Na, Na, Na, Na, BLACKBERRY IS KING!!!
Na, Na, Na, Na, BLACKBERRY IS KING!!!

At 43 years old, I just got my 1st Blackberry....Torch 9810 (white)...LOVE IT! So of course a Playbook alongside would be icing on the cake!!

I'd like to win that ,all I've ever won in my life is an Ipad2 :/ and I gave it away to my friend. Hopefully that will give me good karma?

Torch 9810

5,XXX +, MAN, HOW CAN I WIN, HOW WILL YOU GUYS CHOOSE THE WINNER? WILL YOU GUYS READ ALL OF THE COMMENTS? IT BETTER BE WORTHY!!! ITS CRAZY, WHEW..!!!!! I LOVE CRACKBERRY.COM

Waiting for BB 10, haven't needed a tablet as of yet, but not going to pass on an opportunity to win one.

i am sorry if i double posted, i can not finds any posts that i submitted. crossing my fingers that i win :)

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.

Apple is the Porche of the tech world.. no matter what happens every generation will look the same and price will rip you off ... Long Live BB!!

As a Canadian, I gotta support RIM. As someone with jamaican parents, I gotta support Bolt. As someone who needs a tool and not a toy, how could I not love Blackberry? I can shut all my iPad/iPhone friends up with this!

RIM took my BlackBerrys and my PlayBook when they laid me off yesterday! I could really use a new one!

Qwerty in black and great berry

Upgraded playbook is not a waste for me, i'll give up my android phone if i win this gadget hehehe, playbook w/ faster processor and the ability to use cellulsr data, ill always be here waiting for you PB-02, your future name when you are mine already...

why would i choose a Playbook when I can get an iPad or Android Tablet..

1. RIM makes it -- excelent quality
2. Syncs with my Blackberry Phone
3. Runs Android apps
4. Runs Playbook apps
5. It will be FREE if I win (tops all others)

I've dedicated myself to the switch back to BlackBerry after playing around with an old 8820. I'll be buying a BB10 phone as soon as one is available, and I'd love an LTE PlayBook to go with it :)

I would love nothing more than to get my hands on one of these!! I have been a crackberry addict for years but just don't have the money to buy a tablet, but I would love one for university!

I would love a new playbook 4g! I need a playbook to match with my lovely bold 9900! Thanks crackberry, you guys are the best!!

let me win .plsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
4g lte rocks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
rim is back on track again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Daughter, Son, Wife and I would love a Playbook!!! Don't worry about the fighting...we'll have to deal with it!!! PLEASE!!!

The pic of Bolt is great. Fastest man in the world on a best system. (I'm referring to BB10 of course)

I need this bad. My 2 year old took is metal toy bus and used my PB as a road.
He was running the bus back and forth then made the bus jump and slammed it on the PB Screen.
Cracked, Digitizer Gone.
Like I said need this.

Count me in! this would be such a fantastic gift for the girlfriend, and then should wouldn't always be asking for mine

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.

:) love th pb. If i win this my son can have my old one and that would mean he doesnt need to keep stealing mine for games online because he knows its better than those apple things..

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.

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

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.

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

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.

I'm really enjoy my new or should I say used Playbook I bought on eBay. Just hope they put more apps that will really be great to use with the Playbook.

Before I purchased my Bold 9790 I never considered buying a Playbook. But now after using my Bold for 4 months I fell in LOVE BlackBerry and would really hope I can win this Playbook! :)

Dear CrackberrY,

Please give mE a blackberrY, 4G LTE.
For you sEE that would bE, the bEE's knEE's to mE.
To accompanY perfectlY, my 32gig wi-fi onlY.
Thanks in advance and I soon hope to sEE,
In my mailbox, a Playbook 4G!!!

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!

This is a pefect opportunity for get a tablet for my 2 newborn sons. Me and my family are avid blackberry users. It will be a honor to pass the "torch" onto them, starting with the playbook.

The 4g would be love to be with me as I would proudly display it to the isheep masses and show them the superior tablet on the market today!!!!!!! And yes app fans there is still fart apps available if you feel you would be missing them from the app store. LG 4 ME PLEASE!

With this many people commenting, what are the chances I could win? I have with me a 64gb Playbook here in Saudi Arabia and loving every bit of it. Going to be visiting the States in ten days. Hopefully I'll get my hands on another one with 4G one way or another! :)

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

I am hoping that this one corrects some of the bug a boos on my current playbook. Cause all in all I still love it. I actually picked it over the Ipad3.

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.

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.

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!
