Leave your BlackBerry Haiku Contest entry in the comments to this post. Good luck!

BlackBerry Haiku Contest!

Look at that! CrackBerry contest week is barely over and we're bringing you another chance to win a BlackBerry smartphone! And this time it's not luck that will win your BlackBerry of choice, it's your creativity and talent. Full details from our friends at Where after the break ...

BlackBerry Haiku Contest

In honor of the WHERE mobile application launching on the BlackBerry Storm smartphone, WHERE has partnered with CrackBerry.com to give away a free BlackBerry smartphone to one of its readers.

I know what you are thinking: free BlackBerry smartphone! Where do I sign up? The contest rules are easy. In haiku form, answer the question: WHERE is your BlackBerry smartphone right now? Leave it in the comments section of this post either in text or link to a YouTube video.

Top 10 haikus will be chosen by the WHERE team on March 10th. Then it's up to you, CrackBerry community, to vote for the winner. The winner will be notified via email on March 16th and will have a choice of a BlackBerry smartphone or Gift Card towards the BlackBerry store, value up to $400.

Example Haikus: WHERE is your BlackBerry smartphone Right Now? Here are a couple of examples to get you started:

Nestled in a warm
Place, my BlackBerry smartphone
Waits for a loud ring

In my pocketbook
Probably at the bottom
Under my lipstick

How to Score Additional Points:
1. Standard Haiku format is 3 lines of 5,7,5 syllables. Please adhere to this format, or your entry may be disqualified. Prime Numbers Rule!
2. Get an A or B list celebrity to read your Haiku on video and automatically Win! Note, Gary Coleman does not count as an A or B list celebrity but will be admitted under the condition that he reads your haiku AND says, "Whatcha talking about Willis"
3. Mention WHERE in your Haiku and automatically get a brownie point
4. How are we determining the top 10? The ones that make us laugh the hardest. Simple enough, right?

About Where: A little more about the WHERE mobile application. WHERE is a location-based application that uses GPS to help you find people, places and things. Whether it's tracking down the cheapest gas, getting reviews to a new restaurant, satisfying your craving for a latte, or helping you find your friends in a crowded city, WHERE delivers the best in local information from Eventful, Yelp, GasBuddy, Zipcar, Starbucks, Buddy Beacon and more. WHERE also lets you see your places on a map, get directions and share locations with friends. WHERE can be downloaded from Built for BlackBerry.com and Where.com. For more info on Where for the Storm, you can watch this video.

Snug as a bug in a rug
Having lots of fun

McLovin when I said that
"I've got a boner!"

Where, Oh Blackberry,
Might you be hiding yourself?
I cannot find you.

When last I saw you,
You were tucked carefully safe
'Neath my pillowed head.

Alas that strap so
Handy proved just dandy to
Feline willful play.

This artful night-time
Thief, whilst I slept soundly took
You to parts unknown.

Thanks to WHERE and CB for the chance to win a BB.

Best regards!

Daniel S

With me all the time
Loyal wherever I go
Driving Steve Jobs nuts!

Please don't tempt me now
Promised not at dinner time
Oh why the hell not

Left office at six
But boss now in my pocket
Working all night long

I read cb.com everyday and sadly have a slow early generation berry. Thanks for your consideration.

Somewhere far away,
My Berry asks WHERE oh WHERE
Are your fingers at?

Constantly seeking
The smartest phone of them all,
I wait in anguish!

To keep me happy-
Till another Storm I'll see!

Need another fix...
"Where?" any "Where!" Make it Snappy!
More cool apps I'll load...

----------------------------

For "Where" I'll be found,
With my Storm downloading "Where."
For now, have to 'Poynt'.

----------------------------

Okay, so my SmartPhone is
not an Apple, It
can still beat up an iPhone!

Where, Oh Where, is my
Ba-bee? My Sweet BlackBerry Storm?
Where is my Baby now??

Entitled "Based On A True Story..."

My Blackberry Storm.
It could be on the dock, lit.
Or else it could be...

Placed in my pocket.
People might get curious...
And ask are you gay?

Because of the bulge...
That will inhibit my sway.
My Storm always seems...

To get them talking.
It gets girls to start flocking.
False advertising.

Is what I may feel...
But I do not care because...
Girls and phones? BIG DEAL!

But now I have WHERE...
The hottest application.
To find a place to...

Take a vacation.
I left my blackberry home.
And now I am screwed.

Because my smart phone.
Compensates the obvious.
Adored no more dude!

My time is now spent...
Alone with my blackberry.
Reading Crackberry...

THE END... WATCH OUR YOUTUBE VIDEO AND UPDATE MY FRIEND TARA'S BLACKBERRY!

Storm is in my hand
WHERE all Blackberries should be
Downloading an App!

Tedious

Haiku Kinyu Exchange it?

Applications fade.
YouTube ERRORs PLAYING made.
1st phone charged too hot.

Second, power fought.
BB Browser bugs invade.
iPhone's envey not.

Final straw: No ring.
Where is software for this thing?
Always calm 'for Storm.
