Tell us what BlackBerry should do next, and win one of two custom-made CrackBerry Clocks!

To say it's an interesting time in BlackBerry's history would be the understatement of the year. Folks are weighing in with their passionate opinions about where the company should go, what they should do, and how they should execute it.

With that in mind, I thought this would be a perfect chance to run a little contest to get YOUR thoughts on the matter.

So… here's the deal:

What we need you to do is head over to the official contest thread and tell us in essay format what YOU think it's time for BlackBerry to do next. Flood the market with new devices? Strengthen and expand carrier partnerships? Encourage app growth? Give us your thoughts, in detail.

We will select two of the very best essays and feature them in the blogs. On top of that, the winning entries will receive one of two custom-made clocks, courtesy of our friends at

That's all there is to it. Start writing your essays now... good luck!

The contest is open worldwide and will end Sunday, August 4th at midnight PST.
