My post is not showing at all :( This is bad for me :( Huhuhuhuhu I extremely one the Playbook 2.0.. Please let my comment appear... :(

What I really love about the Playbook is that it ties into the BB OS so well! And it's a very solid device. I played with one at a local store and it's perfectly pocketable. Regardless, I'd love one :D Please pick me!

I would love a to have this so bad thanks crackberry for giving them away i hope i win so bad blackberry for life long live crackberry!!!

Playbook is the best ever multitasking tablet till date....would be really lucky to win a copy .and crackberry is the website which makes us love the blackberry each and every day more and more..thnx a lot CB Team and CB@KEVIN...U guyz are Rocking....

Congratulations scooby125!! Hope you enjoy the PB as much as anyone... :)

Ok... so here goes; fingers still crossed that i be a winner of PB. Best feature you ask? You know what... the other day i realized that i had been waiting for the 3G/4G PB for no reason at all... To begin with let's just start out by throwing it out there that we don't have 3G here in Pakistan... at least not yet. So it's plain ol' simple GPRS.

And getting any other table with 3G in the market means that you'd have to go on a new data plan as well. And initially i was like, what's the use of PB if you can't use the internet without having Wifi available to you? And then it hit me last me... kind of an obvious feature (duh!)... but the PlayBook hooks up to your blackberry and thus takes advantage of your BIS all the way! So, wait! Does that mean no second data plan? SWEEEEET!

Let me win ;-) I will never give up ;-) very well upgrade to O2. Hope to see the working progress to OS3 as I have seen from OS1 to OS 2 (just faster ;-)) Thx to RIM and thx to this nice contest.

I love the reviews of Crackberry.com, they are great, it really helps me deciding what to buy, and if I have a problem the forum helps me through.

Wow, Crackberry Universe is my favorite website - I'd love to see QNX rule the BB world from 2013 onwards!

Its a multi-tasking beast! But what really sets it apart are the awesome gestures that let you navigate the beast. I wish they introduce the gestures to their touch screen phones or at least integrate them in the new BB10 phones.

played with a playbook in best buy. fell in love with it.. seems like a great device. would love to have one but couldnt afford it right now. :(

Great tablet, great comeback, great future ahead for RIM and the CB community. Appreciate your work!

CrackBerry is the best BB support community on the web, especially for Playbook. For every problem with my phone/tablet I can find a solution. Tablet OS 2.0 showed the world that BB is not dead yet. What I love the most is crass platform support for porting c++ games.

Oh, this is lovely. I love PB for all the experience it gives, especially with 2.0, so I'd love to get one.
Thanks, Crackberry!

I love being organized and seeing the calendar app on the playbook looks solid so pick me?, it will go great with my soon to be bold 9900

Loving my Blackberry. Testing out the HDMI cord connection now for TV viewing!

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Don't. Pick. Me. Or I'm going to have to give my wife a playbook to video chat with her. I'm loving the increased app volume.

I would just love a Playbook, but I can't afford one.
Why do I really want one? Well, because I want to show everybody around me how good it is and convince them that they have to buy the best tablet in the world in stead of an ipad!

I love the built-in Messages app!! Really awesome and user friendly, best native mail app i think :) So I can send and receive email without bridging it first <3

Crackberry, I think I deserve to win, since I'm checking the site daily (CB addict). Give us the precious Playbook.

OH DEAR GOD....I would love one of these, skrew da Crapple iFad....I want a mans tablet...BlackBerry Playbook for me please....

As a developer I like CrackBerry for bouncing my ideas with the community. Never assume your idea is what everybody wants.

I like the PlayBook because it feels a small nuclear power plant in terms of performance while it still fits your pockets.

I absolutely love the remote control feature on the BlackBerry Playbook and what I love even more is that CrackBerry always has these amazing contests! Thanks CrackBerry.com and please make me a winner! Pleeeeaaaasssseeee!

I love Crackberry cause I get to know all the updates from Blackberry from this site!! This is also where I learned about 9790, which is the phone I'm using now :-)

I really like all the new Apps from OS v2. This proves that you can always revive a good hardware platform with additional software features.

Maybe one day, I'll win one of these CrackBerry contests. Putting my name in.

OS 2 brings features like Bluetooth stereo and the remote control feature that I wanted so much. CrackBerry has so much great information about RIM and BlackBerries. I come here daily for my BlackBerry information and learn something new every week. Sometimes I even learn about other stuff in the mobile industry.

Well, I really need something to enter the Blackberry Android development, and I also need a 7" tablet...

Tell us what you're loving about the PlayBook, OS 2.0 or CrackBerry!

Well...I like the new Os 2.0 for its andriod apps =)

i hope they choose me the second time :D because i would love to pair the playbook whit my blackberry

You need to put BBM in the next playbook to complete ! RIM please be yourself and don't hold back! ! ! LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

I probably love the remote feature and open on the best. There is no other tablet/phone combination that works together like the BB and the playbook. I Google something on my phone and open the link on my PB. I open phone pics on the PB to get the pics on the larger sharper display. I type comments into Crackberry comments section using the remote. I love it!

Wow the pb 2.0 so worth the wait. It is amazing about the only thing it can't do is make your dinner. Worth its weight in gold

I want so much play my winbook! Thanks to Crackberry I can discover how perfect unit is PB with OS 2.0!

I so want in on this. I want a PlayBook to have the Unified Inbox.. This is definetly a plus over other tablets. And the icing on the cake is the apps. So Pick Me.

I'm going broke buying all these apps... I still like the Blackberry apps over the Android apps though.

Well, when I 1st bought BB phone, what I did was search for best forum and I found Crackberry! Subscribe Rss Feed is the must and I bought tapatalk only for this site! -_- Crackberry have been help me a lot with useful info and tips for my lovely baby Bold 9900. And there's a lot of contest too :p btw, I want to win for my upcoming bday! Yayyy :D

Usually never win anything and my Birthday was yesterday :P anyway /hopes :) always wanted a blackberry playbook and phone will be saving up for my mobile :)

Hey Kevin, please send us some BlackBerry love here in the Philippines.

Really love to have one PlayBook to review and show our dear bbmanila.com readers how awesome it is compared to the other "fruit".

BlackBerry FTW!

Basically I could do with another PlayBook as my wife keeps swiping my PB or my daughters so to keep the family in harmony a new 16gb PB would be a very welcome addition

Haha don't you love it when the wife steals it from you lolz, grats to the winner and good luck everyone(^.^)/"

wooooo please choose me! Im a blackberry fanatic! OS 2.0 is awesome and now my family won't get off my playbook :'( I can't afford another one but its soooooo amazing! Loving it! Bridging is great!

pick me pls... cos i'd love to have some of that playbook yummy goodness! crackberry.com rockssssssssssssssssssss!

I just love the playbook... its suberp specially with the OS 2 and the native emails plus multitaking.. its the best companion who needs a pc now.. And gaming with the awesome graphics specially of the mortal combat..OMG!!!..
And crackberry dont know what would i have done w/o u... not a day starts or ends w/o me checking onto u for some awesomeness....
Just love u playbook and crackberry and my blackberry...

liking that i can finally install soooome useful apps (aka android apps)...even though it requires a certain degree of witchcraft...

Just started college, and as they've always said, college years are the best memory in one's life, I love to capture my favorite and wildest memory, and keep them forever. The Playbook's portability and 1080 camera are just a killer combo!
But at the end, come on, what's not to love about the Playbook??!

I love my playbook but my girlfriend keeps fighting me for it because she is addicted to Bejeweled 2. Winning her one for herself might save our relationship.

The PlayBook even managed to save one boy's relationship after he cheekily gifted his girlfriend a 16GB giveaway.

What I love about CrackBerry is you can always get help, tips and tricks and hear about BlackBerry news first hand. I dont use any other BB site except CB!

Now that the native email and messaging clients are here its time for me to jump on the playbook bandwagon

I really liked the CrackBerry because through it, I get so much new information about the BlackBerry is a very profitable and I can use on my BlackBerry.
So, thank you CrackBerry :-D

With the enhanced PlayBook Browser since OS2 it's perfect for Prezi presentations in combination with à BlackBerry smartphone as the remote :). Al least... if you had one..

However, I'm not sure if the winners are picked @ random or whether it's the content of their comment that leads them to be picked?

I want a Super Playbook 2.0.Loving Emails,calendar,android apps !!!, contact,..........Rock it !!! Giving me plzzzzzz !! Crackberry !

I just love Crackberry for everything it does for our blackberry community.... and that playbook would look so sweet working along side my 9900. Please let me win.

As I stated before, I loved the playbook before 2.0, now with all the improvements in the messaging, contacts, video chat, it's everything I want in a tablet. I would love to give my girlfriend one so we can video chat when she goes away for business unfortunately we can't afford another one. This would be perfect and would really help our relationship. Thanks Crackberry for the chance.

Sign me up!

The PB is great because of its size and multitasking capabilities: writing an email and consulting a website with one swipe.

I owned a PB months ago, but I couldn't stand the bugs and gave it away. Now I'm curious about how they have improved the OS.

The new integrated messages app, android runtime, and remote control feature introduced by the PlayBook OS 2.0 is the thing that has completely won me over, and since Twosday, have been recommending PlayBook to anyone and everyone.
And ofcourse, CrackBerry has been the guiding light for all things BlackBerry related since I purchased my first BB, the Curve 9300. Thanks CrackBerry

Would love to win this for my fiancee :) I am loving the new Bridge software and the ability to create folders makes things so much easier to keep the os tidy (maybe a little ocd) and having the Messages software on their now is just heaven sent :)

I love everything which was implemented in OS 2.0 which was lovely showed in this newest ad for Blackberry Playbook - http://bit.ly/AsAmIb But the most important function which I fancy in Blackberry Playbook is Native email, calendar, and contacts apps. It's basics which I use many times during every day. Also the great possibility of using Blackberry Playbook with BB smartphone for using to present anything I have on Playbook is great innovation and realy useful!

CrackBerry is fantastic site which gives me every glimpse of information or gossip from Blackberry. That's why I love this site guys!

Thanks to Crackberry for this exciting event, to bring everyone a really good chance to own this ABSOLUTELY GREAT device. I got one, and i really love it. PB has a very delicate design, no button, a heavy-enough weight to be more like a valuable device (not a toy), and the material covering the back which (i think) make me feel really good when touching it (i dont know how to describe). Even the app amounts are of course cant compare with the appstore (ipad) AT THE MOMENT, but "she" serves me well, smooth swipe gestures (one of the best thing i love from PB), pushing email, and the BB brigde (who says PB cant access to the internet without wi-fi) which help me more in synchronizing contacts and information (its the second of the PB that make me satisfied),... there's alot more that i cant list it all out here (because my english skill is not good enough). But the final thing i wanna share is, with one Bold on the left, one PB on the right, i always feel confident when walking down the street. Thanks.

P/S: my brother is a fan of icrap, can you help me change his mind with 1 of PB. ^-^!

Loving the Playbook! now with the os 2.0 QNX is slowly being maximized! i just love the bridge update. everything is now smooth!

Please send me a playbook. That way i can give/lend my playbook to someone else and could use it to persuade them to make the switch!

lets face it.. not alot of people get to try them thats why they have no idea what the playbook is capable of!

PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS PLS

Want to save a family crisis?

I use mine to convert apk to bar files (thanks to Johan and Crackberry this is easy and great to do!) plus the usual email and media stuff.

Now my daughter is desperate to have her own so she can video chat with me and her friends here while she is away at school. But I won't relinquish mine - as it's so brilliant!

So......... please can we have another one?

PS. I'll even teach her how to sign apps!

I have had a 16G PlayBook since back mid-2011. I liked it so much I purchased one for my son so he could enjoy it and we could try out video chat.
After 2.0 came out, I decided to purchase one for my girlfriend so we could video chat and she loves it.
Now the bad news ... I was on a business trip to Flint, MI just this past week and it got stolen out of my vehicle.
Now no PlayBook ... No fun ... Hope my favorite BlackBerry website Crackberry can help me!!!

I love the better looking home screen and being able to make folders on it. I would really like another one for my wife to play with.

My whole family is loving the playbook. My wife and I both have blackberry phones as well. She likes the idea of bridging the two, but wanted her own playbook for that instead of using mine.

Here's to hoping I win one for my wife. I would love to get my playbook back from her. :)

Good luck to everyone. Thank you crackberry for such a great contest.

I got my first Blackberry 2 years ago and it was all very new to me, never had a smartphone before. But now I'm choosing my 2nd Blackberry and I consider myself a very competent BB user, and everything I learnt was from this site and these forums :)

Love OS 2.0! Email, calendar and all the other improvements are great additions. There's still a few hiccups to work out, but this update has definitely solidified Playbook as my favorite tablet. As for Crackberry, keep up the great work Kevin & the team! Your enthusiasm and insight is a welcome sight in an Internet tech world that seems relatively negative.

Never had any blackberry products until picked up a 16gb PlayBook on Christmas Eve in the sale. Now have 64gb and a curve 9300. (gave the 16gb to my girlfriend). Loving blackberry!!! Would like another pb to give to my girls brother who lives in Shanghai. His first baby is due in Sept so would be great to video chat to see the new family member.

Thanks to crackberry too. Learning something new every time I log in.

Steven

I love Crackberry news about this so cool Playbook, still not decided to buy one so I take my chance :)

The unified messaging centre is certainly very good indeed - very well thought out, OS 2.0 is certainly doing the business for me now and I am now developing for the Playbook OS platform!!

I hope I can win a playbook from CB, because I just had my 9860 & there's no way i will be given playbook in these short time and i considering playbook rather than other tablet due to the awesome feature and the bridging, why go for another tablet when you have a BB smartphone? Thx anyway & hope for the best :D

Kudos to CB team. Thanks for all the up to date news from CB Kevin & team. Now, please give me a PlayBook!

I love my playbook and I would love to give one to my wife, she wants to switch from a HTC inspire to the Torch 9860, this would give her the push she needs!

The Playbook was a non starter for me before OS 2.0. now, it appears to be the perfect device. I would love to win one. The funds aren't there to purchase with 2 kids under 4 at home. Please pick me!
