upgrading my dev 10 alpha to newest code..lookgin forward to working with an LTE PlayBook....tested a beta version of WiMax Playbook and was faster than my PC for internet browsing. Boot up times really suck though....remember Windows 3.1? Windows 95? go out, make coffee, have breakfast....and then screen would come up...same on PlayBook.

bmartz77

I could definitely use a 4G Playbook, especially since my step son tried to put the charger cord into the mini-hdmi slot, it wouldn't go so he tried to push harder, it slipped and pushed across the screen and I now have a scratch that goes from bezel to bezel.

arriagar

Greenknight66

I'll take one... I like tech.

lifelongbbfan

I received a Playbook (wifi only) a few weeks ago as a birthday present, and it was love at first swipe.

I want the LTE so I can show it off to my colleagues and prove to them that indeed their Goopple branded products what they really are -- overpriced toys.

sadobson

I would love to win a playbook I think BlackBerry are ace

GrapheneMan

I would love to win the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook.

[Magnum Opus mode on]
I have recently purchased a Playbook to use as an e-reader as it was approx £150 for a 32GB Playbook vs the similar cost of a Kindle etc. [usual rip-off prices in the UK ]

I have got a tablet that is technically very good and can function as an e-reader that is more than adequate and I get all the extras that are included in the Playbook.

I recently installed the latest 2.1 Beta and the tablet is fast, smooth and allows multiple Android apps to run at the same time with no problems at all.

If the 2.1 Beta is anything to go by the full RTM version will be Wonderful.

I cannot wait for BB10 and could not be happier with my purchase to date.

The LTE Playbook would solve my connectivity problem as I have yet to get a BlackBerry Phone (although the 9320 looks good as a start as my needs are simple) and have no connectivity other than wi-fi at home.
[Magnum Opus mode off]

I am 'BlackBerry By Choice' and hopefully a Winner by your choice. :=))

daivivo

Give it to me, I love PlayBook!!!!

canuck_67

I can solve world hunger, make peace, and complete my backyard 3.2GW Mr Fusion. But I need the power of BB10 and a LTE Connection. Help the world, give me the power of the playbook to solve all the world's problems in one fell stroke.

The future is now in your hands, I have come as far as I can alone.

Harryl6134

Would look over to have one!

ISF

Count me in dont want to lose out

ettorwe

well done Kevin and the gang, keep up the good work!

mateo.quimbaya.ramos

Crackberry, I´m from Colombia and as you may know latin america is one of the regions where RIM has the of their clients. But their participation in our market is starting to decrease slowly. We can´t allow this to happen!!! Thats why I want to win a 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook, because is not a very popular product in here, but by winning the contest I would be able to proudly show everyone what a great product it is and how RIM is an excellent company to reafirm RIMs image in our region! Please pick me!

dougmixer#CB

Mission in life: To win a Playbook. Period.

Well done kevin and the gang, keep up the good work!

nazreil25

Would love to have one. Im a student visitor here in USA and I'm really dissapointed with the prepaid BIS, $60 on tmobile per month is unreasonable for a student like me. I am an IT student and in need of being always online on the go. This 4g tablet will be put in good use. Thank you CB for giving a chance for all of us. More Powers! #BlackBerryByChoice

HumbledOne

Yes!! I would love the new Playbook 4g LTE. Blackberry has always been my phone of preference. There are still a lot of us loyal bb users left in the world while others run to join the fad of the green guy and the fruit and quickly learn why bb has been the originators in the mobile world.

andino

Can't imagine having to pick 1 winner out of the over 5k entries so far, but you can't win if you don't enter... Soooo sign me up please:). I would love to add the 4G version to my current 2 wifi devices. This way I can hand down my 16gig one to my son (who I told my wife who I bought it for). :)

If I win, I'll send you a pic of my son (15 months old) with a playbook and a big smile on his face.

Let me win and we will get Bla!zed! :o)~* * *

Docnostra

I accidently left my playbook on the roof of my car and then drove away. I was lucky enough to watch my playbook cartwheel a few times before it was demolished by the wheel of the truck behind me. With little optimism I pulled over and walked back to see what was left. The digitizer was not shattered......it was powdered! Thats right powdered, not a single glass shard but only fine white traces of powdered digitizer in the area! Also I believe it was on fire for a brief moment because as I was walking towards the destruction I saw a small cloud of heavy black smoke wafting from the mangled playbook. The smoke could have also been some sort of tire burn from the other cars that ran over it. For the record I was driving about 90 km/h when the tablet plummeted to its DOOOOOOOOoooooooooommmmmmmm...

I have a small business where I repair tablets and smart phones, however, this tablet was done for good. Not even "techno Jesus" would be bringing that fine peice of tablet back from the grave that it was obliterated into. The positive spin to the story is that the bluetooth keyboard in the case actually survived! It must have been thrown out of the case on one of the first few cartwheels like a drunk driver not wearing his seatbelt. (for the record, drinking and driving is horrible)

Anyways, if you have not figured it out yet....I would really like another playbook. I loved the one I had and I would definitely appreciate some new tech to help keep my repair business rolling and keep me organized in college. Admittedly the destruction was all my fault, but if you can hook me up I will not make that mistake again.

Thanks for reading, have a great day!
