If there is a tab in my life, that's gotta be playbook! I LOVE U CB


I want one!

[Deadly duo - Playbook/Bold]


I want, I want, I want....:)


I love the sideloading with OS2 :)


I would love a BlackBerry playbook! They're awesome, like they can do anything and everything! Watching movies, listening to music and chatting with friends on them would be awesome!


I wonder how CB chooses the winner, maybe this is finally my turn


Native e-mail is what I would like about a new Blackberry Playbook 2.0 and Crackberry rules too!


This would be awesome to have in Arizona realestate, showing off Blackberry. We need tools not pad toys


Count me in, greetz from Asia =)

I love Crackbeery forum!


I wonder why rim is putting up all blackberry store in Indonesia? Didn't they know that one of the social hub in Asia is the Philippines. Blackberry doesn't have a single store here duh, its pain to buy smartphone and playbook to third party reseller, its expensive. I can't even find a convertible case for my playbook. I hope crackberry will make me win this time, more power! Thanks.


Thank you CrackBerry for 5 great years! Your Site has definitely enhanced my BlackBerry experience.


I want a playbook to keep permanently hdmi'd to my new tv.


Lol, you guys are just amazing. I wonder if you use this contests as "experiments" or something like that to gather information about your readers. Nice blog by the way, love to have all the latest news on RIM.


Thanks in advance!!!!

Charlie Mumford

I would love another blackberry playbook!! April is birthday month in my family and I cannot afford to buy everyone whatever they want. So help me out plz :(


Would love to win this :)


I've been successful in turning my lady into a BlackBerry addict and all that needs to happen is for her to have her own PlayBook. Please us out.


3 is my lucky # ;D love the multi-tasking on this thing would love to actually own one!


It would be nice........


I'll gladly carry a PlayBook in the name of


Would be great for me to do homework with the DocToGo and PDF Reader. I want one please!


New pb with os2 - why not. Count me in for sure.


That android player is included so we can at least get some android stuff even if the developer is lazy.


Who will be lucky number 3?

Another great CrackBerry contest!


Thanks for these opportunities Crackberry!


I'm liking the Playbook for the way I could use it at school especially with the new Keyboard case you previewed!

Now to save for one ;)


I would love to see what a PlayBook can do!


The remote feature is great. It makes using this tablet so much fun and more important much easier to type emails etc. I really would love to win one. I would give my old one to my brother. He'll love it.


The new features in OS 2.0 have been a god send. I work full time and also teach as an Adjunct Instructor at 3 different Universities. Keeping all of the deadlines, email, etc.. organized is extremely important as I have no room for error. So the calendar and email feature are my life blood.

However recently I have started watching my calories in an effort to live a healthier life style. As busy as I am I tend to eat out a lot and try to keep track of what is the better choice food wise is always a challenge. Then it hit me. I go to sites like and use there calorie calculator to build sandwiches that will keep me on track and I used the print to go feature to send those results to my playbook. I go to other sites and download their nutrition information as well to my playbook using print to go and there you have it.

Where ever I go to eat I have what I need on my playbook to make the better choices.

That is why I love my Playbook and the new OS 2.0 it is now a tool for my life as well as my business.


meee i would like one!!!


Slimmest of Chances!


Hehe! You guys truly are awesome! I want to get my wife her own Playbook so she'll stop taking mine! ;-)


I want a playbook, because I AM CANADIAN (think of Molson commercial).


Pretty please!!! It would be so awesome to have a Playbook...thanks CB!!


Pick me please!!! would like to have one.


Maybe I can watch some MLB on a PB as the handhelds appear to be cut off.


Nothing like a cold can of Monster to start the night off...


please let me win, CB for Life.

Hope win this time InshaAllah!!!

Pick me contest robot!


Crack Berry is awesome!


When I first bought my Playbook I knew we were on bright future path. Since the new OS 2 released, it brought me even closer to my Playbook with the new built in features;email(use a lot on the go), calendar (always have someones birthday to remember in every month). The multitasking is Superb! There is so much possibilities to do things when you have a Playbook, TAKE MY WORD FOR IT!....loved to own another as my second baby(no one touches!) punchline; Playbook, where the impossibles becomes possible!

Well, there are many reasons why I want to win this play book, #1 - IT'S AWESOME! #2 I had actually won a play book contest before, but I never got it. See when blackberry was having the launch party for the play book in Toronto, they held a contest and were giving away playbooks for the best haikus about blackberry, I got the message that I won, but unfortunately due to some issues they couldn't give it to me. My winning poem was this.       "Wow Friend Look At That,
It is the Blackberry Playbook,
It Makes Me Go Mad." we'll long story short I had the chance but it didn't happen. #3 I love this site, I have it bookmarked everywhere, and on twitter too. I love blackberry and this playbook would look great with my torch. So PLEASSSEEEE crackberry if you see this long heartfelt post worthy please pick me.LOVE TO CRACKBERRY AND BLACKBERRY!!!!!!!!!

Blackberrys are very cool! Pick me PLEASE


Blackberry makes the world go round


Pura Vida! Loving my PlayBook when I see a client's face lit up with curiosity when I showed them my portfolio on this slick device protected with a beautiful leather case.


Just last night, I went from Win XP Pro to Win 7. Come syncing my PB, Win 7 could not recognize my PB.

A quick search of the CB forums brought me to a thread where a simple solution was suggested. Wham bham, thank you.... The simple solution did indeed solve my issue.

This is what CB is all about, sharing experiences and providing suggestions. Nothing beats support coming from real-time and actual users of the same item you are using.



Please. Please. Please pick me!


great chance for everyone, BB - my passion! i'm really hunger for one, but i cant afford it.


would be very cool win - thank you. Crackberry. And gratz to this week's winner!


First of I love crackberry because of the shop that is more cheaper than some stores here. The forum where everyone shares and learn. The News to keep me updated (honestly i refresh the browser to check when there are new one) and i love the contests and giveaway

I love THE PLAYBOOK because... Well ever since last year with the release im hoping to get one, and it has been my daily routine to check on videos (unboxing,review)
Now with the release of Os2 theres just more to love about!
Messages- what i really need because i manage a lot email accounts daily.
Syncing calendars with my contacts is a one cool feature too. :)
About the gaming, i know after the os2 release we get more games because of sideloading and i found out that there are my most loved emulators on PB.
I love the Os2 update on the appworld where i get to see some featured games and apps (but i do hope they change daily) and unlike itunes where i need to choose credit cards or buy a card which is really taking time, on App world i get to pay via Paypal :D
I also love the print to go that is a great addition on os2 :D

I have so many things to say and reasons to love Crackberry,the Playbook OS2... Now if only i can win on this qnd get a new Playbook :D Ill be super happy! Oh and i can add protection with that $100 free :)


Would love to win this! Especially with the accessories add on!


Blackberry has given so much even with my 8520 I'm getting so much out of it, a playbook has been something I have wanted for some time now it would be awesome to win one. Blackberry No1!!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks for the chance! I want one!


Nough playing around just send my playbook please


I'd love to have a PlayBook with OS 2.0, the best part bein' the Android app compatibility :-D


CrackBerry is simply the best resource anyone owning a RIM device can turn to... I've been doing it for years and I'll certainly continue to do so! Guess I need a PlayBook so I can use all the great CB info to be had now!


2 down, 2 to go! Come on lady luck!!!


Yes free PlayBook please!


It would be great to win this !


Loving Crackberry for all the chances to win a new BlackBerry Playbook!


I wanna load steven king's movie "it" on a playbook and take my ten year old boy to stanley park where it was filmed and get him to watch night..i fully expect him to throw the pb in abject terror, so i could use another one for when mine gets destroyed


I want to have this BlackBerry Playbook 2.0! Please give me this one.:)


BlackBerry Remote is the best reward for BB user.
