Head to the CrackBerry Forums to leave a comment and you could win a new PlayBook!

Can you believe it? A full year has gone by since the release of the BlackBerry PlayBook. We've been through some ups and downs, but it's be an amazing year. The PlayBook has come a long way since it's initial release - seeing the addition of native PIM apps, Android app support and much more in the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update has made a truly awesome tablet. We just received a new 2.01 OS update as well and are on the way to see what's in store for the next year. BlackBerry World and BlackBerry 10 are right around the corner and are sure to bring some new awesomeness to our favorite tablet, so here's to hoping for another great year!

Contest: To celebrate the one-year birthday, we have a BlackBerry PlayBook to give away to one lucky winner. All you need to do to enter to win is head to this forums thread and leave a comment. Tell us how much you want a new PlayBook and just what you'd use it for. If you have one already, how would a second be beneficial? If you don't have one, what makes you want it? We'll pick one winner to receive a brand new BlackBerry PlayBook. The contest ends this Sunday at midnight. Good luck!

I'm 35 and my first mobile phone ever was, after long and careful consideration, the 9800. Hooked! Then, partly influenced by my new 'addiction', bought the playbook on its initial release. Wonderful! Now here's the thing, given that we are both poor research students, I have to share the playbook with my partner, so therefore have to put up with her email, music, and games :-( !! In short, I need another playbook (she loves it but won't admit it, mind).

More importantly, regardless of whether I 'win' a playbook or not, this device needs to continue to be supported and developed. For all its faults (and like any tablet in the wild there are a few), the tablet space would be significantly poorer without the Blackberry Playbook!!!!!

Happy birthday playbook and good luck everyone!

I have a PlayBook now and am very impressed with it. I loaded my music on it and now just about all the free space is gone 32G. I like it so much as a music player I gave my ipod away. So I would use one just for my music.

Happy Birthday Playbook. Now you can be mine!

miyacom

Why do I want a Playbook? Because I am Blackberry's #1 fan and my Bold needs a BFF!

Pretty ironic that its my CS professor and her husband's birthday too.

I love these contests!

landolambert7

I was wondering when CB would run a contest like this. I read CB daily from work and VIA my phone several times a day. I've seen ads for Playbook but never "played" with one. I am a US service member and I called a friend who is watching my kids and last night and she told me she was using her Playbook to show my kids pics. I was sold.

Just when you think you've seen it all...Blackberry does it again. Love what you do and Be Bold doing it. :-) ~ CrackBerry Torch Addict

WOW.Cool. THaNksss CrackBERRy.

Happy Birthday PB!

I have a 32GB PB and would love to give one to my 6 year old nephew who is becoming a luddite like his father (my younger brother who I love like a brother) .

Cheers!

Happy Birthday Playbook! Hope to see more birthdays in the future!

I would love a 2nd PlayBook -- the 64G version. I'd give my 16G to my daughter and her partner, so that I could Video Chat with them whenever they're out of town. I've already found out that VC'ing is much more pleasant than Skyping, as for some reason both the video and audio on Skype is pretty bad in my present location (lots of herky-jerky on the video, and frequent feedback grinding-hissing).

tungbeng71

Happy birthday, incredible multi-tasking device!

whyaskus70

I love the playbook! I would like to win one for my wife so she may enjoy the best tablet.

Thank you, Crackberry Nation!

"Never underestimate the Power of the Playbook" that's how i start my conversation when someone pops up a debate on tablets. A year later the playbook still stands strong and amazingly powerful. Won't mind a second one to enforce my theory :D

Go Crackberry Team

I had my PlayBook stolen in Boracay, the Philippines. Came back from a day's walking and it was gone from my bag. Such bad luck…

bsdnix

this is dumb... they are giving away only to people that they know...

Tangerine350

Although I purchased a Playbook not long after launch day I rarely if ever get to use it. My wife and son have claimed it since and I don't have a chance of using it and I love it. So one for me would be great!

Cheers,
Paunngaq

Tangerine350

Our household can't bare to function with just one Playbook. We would love to have one more.

Happy Birthday PlayBook.....you certainly don't look your age. Pick me please!

ingeniumed

Happy Birthday underdog, The world's most powerful tablet that has not yet been fully adopted. But it has by me and I would love to get another one to watch movies in full 1080p and not lag at all while tethering to my torch and controlling it through bridge. Nothing beats that, not even an ipad. That is the playbook.

marinovedder

well, well, well..... luck be on my side!!! hb playbook!!!!!

Lots of hopes to win one. And I'm one too.

wirelessgal

Happy Birthday BlackBerry Playbook! Woohoo!!! RIM will survive!
I would love a second one because I BABY my BlackBerry devices. So I would leave one home at all times and take my second one out with me and not have to worry about "babying" it all the time. Of course I would still take care of it. :)

fyreball

Great contest!
