Well that was fun - yesterday Apple dropped the news of two new iPhones that are being released shortly. The iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. If you're an Apple lover then they'll make for fun new toys, but if you're more of the #ICHOOSEBLACKBERRY10 type of person (our favorite type of person) you probably don't care all that much. So that means you're here just to find out who won yesterday's contest, right?

Well here's the deal - I said to tell us in the comments what you'd like to win as a prize and if you won, that's what you'd get. And just for fun, I always said you could leave as many comments as you wanted for this contest to increase your chance of winning.  Lo and behold, a bunch of you did just that. So for those that put in a ton of comments - you get an A for effort. You're all crazy awesome.

It turns out the grand prize winner's comment was only asking for a coveted Z10 multimedia dock (of which I happen to have a couple kicking around), so since the value of that is a lot lower than a new phone we're also going to award a bunch of prizes to those of you who put in a lot of multi-comment effort (we know we won't get all of you in here... but we'll get ten of you covered at least).

The grand prize winner who chose to get my Z10 multimedia dock is:

Lee Clark

And we also have TEN winners of $50 ShopCrackBerry gift certificates to these users for their awesome commenting efforts.

So that's that! We'll be reaching out to all of you with more details on how to claim your prizes. Thanks to everyone that entered (soooo many comments!) and rest assured we'll be back with more contests and more chances to win awesome prizes very soon.

JK bro you won fair and square. Congrats!!

Bacon Munchers

Very 70's, but I am more interested in the larger (of the two) slabs on the white sofa.... Is that a Z30 dev, or have you tripped and bought an Android?

I likely can't post images like Blaze but, this called for some editing...

Supergrats to the winners!

camera531

It's very telling that the grand prize winner won a dock. Other winners won CrackBerry gift certificates. It's not too hard to read between the lines... (as in BlackBerry isn't going to be around much longer). In a sense, this was much more of a news story than a contest.

Bla1ze

Or you know, Kevin just has no use for the dock lol. I sold mine as well, surely a sign BlackBerry is done for. Yup.

camera531

Then it's frankly very lame. To have a contest like this, with thousands of BlackBerry fans responding, only to give away a dock sitting in your desk instead of a Z30 or Q10 is a little strange and uncool.

ThaMunsta

I think you spent too much time reading between the lines and not reading the actual lines... The contest was for, and I quote "A Z10? A Q10? An IOU for a Z30? Heck, maybe you want a coveted multimedia dock for the Z10. If you want one and win, I'll send you mine!"
Sorry you and the winner didn't have the same choice in prizes...

camera531

I'm not complaining about losing and I think you missed my point. They chose the winners and seemed to deliberately choose the "dock" winner (even stranger when the dock in his desk was mentioned in the article). Out of the thousands that wanted an actual BB10 device, they kept it cheap and easy. And if you read the article again, it almost seems like it was predetermined.

Thanks Crackberry!!

You made my day :)

Wouldn't it be nice to tell all my friends that I won a Blackberry Z30, all thanks to CrackBerry.com?!

Wish I could have won the Z30 but let me tell you that it feels GREAT!! Thank you CrackBerry for the gift card!!

So Kevin can I purchase one of the other Z10 docks you got 'lying around' please??

playpen007

I cannot believe this Kevin took a nap during Iphone event yesterday. Well, I assume there is nothing to talk about beside finger scan. It absurd they call it Iphone 5s/c.

aloomis76

Anyone else notice that all those cranes are the same colors as the "new" iToy5c?? Maybe, unwillingly, all the luck from them inadvertently got sent to Apple instead of BlackBerry like it was supposed to?

00stryder

Congrats to the winners! Totally missed the part about unlimited entries. Ah well, next time!

Posted via CB10 on my white Z10 & lovin' it!

Holy shit. Didn't know you could comment multiple times haha. Ow well

5C in Chinese is short for fcuk me. 5 sounds like "me" which they use as an abbreviation and c is short for Cao which means Fcuk. So 5C is the shortened version. So in China it reads the new " iPhone fcuk me"
