The Research In Motion marketing machine has been busy since the release of the BlackBerry PlayBook. Aside from all the VIP events they've been hosting as of late, they've also loaded up some Peterbilt trucks with a bevy of PlayBooks, PlayBook accessories and luckily -- some PlayBook schwag. Yesterday, one of those Peterbilt trucks stopped in Arizona and Michelle and I were able to go ahead and check it out. 

Needless to say, it was a pretty cool experience. If you're not already a BlackBerry PlayBook owner and get to step into the PlayBook experience truck you're in for quite a time. Jump on past the break for more info and a chance to win some PlayBook schwag.

BlackBerry PlayBook Demo

As you start your tour you're greeted and invited to enter to win a BlackBerry PlayBook when all the tours are over. You'll then move on into the truck where you'll get to sit down and go through a quick demo and crash course in learning the specs and general usage of the BlackBerry PlayBook which --is pretty awesome especially if you're not already a BlackBerry PlayBook owner. Walk in the door, and get handed a PlayBook? Sweet!

Need For Speed

After the demo, you're set loose on the bevy of PlayBooks around in the truck -- all of which are live and connected to the internet. You'll get to play games, download apps, take pics, videos and whatever else your heart desires within the line of reason. You'll also see plenty of video demos and get an up close look at some of the BlackBerry PlayBook accessories that are available.

BlackBerry PlayBook Accessories

All in all, a great time for BlackBerry fans. No, you're not gonna find any of PlayBooks there running native email or the Android emulator but that's quite alright for now. The staff on hand are friendly and knowledgable about the products they are demoing and while you're pretty much free to roam -- they're not far away should you have any questions. 

BlackBerry PlayBook Schwag

In speaking with the folks demoing the items at the event, (Hi Lisa.. Hi Donna) we not so slyly managed to get them to admit the obivous. Yes, they've certainly heard of CrackBerry. Not surprising really but, awesome! Lisa and Donna also hooked us with some schwag, and in the spirit of CrackBerry -- we're gonna give it away. One lucky winner out there will win the BlackBerry PlayBook hat, PlayBook screen cleaner and we'll also toss in those sexy CrackBerry stickers. Drop us a note in the comments and we'll pick a winner for next Monday.
