Canada gets it first, so lucky they are indeed! Just hoping I am the lucky Florida man to win with many prayers and the wishes granted from Kevin and my favorite news source! Good Luck to all , Blackberry still rules!

cant wait for playbook to get into europe and kill its competion !RIM forever. oh yea. still waitin on pb os 2.1 and of course BB10!

Wow, over 4000 entries. The chances of winning are quite slim to none :-( Maybe CB will be my lucky star ;-)

I would love to win this playbook so I can use the best tablet on the market, on the go! Thank u CB for these wonderful contests :)

will it blend that is the question hahahaah :)

i would love one too i just hope that there is 4g lte compability in my country of colombia :)

I love my playbook and winning a new one would be great, then i could give one to my grandson. The kid apps are very cool and he so enjoys playing them with Oma. I think playbook is a great tablet, very convenient to tote around, easy for the little guy to use, found lots of awesome apps, takes crisp videos and outdoor pics, i use it at work and at home. Thanks Blackberry for a fab product.

*crossing fingers for luck* Well I'm hoping. I love my current playbook, just really want that LTE goodness, then I can pass mine along to a deserving friend who could use a tablet.

Thts ma man Usian bolt on the screen. Fellow jamaican our olympic team made us proud in london. would love to get ma hand on the new 4G LTE playbook :)

I love my BB phone and have been comparing and thinking for a few months if I should upgrade to a different phone w/Flash, or buy a Playbook.
I finally decided that by making so many apps; in particular local Chicago news apps, etc, only available for Iphones - NO ONE is going to "force" me to go w/IPhone, IPad, and whatever else Apple makes.
We still have free choice in America, though God knows for how long.

I was just about to hit "pay" on BestBuy site to get a Playbook, but thought I'd check out CrackBerry first to see if there were any updates.
I think I may wait a bit to see if I can get this in the U.S.
My computer broke so either I buy a new one or u/g my Torch 9800 and get a Playbook. I'm sticking with BlackBerry/RIM!!

Wow! are you kidding me this is like a dream come true wow this is Awesome! I would love to win a brand new Blackberry Playbook 4G LTE I dream about it everyday hoping to save enough money to buy one but im very far of getting one and it would be really cool if I win because I could use it to help me in school, So PLEASE CRACKBERRY MAKE THIS NORMAL TEEN BOY WIN PLEASE IT WOULD BE LIKE WINING A MILLION DOLARS BUT BETTER!! :)


I hope the 4 is the final answer to the chase of the holy grail smooth video outside of your LAN. That would put RIM in the lead.

if i won, i will keep it for life -

my 1st PB : 16GB sold for cash issue -LOL-
my 2nd PB : 32GB sold cheap for wifi issue

I purchased 4 PLaybooks last year for my children. I could use the latest model. 2013 will be a BlackBerry year.

I need a Playbook. I'm holding out for a Playbook 'till the end of the night. It's gotta be strong, and it's gotta be fast, and it's gotta be fresh from the fight (in a crowded tablet market).

I need a Playbook. I'm holding out for a Playbook 'til the morning light. It's gotta be dual core, and it's gotta be soon, and it's gotta be LTE (though I'm truly not that picky).

Yeah, I went to the Bonnie Tyler well. That's how badly I want to win a Playbook.

i love my playbook so much..... hope i win this lt playbook .... then i will love my playbook"s" so much :).......:)

I recently gave up my BlackBerry but still find myself checking out this site regularly. I'm in serious need of some BlackBerry love.

Since my first BlackBerry, six years ago, I have refused to own or use anything else. I went from a Curve to a Bold and now a Torch! I treasure Research In Motion's dedication to security and never want anything less than BlackBerry. I have waited patiently for this awesome PlayBook! Now, because of health reasons, I might not be able to afford it for a while. Winning one would make my year! Thanks! (BTW: CrackBerry rocks! Whether I win or not, I love your feeds!)

Since I introducted my girlfriend to my playbook, it has no longer been my playbook... A new 4G LTE Playbook would be a welcome addition to feed both our addictions!

It is surprising that so many people complain about the price of this tablet but yet everybody is excited about getting it for free.

Wuaoooiiiiuuuuuu!!!!. this is a great contest!.
I hope wining this puppy... for great the MOST HAVE device!.
Sure.... my lovely playbock is great, but whit LTE!, ufff... the freedom as arrive!.

Please, St Blackberry.... for my!.

Ha i could totally use a new one. My old one got destroyed when some idiot tried stealing it from my hands... I fought to hang on and it fell down 4 flights of stairs to concrete, all because some bum thought it was a good idea to try and steal mine... Society now days, huh?

Getting a new playbook would be awesome. I've run my original PB into the ground i've used it so much. Thanks Crackberry!

Well, count me in. Although my chances are slim to nil, but I suppose it's worth a shot! Thank you for the opportunity, and thank you for the informative site.

I am chomping at the bit to read the review, and hoping makes this week the luckiest one I've had in a long time, ever!

..I have one of each WiFi PlayBooks each with their own only seems right I get one of these too...and what better way than to win one!....and hey that would help offset the fact my 32GB cost me more than the 64GB...(I really don't care, as I would buy it again at the full price) Love my desktop/laptops have been banished...

BlackBerry Torch 9860 BBOS 7.1
BlackBerry PlayBook O/S 2.xx.xxxx (16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavours)

You guys are amazing! I LOVE PLAYBOOKS and would be king of the hill if I won !

Waiting and hoping !

OK...this is it!!!! I should get the New PlayBook 4G LTE because.......hey????? Is this thing on??????.....Dang.....must of lost my Wi-Fi connection! Just goes to show you....I need the 4G LTE Playbook!!!!! :>)

Only thing to make a playbook better (except maybe an SD card slot or more onboard memory) is 4G LTE.

So far one prayer has been answered, there is 4G LTE!

Now the other prayer, to win one! It will be answered for one of us here.

The LTE Playbook looks like it could be a lot of fun even if not a whole lot faster than my WiFi Playbook. I would love to win one. I have no luck but will enter anyhow.

Would love to have it. I would give my 32gb to my wife, since she is always on it and I would take the LTE! Love blackberry till die. I'm a full supporter of the company. I would love to open a retail store in Atlanta that just sells blackberry! I educate everyone I come in contact with about the awesome and powerful devices that RIM makes. Also I would love to make my own shirts that say things like "once you go black, you never go back" or "keep your apple away, I use a blackberry everyday" & "blackberry, the original smart phone! Since 1999". I have owned 5 blackberry devices(8310,8110,8220unlocked,9530, & 9550) that I have enjoyed operating. But my latest (9930) is the best by far. I love this phone! It is so damn sexy & sleek! I really wanted it in white but couldn't really afford an unlocked one. But that's alright because the black matches my PB. Which brings me to the PlayBook, truly the best tablet on the market. It's only downfall is not its own but it has to be the lack of apps, specially popular apps. But my faith is in RIM to triple apps when BB10 comes out. But yeah I'm excited about BB10! I think it will be a real game changer! So everyone that post negative comments on CrackBerry about RIM pushing back the date just needs to chill. Speaking of CrackBerry you guys are the best. I just want to give all the thanks to Kevin and the CrackBerry crew for all the hard work you guys put into this website. I check the website twice a day, sometimes 3 to 4. Also love the podcast that you guys post. Just keep doing what your doing! I hate myself for not post something sooner, specially when you had the contest for the PB mini keyboard, which will be my next purchase if it's not a new LTE PB. From now on I'm going to be more involved with your website and stop living in the shadows. Thanks again for everything you guys do for BlackBerry, just keep keeping on!

BlackBerry Fan for life, Bruce

Lost my Playbook at the airport in Vegas, really need BlackBerry Protect for the Playbook. Getting the LTE version when it hits Verizon(assuming that happens). But I wouldn't complain if you gave me a free one :)

LTE is fine, but there is so much free wi-fi out there that the price difference may not justify opting for the LTE model.
now if they had added NFC support at the same price, that would make it an acceptable price to upgrade my current PB.

Did I make it in time?!?

If I had a PlayBook LTE, I'd keep it up-to-date... The one in the pic above needs 3

To restore my faith in Blackberry, i will accept this playbook to interface with my 8530 phone.
At least one device will be current,

Guys... I really really need this device!! Please have compassion for me!! I have a baby on the way and this would be great for the late nights I am about to have!!

If I can get this for free, I will give this to my mom, so she can video talk to her grandchild from out side of Canada. Cool!

I have left the Blackberry fold due to my company policy but I still keep my girlfiend on one. She is an avid user and I would love to give the 4g Playbook a spin to see if it would be a better fit as a porrtable device than the IPad I tote around sometimes. Bring on BB10

Love the Playbook, and the addition of a faster processor and 4G LTE just makes it that much sweeter. Looking forward to getting my hands on one soon

Been a long time reader, have never won anything. Hoping to luck out this time. Been hyping up BB10 to everyone I know for months.

We'll see.

I'm a relative newbie with my Blackberry PB but would sure LOVE to own one! So far I am only impressed with my PB, and now you say you can make it better? LEt me try it!

Please Sir, My current wifi PB sits at home most of the day because of lack of decent wifi! A 1.5Ghz PB with a sim and LTE capable would test our coming networks mettle. That and I can BlackBerry wherever!

50% faster never hurt anyone... the 4G would be a nice addition but would still have tho option to tether to my Torch... her name is GLaDOS & she knows everything :D

My current playbook is getting so much use that I may need a replacement soon. This one would be nice. The old one can be re-purposed just for visitors.

Hello I was a fan of blackberry I use to had a playbook but I sold it because I don't want to wait an eternity just to download android programs!!! I love my tablet easy to carry on and lovely but for my work there isn't enough programs on rim, now I'm researching again just to find out which tablet I want , nexus , iPad or blackberry again just if what I been heard its true abut android programs!!!! Because it's the only way that blackberry can fight against the other tablets!!!!! Thanks...

Since I moved away from the Storm 2, I've wanted to come back to the CrackBerry world. CrackBerry, help me come back! Adam, Kevin, show me some love, please!

I already have two 1st-Gen PlayBooks, but newer is always better! Three is definitely not a crowd in this case!

I love blackberry and the new LTE playbook outlook! Bring it home to me baby! Nothing but the Best forget the rest, GO RIM GO!!!!!! They rock!!! BB10 rules!!!

Thank you!!!

I already have a 16GB but my wife is constantly using it. Winning this contest will give us both a PlayBook to love! Good luck to everyone.

This is EXACTLY what Usain Bolt would use, the tablet that suits the fastest man in the world!!!!
Usain Bolt should pair this LTE Playbook with a BlackBerry Bolt!!!! XD XD XD XD XD

Please, for all the forces in the universe, all humans come together as one... PLEASE PICK ME. It's been a rough divorce, I deserve a bit of happiness in my life.
