.


I'm so excited for the release I can't wait and for sure a case is the first of many accessories that I will be buying!


I just want a release date at this point in time! I'm starting to get tired of waiting for this thing to come out....


I plan on getting one as soon as they come out on the market.


I really love BlackBerry Playbook! I wish it will be available in the Philippines soon!


OMG ! can't wait to hold the Skin Case for the BlackBerry PlayBook !!!


Going to get a case for sure... I have to protect my investment!


I will be getting a bluetooth keyboard for sure!!


For sure a case but which one. I NEED to get a playbook in my hands then decide which case looks and feels the best.


Really hope I get one of these, not sure yet, waiting on work to let me know if I am getting one or not. If not I will have to convince my wife that we have to have one.


How about some reasonable shipping to places OTHER than the continental US? I'd buy more from Shop Crackberry, but the shipping is almost always the same price as anything I'd buy.


oh man that OtterBox Case for BlackBerry PlayBook looks SWEET! or that skin case or charger stand! dibs on all , thanks!


oh my... I could give a good use to that in a near future!


Without a doubt first thing would be a case. Need to keep it safe. Simple as that really.


I'd trade my girlfriend of 3 years TODAY for a Playbook.......Yes, it's that serious.

With that said, OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry cuz I know she's gonna try to break it once i get it


my comment is:
I wish the Pre-Order Images actually linked to the pre-order and not just the home page =D


Can't wait for this bad boy!


Definitely a nice skin case!


what about the canadian crackberry store?


that otterbox defender case looks pretty awesome


BT Keyboard would be neat!


The Defender case would be great!


i am totally buying an awesome bright orange case for my new awesome playbook the second i get it!! :D


definately the BT keyboard...and a case.


I'll be getting the works! :)


Nice black leather case for me! Looks great - just need a release date!


I'm gonna be all over that skin case! Would love to win one for free! :)


Sweet, I would love a OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry PlayBook


I'm gunna need a screen protector and body armor. Its gunna be in my truck but the little bit I'm gunna need to use it as a presenter its going to need some added durability. Even though I hope it doesn't happen it maybe dropped so I need some of the fall shock absobed.


Would love the otterbox defender case :)



I would get a case and screen protector


Not one of them, I am not getting the Playbook. Sorry to be a pill, it answers a question I have never asked. Everybody else, enjoy it.

BTW, what do you all do to be able to spring for such a thing and all the toys? As far as I can tell, the economy is in the toilet.


Definitely going with the Otterbox Defender Case...great product.


All of the Above! But if i had to choose an order:
1.) Defender Case
2.) Keyboard
3.) Rapid Charge Stand
4.) Car Dash Mount

Didn't See ON CB, but would need:
5.) HDMI out cable


Would take a keyboard over anything else.

I hope someone makes a mouse for the PlayBook, to make using the PlayBook (while in a stand) seem just like a computer. The mouse would put a pointer on the screen and would have two buttons--the left would act just like your finger touching the screen and the right would open menus. A bluetooth keyboard could have a slide-out touchpad, like a laptop. I'm sure these will all be options. I haven't even browsed the accessories yet. May even have this already.


I'd like the charging stand. I'll get a case too but with so many to choose from I'd like to choose that for myself.

I have to say..... hmmmm... do you know when you are getting these accessories??? Do you know something about the Playbook release date that you are not telling us??? :D


i would love a blue tooth keyboard.... hate touch screen ones x.x

Red Rooster

The charging stand and a case for sure.


Already ordered a case from even though there's no release date in the UK yet :)


Rapid Charging station!


I will be getting a charging cradle and envelope case for sure for my BlackBerry PlayBook


Gotta get the case with the multi positions!


Rapid Charging Station!

or the Case with the Multi-Positions!


ah id love this as a new toy to play with and test out!


The OtterBox Case for the playbook appears to be the case of choice


I really want that otterbox!


I'll be getting a case and charging stand ASAP!


The Otterbox Defender case is what I'll be getting first for ultimate protection!


right now I would buy anything for my playbook........altho first would be a charging stand then a case


Count me in for this i'll be needing it


Definately need an otterbox case. 4 kids all under six. The last thing I want is to have waited for so long and have them use it as a placemat for snacks. I love em' but this is a playbook. Hopefully we can enjoy it together for a long time.


Really looking forward to the rapid charging stand!


I would definitely buy a case first. The rapid charger and bluetooth keyboard I don't think are as important.

Having had a little experience with the iPad, a stand with external speakers for the Playbook is a must particularly if you are watching video or other programming.


The Otterbox Defender FO SHO!


I'd love a case for it. Big trip from Florida to S. Africa coming up in september, So i plan on having it ready to go with apps and all by then...


I can't wait for this sick tablet to come out.


I want that rapid charging stand. I'm sure I'll be draining that battery super fast with all the plying I'll be doing.


A case or skin and charging stand for me.


First the case, then everything else!


The OtterBox case would be my first choice!!


I'm absolutely going to buy an Otterbox Defender case for my Playbook. That is, if I don't win one! :D


I can't wait to get a case and an extra charger for it so I can use it at work! I cannot wait for the playbook to come out!

The Consigliere

It's a tie between a case/screen cover & charging stand, you'd think by now a charging stand would come default though.


I'd love one of the rapid charging stands - Waiting on one of the Hard Shells as seen at the CES Booth


Sign me up! I would definitly love the Otterbox case for my new BB Playbook that I am going to buy on release day!!!!


My choice would have to be the OtterBox case


I would buy an Otterbox case and a mini HDMI cable.


The Otterbox Defender Series Case looks out of this world! That is what I want...Looks like the ultimate protection kit for the Playbook and it is a must have for all Playbook users. You know where you first saw it...big up Crackberry!!! Another job well done!


I would eventually get at least a case and/or skin, rapid charging pod, keyboard, and a few charging adapters for home/office/car use. But I just need the dang thing to be announced and get in my HANDS ASAP!!!!!!


I like the Otterbox Case.


I love OtterBox anything, but this is really cool....


Definitely the Zip Sleeve!


I like the look of the Otterbox case. With their known performance, I would expect it to protect my PB from any harm.


I'd want the blackberry playbook zip sleave, cant wait for this to get released!


I will get the case first, especially one which can let you stand it at an angle. Must be sturdy enough so you can type while standing at angel.


OtterBox case please! C'mon RIM, set a release date already!


I would love the charging stand, but case has to be the first purchase! I can't imagine stuffing my PlayBook in my bag without a case!


I'm not too concerned about the accessories, I just want a darned Playbook!


I think all you need is a case. You can (hopefully) use your BB as the keyboard and I wont be using it as an alarm clock so a charging dock isn't really needed.


The Convertible Case! Great for my note taking!


I think a book style case would be an awesome accessory.


I don't see the accessories on the CrackBerry store yet - but regardless, I definitely will be picking up a leather envelope case and the rapid charge/presentation stand!!!


Rapid Charging Stand and the Bluetooth Keyboard


First accessory I am going to buy will be a case because I don't want to damage my lovely new playbook, when I it comes out.


The Case with multi-positions, and for sure the bluetooth keyboard for college!!!!

I plan on getting a playbook as soon as they come out on the market!!!


I'm getting a Otterbox defender. I use them on all my phones and I'm sure the PB model will work as great as all the others have.

Jimberry Storm

My luck says I will win this contest cause can't afford a playbook at this time...Ha!


OtterBox Defender looks sick, I will need it.
Thanks CB


I have been waiting for this for so long. Can't wait to get one in my hands. Of course will need the Rapid Charging Stand.


Mamma needs a playbook!


I'm going to need a PlayBook Accessory.


I would love an invisible case for my invisible Playbook!!


I would love a BB Playbook! It's way better than the iPad!


I can not express how excited i am about the playbook coming out, since i am with sprint i will just have to bear the wait til summer and get the 4G version
accessory need and must have will be the charging stand, that way i can put "bedside" and have a nice alarm clock, radio, or video player by my side and all my blackberry info at the touch of a button, whether i win or not is moot, but am so excited about the playbook and all that it can do right out of the box


Gotta protect it. I'm getting the case


Most definitely the Otterbox case!


I will love to have the otterbox defender series case :)


These accessories look great! I voted for the Rapid Charging Stand. Mostly because I am impatient. Going nut's just waiting for the PB!!!
My friend works for QNX. Really excited for this!


in it to win it! hopefully :/


i would get it all.. never had got a ipad.. this would blow it away! thanks for the chance


I'd get all of the essentials but instead of the otterbox, i'd get a leather case...looks more professional even though i'd be using it more for play than work.


the day it's available for LTE i'll grab one, plus the charging station, and maybe an otter box product. they make the best protectve cases for blackberry's anyways., hook a fellow crackberrian enthusiast up!


I'd love for this tablet to work with a BT mouse. I already have a keyboard.. and a mouse would just make this epic! Add flash to the equation and a dose of Android apps.. what's the point of getting an android device?


Gotta get that suction cup for the front car windshield, Maps of course never would I video skype and drive.


Can't wait for a release date. Come on RIM!!


I'm gonna spoil my Playbook like I do my Torch


RAPID CHARGER STAND! cant wait till the playbook it out im going to buy so many accessories ALLL FROM CRACKBERRY !


definitely the OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry PlayBook


I would get either the envelope case or rapid charging stand.


I would love to have the rapid charging stand!


I cannot wait for the Playbook. I know this is going to be the best tablet out there.


I would love a case for the playbook!! I would love a case with a playbook in it even more!!!!!


I think the OtterBox Defender Series Case would be the first accessory I'd buy!


This outterbox case for the playbook will come in handy. Great contest CB!


All of them! (if I can affored them) ... of course ... having the playbook sooner than later would help my cause!


I'd like the Plantronics BackBeat 903 Stereo Bluetooth Headset.


OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry PlayBook would be a great accessory to my Playbook. Thanks Crackberry. You ROCZ!!!


Definitely a Otterbox Defender!! Have one for my iPad & LOVE it!


What would be great is if they made a hybrid case with a keyboard that could be attached securely while still remaining removable. That would be amazing for me.


How about just getting us a release date Kevin. Why buy accessories with no release date in sight.


A skin for sure.. Cant scratch this bad boy up...


getting a case for sure. charging station would be a plus also.


Since I tend to drop my stuff, I'm going to need an otterbox case to protect my playbook.


Holy cow!!! That Otterbox Case is friggin' GREAT! It still keeps the PB as a nice and clean profile while providing all of that nice protection.

Yeah, put me down for an Otterbox Case please.

Thank you once again! =)


I want to see the Playbook soon! Oh, I would need a sleek case!


PlayBook accessories:
1. Rapid Charger Stand (for office) - this one is for the contest if I am chosen

Other options in priority order:
2. Convertible Case
3. Mini Bluetooth Keyboard
4. Rapid Charger Stand (2nd for home)

Of course this is all budget ($’s permitting) driven.


I know I'm getting the case, but that Bluetooth Keyboard would b sweet to have also.


Definitely the OtterBox Defender and the stand.

I hope the case doesn't make the dock a PIA like always!


The Otter Box Defender case!


Case for sure to start then all the other goodies to follow.


i want a coming out date and yes the case will do just fine


only a case, that's enough...or a big pair of blutooth ear phones :)


If the playbook ever gets released, I would love to have a case with the multi positions.


Just bought a Otter case for my 9650 and would gat the same for this.


Definitely the Otterbox defender case! But the charging stand looks nice too. Hmmmm. How bouts one of each!?


Its going to be awesome!!! Cant wait!!!


OtterBox Defender Series Case


Most likely all of them, although I'm not really a case kinda guy


i won't be purchasing any accessories because im convinced the playbook will never be released to the public. makes me sad because i dont think i've ever wanted a piece of tech as much as i want this :(


I would get the otter box for this... my matching otter bold, and my matching otter playbook :)


i already have a lot of things for my playbook... charging station is missing... and PlayBook of course... :D


I can't wait for this to hit the market as well. I think I would probably take advantage of the charging stand more than anything. That would make it a option to sit on my desk and use it while working - same thing I do with my Tour (and it's charging cradle).


probably a mini hdmi cable. Case would be nice but not essential.


After 2 years of my Blackberry being incased in an Otterbox defender. I would have to say I would choose the Otterbox Defender case for the Playbook. Everytime I take my phone out of the case for an occassional wipe down, I am amazed that phone still looks like the day I opened the box! The case has saved me many times as I have dropped it many times including the infamous "Drop Kicking" of phone. Drop Kicking: When one is slightly under the influence at a bar and drops their phone and then bends over to pick up and unintentionally kicks the phone to the otherside of bar under the stool that big biker guy sits with hairy arms and tattoos of a skull that says"I Kill You". At least with the Playbook Otterbox Defender case, I may actually be able to deflect his punches next time.


Man i don't care about any accessory.....just get the device in my hand RIM. Please! I am in dire need of a new gadget.

I guess i'll take a case for it though ha ha


Every morning I get up first thing I do I visit for any launch date news......Ohh forgot to mention I dreamed I am playing with BB Playbook the other day.....Pls release that magic devide soon.I will buy all the accessory with it.


Accessorizing from the start! Right on!


That rapid charger is nice, but I'd get a longer life battery for it as soon as it's available. Always had extended batteries on all my cel phones and BlackBerrys. I'll take the charger for now, though....


I'll probably get a case, but the rapid charging stand looks pretty cool too.


I will get a case. Would be nice if they come out with a case that has a keyboard built in like some thatIi have seen for other tablets.


Why would anyone pre-order accessories for the Playbook when they don't even know when the thing is coming out. It could be another 6 months.


Rapid Charging Station would be nice!


Bluetooth keyboard for sure, hated typing on the iPad and no way it's going to get any better on a smaller screen.


I will buy all of them. Can't wait my Playbook


all of the above!
Playbook is going to be used often so here is my shopping list in order of priority.
1. otterbox Case
2. bt Keyboard
3. Charging Stand
4. zipper case for when otter is to much
5. 2nd charger for office
6. HDMI cable
7. 2nd playbook for my wife


When the blackberry Bridge app appears on app world I'm going to jump for joy!


I really want the rapid charging dock!

Love using the charging dock for my Bold, so I'm sure I will love the PB dock too =)


Honestly since I'm quietly saving up for the playbook, I might as well put some extra money aside for the case, charger and keyboard. Might as well snap it all up in one shot.


I can't wait to try one out.


Kool, just need a Play Book!


i am planning to get the playbook the soonest i can this would be awesome.


Awesome. I would like to win the BlackBerry Rapid Charging Stand for BlackBerry PlayBook :)


Charging station is my choice.


Def the otterbox case.


Playbook + screen protector + otterbox case + torch = best set up ever.


A case and travel charger!

the brother

I like the charging thing! wicked!!!!


Would love to pick up a free PlayBook accessory!


Since the Playbook accessories are not listed on the Crackberry Canada site, I can only assume there is a concerted effort to exclude us.

Kevin...have you lost touch with your roots?

In any event, I'd be all over the OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry PlayBook. Then maybe the Charging Stand.


I would definitely get a skin for it, something not too think because I want to be able to carry it in my coat pocket.


I won a free IPad from a raffle at work, but would rather get the PlayBook! The first purchase for everyone should be some sort of case.


I think ill I stick with the otterbox case.. Looks awesome!


I see "All of the Above" as a choice. If I win, I'll take that please.


I'd be getting the rapid charging stand when I get my playbook


Gotta either go with the BlackBerry Zip Sleeve for PlayBook or the BlackBerry Rapid Charging Stand for PlayBook. I think either compliments the playbook well.


BlackBerry Rapid Charging Stand FTW!


With the HDMI out and 802.11N, the Playbook is essentually a HTPC. The first thing I'll be getting is something to connect it to my tv!


I'm gonna get whatever that can turn the playbook into a small desktop comp :)


A Bluetooth Keyboard please :)


I really want the OtterBox Defender. I had one for my Storm 2, which I loved, and when I accidentally put it through the wash and got a Bold 9650, I got a Defender for that, too. I have literally thrown my phone at the wall to prove how tough the case was, and of course nothing happened. I love OtterBox's cases.


It would be nice to have a case with very low profile keyboard and car cradle.


Well I'm guessing the Playbook will come witha travel charger so I'll leave that alone. First, the rapid charging stand, then a leather sleeve. Oh, and cables. Actually, that's the order I will check them off because it will all be in the first order. Lol...


I'd have to go with all of the above - if I get a playbook, I'm going all out!


A Blackberry Rapid Charging Stand is what the Crackberry Doctor order.... Thank you CB!!


Cant wait to get one of these...


definitely an otterbox! i have a bad case of dropsies lately lol :s


otter boxes are always my first accessory purchase!


Hells to the freakin yeah boy...girl....playbook. drool

Snoopster J

Otterbox ain't no fool, it protects like nobody's business. This is definitely a MUST for le livre de play!


A case ot skin and probably the charging stand!


The charging stand looks cool but the case is w must.


I'm excited for the Playbook to launch. What'd I'd want most would have to be between the Rapid Charging Stand and the OtterBox case. I like how the stand is built into the back of the case. It's a great design element. And I love how the OtterBox case on my phone has saved me several times over. The rapid charge stand is convenient, useful and shows off the device.

It's a close race, but in a pinch I'd probably have to go to with the rapid charging stand over the OtterBox, just to see what other cases come out for it first. Though, more than likely, I'd end up getting both long term.


1) Defender Case
2)3mPrivacy filter(I hope they will have one )
3.) Rapid Charge Stand
4.) Locking mount(still looking for one)
5.) wireless presenter (if compatiable)


I would like to have the OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry PlayBook


i have learned from my mistakes! first thing I get is an Otterbox defender case for my new playbook!


I will definitely go for the BlackBerry Rapid Charging Stand for PlayBook

Alpha Omega

Ive been waiting so long for the playbook to come out. Imma get 1 of everything.


I would like to win a case!


Rapid Charging Stand. I can't wait to see the business side of this device.


the stand for playbook would be an awesome one!


No doubt in my mind it would be the Rapid Charging Station. I have a spot for it on my desk just waiting, cash is ready for ther Playbook, just need the release of the item before we all have our heads explode from the wait and the hype.

Please enough already, as so many others have said......release the Playbook........


I would get a case and the bluetooth keyboard. I think these are essential items for the playbook in the business world.


I want a playbook... Now!!!


I would get a case right away because every time i wait to get one i drop my devices. Then im sad for the rest of the day lol


I want to win so bad! I never win anything!


I'd want a case with a micro SD/SDHC slot card reader and built in stand. That would be the bomb!

/wow, haven't used that saying in forever




I want the OtterBox case


I'll buy the OtterBox Defender Series Case for BlackBerry PlayBook and the BlackBerry Rapid Charging Stand for PlayBook from the CB store if I win!


The case and the keyboard for SURE. Likely a rapid charging stand as well, if its compatible with the case.


I'll need some sort of protection for it. A new skin or screen protection of some sort. Doesn't matter what it is as long as she is protected!


OtterBox Defender case that doubles as stand. Would be great for using playbook in the field and on the road!


OtterBox case is the obvious winner


I have to win this contest. Ima pray on it lol


Case for sure!! Free even better! Give me.....!!!!


Well, if only one accessory, I'll take a case.


Would love to have with a keyboard after working with an ipad with keyboard. Love the portability andI love the otterbox defender cases.


the otterbox case will do just fine for my playbook.


BB needs to release soon!


The charging stand would rock.


I will definitely buy a case for sure and possibly other accessories. I want to win the free BB Playbook! Please choose me (please, please).
