CrackBerry Santa Contest Reminder: Enter to win an IOU for a BlackBerry 10 SuperPhone (or your choice of another BB device)!

Win a BlackBerry 10 Phone!
By Kevin Michaluk on 22 Dec 2011 12:00 pm EST

Wow, do things ever change fast. When we posted this contest just a few weeks ago on December 1st, BlackBerry 10 was still called BBX and we were expecting the first next-generation BBX phone to hit the market in "calendar Q1, 2012."

Now bee-bee-ex has become BlackBerry 10 and it's going to be "late 2012" before we see any devices. We're going to stick to our guns and keep our CrackBerry Santa contest branded the same, with the same prize, but just because we're good people and don't want to see anybody wait too long, we're going to give the winner of this contest the choice to either wait it out and keep their IOU for a BlackBerry 10 phone for later in the year or trade it in early for their choice of currently available BlackBerry 7 Smartphone and an accessories package from

The contest ends Midnight PST on New Year's Eve, but we wanted to give you a good reminder before the holidays hit. If you haven't entered, click the image above or link to below to jump over the to the official contest post and leave a comment!

IOU :) Happy Holidays ALL


would like to win one please


You know I have to get in on this... you kidding me!!!!!! Please hook me up CB!!!!


Put me down for one please. Happy Holidays All.


Why does CB still call it BBX? Didnt they hear, its BB10 now.


Kevin Michaluk

Because we did that graphic before it was rebranded BlackBerry 10 and I don't feel like changing it.

We do it call it BlackBerry 10... But just like BB is short for BlackBerry, BBX is still short for BlackBerry 10. So get used to it.. I think we're gonna be using both BBX and BlackBerry 10 forever and ever.  :)


Wait...why offer one if it's not ready? Sorry..couldn't resist.

Sure, what the hell


i'm on the 9550 so i'd love any new bb at this time. if its the 9930 or the london, i'm all about it. BB 4 life.


Well X is still the Roman numeral for 10 - so BBX is still relevant as an abbreviation - anyway, I'm sure Kevin knew that! ;)


i WANT. no. i NEED this. I still have a Storm 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please? Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.


I would love a BlackBerry Bold 9790 , I like the Bold 9900 but its too chunky.

sooo Pick Me ! I need a new phone.


Sign me up... I'm in a serious need to upgrade my aging 9700.


Do we need to Post a comment in this Thread again to participate??? I really really REALLY wanna Win =O


I was thinking about waiting for the BB10 devices and sticking with my 9700 for a bit longer anyway, so the extra delay doesn't bother me.

Happy holidays!


It's a long wait... but I have patience. Me too please.


Long wait but well worth it. Merry xmas and happy new year


It is worth the wait! :) Merry Christmas everyone at


Dear Santa, i have been a firm believer in blackberry and a big crackberry fan...i think i deserve to be rewarded ;-)....BBX plz!

Merry Xmas too all!


The Bold 9900 is where I want to go. Now that it'll be so long with the BB10 phones...


I bet you BB 10 will not see the light of day until early 2013.


BBX BBX BBX BBX - just for me!!!!!


Love to give it a shot...


already on this year's christmas wish list. grant me a freebie...please!


Looking forward to using one!!!


look at all those people who are posting in the wrong thread becuase they didn't read the article................Oh well less competition for me ;)


I was just thinking the same thing! I kinda want to Reply "FAIL" to each and every one of them.


that would be sooo awesome to get an IOU for one of the BB10!! =D


pik meee ! o amazing crackberry :)


The best gift ever for Christmas if i win
Merry Christmas.


what an awesome contest! would love to win! count me in!


BBX or BlackBerry 10 no matter what is the name! I want that phone! :)


Kevin you should disable the comments on this post because people don't read


This would be a very Merry Christmas indeed!

Fernando Almeida

Delay it is bad ...bad for the shares immediatly.
Will be great the RIM close conferences . Suprise the market with very competitive products.

I believe the reason was their stock . the value must to oblige the delay the new BBX=BB10 .

I think that the responsables have a big "chalanger" ...


pick me please!

i'll wait for the bb10 bold!


Would I be with a BB10 superphone! Thanks for the chance!


Please throw my hat into the ring.
Good Luck


Wow, what a Christmas gift this would be!


That is pretty amazing. Makes it a tough decision


Add me on your list pls....


Wish everyone in the Crackberry world a very safe and happy holiday!


Happy holidays everyone! Since the BB10 WILL be delayed on the release (sadly), I don't mind winning a BB9981 at all! I'm already very comfy using my OS7 device(9930). Very pleased at it's performance! I guest it's time for me to move up another level and that's whether a BB10 device or the BB9981! So, I hope I win! Btw, I will always be a BB loyal user! To make thing simple...for me Android is trash & I'm not a kid anymore to an iDevice! BB's are for people who is serious with their life & damn well, very professional! More power BB!!!


Just posted this morning but now it's only showing 62 comments and mine isn't one of them, so just to be on the safe side, save me from my iPhone!


My original wishlist is a BB10 device but duw to the delay in release! I would LOVE to have the BB P'9981 instead! I fell in love with it as soon as the news of it's release was announced(by CrackBerry)! So please CB Santa, let me win a BB P'9981... Thank you CB! More power!!!


As always crackberry remain simply the best by giving us opportunity win this contest. Hope I win!!, good luck every one!
