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



I am a newbie to the site and as I was just shown the Playbook by brother in law, as I was going to purchase an iPad......forget about it.........no competition really.

Thanks RIM for being innovative. We welcome your future. I would love a Playbook. I'm a minister and would totally use this tool to complement my Torch traveling from conference to conference.


My third try to win a PlayBook! I love that it is made by a homeland Canadian Company. It's such a great product and the software jus works. I've always wanted one since it came out. The gestures, the compact design, the accessories. Not to mention it's a sexy little device. Now that PlayBook OS 2.0 is out it's even better and I wish I could get my hands on one!

I love the multi-tasking ability of the PlayBook. Nothing can match playing a friend in Asphalt 6 while talking to them via video chat.

Would love to be the winner this week so I can share it with my family. Exciting stuff happening with blackberry these days.

I'm loving my PlayBook, it's awesome for watching movies on the go and it's a kick ass Ebook reader if you pay $0.99 for the the excellent Book Reader for EPUB app. Screw Kobo, RIM should make that the Default reading app on PlayBook.

While I don't need another PlayBook, I would love to give one to my Sister and her Husband as an anniversary Gift.

I love Crackberry because its Canadian, a great source of information and often entertaining! I'm on everyday! I wouild love to win a Blackberry Playbook!

New contacts and calendar app are the best in the business! BlackBerry PlayBook is perfect for me!

Like to communicate video calling with many deaf friends all over the world using BB Playbook gadget with the help of face-to-face and sign language. So, pl pick me up this week...

I love how they are integrating things now - only one browser instead of a separate wifi and bridge browser (makes sense), along with integrated PIM functions. I know if I were to win, I'd probably carry it everywhere!

I've been a BlackBerry fan since 2002 and even though we've had some bad days, we've also had good (perfect) days, and let me tell you that they've been awesome! Business Productivity, Games & other stuff are some of the things that I love to do with my BB Phone (and hopefully with my future-to-be BlackBerry PlayBook :D ). I appreciate what CrackBerry founders (bb-fan-freaks) do, because they made my path easier than ever. Thanx and enjoy!

I already have a playbook but I could REALLY use some accessories such as a dock to stand it in! That would be so great! :)

Loving the remote control feature with the bridge to my torch. So easy to watch a movie on my high definition. Also the OS is smooth like butter baby.

Actually, i've just bought myself a Playbook, and i would love for my sister to have one aswell! Since i lost my job last week, i can't afford one for her. So i will take my chances here, thanks to Crackberry who made that possible. :-)
The Playbook is still quite expensive in Norway, $550 for the 16gb version!

I love the way teh playbook is different to other tablets they established their niche and thy should stick with it. C'mon Playbook!

I love that with OS 2.0 the haters now have nothing to say lol.

Bold 9700 + 64GB Playbook and lovin' it.

Love the Playbook form factor. iPad is nice but when I want to just relax and read I need something smaller. A Playbook would be nice :)

Love how BlackBerry is a bit more functional and practical rather than doing things simply for the wow-factor. Hope they keep that value in the company and not change just to be like the other companies.

I love the integrated msging app on the OS 2.0!! It brings everything together, so simple, so perfect.

Ok, I'll try to give a little back as my submission/comment.
So I'm going to post some things that could make out little tablet even better than it already is.

First things first. Other than here on CB, how do I contact RIM to let them know my ideas about their product? Maybe a page on their website would be cool?

Next. Ok, I think I remember an article on CB sometime last year about the PB's bezel actually being touch sensitive. Can we utilize those bezels to add extra functionality? Maybe turn them into scroll bars for web pages? Two fingers sroll by pages?

I remember reading a post somewhere about RIMs role in providing the man power to develop
software and apps for specific markets like music production and such. I can't agree more. However, I think best first line of software to develop shod not be music or pictures as that's kinda already Apples cake an would be silly to try to wrestle TFT away from that monster
I think RIM would be better off sticking to a much bigger market that they are already leaders in. Business. However, let's move from human to human communication and move to what could make this thing a best seller.

point of sale data input for retail and restaurants. IE: server(waitress) takes you order and the playbook connects to a (host playbook?) server(mainframe, not waiter)
Info portals for inventory: IE, when that order is takes, it takes inventory from the stock and updates so the invoice is made, inventiry numbers update...

For this to happen, they playbook will new to be able to see file structures and edit them, in a network.

Sorry, started to ramble. I have a shit load of ideas RIM. I could use a job too so if you need practical ideas guy.

Why do I love playbook. Simple, it has potential when we compare it with other tablets, only problem is slow development... :(

i would like one to use for work. As i am on the road everyday, i could keep track of customers info. My work would never spend money on this. We still do billings with paper !!!
This device would go great with my B.B. phone.
Thanks CB

I dunno about everyone else, but the main feature I adore with the update is the ability to use "Open on". I despise viewing spreadsheet attachments on my BB Torch (and I get a hell of a lot of 'em via BES around health-checks with pie charts and so on), so I just use open on now to get it up and running on the PB. It truly is a remarkable piece of ingenuity. That said, I'd absolutely love another PB so I could gift it to my dad. He despises using the PC so this'll make it really simple for him to do what he needs to do.

Got to borrow an ipad2 yet I still find myself going back to the mall to keep trying out the playbook (since most people in the Philippines have iPads).

Beyond the games, there isn't much going for the ipad. I know I need something more compact to bring along everyday. I think I will get to actually do some work with a PLAYbook...weird but true!

Bridge will do the trick coz ibluever wireless tethering is just a pain to use with my blackberry.

I'd love to win this baby.....2.0 brought us a lot of the missing ingredients, like native email.

I work as a teacher's assistant, and having a playbook would be a wonderful tool to use as an educational teaching aid. Especially to use for some of the students that are mentally challenged. The possibilities are endless and I love the portability and size of the playbook. According to what I have learned about the playbook, it's an excellent tablet, the hardware is top notch. The Crackberry site is the best!!! I enjoy reading all the news, reviews and tips. Thank you for the contests and all the work you put into this site. Keep up the good work. I am definitely a fan!!!

Let me have one pleeeease)

I leave comment on 3 week so far, i really need it :(

Please Crackberry, make a present for me:(

I often check for blackberry news on ur website, currently using bold 9700. I would love to win the playbook!

What I love about Crackberry is the fact that it is the ONLY place I need to go to know what's going on in the Blackberry world.

I don't know what I love about PB because I don't have one, that's why I'm in this contest:-) But I do love cracberry for giving us some many opportunities to win something:-)

I wish I could say what I love abou PlayBook and 2.0, but I can't because I've never been able to tey out or own a PlayBook! Let the 3rd time be the charm CrackBerry! Please hook me up with a PlayBook!

OS 2.0 brought the real google map to the Playbook and I love the fact that you can download 10 maps (a big city) for when you go on vacation and your out of your data plan

Why do I like CrackBerry.com? Well, apart from getting all the latest BB news, I mostly enjoy the specific CrackBerry-style in which the articles are written. I like the humor, the irony - you can't find that at other Tech-Blogs :)!

*single* The new OS is amazing. The competitors will no doubt try but they will have a hard time keeping up.

I think that the Playbook is great and OS2 just makes a great thing even better. Love the native messages so I can use it all day with and without my mobile

There is only one word that I would use to define the Blackberry Playbook - Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! :D How I wish i had one of them. :) Hoping to get one. :P

Please could I win this one. Please, I would love to be able to use it to video chat more easily with my wife's family in Aus.

I would love love love a BB PlayBook to help me keep organized and play games :P
Keep these amazing contests coming CrackBerry!! Love you guys!!

Love the crackberry team. Kevin, Adam, B1aze, and Chris, you guys rock. And with OS 2.0 its now a more complete solution. Love that my phone and tab are tools not toys :)

Would love to win a Playbook!
I'm a blackberry addict addicted to crackberry.com for all the latest news, reviews, and rumors related to Blackberry!!!

I have the competitor tablet supplied by work and would love a PB for home to pair with my 9930.

I have an android phone but I love the playbook (or at least what I have seen of it in the store) My tablet needs are not big so I would really appreciate this.
