Superbowl 46

Today is Superbowl Sunday, and if you're into football, then there is no doubt you are anxiously awaiting kick-off for the big game. Even if you're not into football, you may still be watching for the commercials, or just eating wings and pizza while your friends get worked up into a frenzy over each play. In any case, CrackBerry wants to know if you are using your smartphone or tablet to keep up with the game, if you're not able to watch it on a TV somewhere. Vote in the poll above, and let us know in the comments below what your strategy is if you're away from the TV and trying to get that football fix.

CrackBerry Asks: Are you using a mobile device to keep track of the Superbowl?


I answered "what's a superbowl", but what I really meant is "when is the superbowl?". I only just found out a few hours ago it was today, which kind of goes to show how much I care...

I am pointedly ignoring ESPN and NBC today. Maybe I'll go grocery shopping while the streets are clear...

Heading up to the Shamrock & Thistle pub with my family to watch the game. I'll be keeping Scoremobile open on my PlayBook for stats and etc. :)

It'll be a cold day in H-E double hockey sticks before I take my PB into a bar. Unless it were a fern bar or something, but that's not my style.

Actually, I will be using my iPhone to participate in the Chevy ad contest. They have a companion app for iOS and Android. Not sure about others. Might be worth checking out.

37% voted on "What’s a super bowl". That’s awesome. It shows that demographically smart people have BB's, with better things to do then just sit around and watch a game.

Actually smart people rock Android. Which is why the bb community cant even form a team clever enough to unlock the playbook's boot loader lol.. All the poll proves is that a large percent of RIM's demographic are the type who rather watch glee

Definitely would put no got better things to do. Sitting on my arse looking at the wall would be more entertaining than this, stop start game.

If it weren't for the ads I douvbt the game would get much air time around the world. The news this morning was all about how costly the ads would be this year. No mention on who was playing.

Just using my Playbook to view the commercials via YouTube as we don't get to see them in the great white north!

Going to agree with you, currently watching the game, then after going looking for to ads with my playbook after!! We only get fiat and chevy ads it seems!!!

Yea, mostly watching the game for the commercials. Not a fan of either surfing CrackBerry, killing time till the next set of commercials lol.

why cant we watch the game on the playbook. its online to watch if you goto when i goto the site on the pb i cant watch it live

Couldnt watch it online with the PB... NBC was streaming for US online but it uses silverlight... :\

in my country, and most others around the world, football is where you actually use your feet to kick a ball and not pick it up and run with it! its here on the BBC for my country to watch but the game is severly long!!! it takes hours to get through the game!! so the questionnaire was a "whats a superbowl" from me.

BlackBerry's are for the self-assured type ;)

Connected my laptop to the TV and watched it via live stream.. This way i got to avoid the shitty commercials and gay halftime shows. Once again my playbook was useless

Epic touchdown by Giants! What was he thinking ... gotta fall before the line to stall time.... but I wanna score ...oh no my ass is already over the line and gravity has a hold on it!
