Reminder: Enter now to win a custom-painted device from CrackBerry and ColorWare!


If I won it, I would drive to Bryan Habana's (highest practising try scorer in rugby) house and give him the Springbok coloured Z10 I designed! He can proudly use that baby!

Blackberry is regarded as the Pride of Canadian mobile communications, as far as I, and the rest of Canada should be concerned.

I am undoubtedly proud to use my Z10 and will continue to do so.

Posted via my Z10, cause Virgin Mobile and Flextronics are screwing me over.

Please choose me and let me show to my friends that I was never wrong in choosing Z10. Let me show them how cool blackberry phones are. =)

Did anybody read the requirements? You don't need to write pick me, you need to create your own design.

I guess I will be the only one following the instructions and I will win!! Muhahaha!!

I think I did read them correctly, haha. Staying sleek with the dark gray back and sharp steel body, strictly business!

The chances of me winning this are infinitesimal at best, but nevertheless, I torture myself by entering

Why BlackBerry don't play with colour like this way. Only black or white. Red Z10 only for developers. :(

Am I the only one that thinks there should be 2 winners, considering there are 2 options with the z10 and 4 on the q10? we all know a q10 is going to win it right? lol!!!

These coloured concepts look great. Whatever new models emerge it will be well worth BlackBerry's time to consider these when targeting the youth market, now that it's only a matter of time before BB10 catches on and is considered a viable alternative to the current top contenders.

You can't improve on Black on Black !

*Just stating - really, don't pick me* :p

Man! BlackBerry really needs to tighten up the Browser function, as I can't design a phone using my Z10 browser.

Kinda seems ironic.

Don't know if anyone said it or, but the Z10 lovers are kinda getting the short end of the stick. They have WAY more options for the Q. Hopefully that will change soon, but doubtful for this contest. I was hopin to do the Z since I already have a Q.

Thank you! I mentioned earlier that I thought there should be 2 winners. (one of each basically) I thought I was the only one who thought that wasn't fair. It's completely obvious that they will pick a q10 :( ill die of shock if a z10 wins. Lol! Poor z10s :(

I just would like to have one because I'm a proud Canadian and proud of BlackBerry for all there hard work they put into my sweet Ass z10 I have thanks cb

I'm on a CDMA network, so these GSM phones are useless to me (I have no desire to attempt to win one merely to sell it on ebay; call me lazy) and so I won't be entering. But I do wonder: The directions for entering explicitly include a step whereby you share your design on Twitter with a specified hashtag. If one were to submit a design but skip that step (perhaps because one is not a Twitterer), would that honestly disqualify the entry? I'm curious just in case there's a future contest with CDMA devices as the prizes.

Any colour that glows in the dark? Or bright yellow / orange like emergency worker clothes?
