Win Kevin's Porsche Design BlackBerry!
By Kevin Michaluk on 15 May 2012 02:06 pm EDT

3 Ways To Win: Leave a comment to this post or follow @crackberrykevin on twitter and add +Kevin Michaluk to your circles on Google+. Do all three for three chances to win!

* Update - May 15th, 2012: OK folks, this is it. Today is the final day to get entered to win my Porsche Design BlackBerry! If you're not in on the contest yet, what are you waiting for?! I'll be announcing the winner here tomorrow on CrackBerry! *

Original Post - April 27th, 2012: As the world's #1 BlackBerry Fanboy, I take pride in always having the latest and greatest BlackBerry. So when the $2,000 Porsche Design P'9981 Smartphone from BlackBerry went on sale in North America, I just had to have it. The P'9981 is an exclusive (and expensive!) smartphone that gets a *lot* of attention thanks to its distinct styling and limited availability. As I mentioned in my P'9981 Review, you kind of feel like a celebrity just owning one.

And as much I enjoy using the P'9981 and being a member of the newly-formed Club P'9981 owners group, I've decided it's time to pay my P'9981 forward to a lucky member of the CrackBerry community. As was pointed out to me in an email I received from a reader earlier this week, the Fearless Leader of CrackBerry Nation should rock a BB more representative of the 99% of CrackBerry Nation, not the < 1%. I couldn't agree more. So I'm back on my white Bold 9900 and my P'9981 is up for grabs! 

How to Win Kevin's P'9981: So this is it... your chance to win my slightly used but not abused Porsche Design BlackBerry. And because this contest prize is so awesome, I'm going to give you three ways and three chances to win:

  • Chance #1 - Leave a single comment to this post (tell me why you want my P'9981!)
  • Chance #2 - Follow me on twitter: @crackberrykevin
  • Chance #3 - Add me to your circles on Google+: +Kevin Michaluk

That's it. Do any of the above and you're entered. This contest is open worldwide. Contest ends May 15th at Midnight PST. The winner will be announced May 16th (my birthday!). Best of luck! And let's hope OS 7.1 is available for the P'9981 by the time you get my P'9981! :)

Win a FREE $2,000 Porsche Design BlackBerry courtesy of CrackBerry Kevin!



I havent entered a contest for a long time here but I could not resist the chance of winning with one.

After see the porsche-design-blackberry on BlackBerry World , I just fall in love with it!
It's so eager to win it!!
And finally, say Happy Birthday to Kevin (even it's a little bit early) :)

This phone is hot! I'm a car nut so of course Porsche and Blackberry is an awesome combo in my book. Also I wanted a 9900 so this would get me close.
It would be pretty awesome to win this when it's announced the day I get back from Vegas. haha
BTW there is a store in I think its MGM that has this phone on display

I would love to win your BlackBerry P'9981! I've been trying to get a BlackBerry for a while now. I switched to android and it was the worst mistake of my life. I want to be part of BlackBerry again!

I am 68 years old. My daughter started me on blackberry 5 years ago and has been updating me ever since. Last year she got me the 9900. I cannot expect her to get me the Porsche design. Howver, I must have it so please send it after the 15th. You will make an old techie very happy.

Since leaving my BlackBerry, I have been missing it ever since! This would be such an amazing phone to have! I really hope I win!

I'm new here. I only own a Playbook, but I'm very impressed so far, especially for the price. Good luck everyone!

I know it's Porsche-inspired, but I get inspired to use it on a hoverboard with Huey Lewis playing in the background. "Where we're going, we don't need roads."

I would be the coolest kid on the block if I won that phone. I need to get a new phone anyways might as well be that one. I would be glad to take it off your hands.

Would love to be a winner here on CB "for a change" haha! Seriously though great to see the CB contests stepping it up! Now if you guys could just do this with a BB10 device before the release. Keep up the great work on my #1 favorite "healthy" addiction! :D

I've been a webOS faithful since day 1, but a Porsche Blackberry will definitely get me batting for the other maligned and marginalized mobile OS. :D

I do not remember if I had left a comment earlier, so leaving it once again. And who needs a reason to win P'9981, you just got to win it :)

"One thing that sets me apart from my friends is the endless desire to make them jealous, I could really use this ....... "

I would love to win the P'9981 because I managed to break my Bold 9900 and have to live with an old Nokia now! So the P'9981 would be the best thing on earth!

Dear Kevin,

i would very much L O V E to own this phone! I do live in Germany and i am already a porsche & blackberry fanatic - this would be my absolute DREAM choice!

mixing those two brands together is definetely my most-wanted product of all time and makes it truly exceptionel!

Please let me win :)


I am confident that the BB Porsche will never be seen in action here in the Philippines. If I'll win crackberry kevin's phone heads will turn and BB smartphones will be #1 in my country over iOS, windows or even android. Ftw!

I want your Porsche Design P'9981 because I want to go back to a BlackBerry phone (especially one that is as stylish as this one) and be able to ditch my iphone 4!

i have Porsche Adidas shoes. once i get a Porsche blackberry, it'll be time to buy a Porsche car lol.

also, i've probably convinced over 20 ppl to get blackberrys AND have defended them through thick and thin.

pick meeee :)

It will go perfect with my circa 1996 Porsche 911 poster which I still have in hopes that one day I will be able to buy one!

I will add this one to my BlackBerry collections, I have been collecting since the first blackberry and they are in great working conditions.

I would love to win this for my wife ! I always stumble to find her a great gift for everything she does for me and our 2 daughters and I think this would be AWESOME ! As she is a amazing wife and mother and I'm sure she'd love this!! And thanks for a chance @ trying to win this !!

Kevin you have outdone yourself once again. You and your CrackBerry team are always on point with your contest.

On that note, The Porsche Design P'9981 is defiantly a phone that grows on you. Beyonce owns one and Ckrackberry Kevin Owns one.... Man I would defiantly like to own one!!! It would be cool to have something that only Celebrities like you have!
I have been a follower since Feb, 2008. I love BlackBerry and now matter what iphone or android gets released. I can't ever seem to go their route. I love a the Keyboard, I currently have a 9900N I think its the best phone ever released thus far. But the P'9981 is defiantly a collectors item! I would love to own one and say "Yea you can't have this" "This use to belong to CrackBerry Kevin!" I would definitely stand out from my friends that own BlackBerry's and it would be cool to own a phone that is part of BlackBerry History.

I am a CrackBerry addict all day. Apps , shortcuts, leaks, themes, wallpapers, news, updates, rumors, and most of all a FAN!

Kevin, thanks for the awesome contest! You and the Crackberry team always know how to out do yourself!

PS this would look nice along side my Playbook!!!

I would love to have a porche! Its beautiful no matter what anyone says. I am the greatest blackberry fan along side kevin and would love to own the greatest blackberry!

I love BBs. I've had one cince the 8830(yes that long) I've tried android and icrap but I always come back to my first love, my 9900 and before that the 9000. And just to top it off its been used by a bigger crackberry addict!

Id love this because its as close to a porche as Im likely to get...and anyway Id prefer the blackberry lol

If win this device I could be as Famous as Kevin Yeeaaahhh!!! Its like holding something precious from Crackberry God!

Registered here and on Twitter. Odds are against a win, but this is a really sweet contest! Thanks for the chance!

Would definitely appreciate having this phone. I was attracted to its design since the first day the images were leaked.

Hi Crackberry-Team,

i'm a poor student from Germany. I need a new phone, thursday will be my birthday and the only wish that makes sense is money, so I can stay alive, pay my bills and buy food. A new phone is not on the list :

Plus: since Porsche is the car of my dreams, of course the Porsche Design suits that dream pretty well...

Cheers and greetings from Germany anyway

I'd love to win this porsche blackberry because they dont sell this one in holland but i love this one with everything. i've just started developing apps for the bb platform and i know that this bb will only make me want to work harder and harder.

arising from the ashes with a new song

Your RIM coverage has been great...
Particularly enjoyed the Videos from BBW...
Helped with my investment decisions and looking forward to BB10

Thank You

gotta have this baby
women love men who have money
this phone will give the user the impression
of a very wealthy and successful person.
porsche p'9981 = chick magnet

Would absolutely love to have a P'9981. I have a BBPB-64 and love it, but have never owned a BB of any type. I've got to experience the features and capabilities of the paired P'9981 and the BBPB. Time for the doors of productivity to open. Kevin, send that baby my way... @Skimmer90

I like this BB as it is unique and inugualable would be the center of attention in every place you go, would be very special to win this device! h and only one way to have it and that is CrackBerry

New to the Blackberry Family, and this would be the most totaly awesomest addition to my hopefully growing blackberry line of products!

hoping to win very much sir!

wow would really love to win this.....if i win this i think i would be the only one in my country with this phone....i would get mad reps...

Why would I want the Blackberry P'9981?? Because Kevin had it,

It would be useful and noticeable to my line of work. It will either get me noticed and bring up my standing, or it will get more work handed to me.
Either it would be worth it to have.

It totally rocks! It would really get me some ladies! if you know what I mean! haha

And because I don't win anything from raffles and lotteries @_@

Business man here, City Council Member I have a Bold 9930, but I need a device that could keep up with my busy schedule. Please! I need the P'9981

Ok. I hope that i get that gift . After i will have a interesting set.
My BB porshe design with my Porshe panamera 4S.
Are both equal perfomances.
Enjoy the styl, the speed , the high perfomace on start.....
Cheers people

I would Love to Win the P9981! My Blackberry is so old and worn out it has one foot in the Grave. It was a hand-me-down from my son because my Curve bit the dust. I can't live without a Blackberry. I desperately need a new one with a Camera. Make my Mothers Day Please! A Mama without a Camera is bad enough but this Mama without a Blackberry is Unthinkable! Thanks for the Opportunity to Win! This Mama Needs a Blackberry! I am in it to Win It!

wow.. its like 1 in million chance :), Well its better than my 9000 and I believe more apps and features in the phone can make me more alive in social world ;) thanks kevin!

thanks kevin if you read this, you already in my G+ circle and my twitter..
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! YEaaaaayyy!!! (is it too early? hmmm.. i'll send it again on 16th May) :))

It will be amazing...I need to change my old 9800, not money for that now...and even though wouldn't be able to afford that phone ever...Good luck everyone...

sshhhh...but will be look amazing with my PB

It would be awesome if I won this phone I have had many phones in the past but have always come back to blackberry and with this phone I would never use another and it would be taken care of very well :)

I want a replacement to my old and trusty Bold 9000, and I want to show that a Blackberry could be as well designed as an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S II.


I have a bold 9930 for work, and a playbook for personal use, would love a P9981 for a personal BB...especially to have a phone I can use with my playbook (bridge). So pick me, Big Guy!!!

It would be ibcreadible to win this! Been on a bad luck streak as of late :( need some need some CBK good luck! Would want my wife to have it so she could show all her iPhone co workers how awesome the P'9981 is.

Honestly I don't know why I want it other than it being different and unique. Being able to standout is always welcomed. So, hopefully I win.

Such an awesome phone would definitely speak volumes to all who claim Blackberry is dead! Let me show it off!!

Im very unlucky when it come to raffles or any kind of contests. Hopefully Kevin will change that and I will be the first winner outside Canada. :) Long Live Blackberry. Been a Blackberry fan since I got my first BB Curve 8900 > 9700 > 9780 > 9800 and now 9900.

Well, I think I should win because I'm trying to make a transition back to Blackberry, & I think this would be the PERFECT phone. I currently have an iPhone (as well some most of my friends and family) & to be able to have your P'9981 would really set me apart from everybody else! It would be an honor to own a Blackberry who's previous owner was Crackberry Kevin! ;-)

If i do win this, It's gonna be an amazing present i'll ever have for my Birthday next month.
Good-luck with the contest everyone :)

i'm Zahir an IT student in Abu Dhabi

let me win this phone... i will love to be part of the 1% and not the 99% atleast once!!!!!!! kelvin pick me.. lol

I would love it if you chose me because I am a BB addict, I have a curve so this would be a MAJOR upgrade, and I think it's a damn sexy phone!

So many people, so many reasons. I would love to get P'9981 because it stands out in the crowd as no other phone.

Why you should choose me? I have my birthday on May 17th, day after you, Kevin, it would be FABULOUS birthday present.

Thanks in advance ;)

Crackberrykevin I folllow you on twitter, not a fan of Google +, and I'm always on finding out news of RIM Blackberry. This is my first time leaving a comment so if I was to win I would case the P'9981 in a glass case and even label it as Crackberrykevin P'9981!! Wanted to also mention that if I was to purchase a blackberry before I do I always watch a video by crackberry or you to make sure it meets my needs.

Also wanted to mention I got a front page newspaper on how blackberry is going down! I'm keeping that until bb10 comes out and changes so I can prove everyone wrong! Thanks!

Please! I'd be the only person in my country (Argentina) to own a P'9981! Now that's what I call VIP! bling bling!

Crackberry Kevin, I would love your P'9981 because I think it's the most badass looking phone on the market. AND the day you're picking the winner just so happens to be my birthday; just sayin.

I'm a huge advocate of all Blackberry products, and even when my friends decided to move away from Blackberry, I am always opting to go with Blackberry. I have a Blackberry Playbook (waiting for the keyboard to arrive! :)), a Blackberry Bold 9900, and I would love to be the winner of the P'9981 Porsche Design Blackberry. I'm sure many people are probably going to sell it, but I plan to use it and show support of such a great device. Thanks for the opportunity!!

I would love this Porsche due to the fact that I can't afford the four wheel kind!! Love my berries but would love a Porsche!!!!

Do second posts count? Well! As I said before, I'd LOVE to have this fine piece of sm-ART-phone. I'd be the only one in my country to own this thing for sure... now that's what I call exclusivity!

I always dreamed of owning a porsche and I'm a hardcore BB fan since the rim 857 days !!! The P9981 is my closest I'll ever get to a porsche brand item !!!

I always dreamed of owning a porsche and I'm a hardcore BB fan since the rim 857 days !!! The P9981 is my closest I'll ever get to a porsche brand item !!!

I'm looking to get rid of my Android phone and pick up the first BB10 with a physical keyboard, but this phone would sure be a great transition now!

that phone looks so awesome would be killin the caribbean with a phone like that.1 love.loving your reviews.

The coolest masterpiece design of blackberry ..
BTW , thumbs up for the idea promoting google + ..
am a big fan of the G+ ...

I would love to win the BlackBerry P'9981 cause.. Well, who wouldn't want this special edition BB from the CB don himself?! And... Now following @crackberrykevin . - @bluee_dreamin

The two best technologies for a working person. What a great day top down BB Porsche mobile while being mobile Thanks

My wife has a old Bold 9000 with a damaged speaker, so it doesn't ring, just win this would finally allow her to go out IN STYLE (and allow me to actually reach her!)

Crossing our fingers!


It is a little hard to tell you why I love your P'9981.

At Oct 2010, I was looking for informations about BlackBerry and I found here and Kev.
It was so amazing to me.
It was so special and warming here.
I learned much here from forums, and got knowing what the BlackBerry is.
Finally, I shot down my Nokia and turned to BB 9800 at Feb 2011.

Year past, I love here more and more and the same to my BB.

Everythings and activities here always make me very exciting.
This time, the activity excites me again.
Because this activity is opened WORLDWILD!
Because it is Kevin's P'9981!
Because the day is Kevin's BIRTHDAY!

I am really very happy to joint this contest, and hope to win KEVIN'S LOVE!


Me gustaria ver cuanto de impuestos me cobraria aduana por "traer" ese telefono a Mexico...

No me importa, aun asi lo quiero!!!

I would like to see how much tax do i have to pay for bringing it to Mexico...

i dont care, i still want IT!!!!

Give it to me Crackberry Kevin!! This would be greatest story of my life!!

The reason i want a P'9981 is to get my first experience with a blackberry. I've seen many blackberry users and i've always been interested especially with blackberry 10 coming out now so i would love to join this Bandwagon and it is also a cool lookin phone.

BB4LIFE; don't know where I'd be without my BlackBerry:)

-Curve 3G
-Torch 9800

Past Phones;
-LG Xenon
-Nokia C3
-Motorola RAZR
-Samsung Hype

I would love to win, just because I love the way RIM produce beautiful products. But as full-time and unpaid athlete I can't afford one. Winning would not just give me a working phone, it would also invite me to the Crackberry world.

this would be amazing to have only because i'll never actually be able own a porsche so this would be the closest thing lol

I'd love to win this BlackBerry. My Torch recently reached the end of it's life and I'd really really LOVELOVELOVE this Porsche BlackBerry. I'd use it 24/7 and LOVEEE it (: I hope I can win this, as I love BlackBerry's!

The reason why I'd like to win the phone, is that I would give it to my brother so he could become a blackberry fan too.

Pleaseeee oh please!!! I was planning my return back to BlackBerry in October to coincide with the BB10 launch, but perhaps this would tempt an earlier return!
