We're Giving Away a BlackBerry PlayBook a week for Four weeks! Here's your 3rd Chance to Win!



I Love My Playbook.
Its not a love at first sight (because my love at first sight was on my blackberry torch 9800), but our relationship is getting deeper n more intense. I can have my e-mails on Playbook, reading books, play movies, playing games, and the best of all is: i can also open my BBM on playbook. With os 2.0 on board, Android apps also available, so Playbook is attract me more and more.
well, i think our relationship is now a threesome. Me, Playbook and my old love: Blackberry Torch 9800. Reliably PlayFull.

Now we're happily ever after... until one of them low battery.


I would love to have one of this, unfortunately in my coutry they sell playbook very expensive, overpriced. All of my friend using android because cheaper and I still stick to Blackberry.

Awesome stuff CrackBerry. I really like now that PlayBook 2.0 is out that the detractors have nothing left to complain about with the PlayBook, it simply works and does all that it should.

I should win because I'm so diehard BlackBerry I just traded a Mytouch4g for a beat up 8900 just because I want to restore it to it's factory glory. I know most people would think I got a terrible deal, but maybe y'all will make this the sweetest deal with a Playbook.

I love the wonder that OS 2 has brought to the already awesome PlayBook! My computer is jealous of all the time I now spend using it to surf the net, check email, go on Facebook, video chat and use BlackBerry Messager to talk with my hubby when he's at work, take photos and play games too. Even my BlackBerry Torch 9800 feels neglected because after getting my 16 GB PlayBook only use it to bridge my PlayBook and make an occasional phone call. Please pick me so I can give one to my mother!

Today I'm hoping to get lucky, A playbook is certainly on my wish list. Thank u crackberry for these awesome competitions.

What I like about the Playbook and/or OS 2.0.....is that its much easier to navigate and organize the applications. Not to mention the social integrations within the calendar and messaging app! Definitely a big improvement and step forward from the initial OS release last year. Slowly but surely :) *hope I win so my brother can enjoy a PB too!*

The OS 2.0 is simply awesome! Though not perfect , but I look forward to better enhancements to it. Of course the more android apps are ported over, the happier we will be!

Along with the ever-so-beautiful screen, best sounding speakers (on tablet), I love playbook to the bits!! :D

I tried a new Playbook OS 2.0 out at the store and love it. I like how it connects to my Blackberry Curve to tether to the internet even though my Curve doesn't have tethering.

I also think its cool how I can use my Curve as a remote control on the Playbook. And when I get a phone call, it showed up on the screen of the Playbook.


Use my buddies Playbook all the time. Now I need one of my own. Ever since 2.0 came out......just that much more awesome!!

Thanks Crackberry!!


The thing I currently love most about my playbook with 2.0 is the Print To Go! So easy and so quick! It helps me to study, helps me to keep my sh*t together and organized! Next thing, I love that I feel more in touch with Blackberry since I started reading Crackberry on a daily basis! It widens the spectrum of the Blackberry Experience. Keep it up Crackberry!

Thank you for creating this contest, I am loving the look and feel of the new calendar and contacts applications on 2.0! I hope I win.

Help, I'm surrounded by iPads!
So I'd really love a Playbook..

Thank you Crackberry for giving me this fixation as a way of enriching my life.

I would absolutely love to have a Playbook.
I just got rid of Android phone to come back to a BlackBerry Bold

I must say that after receiving a playbook during my xmas R & R from my spouse it works great here in Afghanistan. The fact that the battery lasts long enought to watch about 2 movies and the high resolution games available makes it great during downtime.

A free one would mean that I can do the video chat with the spouse......hopefully I get it. Thanks!

I've never used a tablet, because I think it is not really usable. But looking at the Playbook 2.0, I really want it. I do not need Transformer =) or iPad, but exactly Playbook 2.0.

Blackberry does this well recognized. and of course with improvements. i had it in hands in a store to and I got very warm . Now I must save some money to try it but it's worthit. each product blackberry is convincing. once you go for blackberry you will enter directly into the marriage and your name will be blackberry.

pllssssssss count me in....i want this soooooo badleeeeeeeee .......btw thanx for this giveaway ....crackberry nation u guys rockkkkkkkk ;)

Will have to win Playbook to see what it can really do. Teasers are leading to envy. Crackberry is fun and informative. Make my day!

Hey, only over 4000 participants, I have a chance to win this little marvel then !!! :)

thanks Crackberry for your excellent site and resources !

please, thaink about me when you pick-up :)

Would LOVE one, wouldn't mind taking this awesome tablet with me over to Afghanistan this summer!! Hope I'm the third lucky winner! Congratulations to the other two winners!

Crackberry is where I get my fix for the latst info on RIM products apps and accesory reviews. Keep it going!!!!!

I know crackberry won't read this, but I will keep sending this comment. I never use a playbook, just got my Torch 9860 and it is nice if i can get a playbook and try to used it since i'm a game-maniac. i'm not a gadget geeks so I can't tell what good and what bad about playbook coz i never get a chance to use it. Thanks for reading this if i'm chosen then maybe i'm the lucky man from Malaysia :)

Keep on motivate

p/s : sorry for my bad english. well at least i'm trying :P

Thank you crackberry for the opportunity! Have never won anything, hope this would be my first!!!

I would LOVE to win the Blackberry Playbook !

I am from South Africa, the pricing here is ridiculous and isn't opening the marker for RIM.

Bridge with my BB is awesome, especially with the new remote control features.
But I'm travelling right now and don't want to pay roaming, so it's great to have the new 2.0 native e-mail on wifi!

I've given 3 PB's as gifts so far... Will be happy to get another one of my relatives PlayBookified!

Thank you for everything Crackberry! I have to say my favorite new feature is the new Bridge using the remote from your Blackberry. Two thumbs up! Now RIM, lets get these BB10 devices out and lets shoot for the top again! GO RIM!

I have a new Playbook being shipped to me right now! The first two things I'm going to do is upgrade to OS 2.0 and then check out the awesome community here at CrackBerry from my Playbook!

If I win a second Playbook, I would give it to a family member so that we can become CrackBerry addicts together!

Having never won anything till date. I think it would be great if I was to win one, If not then Congrats to the winner.

God Bless

I was waiting for Ipad update to check which one was better. PlayBook defenitely is a better deal.
If I don't win it, I'll buy it.

The playbook is really a play book at my house. with both my 4yr daughter and wife enjoying it.
(they mostly play kid games and watch kids rhymes...)
I use it to play a few games too. the latest offer of the free versions of Modern Combat 2 and Asphalt 6 Adrenaline is an icing on the cake

The new OS has turned my playbook into a new device. I love:

- New bridge with remote capabilities
- Ability to load many android apps
- Love the crackberry forum with over 300 converted android apps

This is the only tablet which basically let's you run to Tablet OS. Used to take my playbook to work once in a while before OS 2. Now, I take it with me everyday! Loving it!

with this amount of competitors, the chances are that i will go to the moon than win something...worth trying :)

Its worth trying :-) - because OS 2.0 has shed some light onto this PlayBook offering us Crackberry followers something to talk about. Just look at this level of interest, I don't think this PlayBook is a fail rather a diamond in the dirt.


In Germany we have a Proverb: "Aller guten Dinge sind drei!"

The Translation is: "The best things come in threes!"

Maybe I become the third winner of the wonderful BlackBerry Playbook...

Would like to win one.
& Thanks CrackBerry for giving me all the latest and the best stuff on BlackBerry!

Pick me my wife like to use mine and i never get a looking sometimes or when i do the battery is dead.
help me crackberry your my only hope

One of the few reasons i'd love a playbook is to further enjoy the world of Blackberry and ofcourse keep an eye on Crackberry from that !

I find CrackBerry.com is the most informative website on the topic BlackBerry.
I really would love to win a Playbook is it is not possible to officially buy it in Hungary yet.

That would be the perfect gift for my birthday this week!
And you guys at CB are really great! Thanks for all the informations about our favourite smartphne brand!

If I don't win that PlayBook, I'm just gonna buy one.
Now with 2.0 it's the greatest tablet of all time and it works perfectly with my 9900 :)

I want it :D

Because My Mother enjoys reading electronic newspapers all the day, also she enjoys reading twitter updates regarding the Egyptian Revolution which happened a year ago. So I wanted to gift her the greatest device on the earth.

I enjoy the Native Email the most in OS 2.0 being a website owner and developer on AppWorld now. Emails mean a lot to me!

Crackberry is my way of keeping in touch with news for my blackberry bold. I have been playing on the playbook of a friend, and would love it not to travel 3 miles to play with it ;).. At first the playbook was 'nice'.. with 2.0 it is Awsome! :). Please let me have my very own copy =]

Crackberry is the real reason I'm back to blackberry. Love my 9900 and need a playbook to enhance the experience.

At first, I wanted to get the Playbook, but not for $500 for 16GB. I rather have gotten an iPad2 for that price, but wouldn't get it either because for that price I get a laptop.

But once RIM dropped the price to $200, I bought the 32GB model. Being able to bridge and utilize the internet at no extra cost and the keyboard of my phone is invaluable tool.

Well, my wife wants a Playbook for (like me) more for work, but also some playtime. While I'm going to get her one, I would like to get my Dad a Playbook as well. He's a warehouse manager and could use a tablet to operate his spreadsheet while away from his desk, but I would like to use the video chat to stay in touch with him.

The Playbook has really replaced my need for a laptop, and it would do the same for my Wife and Dad.

I found this site looking for apps for the playbook. I learned how to use the print to go feature from a video here. Lucked out to have found a site that can answer all my blackberry questions. Sweet!

It would be great to get this Playbook! I am trying to convert some of my friends and family and this would be a great way to do so!

Tablet + android + is blackberry; why would I not want a bb playbook. Good luck, would really help me in developemnt

Hi everyone :) Just to say I am not currently a fanboy or Blackberry user, but did try out the Playbook and liked it a lot! I came close to buying more than once.

It is a very good device that should get more credit than it currently have. RIM just needs to crack on and work hard and it will pay off in the end! I don't think the Playbook is doomed, just that it needs to get the right message out to show its real potential. How about being able to develop apps straight on the device without the use of other computers?... interface with curiosity more :)

I would love a playbook, I'm on an old 8900 curve now and upgrading next month (After spilling hot chocolate over my bold 9700!) would go great with a new blackberry 9900!

Hi Crackberry
I love my blackberry 9300 and I wanna pair it with a Playbook, none of my friends/family have one so I wanna win to show them how amazing BlackBerry is and to have my own tablet (it would be my first one)
Have a great day guys!!

Oh Good! I need urgently this playbook! I want to substitute my iPad 1 as fast as I can !!!

i got a PB demo for work as we are looking at giving them to our field reps. I had a hard time giving it back!! Would love to win one for myself. If I win it please don't make me give it back!! Thanks Crackberry!!

I'd love to have one.

With OS 2.0 the playbook has completely turned the competition around.

I've been following crackberry closely and i think seeing all the comparisons made, the playbook stands a good chance of kicking some serious Galaxy tab & iPad butt.

Pick me! Had to sell my previous one to my father to help pay for necessities.

To get a replacement would be awesome!!! :D

I Love Blackberry playbook because it is comptet packege with entertainment ,gaming ,blackberry messenger,photography and off cource it's personality..............i love it

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I clearly won both of the last two giveaways, but someone switched out my name! This time, do the right thing and let me win.

I love Crackberry, because it gives me a hub to which I can reference all the people that I've convinced to buy Playbooks!

I'd love to possess a Playbook. I reckon this tablet has much more to offer than what the competition proposes. For any Blackberry abuser, this tablet definitely is a must-have. And now that OS 2.0 is out, there's just THAT much more we can do with it. I'm tired of endless criticism about this device. If i were to win it, i'd show all my iPad owner mates that the Playbook has nothing to blush about, and that RIM still is a major player on today's market. And to answer the question on what i love about Crackberry? The faith.
Yes indeed. The faith you guys still have in RIM and their products, that one too many seem to have lost. I still have faith. Mostly, thanks to you guys. So i'll say plain simply : keep up the great work, because you are a key player in this. Cheers.

I want another playbook for my sister, shes using an iPad right now and if she had a playbook she could see that she is missing out on the true powers of the Playbook and RIM

If you want to use Playbook Video Chat you need a friend that owns a Playbook or.......
Win this one and give it to a friend. Which possibility is easier??

Have a good day.
