CrackBerry's celebrating its 7th birthday with a giveaway… and it's not a BlackBerry!

CrackBerry's celebrating its 7th birthday with a giveaway… and it's not a BlackBerry!

Our friends at CrackBerry are celebrating their 7th birthday this week (as if they needed a reason to celebrate this week), and they're doing it by giving away a batch of cool stuff. Oh, and it's cool not-BlackBerry stuff.

"What kind of cool not-BlackBerry stuff?" you ask? How about this:

Entering this contest is as easy as you might think: just leave a comment on this post on saying which one of those seven prizes you'd like to win. Entries are open until Sunday at midnight Pacific Time. Commenting is easy — as a member of WPCentral, your Mobile Nations Passport account already logs you in to CrackBerry. Just click on over and enter away!

You are doing it all wrong. You have to post here. ;)

Sarang68 says:

I would like a black berry fruit!

andrew1967 says:

Commenting on this post, yay I win,.

Tips_y says:

Shouldn't they be giving away BB10 devices as prizes instead? I won't mind winning a Z30! :)

Micah Dawson says:

How old is wpcentral

5 years ;) first post was made on 3rd jan 2009 ; here is the first article :-

Oct. 10, 2010, the day before WP7 launched.

mrskycar says:

Appreciate both articles. Trivia learned.

titoyees says:

Wow! This is a copy-pasted article! Without any edition for

Just read the last paragraph... 

"...Commenting is easy — as a member of Android Central, your Mobile Nations Passport account already logs you in to CrackBerry."

k0de says:

Slow news week. Lol, good observation.

It's all mobile nations anyway.

Jf.Vigor says:

I'm pretty enamored by the sonos systems and planned to get a few soon as I moved into my apt. I would love to get the sonos play 1 and bridge to get things rolling!

Harsh Gaurav says:

We want wpc b'day...

anierinwp says:

Oh how I would love the pebble smart watch. (metal one)

Nik Rolls says:

Maybe read the article, and also the first comment, making it clear not to post here to enter ...

Lets all email he/she to never post a email publicly again!

Nik Rolls says:

I wasn't being harsh, just surprised that they could read the entire post to know what was up to be won but miss the paragraph and first comment that said not to post here ;-)

wpguy says:

> The Nest Learning Thermostat, because who doesn't need a connected thermostat in their life.

Me. But I'll gladly take one of the other prizes. Maybe the Fitbit, to encourage me to get off my lazy butt to adjust the thermostat, like we did in the olden days.

k0de says:

Not so. They just bump MSFT on Fords embedded Systems.

WPCentral hasn't had a real giveaway (like a PHONE) in a long time, whole the other sites do a lot. Makes me sad. :'(

i need surface pro :D

k0de says:

I want the Levono think pad 8.

Sam Sabri says:

Wait for 8.1? ;)

k0de says:

Cool Sam is that for the Surface, Levono, both or we don't know?

kingjah says:

I wanna wp8.1 !phone.

I hope BB pulls a miracle and comeback, or become a close partner w/windows phones.

Their knowledge of the enterprise and Gov space is vast and intimate. If anything, I'd like to say thanks for all my BB memories!

Maaz Mansori says:

I guess it's my turn to question the relevance. What does this have to do with WP? Do any of those prizes even have a WP app?

I can understand posting about Nokia X, AT&T, and Microsoft products in general because there is some minor relevance but I don't get this one at all.


NykoAlly says: stuff?

Promoting a contest at a sister site, with cool stuff for the winner.  Not relevant to WP but I just went over and entered.

txDrum says:

They're sister sites. That means related I.e congratulations on their seventh birthday ain't that weird

myfyp2 says:

Happy birthday, CrackBerry!

dabberz3 says:

Do any of these prizes work with WP? I'm really not all that familiar with the prizes myself. :x

TJWINS says:

I am now a Lumia 920 user but I still have fond memories of my Bold 9900. Other than the app selection and overall ecosystem I could do much more on my old BlackBerry than I can on my current Lumia barring any help from 3rd party apps.

Clavitox says:

Are you serious? My ex had a bold 9780(I know its older) and honestly we never really found anything special about it besides the keyboard

TJWINS says:

Attach and download anything to email, read receipts for email, calendar crushes WP, user selectable snooze for reminders, word substitution, default calendar settings, custom ringtones for each app, custom volume for each notification, BBM, mark text messages as unread, and I can keep writing for hours. Bottom line is I used it for business and a good business phone needs good email, calendar, and notifications. BlackBerry crushes WP in these categories. So while I love my Lumia and will be with WP for the future to be honest if BlackBerry had the ecosystem and app selection that WP has I would go back in a heartbeat. Hopefully WP8.1 will change my mind as it looks to fill many voids that are currently present in WP

Loelie says:

Happy birthday crackberry!

irsyadhhs says:

I know why crackberry doesnt make blackberry as a prize HAHAHA LOL

mrskycar says:

Not necessarily the case as CB has given away many phones but I will chuckle with you.

Flagz says:

Seems like tech events and promotional review item leftovers, and I'm still interested!!!

I would love a Jaybbuds Bluebuds!

SwimSwim says:

So... A bunch of stuff that has a sub-par experience due to lack of official apps for Windows Phone? No thanks...

rubenbest says:

#teamwindowsphone? Anyone?

k0de says:

Happy B-day crack berry. And congrats on a mini come back for bumping MSFT off the Ford embedded Systems. Kind regards. Oh I almost forgot and thank you for bringing BBM to Windows Phone. Thanks for the love men.

Philips hue starter set

Velmurugan says:

Aashish13 says:

LaNiQuE says:

Congrats CrackBerry

Blackberry is dead

Brazil01 says:

Oooh,I'd really like to win a pair of them Jaybird Bluebuds X headphones. Happy Birthday Crackberry.

karthikt94 says:

I'd like a pebble smart watch cause its the only smart watch not tied to any particular mobile OS and its successful.

97_fuller says:

I would like a Pebble Smartwatch!

spyridon says:

No offence to those who wrote here what prize they want because they believe here is the place to write it. Honestly people seems to read and either do not understand what they read or understand what they want to understand. I think it couldn't be more clear how to enter the contest but people still write here what they would like to win. Makes me think that i shouldn't take so seriously lots of comments for any topic, in any forum...

Martsicky says:

+1 its clearly said where to post, also Derek wrote a first comment explaining once again and linking Crackberry contest site... XD

Lol there are more than 5k comments on that article. XD

Polkka says:

BB sucks.. And WP8 but i love You nokia.. Sad :(

NukeKid says:

Fit it Flex. Thank you.

NukeKid says:

Fitbit Flex. Autocorrect issue.

nb100 says:

You need to post on crackberry site.

MrSimmix says:

Dem earphones O.o

DavidinCT says:

I entered, I never win anything but, still cool. Even though BB is dead for the most part, still Happy birthday to the site...

I would have been fine with a Blackberry device, but those are some damn fine prizes. 



I'll take the pebble thanks guys. Continue to be the #1 site for mobiles news and reviews
