Last Chance: Only one day left in our BlackBerry Z30 contest!!

By Kevin Michaluk on 30 Aug 2013 08:33 am EDT

With the holiday weekend coming up we just wanted to give a quick reminder that you only have until tomorrow, August 31st at midnight to enter to win a new BlackBerry Z30. We have tons of comments already but I'm pretty sure that we can hit the 10k mark before the contest deadline. 

We haven't really heard anything new on the Z30 front over the last week or two but there isn't really much left to know either. We've seen it on the outside and inside on plenty of occasions so unless someone at BlackBerry is the greatest magician of them all, there won't be too many surprises come launch day. Speaking of launch day - no official date has been set for the release but whoever is lucky enough to win our contest will get an IOU from me for a new Z30 and we'll get it shipped out as soon as it's released.

So if you haven't already, head over to the original contest post and get your comment in for a chance to win.

Last Chance: Only one day left in our BlackBerry Z30 contest!!



Just putting this here for you all to see . . the article says you have to "Return to the original post" for your entry to count . . . just an fyi cuz some of you are posting as though you want to be entered and its not going to count if you put it here . . .

PlayBook is great, just use the Z30 as a hot spot and away you go, connect your PlayBook and you have yourself a fresh Tablet experience. Personally I cannot do without my PlayBook. It still outclasses most if not all Android tablets. As for iPads, no thanks, not having flash support killed it for me by far.

Posted while peeking and flowing on my incredible BBQ10!

I'm still disappointed with yesterday's news that Q10 sales may be worse than expected. BlackBerry needs to go on steroids to get back into the game

Posted via CB10

That is because BlackBerry has to move away from phones like the Q10 and the Q5! They are good phones but should be the exception not the norm for BlackBerry and it's new OS. It kind of defeat the purpose to dedicate your time and resources to create a new OS and then come out with devices that are basically supped up versions of the same legacy devices no one wants to buy anymore!

You can still make devices with full QWERTY keyboards like the Q10 and Q5 but in limited numbers. The Z10 and the Z30 are the way to go. If they had made an entry level full touchscreen device, lets say hmmmm I don't know...the Z5 or something, then placed the Z10 as a mid level device and the Z30 as a top tier one, accompanied by an aggressive and well though out marketing campaign, the story might have been quite different than what it is today!

It is hard to take BlackBerry serious when they keep talking about moving forward and changing while at the same time they think and act as though they are still tied to the past, especially a past that has brought them to the current situation!

"Keep Moving"?!?! More like "Keep Moving But First Wait A While"...

Aw c'mon, no one? I want a Q10, desperately!

I do agree with your other points though. I think they should offer both models, but perhaps right now they need more focus on the touch-only model (and perhaps shouldn't have waited that long between the Z10 and the Q10).

Then again, what the hell do I know about running a company?

The Q10's flaw is the antiquated tiny screen. It should have been at least as big as the screen on the original iPhone. :(

It would have looked far more modern with a larger screen as well.

In fact, the Q10 should have had a more modern design beyond just the screen size. They should have gone back to the drawing board with it instead of essentially replicating the 9900 style look. They figured they could just call it in and churn out a minor design refresh. Pure laziness and complete disconnection from the reality of how much the average US consumer hates the BlackBerry brand.

The Q5 is an abomination of design. I don't care that it's their "value" model phone.
There are plenty of cheap but fancy looking Androids out there, so that excuse doesn't cut it for me.

It just represents a HUGE misread of the marketplace on their part.

NO ONE (save BlackBerry loyalists) wants a phone that looks like an old BlackBerry. And there are unfortunately, not enough of us loyalists to keep them afloat on our own :(

I think that's why I love my Q10 an absurd amount. I feel like it was made for a certain kind of person (and that certain kind of person is me!) Myself and others always have the option to jump ship and get a more popular phone, but I don want one of those phones. I want my Q10! Gimme 10.2 as well on an official release to add the icing on the cake...

Posted while peeking and flowing on my incredible BBQ10!

Q10 is OK but the price not. People don't expect a qwerty phone to be 500-600 euro and it's to much but 429-449 will be a beter price and the Q5. Phoe the Q5 is a no go for sale here and we only selling the black version.

I also think this is time to upgrade the Z10 with 1,5 Ghz processor, 12 Mp camera F 1,8 and with 32 Gb memory. (call it z11) 4.2 inch

The Z30 must have , 32Gb memory and also a 12 Mp camera F 1,8 and 5 inch or just upgrade.

At least show of the same specs as iphone because the OS is allready beter.

The Z10 and the Q10 are perfect devices to show off BlackBerry 10. The issue is BlackBerry should have released BOTH Z10 and Q10 at the same time to give people CHOICE.
The big mistake was releasing the Q5, they should have went for a Z5 instead, a full touch, to attract the iPhone crowd. Not sure about the boards directions since launch, but common sense must eventually take over sometime or another.

In order of release: This is how it should have played out:
Z10/Q10 - Globally
Z5 - Globally
Q5/Z30 - Globally
Then one more device, which I believe is a BB10 based 10" Tablet for just before Christmas...
This is how it should have played out, and with proper marketing (Not this nonsense and failed keep moving crap), they would have sold as of today 5x what they've sold today had they done what I've suggested.

How do you choose one from 10k? Are you reading all comments? Or what system/tool are you using? :D

Believe in the potential that is BB10

Unleash the Z30!!!!!

Stop the clock and end the agony....give it to me, give it to me, give it....

A Z30, what an awesome prize! A tricked out Z10 or a Z10 on steroids? I'd love to have one to try out - be first for Africa too!

I want a Z30 because I could give it to my 15 year old son, thereby indoctrinated a new generation into the BB ethos. He's also a lot more popular than I was at his age, so it might even become a cool thing at his school. The hand(set) that rocks the cradle is the hand(set) that rules the world, as they say. :)

It's my birthday tmrw so pls let me win it! Oh and not to mention that I'm such a big BBRY fan I need to get my whole family to change to bb!

Posted via CB10

Blackberry is the only smartphone that I ever owned. It is the only smartphone that has a keyboard and it's smartphone is very user friendly. Unlike other smart phones, it is very easy to setup for emails and its apps are very user friendly.

Let me win please! :) I want to try the a new blackberry fully touch screen.

Go Crackberry team! :")

Posted via CB10

Well Crackberry my family and I went through a house fire and I had insurance on my z10 so I got a new one my mom had a torch 9810 and now she has a Samsung galaxy s3 and she doesn't like it so if I got the phone I would give it to her

Posted via CB10

Well let's see with me Zed alone I have had 14 friends d's switch to BB10. Most were android but there were a few iPhone users too. With a Z30 I can convert the world. Alicia Keys watch out I'm coming for your job.

Zed 10 - In your face VZW

Pick me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought a bb9900 two years ago and it has perfect look. But, it has few applications. Looking forward to z30. Hope it can save bb.

I really need to win the blackberry Z30 because, as a student of history and international studies, that also manages tourism Facebook and Twitter accounts, I need the Z30 because I need a device that would aid my ability to take good quality pictures and at d same time upload them online swiftly which I know d Z3 would be capable of, beyond that I need d Z30 because here in Nigeria d use of BBM video chat is now enhancing the connectivity rate among BB10 users, and dis would largely help boost my research and career in tourism, history and international studies also with d fact that I would not be able to afford the Z30 financially. Thank you CB, thank you BB.

not sure if i entered.. can't remember anything without my Blackberry ;)

Best of luck everyone

As a long suffering Sprint customer still using a BlackBerry 9670 (Style), I am ready to win a new BlackBerry that wasn't created in the stone ages of smartphones! How I long to be as cool as all the other BB users, but with my BB Style, I'm the kid with the wiffle bat........please awaken my inner pride and bequeath me a BB Z30! Thank you.........

Love to win this new phone because it has bigger screen and come with official BB 10.2.

Posted via CB10

Hey, gotta have it. I've been waiting for the larger screen and 10.2 Can you please bless me with the merchandise. :-)

Posted via CB10

So my niece, who is crazy about BlackBerry, can have my z10, and I can keep the z30.

Posted via CB10

I love how the majority of the posters have obviously not even read the post, and are unaware that they should not be posting here, but rather in at the original article. If you post here thinking that you're in the contest, good for you! Make my odds of winning that much greater.

I thought this was a post and see if you Win, not a post and complain. Pick me pick me... I want that Z30

Posted via CB10

It will be a blessing if somehow a divine intervention, can allow me to win, so that I can give away my z 10 as a gift.

Posted via CB10

Really! I really want the 4G network of that device! Now i'm using Q5 SQR100-3 (only support 2G & 3G). I'm curious with the 4G LTE network! So please, give it to me!

Posted via CB10

I'm a die hard fan of blackberry and to be honest with you guys I'm still using the legendary BB Curve 9360 till now since 2011! Can't wait to have Z30 on my palm and that would be the best birthday gift ever if I win this! =))

I've been a BlackBerry enthusiast most of my adult life. I'm 24 years old now but my first smartphone was a BlackBerry Pearl and I absolutely loved it. When I got a little older I was stuck on BlackBerry and eventually upgraded to the curve. Keep in mind, I come from a "humble" background and I can't afford to replace smartphones with the snap of a finger. When my curve crapped out (meaning the center ball broke, starting glitching and turned off at random times) I gave up my curve and joined the iPhone trend. At the time it was the 3G model and I thought it was an awesome device, but it never compared to BlackBerries and their ease of use and awesome keyboard. As of today I still long for the original BB Brickbreaker and I CANNOT find a game as addictive and as fun. During these times I eventually jumped from phone to phone, i.e. iPhone 3g, HTC Aria, and lastly Samsung Galaxy S3. However, when I heard BlackBerry was coming out with a full touchscreen Z10, I immediately threw out the S3 and went straight for the Z10 without hesitation because I knew BlackBerry wouldn't disappoint. I'm a proud Z10 owner and a proud BlackBerry customer. I carry my phone with pride and it stands out among all the iPhone and Galaxy/Android junkies; and a Z30 would make me even prouder. I would love to be a Z30 owner but even as a Z10 owner I am still happy because I am back to BlackBerry, which is my choice of smartphone now, and forever to come.

Posted via CB10

Former iOS user, now a proud Z10 owner. Been talking to many friends the benefits of BB10 and how it's the next gen OS.

Really truly appreciate Blackberry 10 as a daily driver to get things done and swipe a little Angry Birds or Oregon Trail here and there.

My wife and son are both disabled and this phone would allow them to view emails and media much easier. We are huge BlackBerry fans.

Posted via CB10

I told wife i'll win the q5, I didn't so ill try this one. Gave a long write up then. Just going to say, I really want a BlackBerry for the wife so she leaves my z10 alone!!

Posted via CB10

I not only WANT a Z30, I NEED a Z30 because I am an addict!! Give it to ME!! -- Help a brother out please!!

Posted via CB10

Please, I have been with BB since 2002 and will be for as long as they make outstanding Devices.

I don't know why you like it the same z10 but with better specs, the thing that is holding blackberry is BBM, that will be on android and iPhone, so am sticking with the z10 for BBM and what's app because of it great keyboard, and beside with my galaxy s4 for Internet, feutiers, great battery. Great 13 megamixl camera, good quality screen (super amould 441 ppi) .

Posted via CB10

I Love my Q10, but i tink i need a Bigger Screen for web navegations and Play games, please give me the first Z30 in Venezuela

Posted via CB10

Love BB, just bought some stocks the other day too! Z30, I want to show that baby off to my clients! Gifting one would be icing on the cake!

Posted via CB10

I have been a blackberry user for over 6yrs. From 9000, 9700, 9900 and now the Q10. I skipped the Z10 cos I prefer the super amoled screen. The Z30 comes with super amoled and I will love to own one asap.

Posted via CB10

I want it so I ça give my z10 to my father to have a young new cranberry addict!!!!

Posted via CB10

A Z30 would so complement the Fleet! In fact it would become my Flagship Device. Should that come to pass? , I would pledge to attempt iSheeple conversions on a daily basis!

Cheers and for once, have a great weekend applies to pretty much the whole planet!

DilBit Powered Q10... 10.2 where ya 2 bye??

My daughter has an iPod Touch, my son has an iPad. My wife has an S3... my BlackBerry Curve gets no respect and is a constant butt of jokes in the household... Maybe the Z30 will when back the respect I deserve for sticking with the company in dark and desolate times!

Posted via CB10

my first bb was 8900 it was awesome my second one was storm 9500 then the 9550 the i had the curve 9300 and i use to have the torch 9800 and now i have the curve 9380 now it will be my dream come true if a win the z10 i just love bb phone i bought them all just to have them you wlll say am like a bb freak like my friends tell me but at the end they are the ones who buy them from me i would love to have the z10 would stay quite some time on the zedge sight to download some theme some ringtones on mobile 9 for my past bb,s am just a fan of the bb

Well let me try again and see if Kevin will let me win this time....i want to be the first in my country to have a Z30

time upon a once, I planned to get a Z10 but won a Z30. Was it a dream or precognition? It will all come about and revealed in the sands of the Universal Om-ness.

"Meow" says my cat. "Bark" says my dog. I say "stop fighting over the Z30, we have not won it yet!"

Posted via CB10

Please please please pick me please please please...Ok, I will wait...long live CrackBerry and its minions...Z30 compliment my Z10 like a happy family...together at last, so please pick me please...:)
