My trip to Waterloo, the hometown of BlackBerry,  is now officially over. Research In Motion kept me BUSY from the moment I got there to the moment I left, so I haven't had a chance to do much blogging yet on the experience (will catch up over the next few days and into next week).

I was **really** hoping RIM would give me a BlackBerry Bold 9900 as a thanks for visiting present, but when it didn't look like that was going to happen I decided it was time to take the matter into my own hands to make sure I left RIM with a new Bold 9900 in hand. I'm happy to say I succeeded in attaining a Bold... even if only for a *few* seconds. Watch the video above to see the action unfold...

RevyRah

Nice job Kev!. What's with the rest of the crew not helpin with your escape?!

KPMcClave

I'd be happy to take care of your 9900 while you're doing time, Kevin. Anything to help.

DeeDudnath

PLease tell me you did an unboxing!

Emu the Foo

I'm guessing he didn't. :(

frozencloud

lol....Kevin saying "oh shit" just crack me up .

jussimple

LOL...that was comedy gold. It cracked me up too.

Emu the Foo

I thought I was the only one.

captainbdsc

Looked like a setup prank to me. So did you or did you not really get a Bold 9900?

312

I think a more appropriate user name for you would be "Captain Obvious".

captainbdsc

Yeah the capturing of Kevin, etc. was obviously a prank/joke (I am sorry I offended you by being obvious), but what I really want to know is if he really got a 9900 to keep.

Scroat

Bit of a sissy run u got there Kevin. Looked a little light in the loafers. ;-)

AdubK

Nice police vehicle

nomoredroid

That "run" was pathetic...:)

That scene almost rivaled the shirtless scene in Top Gun....too much man love going on ;)

pkcable

He probably can't say if he got one or not. ;) Might be an embargo.

big_time2

Maybe he did, maybe he didn't.

If he signed the NDA, he should give the bold to one of us and we will be more than glad to leak all the videos.

Tsudeily

LMFAOOO Kevin that was priceless. I love it!

Lovesherbb1915

Ha, I love it. But lol at that "run". :P

vx1

aaaahahaha lol awesome :) luv it !!! kevin :)

theonecid

Bahahahah this is hilariousssss. Good one Kev!

pablomdelgado

Next time have a motorcycle in front of the door to getaway, lol. Great video to end your time at RIM.

RicZoh

There is 55 seconds I won't get back. Thanks CrackBerry. Its actually more then 55 because now I'm typing....on my BlackBerry PlayBook....about it. :)

BGK

Hey, Kevin was running so fast he had to slow down for the camara! Jeez everyones a critic. Lol
It seems that RIM must be aware that people are waiting now too !

zoomlink1

I bet Kevin would have ran faster if he had dogs on his tail and "Nike" shoes on his feet... Great video!

RevyRah

Notice how Kevin isn't responding. He's too giddy with the new 9900.

RocPlayr

Dammit Kevin, behave yourself! We all want one but stealing is wrong. You know what happens to Blackberry users in those prison showers, don't ya?

jjetson

They get asked for business advice. Android users don't get bothered since you can't really do anything to them, they get raped with malware 4 hours each day until the battery dies. iPhone users on the other hand, they're prime pickens with their pretty little white phones and impressionable minds. They get the sausage.

RevyRah

Omg, is that why Rogers discontinued the white Torch 9800? :0

jjetson

Could be, I wouldn't really call the Torch pretty though.

RevyRah

It's pretty, but not to the glamor and glitz of an iPhone.

jussimple

Love the parady. Andranoids getting raped by malware, nice...

zensen

I'd like to see a review of the 9900 next week kev ;)

Abrante

I think I just SHAT myself - Mr. Deeds movie. lol, Kev teased us on this one, and I mean tease to the fullest extent. lol

dosto

Great skit. Gratz on the 9900!

@dunaway

gord888

called it! ;)
that was awesome!

kaotik_187

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! funny stuff.... anyways congrats on ur new 9900! LUCKY U! waiting on the review!! cant wait to get mine!

DIPPYNA2

Awesome action Kevin!!! Wish I was there to grab one too! Hahaha

greatwiseone

Awesome that the PlayBook demo mobile was part of the action...

Deathcommand

I told you that was his Game Plan.

bigjman

For some reason I had a feeling Kevin was going to do a video running out of rim headquarters with a 9900. The police car was a nice touch!

07thking

Dam Kev, lmfao here in starbucks! Congrats bro, it's about time, you deserve it!

posted from my crackbook!

sf49ers

lol..you made my day Kevin...really tickled my funny bone

blackmoe

LOL - the run reminded me of the pictures circulating around the net 2 years ago of Alex Rodriguez rounding the bases with a purse.

jfs101

Kevin, did you guys use the mounted Playbook for the shot inside the car? Or did you snatch it!?

jfs101

Time for a remake of that old black and white picture you took for the original Bold 9000 review!

Jimcmf

So Kevin ..... does RIM have a lot of good stuff in the Pipeline?

Will our Berrys keep fresh from now on?

lnichols

Funny stuff. Sad to see so many haters that can't even get a joke!

Dayvidpriddy

You call this a joke? Wow another one that needs to get out more...

HyTrojan

Yo Kev, did you need to remove the vendor.xml file before running off with it?

mmoran27

Please its just an oversized pager. same old crapberry.

Grow some balls and ask RIM the hard questions.

Kissing their ass to get a free blackerry is just sad

jome

Ah, the troll speaks.

surrealsounds

Move along people, nothing to see here, CB fans.

Another sad, hilarious case of "Haters gonna hate". Nothing new.

SS 9_9

Dayvidpriddy

You must not get out a lot?

surrealsounds

Man, if you're gonna make a run for it, you could at least made it look exciting! Duck and weave! Psyche him out! Run in circles! Entice him with doughnuts! This could have gotten EPIC!

Still, I knew a video was gonna come. And I enjoyed it fully.

SS :D

Soon2B

haha Kevin, that was awesome. a little too scripted but awesome none the less.

jeffydude05

Only thing that would of made that better is Kevin getting tasered! :D

togardergrosse

As the title is 'I got my BlackBerry Bold 9900!' and not 'I **got** my BlackBerry Bold 9900!' Then I believe that Kevin indeed managed to get one Bold 9900 in his possession. :)

tliolos

He Definitly got one - for all he does for BB they should give a gold plated one! I expect to start hearing your reviews on it now !!!

w.mshati

Best video on Crackberry yet. And obviously he did get one, regardless if he was busted or not :D

BSFA2008

Even the vehicles are just demos. : (

knuckles231

He obviously didnt get one guys. The whole thing was a joke. i love how everyone is congratulating him on his new non device.
cant wait to get one though :)

ignites

too bad thats not REAL rim security =P. real rim security uses prius they have a bunch of them at rim 6 ....

Marc_Paradise

I'm not gonna say what it looks like you were doing to that poor phone after you got it into the back seat - practically confirmed by the relaxed look and big grin you show in the next shot as you cuddle the phone...

veldacy1

lol @ demo vehicle...

vecharo

either i'm tired...or that was legitimately funny. LMAO!!

dancing-bass

Funny thing. On the rear fender of the car was "DEMO VEHICLE". Perhaps driven by DEMO COPS to protect the DEMO BOLD 9900 that Kevin stole?

Can't wait to see an unboxing of this phone!!

thetnaung

kevin, you are crazy but we love you and CB :)

snowindec9

wow getting arrested in a demo vehicle.that was cheesy. but love the excitement.

jamesbyjr

A man has to do what man has to do! Desperate times call for desperate measures!!! LOL Too funny!!! We all are going to be doing what Kevin did if RIM does not release any devices soon!!!!

SlcCorrado

I've only been here since '09 but that's the funniest thing I've seen here on CrackBerry! Nice work Kevin :D

Takhis

Hey Kev, is that the police car where they did the demo with the Playbook? I was wondering if they were using 4G Playbooks for the Police car...

Pootermobile

Kevin what you needed was some PF Flyers (The Sandlot) you wouldve been able to outrun the cops easily!

RevyRah

Any time someone makes a Sandlot reference, you get a standing applause. Nice job.

bellxx

next time take me and lets see if we can pull a bait and switch. I'm a better runner.

PiotrJot

Big LOL Kev!
Was fun watching :-)

And just BTW: did you put on some weight ?
;-)

Mvor7

Looks like he put on some buff.... Scary.

sirk25

Good job Kevin.... But dude, seriously? You got 2 hands, why didn't you grab another one for someone else. Where's the love man? LoL. Cheers......

blackberrykyng

Lol! Too bad you didn't fet away with it!

It's good to be the BlackBerry Kyng!

Essoo

Love the new Dodge Charger

jlb21

IMHO, that didn't look like a 9900 to me. Looked kinda grey and Curve like......

kinghai

Even the police car is also demo version =))

Joe257

C'mon Kevin, you could have walked out casually with it in your pocket! Waving it around was your demise!!!!

Oo_Tut_oO

I like how the car said "demo vehicle". lol

sjawelsh

Good to see that the powers that be at RIM have a nice sense of humour to help you out on this.
Nice job Kevin, looking forward to you sharing the whole experience.

madcap71

i too got my hands on one of these last night, a SEXY piece of kit, can't believe how slim it is

zd1996

Hey Kevin, what phone do you use for your everyday use? I'm using a 9650 waiting for the bold 9930
