We're Giving Away a BlackBerry PlayBook a week for Four weeks! Here's your 2nd Chance to Win!



I think Im the last of all my friends to be a die hard Blackberry fan. I come on this website everyday and all I see is information about the Playbook and would actually like to put it to the test. I wanna see what all the hype is about! PICK ME! ;)

I love plabook

the multitasking
7inch form factor
flash capable [the best]
Best display
best audio

It will be the best experience for me if I can have another one for my family in the philippines so I can enjoy video chatting with them while I am here in Mexico.

Thanks in advance team crackberry

you know... when someone wins a playbook, they should have to reenact the scene from "office space" with the printer... cuz damn it feels good to be a gangster!

Already loved PB but the new 2.0 has been really cool. Like getting a whole new playbook in some respects. Crackberry is great because it really does some deep dives in the blackberry world and in the forums which helps me stay abreast of what is new.

I don't have a Playbook *yet* but I'd love to get one and try out the astronomy app! Keep up the great work Crackberry!

Bought one and then took it back. Like to give it another try with OS 2 (not the IBM variety)

Thanks for the contest.

I love the new playbook !!!!! I can finally show it off to friends/family/ and co-workers now that it is fully functional. Integrated e-mail is awesome.

i dont wanna win, i already have a PB 2 bb9900 and 1 bb9790.............................but heck if you're gonna gimme 1............i guess i'll take it.


I REALLY would love one for when I start in the Canadian Forces so my girl and I can talk to eachother (video chat) from over seas or wherever I may train :)

After the 2.0 release, my Playbook is getting so much use that my son needs one also that he could use for school work. Hope to win this awesome device to stay in touch with the family when on the road.

Love the Calendar on the new Os 2.0. And I love Crackberry for always providing excellent and informative articles.

Haven't yet tried OS 2.0 as I unfortunately don't own a Playbook!
That could all change though, CrackBerry is awesome place to discuss new app updates/OS' and more via the forums and also to get all the daily BlackBerry news!
A Playbook will only connect me even more to this website, and it's a pleasant welcome in my lifestyle.

I'd love to win a Playbook! I've played with them a few times and they're great and it would awesome for me for work as I am a Law Clerk so I could do a lot of work on the Playbook!! The new OS 2.0 seems great so far from what I can tell of the reviews, it seems like there are even greater opportunities with 2.0! Either way, love you guys!! You make the Blackberry experience that much sweeter :)

I think Im the last of all my friends to be a die hard Blackberry fan. I come on this website everyday and all I see is information about the Playbook and would actually like to put it to the test. I wanna see what all the hype is about! PICK ME! ;)

I love the playbook because my 2 young boys...4 and 7 use it with ease and there are many options for them as far as games and educational apps.

I come from a very BlackBerry family.......we (the kids) got one for our mom and the poor lady is still struggling with it! haha So, I want a PlayBook! My eldest already has one. I think it's time I have one, too! =)

Dumped my evo to come back to BB, I would gladly dump my ipad to bridge the playbook to my 9930.

I have been following this site for a long time! I haven't really given anything out but I have learned a lot! Thanks crackberry! Keep up the good work! And pick me for the playbook! =)

I have done a lot of good for a lot of people including just launching a new Non Profit society called ThinkGenerously which helps families in need. I spend so much time volunteering within the community and now creating and managing events that a PlayBook would really make it easier to keep up and do more good. My vision is getting weaker and my old Torch is getting harder to use so a PlayBook will be the answer. Please pick me.

The Playbook. A tablet that is a tool not a TOY. A device for a professional and yes I would take another one :)

i'm loving that now this is what the pb should have been like on day 1 RIM is turning things around and this is just the beginning now if we can get some of those TAT apps we keep seeing i think it would bring more people to buy pb over those "other guys"...

Im tired of fighting with my wife and kids for "MY" playbook. I want one for myself!! Please!! Come on CB, help save a family!!

Love the awesomeness of the BEST OF THE WORLD TABLET, PlayBook. With the latest addition of OS2, no doubt that it is the best of its kind.

I love the new email and calendar app. The ability to run android apps and the new bridge update.

Hey Kevin, overhere! Always the guy who buys 20 raffels only to loose.....break the loosing streak? Would love to" bridge" my 9930 to a sweet tab.

P.S. Did you loose some weight?

My playbook has been a great help for me on the road now I need another for my wife. So we can chat while I'm gone. I'm also hoping she can loose the laptop too.

The playbook, once dubbed off as a "failure" has rose up and prove to all consumers and critics that its a worthy contender to battle the iPad. The OS 2.0 has showcased the many features the next BB10 software will use, and finally consumers will appreciate the quality and effort RIM has put in their devices. As they say, once you go crack berry, you never go back.

Already rocking a 32Gb Playbook, that was purchased last year, a week from release date.

Wifey keeps stealing it from me.

Would love to win one from my friends at Crackberry so I can give it to Wifey, and she'll leave my alone!

Thanks, Crackberry...you guys are awesome.

So glad I bought my 32gb Playbook a week before 2.0 came out! So glad I've always been a BlackBerry fanboy! RIM is on the verge of something big! New member to Crackberry.com and loving it!

"Whatever you are, be a good one." -Abraham Lincoln

My Lil Girl has been asking for the Blackberry playbook for a long time,so crackberry as always you give the best stuff away,thanks again crackberry.com is my site to hang out.

The playbook is an Amazing device, with many hide capabilities to be discovered yet...OS has brought many new features, but it still has to grow as an OS...
And btw what Can I say about Crackberry? What can I say about a site that I use to visit 5 or 6 times a day? ;)
greetings from spain!

The playbook is fantastic and moving in the right direction,a free one would be good because then the kids wouldn't have to take mine :)

Keep up the good work crackberry everything i need to find out is always here

I really want to give my gf a playbook as thanksgiving gift
If i win, i can use the 199$ to have a prestige dinner with her

If I won I would use the power of the Playbook to solve all the worlds woes, So naturally you should pick me so you don't have to live with the guilt of damning the world to ruin and torment. I mean really how could you sleep at night knowing that your simple decision has brought the end of millions of lives when you could have been the turning point in the quality of human life on this planet? I am eager to work, I just lack the tools. By all that is good and just on this planet I trust in you to make the right choice.

I also might use it to play some Angry Birds, but only after the whole saving the world thing

well I didnt win and congratulations to the winner but I will keep trying and trying to win a playbook so I can join the playbook nation!!

I'm loving the fact... Playbook is getting momentum and I'm glad of being a earlier adopter which mean I'm a faithfull rim fan, I hope to be selected for the next free playbook for believe in rim when no one did!! Come on kevin...make it happen!!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping to win one of the 4 PlayBook and I have 3 more chances left. This is contest #2 and will I be lucky this time? Please pick me.

I'm excited about the PlayBook again. Loving OS 2.0 messaging and side-loading android apps we've been waiting for since the PB came out. I added Xfinity Mobile last night. The Kindle app a few days before that. Feels like the PB is reborn.

Thank the blackberry gods for second chances!!!! What I love about the playbook are its capabilities of making me a smarter and more handsome person! I'm shooting emails like a maniac, going up to random people and asking them for their information just so I could add it to my contacts, and the calendar?! Oh the calendar.......my life has never looked so busy! Big ol' numbers showing me I actually have a life?! Best feeling I have ever had! So why do I need another playbook you might ask? Well my niece just made her dad buy her an ipad2, shaking my head, and she has never looked so bored in her entire life! Muahahahahahahahah! So when I got my playbook in the mail, I showed it off to her and guess what? She wants to sell her ipad2 and buy herself a playbook! Yes, she has been converted. Well her dad said no and now she doesn't want to use the ipad for anything, I know, such depression! So please make me the winner so I could give the gift of life to this poor child! Gracias.

Starving (and acquiring debt) student want's a playbook from the best Blackberry site on Earth. Keep up the excellent work Crackberry!

I got two friends from work to get Playbooks. The first one actually talked the second one into doing it. Anna told Terry "Now I know why Mark is so crazy about his Playbook! I love it!". Oh yeah baby.

BlackBerry got OS2.0 right.

I've enjoy my Playbook from day one but OS2 is a game changer for those that don't have a BB phone.

If you have a Playbook, show it around. Lets double the base this quarter! Go RIM!

I would love to win this week contest, really love the blackberry playbook, its the perfect size i can take to work and to school.

I would love to finally have a PlayBook of my own to integrate into my daily activities. Thanks!!

I work in a large company and have a company-issued BB Torch. I recently purchased a Playbook and sweet-talked my system administrator to enable my serial data port access permissions in the enterprise server so that I could use the Bridge. That was pretty good, only made better since I downloaded OS 2.0 for the Playbook. I have everyone else in the company drooling when they see what I can do now! I would love another Playbook for my son, who is now working as a co-op student at my company.

I want one so bad. I had one but life just kicked me while I thought that things were good. Had to return it to cover the cost of my wifes blunder with the car :/

I love my 9000 and my PB. With Crackberry, I learned what was up and down with BlackBerry. I have applied to RIM for work because of what I've read and liked on the site. I want the playbook to give it to another sceptic.

Hopefully me :) love crackberry, it is my great source about blackberry I can find pretty much everything on this site including great contest I once won the smart case for my BlackBerry Tour :)

What I'm lovin' about the Playbook... well that's a tough one as I would need one to know. So if you could give me one, then I can tell you. :)

What I'm going to love is the all around sleeknes of the device (size, build, shape, etc).

NO WAY... CrackBerry! Why couldn't you have waited ONE more day before starting up! We could have had the same birthday!! :(

1) I am pretty much in shock that CB.com's birthday is the 26th and mine is the 27th of February.. How did I not notice this?!

EITHER WAY, I would completely DIE if I could get a BlackBerry 10 phone when it comes out (it would be the BEST birthday present *well late birthday present* I will have ever gotten in my entire life) [And don't worry, when I say I would completely *DIE*, I mean it in a good way, so don't be turned away because of that].. Better yet, how about a BB10 phone that is SIGNED by Kevin!!! :D

It was just last night at my family party that I was defending RIM... I actually got my cousin and my aunt to buy a BlackBerry over an iPhone! (Aunt recently and Cousin a few years ago) My uncle brought up that he has heard in the media that was RIM going under, and thanks to CrackBerry I was able to completely defend them [and my love for BlackBerry](I actually used the last article which was posted by Chris Umiastowski to help defend my case *great read btw*)

Thank you CrackBerry, if it weren't for you guys, I would have never been opened up to the world of BlackBerry.. If it wasn't for this site, I would not be able to express my pure addiction to others like me!

I would LOVE to get a BlackBerry 10 phone as I am absolutely IN LOVE with my PlayBook and a BB10 phone [With QNX] will be JUST what I need to finally shut people up when they go on and complain about RIM "going under".

I check CrackBerry every morning when I wake up, and refresh Social Feeds throughout the day, excited like a kid in a candy store, hoping for a new exiting article to read, or video to watch. Some people just don't understand that CrackBerry isn't just a site, it's an addiction. But one that has made my life much more organized and convenient!

I would have asked for a trip as I would be honored to meet the CrackBerry team and I have a feeling that this BlackBerry World 2012 is going to be a game changer, but it starts up right around when my final exams for college begin. As much as I want to go, it wouldn't be possible :( In two more years when I'm out I'll scrape together some money and fly down for sure!

Love you guys (and gals) and thanks for everything! Oh yeah, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Alex (:

Reason why Playbook is better: you can have BB offering and yet access Android apps in a safer and more secure environment.


Would love to get another one so my wife would leave my PB alone. Love my Torch with the PB and the New 2.0 OS.

I didn't win the first week but I hope I can get it the following week. This would help me with the business that I run and save me lots of time.

I love checking Crackberry daily for all my blackberry news and updates! I also love the chances to win great prizes and discounts!

Well I don't care much for the stand alone email since I use bridge with my 9930. I love the new look and feel of os2 and the increase in apps.

I would love to have a Playbook for my wife so we can video chat while I am away from home. I got another baby on the way guys I need this!

While playing with it at the local store, i just love the way it feels in my hands. Sturdy yet easy to handle. OS 2.0 finally brought in some much missing features, IMO the playbook is now absolutely the best 7" tablet on the market. Thanks CB for maintaining such a strong focus on RIM products!


i was one of those early adopters who bought the 16gb version at full price right at launch in fact...my playbook is the model where the power button was so recessed into the housing that you almost needed a pin to use the power button unlike these newer versions that even come with a free slip case....smh

if i get another 16gb version that would mean that i could finaly have a 32gb playbook...sort of LOL
please let me win..please?

Ok, so I lost my patience, and just went out and picked up a Playbook for myself. But now I have a new problem. I need to get one for my mom!!! She is driving me crazy!

So I don't need to win one, but if I do I might actually be able to get some quality time with mine. :)

put me in! i already own a playbook but it would be awesome to get one for my wife. then i wont have to get that dreaded ipad 3!!


I would like to win this Playbook for my son. He has Aspergers and there has been a lot of studies lately on the benefits of tablets for kids with autism. It would REALLY come in handy for us!
Pick us Pleeeeeeze!

My old man, has finally decided to go blackberry and is excited about it. While I help him decide on what berry...this would be a great Adder for him as he is blown away with my playbook but can't justify the cash for both a berry and PB. Cheers! and way to go Crackberry.

Congratulations scooby125! Enjoy.
Help me CrackBerry to be efficient & stay organize. I know this PlayBook will help. I trying hard to get my hands on one and I'm going crazy with all the imformative posts on CrackBerry.com. Keep them coming!

I only need my playbook to complete my BB colection had a flip, a curve, my beloved bold 9700 and now I'm wating for my 9900, but I need my PlayBook! So come on!!! Also loving CB check it everyday for updates, and I always find what I need on the forums, great site!

One PlayBook per household is simply not enough! We desperately need a 2nd, but, alas are unable to afford one, well, since my wife's accident and all. Her recovery time would go a lot quicker if she had her OWN PlayBook.

(ok, so she broke her arm while walking the dog. The dog says it was an accident and I believe him)

We love MY PlayBook and Crackberry!

Congratulations to the winner of the new Playbook. (grrrr) wish it was me, but I have 3 more chances.

I'm loving the message integrating, twitter, email - the true to life BB message experience, but what I'm really loving about the PB is the potential that TAT has in store for this bad boy!
