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



Blackberry must and will live on! Please let me give a shiny new Playbook the attention it deserves! ...long time Blackberry owner and first time CrackBerry poster!

I would love to win the playbook to give to my wife she is not a blackberry fan but she stills my playbook all the time and likes it lol

Crackberry is such a fun innovative site with ACTION. I truly appreciate learning as much as I do from all things Crackberry.

I love the playbook due to the fact I can hand it to my wife and she can navigate without my help. She's not a techy or even cares much for this but it just works and is easy.

I would love to pair this with my BB bold 9900. I have been dreaming to own one. Blackberry all the way!!!

I love the browser and native flash support. i'm not a dedicated programmer, but i find very useful to compose apps able to run on any HTML5 ready devices, or using Flash as well. The playbook can do that and more.

CrackBerry has been instrumental to my BB experience. Thanks for all the hard work to the entire staff, and all the people who comment on the blogs and forums!

March 7 is my birthday. What a way to celebrate with a brand spanking new BlackBerry playbook by RIM. Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday to me! Happy Playbook for meeeeeeeee. Happy birthday to me.


One down, the next one is mine! (bares teeth, makes snarling sounds, thumps chest).
Now what I like about Crackberry, the community at large, from fanboys to useful information, it's all pretty good, and the best part is, anything I don't like, I just ignore it. Keeps me sane.

4 chances is a lot. i realy want one of these... just to show it off and let people know that RIM still has it and the os in phone form(bb10) will be even better.

I love CrackBerry on the web and facebook because I get great help with my Blackberry issues; as well as great tips.

I love video chat, so winning one for my wife would be awesome. That way, we can video chat while I'm at work and she's at home with our newborn. :D

I really like the native e-mail and integrated messages. I would like to have my BBM on the Playbook but I'm willing to wait a lil longer...

Pick ME!!!...Pick ME!!!...Pick ME!!!


What I love about OS 2.0: the Contacts App. Loving the 'links' feature and how it brings in twitter, facebook and Linkedin. Awesome.

The improvments in OS2 are great. My non-tech wife is interested now. Hopefully I can win this for her! Thanks Crackberry!

Hey CB!

I would love to win the Playbook! I have one and love the new Playbook 2.0! If iwin, it would save me from buying my girlfriend a new Ipad 3 lol. I also own a few RIMM shares and winning the Playbook could help relieve some of my loss.....

*single. Is that the correct comment ??

I'm lovin' 2.0 for email, improved apps and finally Overdrive to access my local library.

Crackberry is the premier site for all things PB. Keep it comin'.

I'd love to win one and be able to use it in school in place of the old fashioned notebook and pen! I keep seeing the hype about the 2.0 all over CrackBerry and being able to experience it would be great!

Hello Crackberry,

Pick me please, as incentive, if I will I will record my happy dance for you which you are free to post online!!!

And between you and me, I have a pretty good happy dance!

Thanks CB!!!

I love the fact that it can easily fit inside of my purse allowing me to take it anywhere! Plus its a great device that allows true multitasking, native email, contacts and an awesome browser! I enjoy using the remote control function as well to control my playbook! I really hope I WIN!!

Hello CB!

The only thing I'd like to say about the Playbook is that it is the ONLY tablet that I've seriously considered buying.. I've used Samsung tablets, iPad, Acer's, Toshiba, Thinkpad(ya.. they made one), and even the HP TouchPad. Yet, every time I walk by a PB display, it's the only one I actually see the value in taking it home with me.

Being a full-time student in college with a part-time job, it is impossible for me to afford any luxury.
If I won this playbook, I would probably cry.

One thing I'd also like to say about CrackBerry. You guys are my homepage. I always watch the un-boxings, the news stories and keep up with what's new with RIM and on the Mobile market. You're part of my morning, and my evening when I'm done with class or work. Keep on it and NEVER GO AWAY O_O

Love this technology
BES'm All I say, let the policies deal with the rest :-)

Be way better with a PB bridged to my 9900 .... pleeeeeaaaassssse

you guys are awesome :D wish RIM also gave freebies like this once in a while :p

do i want one? of course i do :D

Thanks for the great contest CrackBerry! I love the predicted text, the remote control from my Bold 9900. BlackBerry for life.

What do I love about 2.0?, I. Love that I can get my exchange email, and all my enterprise stuff is password protected. Great feature.

Curve 8330 CDMA (eww, I know, u/g to Torch soon!)
Winner of EA Mobile SE Playbook - rockin' it!

Spent this past week at a customer site. Didn't have to turn on my laptop once. Used the PlayBook for all my needs for the week. Loving it!!!

My dad wanted an iPad but seeing how Playbook OS 2.0 has blown everyones mind with its features, I think this would be the perfect gift for him.
Do what you do best crackberry

wouldn't it be cool to win a Playbook on the day iPad 3 is launched? i love the multitasking and gestures. now with mail & calendars, it has arrived!

What I love the best about the OS2.0 is the easyness of running some android apps like google maps where you can save up to 10 parts of a map for when you don't have data available in bad areas

I was a Blackberry guy until I got tired of waiting for AT&T to release the 9900. I switched to a Galaxy s2. Recently I've been missing the Blackberry. A new Playbook would definitely get me back into the BB way of things.

I just love how they got rid of the categories and now lets you create your own and more sections. Combine that with how you can create folders, organizing your apps and files in the PlayBook is simpler.

** Besides all the great features in OS2.0 (remote, all in one unified/social inbox, native email. Calendar, contacts,etc.) I'm Loving the fact that BlackBerry and the PlayBook are finally getting the credit they deserve, & they are finally getting good press after a long attack of all the negativity. Even more awesome the BlackBerry PlayBook was the #1 Selling Tablet at Best Buy & Future Shops of Canada! And of course I Love CrackBerry for being the #1 site for CrackBerry Users & Abusers! #BeBold. We Need #ToolsNotToys!

My first Crackberry post! My birthday is 7 March too. Seriously. I'll be 25. Yup a quarter century... :O
I have an iPhone. I've never owned any Blackberry product but I'm obsessed with the Blackberry Playbook. I can't afford one even at the discounted price. I fell in love with it whilst using it at Best Buy Canada store. I've been reading Crackberry.com for about a month and a half now. I've finally broken free from Apple's grip. I've had the 3G, 3GS, and now the 4. I didn't fall for their 4S garbage. I was obsessed with Apple. I'm so sick and tired of people bashing Blackberry. I admit I'm not a fan of their phones ( although the Blackberry Bold 9900 is quite elegant and sexy). I'm holding out on a phone upgrade until Blackberry 10 is released to see if I'll jump ship (assuming I'll be able to afford one - former military and now making much less until I get a better career). Even though I do not own a Playbook, I've been vigorously promoting it. I often go to Best Buy and Future Shop just to play with one. I tried to update the display models to OS 2.0 but no such luck. I'll continue to promote. :)
Go Blackberry!

I would love to win this Playbook, as my daughter travels all over the United States and it would be great to Video Chat with her.
Maybe this would win her back to the BB devices as she left the BB to a Moto Rzor.... eeeeekkkk!!

I think a PlayBook would be cool. A perfect match for my 9900. Left BlackBerry a while back for Android. Came back to the 9900 because BlackBerry just works. My employer gave me an ipad (64gb Wi-Fi 3G) and it's fun ... But a toy mostly. I need a solid work device (that can be fun too). So, like everyone else, I'd like to win, please.

I love CrackBerry and the new playbook os and pair both of those with my bold and you've got a killer combination! Now if I had another playbook, I could get mine back from my wife! Please let me win CrackBerry!

It's simple... I'm loving the whole PlayBook Experience & want to share it with my kids!!!

Here's hoping for a win!!!


Let's hope my second roll of the dice works out better.

Let's go BlackBerry. I hope 2012 can prove the haters wrong and government agencies like ATF that sacrificing security for ease is an umwise choice. Let's see BB10 have the best of both worlds.

I'd love to have one, I still follow crackberry and don't have a blackberry, just because you guys still rock.

It's SLEEK, SEXY, HANDY, ENTERTAINING. What more could you ask for? It's EVERYTHING in ONE. ;)
Gotta love this playbook!

I think blackberry is the best hands down at everything and crackberry.com is great at informing is about the blackberrys we love to use.

I need another playbook on my night stand so happy OK me up ;)

Many thanks for the cool contests and a great website.

The PlayBook is the ultimate tablet and it can't be touched by iClone or Scamdroid. My wife owns an Android tablet and I would not dare touch it. It's useless as far as I'm concerned. Give me another PlayBook so I can free her from her virtual chains. PLEASE!!!

Another Playbook would be welcomed to a growing family of a Bold 9900, Torch 9800, Bold 9700 and 2 PB's!!!

I absolutely love the size, the black-frame look, the solid OS 2.0 and the wicked screen brilliance and resolution! For me it's the perfect pocket portfolio. I'd like to buy a bunch and hand them out as my photo books!

well, i can't tell what i like about the playbook, since i don't own one yet.... but cb is where i come first when i get online.

I love to have a BB PB so that I can keep up with everything while on the run at work and to be able to have fun on the web especially since the PB has flash and IPad does not, that is the reason I will never buy an IPad.....It's BB PB or Bust.

ive had a blackberry for 10 years now! never used another phone and recently paid for the tour instead of getting the iphone free! playbook would be my next addition to the family!

I would love to have a blackberry playbook to accompany my blackberry 10 device when its released. Would love to get the hang of it with my blackberry now.

Not to mention, its my b-day on the 6th :D

Not sure who *single* is, but let him/her know that its a perfect size for my jacket pocket and i've read a ton of e-books since I got it.
Having a second one would be great for video use.

Boy, would I LOVE to have this Playbook. Why ? because IMO Blackberry devices are the best. Much better than those "i" devices....and I just gotta have it !!!

Great! Another chance to win one of the Playbooks! Want to experience using this new Playbook coz I only have an old Blackberry phone. Goodluck to all.:)

The Playbook was really good. The playbook with OS2 Upgrade is awesome..I've not put it down. During whistles I'm playing with it. I put it down at puck drop but then grab it again at the next week whistle. It's so fluid, compact and intuitive.

I want to win it - I think the thing I like about OS 2.0 the most is the new messaging and video chat and how it can pull users out of your contact list.

why would i not love crackberry, it provides me with all the info i need about blackberry and you guys keeps on having a great giveaway which i can't resist

I love it when i show something on my playbook to people and their like oh my god, i didnt know it could due that or wow that's cool multi tasking. Then i show them the remote control feature from the phone...........got em. lol

Absolutely loving the new e-mail system and the little things like pushing an image or link to open on my playbook from my phone. It just works! And it just makes sense.

What I love abtt his site is that it keeps me up to date with blackberry. I'm a busy student n this site makes it easy for me to be on top of what's happening also I love these blogs where u can win cool stuff. I love this site!! Good job CB guys!

Love being able to sideload android apps and sync my gmail calender between playbook, BB and gmail itself by making an entry in only one of the 3.

Yes, would love to win a BlackBerry PlayBook, it is just the right size not too big or too small.

scooby125 is one lucky lad :) Bless you...i'd love to own one..dont even have a proper phone..going through all high tech especially the blackberry stuff makes me mouth drool...i've never wanted any other tablet just keep dreaming of getting a playbook someday....cheers
