THE CONTEST IS NOW OVER – THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING. OUR TWO WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.
We’re delighted to announce a contest giveaway of two of the new BlackBerry Playbooks. The Playbook is an exciting new compact tablet from BlackBerry. We’re giving away two 16 GB Playbooks as part of the Small Business Influencer 2011 nominations.
About the BlackBerry Playbook
The Playbook is BlackBerry’s new tablet, released less than 2 months ago. It is under a half-inch thick, and has a 7-inch display which CrackBerry.com says“is small enough to fit in many coat pockets, purses, handbags, etc., making it much more portable for out-of-the-home use than Apple’s iPad.”
The Playbook uses WiFi to connect to the Internet. It is not necessary to have a BlackBerry smartphone, but if you do, there is a unique Bluetooth connection called the BlackBerry Bridge that allows you to display your BlackBerry smartphone screen on the Playbook, too.
If you’d like a shot at winning one of these hot new Playbooks, read on….
