This weekend we are happy to announce we are giving away another BlackBerry Q5, this time thanks to the great team over at Virgin Mobile Canada! This is extra exciting because Virgin Mobile Members have exclusive access to get their hands on the RED BlackBerry Q5 just before anyone else in Canada, and now you could win one right here! If you're not familiar with the BlackBerry Q5, it's a BlackBerry 10 device with a QWERTY keyboard, reminiscent of the Curve line of legacy BlackBerry devices. As this device has a lower cost, it's perfect for those looking for a less expensive option while not sacrificing any great BlackBerry 10 features.

Entering is easy, as always! Just log in and leave a comment below. Let us know if you prefer the red or the black version, or what your favorite feature of the BlackBerry Q5 is. We'll choose a winner next week and post it on the blogs. Please only one entry per person. If we catch you spamming, you'll be banned from this and future contests. Also note, this prize only functions on the Virgin Mobile Canada network and does not include service. (You can visit virginmobile.ca or call 1-888-999-2321 for more information on their plans and coverage, and to subscribe.) And remember,  with Virgin Mobile, you’re not a customer – you’re a Member. Good luck everyone!

Saw it in person and really impressed with the build quality of the phone like it better then the q10. The red really pops out and would be awesome to use this for work in sales.

Working in Social Development and Finance Administration in Toronto City Hall- it would be funny to see the faces of some people here when they see a Red phone...

The best part of having a red Q5? I'd have a phone that stands out in a crowd of 'normal' Blackberry's AND I would stay just as productive and organized as always! :)

It would also make a nice addition to my City locked Q10..
