Want to attend the BlackBerry 10 fan event in New York this month and win a new BlackBerry 10 phone? Here's your chance. BlackBerry is offering up a chance for 30 winners to head to the event at the end of January AND walk away with a brand new BlackBerry 10 device.

If you're on Twitter, all you have to do is Tweet a 10 word story to @blackberry about your excitement for BlackBerry 10 using the hashtag #BlackBerry10NYC (and make sure you're following them). Come up with the best story and you could be chosen to win!

Keep in mind you'll have to get to the event on your own and be there in person to claim the device. The contest is open to the US and Canada and runs until January 11th. You can check out full contest rules and details at the link below. Now get to Tweeting!!

This would be super sweet!

I drive by RIM HQ everyday and daydream about bb10 #blackberry10NYC @blackberry

Why does RIM have such a hard-on for Twitter? Even though this would be a sweet win, I refuse to use Twitter.

Why not FB, direct website entry, email, smoke signals...anything other than Twitter?

BriniaSona

Exactly, I don't even know how to use twitter.

digitalhomeboy

It's 140-character limit typing. What's hard to comprehend?

slagman5

It's not that it's hard to understand, it's that it's retarded... Facebook is stupid enough, Twitter is just a retarded version of facebook...

It's pretty much just a pat on people's self-conscious back making them feel that people are "following" them, meaning people actually care what the heck they are doing at the time... I don't need that kind of self-reassurance, I don't have the illusion that people actually care where I am or what I'm doing every minute of my life...

You should give twitter a try. Twitter makes you want to have drinks with people you don't know while Facebook makes you want to throw drinks at people you do know.

Better Chance for me!

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

I have twitter and I still agreed with you until I read FB. I dont think it should be FB either. I think they should offer such things for people that choose not to be on any social networking. 100% agree with website, email, text to enter, BBM to enter, anything else...You shouldn't have to join the non privacy sites of 2013. Yes I am aware you can change privacy settings. Its amazing how the "promoted" ads on twitter are still RIM for me even though I have max security settings, only because of a few tweets. Targeted (or what they call "promoted" on twitter) ads are sleazy and cannot be avoided unless you don't have these sites. There should be a safe heaven to enter contests for those which choose not to stoop to them.

tekware

I feel exactly the same way - about Facebook. Never going to happen.

decypher44

Travel Not Included???? Uh, lame.

Alphax45

Worst. Contest. Ever!

Seriously Crackberry, no flight/hotel/spending money? Just tickets to the event and a BB10 phone?

Not going to bother to enter now. Can't afford a flight to NYC.

travaz

Hmmm Rim cant afford the expense!

Rootbrian

Well it sure sucks to be you. If you can't afford to enter or pay for the travel expenses yourself, don't bother at all then. But don't call a contest something really stupid, because it's you who looks stupid. ITS A CONTEST.

Rootbrian

What? So you expect every company to pay for your expenses? Get real.

shemaree09

They should at least include airfare or hotel. Come on!! They should just open this contest to New Yorkers only. The same thing happened to me when I "won" a Playbook. I had to be in Miami to claim it. A flight to Miami was $500.

Rootbrian

Not everyone contest is fair to everybody.

zenadventurer69

What if I'm not stupid enough or bored enough or self-important enough or "tool" enough to have a Twitter account but I have the best BB10 story out here?

travaz

I swear if you give some people a 100 dollar bill they would complain that they needed 5 20's

decypher44

Just pay over a grand for flight and hotel. You'll pay more for the phone this way (oh, and US residents also get to pay taxes on the prize). It would be better to NOT win and just get the phone when it comes out. In this case, you lose when you win.

jhrain

Entered and would love to use up some frequent flyer miles to claim my prize. :)

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

I have elite status with Star alliance. Trying to get to super elite this year. Heres to hoping!!!

goufer

Nice,Nice,Nice let me win.
NY sweet

Andrew4life

Thank to all those not entering because that gives me a better chance.
I'm from Toronto and this would be an event that I would not miss if I had tickets for it.
I'll pay for bus tickets or plane tickets, or whatever, just to be there!!!

decypher44

It would be better if RIM made it obvious and crystal clear that any winner would have to pay for their own travel and accomdiations, as well as pay any applicable taxes on the prize. This would eliminate a crap-ton of people from entering. I can imagine someone winning this, not knowing, and not being able to attend. Prize doesn't get awarded while someone like you could have gone to the event.

Most of that info IS listed in the "Contest Rules"

TommyBB

I need to win this!! Desperate to go and I live in Manhattan already!!!

bcuffy

Count me in, Blackberry, and let's rock n roll this.

I entered with a protest tweet about the lack of travel. Way to screw over the west coast.

BBVegasGirl80

It is disappointing there is no West Coast launch. :-(

DaedalusIcarusHelios

No travel/accommodations does suck, but I'll drive (from Michigan) and take some vacation time from work if I win.

igotberryfever

ALL,
I AM M 35 LIVE CLOSE TO NYC AND REALLY WANT TO GO. I POSTED ON TWITTER ALREADY . THEY SAY ITS YOU PLUS 2 IF I WIN ILL TAKE 2 FROM CRACKBERRY BUT ALSO IF YOU WIN AND I DONT PLEASE TAKE ME. ILL PAY FOR THE TAXI IF YOU TAKE ME.

SEAWARRIOR

twitter, schmitter,,, apparently they, Rim, didn't learn from the feedback on the last tweeter-based give-away,,, i can throw a rock @ NYC but, no transportation??? C'MOOOWN MAAAN!!!

"THE GUY YOUR MOTHER WARNED YOU ABOUT"

Jenlabellefille

I NEED to go to this!!! I'm gonna be a good girl and say my prayers every night lol

mandony

BUMMER.
I "LIVE" (happily) in New York City, and have plenty of time later this month to go to the NYC event. I want to be FIRST in line to purchase a BB10 (my old BB9000 is pretty much an antique).

That being said, I am one of the only few hundred individuals in the world who does NOT have a Twitter (or for that matter, also NO Facebook) account. DUH!

So, looking at the 'rules', there is no opportunity to enter the 'contest'.
There appears to be no opt out for exclusion from the twitter 'rule'.

Here we go TMobile, enter my order for a BB10 phone at the 'preferred' customer cost.

jstarett

Why do Canadians have to answer a mathematical question to go?

pick1eberry

It's Canadian Sweepstakes Law requirement. The skill testing question.

AfroZepher

Just to make sure I'm reading the contest rules right . . .they are giving away a total of 30 BB10 phones?!?!?!? looks like the odds are looking real good for me!!! Being Team Blackberry in NYC has its perks!!!!

svengoreson

it was a nice contest, but I was away in that period. When do you think that it will be the next one?
