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



Am I a BlackBerry fanboy, In the last two weeks I have become an even bigger one thanks to the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 software update. Before the update, I was a fan of my PlayBook, but I didn’t find myself using it on a daily basis. I kept it on an end table and it was more of a couch reader than anything else. I’d use it for quick web searches, maybe a game here and there and I’d typically pull it out and use Evernote when conjuring up dinner in the kitchen. Thanks to the PlayBook 2.0 software however, I’ve been carrying my PlayBook with me much more...the new software update has bought so much more that I can't do with it anymore..loving the new OS and the integration with android apps!


My hands are open for you to present me with a new Playbook. I would be honoured to receive one.

Let me thank you in advance.


Work is starting to get iphone/ipad crazy for no reason. Would love a PB to give them a reason to stick with their Blackberrys!

I love RIM! I'm an Network Administrator and was forced to move to the iPhone at work. I convinced them to let me go back to my Bold and wait for the new BB 10 phones. I have been following the Playbook on CB since it was just a rumor.

Things I Love:

-It's a BlackBerry
-Email (Active Sync)
-Video Chat
-Social Everywhere
-Web Browser
-BlackBerry Bridge 2.0 - PS3 Integration and BB Integration
-Hi-Def Audio
-HDMI out
-Presentation software and using a BB as a remote
-New Home Screen (ORGANIZATION)
-App Catalog
-Mobile Fusion
-Media Content
-Documents to Go

I LOVE CRACKBERRY AND RIM! I am a big advocate for both!

Be Bold!

It'll be really useful to have one for my partner, as we spend a lot of time separated. Apart from that, I've used an ipad and a galaxy and in my humble the playbook stands out in the usability stakes, lovely multitasking, beautiful screen, nicely connected email/contacts/calender and makes a lovely ereader. Getting a playbook has really turned me on to blackberry & qnx, and turned me away from the iOS/android axis of advertising :-) keep smiling.

Blackberry Bold 9900? Check!
I saved enough money to buy this..
I even sometimes skipped meals just to save money and tried not to buy things more special than the Bold..

Then I joined Crackberry.... CB Team for short ^_^

User-friendly site and Admins? Check!
Being a new member of this BIG BB group, every information I need can be found here..
From New stuffs about RIM, tips, New Gadget up to the Accessories available are all converged into one on this awesome site..
Giveaways are infinite.. As if we have our own Genie came out of the Lamp, every week to grant our simple wish..
What I do love here is that you can never be lost or late to all the happenings about RIM/Blackberry. Just go to the site and TADA! Questions are answered right there and then.. Thats why I am truly proud to be a CB Member! <3
There is no doubt, not a single doubt, why the site is Number 1.. All I can say is that, you have to see it for yourself.. Join the team, and be Happy! Guaranteed!

And oh, Playbook OS 2.0? Hmmm.. I am crossing my fingers to say, CHECK! ^_^
I have read so many articles, reviews about it in the Forum (Where? Of course on this site)
There are so many things I like with the new Playbook.. Not only it can help you connect to your friends, colleagues and co-members, it'll greatly help us to bridge all our thoughts and be connected to each other anytime, anywhere :D

Given the chance to have one, even just a second-hand playbook, I would definitely appreciate it and would keep it with care!

So there, I still have a lot things to share about CB team and the Playbook however, it would be much fun if you will be the one to check in the Forum.. :D

PROUD TO BE A CRACKBERRY FOLLOWER! Keep it up guys! Congrats for being the Number 1 site for Blackberry! Love yah!

Would love to use the playbook to give presentations to clients on a one-on-one basis! What a sweet portable size!

I would like to have one to test for the agency I work for...we need the highest level of security and working with BB has always provided that. We have the iPads coming in and there are so many issues. I want to demo the Playbook, in bridge with forms loaded. Winning one would be helpful!!

I am just a regular guy an choose to buy a blackberry smartphone because it was the latest craze. I never used the manual, just the tutorial on it an thanks to Crackberry I learned everything else from tips & tricks to updating the latest OS. Then here comes along the playbook, I don't have one but find it to be the cutest thing. Its very portable an not to big like the ipad to carry around and with the OS2 upadate I could get use to the the integarted messages and the remote with blackberry bridge...that's technology. I learned of all these through most of the demos on Crackberry's site that I continue to follow. Only sad thing is that I'm not d owner of 1 of these playbooks to get the real experience :(

OH man! i am crossing my fingers. Maybe Week3 will be my time.
A BlackBerry for my Wife would a def +

GO Team CB!



Would be AMAZINING to win !!!!



Would be AMAZINING to win !!!!

Love this site/community, always looking out for the it's members with another great chance to win a great device, thank you Kevin!

It's CRACKBERRY...I thought you knew!

I love CrackBerry, keeps me uphdated with info to maximize the use of my BlackBerry bold 9900. Having a Playbook with complete my BlackBerry experience. Would really love to have this Playbook.

I love the seamless array of 2.0 for the Playbook using my Blackberry Bold to control it plus using the Android apps

Most of all though the functionality puts the naysayers to bed

I love you guys at Crackberry because its not a Fanboy website its all about what is liked in a common sense attitude which is Perfect

This could be the beginning of my conversion back to BB from Android. I've always missed the BB form factory and I was impressed by the Playbook at CES. Hook me up.

Would love to win one of these for my wife :)

The new OS2.0 is fantastic and i really like the integrated messages and contacts.

Crackberry this is very cool!
I love my BB and finding new apps n stuff thru you to make life more fun and enjoyable is a fantastic help!!
I'm a grandmother back in school and would love a PlayBook!!
That fitness app would really help me too!! :)
Thanx Crackberry...wish me luck!!

First off, congrats carleone2gz on your new PB! Use it in good health..

Next, please enter me in this third round..

I would like to rock my world with this new full of awesomeness os in the playbook... Itts 2.0 baby!! I deffinitely want that ..all the best thnks crackberry!

Love the android app player feature.
Very cool giveaway, would love to win.
Great informative site BTW.

Good day Crackberry!

Definitely my fave feature in Blackberry Playbook OS 2.0 is the Android Player. Hope I can win one!

I love the new software on the Playbook and how it is everything that I would need. I love Crackberry for giving me the opportunity to win something I could not afford

I've been lurking crackberry for too long. This contest was just the incentive I needed to register :)

I love Crackberry as it keep me up to date with all blackberry news and tricks. Being new to the Blackberry universe I have a lot of catch-up to do so this is a nice way to do it.

PB for enterprise should be a no-brainer for most!
RIM has gone a long way (and there remains opportunities to grow even more) with OS 2.0, Mobile Fusion and Device Services.

If 4G/LTE is woefully missing, I view that as an opportunity for RIM.
Oh wait: most ipads that are sold are the baby version...only Wifi!

Maybe incremental changes are good enough if the end product is solid.


Here's my post. I would say something about the PlayBook, but I don't have one. That's why I'm trying to win one.

I would love to tell you all about how much I am loving the Playbook and OS 2.0...once I have one in my hands! :)

please pick me and i love the new system compared to the old one
at the source here the are showing the differnces and the second one is ways better

Kevin, you should give me one becuz I'm creating a new blog testing tablets, I just pre ordered the new iPad so if i were to win this i could do comparison tests PROVING BLACKBERRY IS BETTER and it would save me some cost!!

Maybe the third time's a charm...
Looking forward to bridging my BB Bold with the BB PlayBook ... using your BB phone as remote control connection is really awesome!!!

I only wish BlackBerry could make improvements to its product offerings as quickly as they're made here at CrackBerry.com.

Former BB Fanboy who came up the ranks from a Curve to a Bold to a Torch before jumping ship to Android. Waiting longingly for the BB that brings me back. It's an OS thing, not form factor.


The Playbook really allows me to be more productive and effective than my other colleague sitting in the same meeting room. The integrated PIM allows me to be a step ahead than other professionals: as information/knowledge (of my networks) is true power in the corporate arena.

Truly, it is a tablet meant for use by true empowered professionals, even in the way in handles multitasking so effortlessly, that there is no barrier nor distraction while switching apps.

When outside of work, the play is fun too with powerful graphics for games. High quality sound chip (something rarely spoken about) also soothes my inner peace after a long day at work (on the commute or waiting for the takeout). Easy connection to my HD-TV means quality time spent with spouse/kids over movies.


This would be great- then my son would finally have his own "little computer to play Cuckoo Birds" (his term for Angry Birds)!!

I love how convenient and powerful the Playbook is! My husband has one and raves about how great his Playbook is and now I want one too! Would love to win one of these handy, FUN little devices!

I can not comment on Playbook nor OS 2.0 because I have never gotten a chance to use it. So, this is a once a life time chance to get one!

However, I know for sure that Crackberry is the greatest site for getting all things about Blackberry!

The Playbook is so convenient to carry around. I'm currently using a Mac computer for my design works, which is awesome, but it's so difficult to carry around when I want to make presentations at school to my professors. Most of the time we just sit at a table and show our work, using a laptop becomes really clumsy. So I'd really like a Playbook to improve that =)

Would LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVEEEEEEE the Playbook to be mine!

But as I'm never lucky in these kinds of things, I'll just have to compete in the 4th contest :(

Don't you want the baby cobbler to get turned on at a young age? What better way than a brand new spanking Playbook where she can learn and have fun all at the same time! Not to mention...... I'm talking MAJOR COOL DADDY POINTS!!!!! if I win this!

Whooooooooooo I gott'a win this (the only other thing I've ever won is a set of saucepans - and the handle fell off one off them)

I would love to win a PlayBook. I have never had one before, but I have ordered from crackberry and I love the easy ordering, and the huge variety of accessories for my BlackBerry 8330. Not many places sell the accessories that I need, so when I was introduced to crackberry, I fell in love with the site. Thank you crackberry for being here when I need you!

I have one, ot updated yet since I'm overseas and due to security issues I left my PB at home. But I need another one... :)

*Single* White Male seeks lonely Playbook for long term relationship. Interests include fast web surfing, movies, music, Amateur video *Wink wink*, and playing the odd game. Looking for a Playbook that appreciates a good gesture and has the energy to make it through the busy day that is me!

The best berries are black,
the best Apples are white;
but I'll take a playbook in a heartbeat,
for me it works "just right"!

I'm loving Crackberry for giving us followers the opportunity to win PlayBooks and other great apps and accessories from the CrackBerry giveaway closet. They have to come from the giveaway closet and not from Kevin's giveaway desk drawer because he doesn't have one!

Crackberry keeps me updated daily on the latest news about the blackberry and playbook world. I would love to win a playbook.

Would love to win this, been wanting one since they came out, and especially now with OS2 out. But as a poor student, it hasn't been feasible as of yet, a free one and accessories would be amazing! Hope I win!

Well I love my playbook, the os2 just make it even better. My wife like it so much that she keep it for herself. That's why we need another one.

Congrats to the winner of 1 and 2!!!!!!!!! Awesome!!!!! Winning would be Awesome'r! It would make my Curve Happy Happy

I don't own any BB products yet, so I can't tell you what I love about them. If you pick me, then I'd be able to tell you. Therefore, you should pick me... good luck to all!

C'mon, c'mon, c'mooon guys!!!!! I need a Playbook to keep on spreading the word and bring in more converts! Help me help you!!!

love how crackberry has a comprehensive review on Blackberry's hardware and application as well as breaking news on Blackberry stuff

Crackberry.com rocks!! love the forums, tips, and great prices on acc. My spouse is away for 6 weeks in hospital. A second unit would be great to have video chats. Thanks for the chance

What's there not to love about this awesome little tablet!? It does everything you need it to and more! It's small, it's comfortable to handle, it's fast, it's the perfect little companion anyone could have! Goodbye laptops and netbooks!


I love the new OS 2.0! I can organize my application and sort through my e-mails more easily. Everything seem clearer on the interface and added bridge functions are just perfect. I'm glad to be a BB Playbook owner: it makes my life easier!

Hi Kevin,

My name is Playbook. I have decided to talk about my problems on this website. I have been a Crackberry addict since so long. I know what you guys are going tell me '' You can change if you want'' or the best one '' You're doom if you dont change your ways!''. But everytime i do it, I get into a crazy multitasking frenzie. It always start with the crazy idea of putting all my mails into one box then calling everybody that I know just to make sure that we are on the same page at the same date for everything.I don't know how to change. Please help me Kevin.



In threes!

Why I considered buying the Playbook:
1.There was a huge discount during the month of December 2011 (almost 50% off).
2.Impressive specs & impressive performance (Arm A9 Dual Core 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 5MP+3MP camera, 1080p recording, GPS: what more can you ask for?).
3.It was perfect in all ways for my needs!

Why I am extremely happy with the Playbook:
1.OS 2.0! Though I had doubts about my decision in buying the Playbook, the OS upgrade changed that and brought along with it contentment and happiness.
2.Stability & performance: especially while gaming. I have not experienced any kind of lag so far!
3.Android app support: widened the horizon & is definitely an icing on the cake!

Why I am so glad to have chanced upon Crackberry.com:
1.Reading through the reviews, posts & news influenced me a lot in forming the decision to buy a Playbook.
2.“Dear Berry” is such a dear!
3.This was the only site which over a period of time made the Android to Playbook app conversion process so simple, that even I could do it myself!!

I really want a BB Playbook and have wanted one for a while; just can't get the funds to buy one. Please pick me, If you do I won't ask for anything this christmas :)

p.s Keep up the good work Crackberry.com!
