WIN a BlackBerry PlayBook in Our April Rewards Contest!


There is something to be said about keeping to tradition and in that strain we have decided to continue our tremendously successful BerryReview Rewards Contest. After giving away a BlackBerry PlayBook every month since January the BerryReview BlackBerry Unlock Store, your #1 source for BlackBerry unlock codes, has offered to continue it into April! The rules are mostly the same but we are switching up the selection  and entry process a little bit. Read on for more details on how to win your choice of a either a free BlackBerry PlayBook (16GB model) or a $500 Amazon/PayPal gift certificate!

With the BlackBerry PlayBook launching on April 19th many of you want to get your hands on one. All you have to do to enter the BerryReview Rewards Contest for April is simply leave a comment, forum post, and/or tip submission during the month of April 2011. This month we are also including all “Retweets” of BerryReview articles on Twitter as extra entries to win! The selection process will be a bit different this month with us choosing a finalist from each of the categories (comments, forum posts, tips, Retweets) and then having our judge select the winner out of those four. Every comment, forum post, Retweet, and/or tip submission counts as another entry so get cracking!

Throwingpapersintheair So here is what you need to know about the rules:

  • The contest is sponsored by the BerryReview Unlocking Store. Your number one choice for BlackBerry unlock codes.
  • To be entered to win all you have to do is continue doing what you do best, contributing to BerryReview.
  • Every comment, forum post, and tip submission you make on BerryReview during the month of April 2011 will be counted as an entry to win. ‘”Retweets” of BerryReview articles on Twitter also count as an entry to win. That means every forum post or comment you contribute increases your chances of winning!
  • You must be registered and logged in to BerryReview when leaving comments for them to be included in the contest.
  • The winner will be chosen by the BerryReview staff in the beginning of May 2011. (Sorry we know this is after the PlayBook is officially launched in the US and Canada but if you already pick one up then a $500 Amazon Gift Certificate should fit perfectly)
  • The winner will have the choice between receiving a BlackBerry PlayBook 16GB model (subject to availability/viability by our discretion) or $500 sent via PayPal or Amazon Gift Certificate towards a gift of your own choice.
  • Official rules and conditions apply

  1. You guys are the best. The best site ever!!!

  2. I am here salivating… tanx in advance.

  3. Thank you for another opportunity to win.

  4. whoohoo another chance to win a playbook. Thank you BR

  5. Thanks,another chance to win Playbook, thanks berryreview

  6. Ooooo, retweets? Watch out twitter! Here come the BR faithful!

  7. I assume it doesn’t matter if we do old or new RTs…does it?

    • Seems in poor test to start retweeting all of Berry Review’s articles dating back for five years, doesn’t it? PLus your twitter account might get blocked for spamming…

    • Nope but the “spammy” rule still applies. You try to retweet every article ever posted on BerryReview in one day and it will be disqualified! :)

      • Meant to reply to this sooner (especially as it counts as a vote) thanks for the clarification Ronen…but you didnt say whether you’re counting Old & New RTs — I wonder b/c as far as I know the only way to track NEW RTs is using a specialized program like Sysomos or Radian6 (which for all I know you guys do use).

        • That is the reason I changed around the contest this month. We simply are using Twitters search API to search for tweets linking to our domain daily and then randomly selecting a winner from there. Twitter is kind enough to parse out the link shorteners in the results so it works.

          Tested it out a few times and was happy with the results. Actually got a few tweaks I am hoping to get in there for future contests.

  8. As a student it would be incredibly useful to have a Playbook for school work as well as play! The playbook is a brilliant device so wuld luv to get one!!!!!!

  9. Hook me up plz!!!! I need one badly it’ll help make my life so much easier!

  10. Hmmm, sorta’ just want a Blackberry Playbook over $500. Nice to have a choice, though.

  11. I didn’t know that retweets counted too?

  12. i think this is mine! 2 times already no wining! so will win this time for sure!

  13. Hopefully April will be my lucky month!

  14. Buahaha! Sweet! Black Eyed Peas wrote a song titled Where’s the love. LOL. It’s here on Berry Review!

  15. Yet again, here we go! Good luck all!

    It’s great of you guys to do this.

  18. Glad to see I have another shot at the Playbook. Winning one is my best shot at seeing one any time soon.

  19. This new criteria looks better than the last few months. Well, keep it up with the improvement guys! :)

  20. Just got my hands on a Playbook today while at the Verizon store. It was only a demo unit for staff to check out so sadly I couldn’t buy one – but I was greatly impressed.

    Unfortunately the only way I’ll be able to get one any time soon is to win one!

  21. 2nd time is the charm, crossing my fingers

  22. me please

  23. PlayBook is coming. I want one

  24. What’s wrong with owning 2 playbooks? lol…awesome that its being run again, really not much else that can be said since this is the 4th straight month and I haven’t seen another contest out there like it.

  25. Oowwwww!!! BlackBerry Playbook I want it so bad waiting since end of last year. Really wanna get one soon! 😀

    Retweets?? Hmm Honestly, I really don’t like use tweets.. FB more better.. :Þ
    sooo good luck then guyss! Gooo get ӵΘµ® PB soon… ^⌣^

    • Was thinking of doing Facebook likes too and might add them later. Just have not found a good way to query that information so we would not be able to easily pick a finalist.

      • Hahahaha yeah maybe.. 😀 To much people on fb.. And not all people use tweets.. Almost said hard to use or comment.. For eg. @RT ????? @…. Really I have no idea with that.. can’t understand what they talking/ask/answer after/before.. :Þ

  45. I think the whole world deserves a playbook!!!!

    I just thought I would share something about skype on playbook. I think we berryreview readers should all send emails to them. C&P of my email and their reply:

    Hello G,
    Thank you for contacting Skype Customer Service.

    However, we are doing our very best to make it possible that Skype will work on all devices.

    However, implementing changes and creating new features can take time, which means that the suggestions you make today might not be available in the near future.

    I enjoy your service and use it a lot. Especially SMS’ing around (have a paid account) the world and planning to get a premium service for group video calling. The only thing that is preventing me is for some reason you have no app for blackberry which I find very disappointing.

    I am planning to get a Blackberry Playbook and I hear you may have an app for it. Don’t see it advertized on your website. Of course rumors are you want people to pay for this app when it is free for all other platforms! If true Why? Seriously disappointed.

    Please release an app for BB. It would be nice if you provide updates or an explanation for the delay and when it is likely to come. Also please do not discriminate against the BB platform by charging for the playbook app when it is free every where else. It is not about the cost (rumored to be 2.99) but the principle!

    A reply would be appreciated. Thanks.



  46. Wow a lot of people participating!!!

    Somehow I feel like Blackberry is making a comeback and the playbook is the poster boy for that comeback. Hopefully with these new tablet and OS 6.1 with the new touch phones, RIM could regain some of the market share it has lost over the years

  47. Glad to see the world has turned around and realized the value of a great playbook. i hope i get one for free

  48. I definitely want one. The world is too stuck on Ipad.

  49. This is good. This is VERY good (or ‘Berry good, considering the contest)!

  50. thanks for the giveaway!

  51. Would love to get my hands on one of these. :)

    thanks for the contest!

  52. This is getting exciting. The closer we get to the giveaway day, the more anxious I get. I hope I win.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  53. Thanks Berry Review for another chance at the PlayBook with this giveaway! I could really use this for the new astronomy online lab class I have develop and teach for my the little community college where I work.

  54. It would be pefect gift for my nameday :)

  55. i wish i can win playbook ,, hey guys do you think its necessary to make an arabic version of berry review ? i can help if you want

    • Thanks for the offer Raed. I don’t know about translations. We use to have a machine translator and received too many complaints about it translating things wrong. I found that translating into each language did not make sense since it was a project with no end.

      • yeah its correct ..but i think many language has there own blogs talk about blackberry i wounder if there is 400 million peoples talk Arabic and there is no special site talk about blackberry ?? i think it gives me an opportunity to have my own site

  56. true multitaskin has been initiated.. i love this device.. yet to be launched in my country.! would be delighted to win one. :)

  57. This could make my day with a Playbook. Am working hard on the boss but not really getting anwhere.

    ” I WON IT, I WON IT” :)

  61. Well guys I’m new member here as I’m fan of Berryreview and Blackberry devices and technologies, I would like to thank all of you guys here that you gave me the chance being with you and may I have the chance to win this month with a playbook :)

  62. Long time thought about a new smartphone and finally choose a BB. If lady luck (the guys from berry review) is with me, I can add a Playbook. Good luck to everyone.

  63. I’m ready for a new phone! Thanks for the contest BerryReview.
