RIM to give away 30 BlackBerry 10 phones in a new contest
You might win a BlackBerry Z10 or a different BB10 model

You might win a BlackBerry Z10 or a different BB10 model

From now through midnight on January 17th, you can enter RIM's BlackBerry 10TO contest and be one of 30 winners. Each winner gets one BlackBerry 10 handset, a case for the phone, and two tickets to the BlackBerry 10TO party in Toronto on or around January 30th. There is a huge caveat. To claim the prize, the winner has to pick it up at the party. It is a clever way for RIM to boost attendance at the shindig.

To enter the contest, all you need to do is Follow BlackBerry on Twitter and tweet "what you are most excited about for BlackBerry 10, and include the hashtag #BlackBerry10TO". Winners will be notified via a Twitter direct message between between January 23, 2013 and January 28, 2013. Only those living in Canada (excluding Quebec) and the U.S. are eligible to enter the contest. You also have to pay for your own transportation to the party. The complete rules and restrictions can be found at the sourcelink. Good Luck!

People already are tired of talks about BlackBerry 10, while other companies are releasing actual devices, RIM is just showing us various lame photos, videos and talking other crap. LESS TALKS MORE ACTION RIM!!! For how long they already are releasing it??? Soon, soon, soon, and still no... I feel that this device will be old even before release day.
It is marketing strategy, they all the time just trying to inflate BlackBerry 10 bubble, but seems that unsuccessfully.

Whos fault is it that everyone is leaking the device. Look at how much went on with the older iPhones and android devices. Nobody got tired of all the leaks, pictures and videos. You say the same s**t in ever blackberry article, go troll somewheres else and make some use of your life.

I'm don't say the same on every BlackBerry article, it is only second time. Also I don't have anything against RIM and it has nothing to do with leaks. RIM is creating BlackBerry 10 whole eternity already and only feeding us with various lame photos, videos and talking other crap and now this contest... And I'm pretty sure that after all we won't see anything WOW!

Ain't nobody got time (or money) to fly to Toronto in the middle of the semester just to pick up a BB10 device. Hopefully, people that actually want to go get the prize, but seriously RIM...you done screwed up again.

I'm a BB fan and hope that they succeed. If we're just left with two platforms things will get stale. Right now I use Android, but when BB10 is released I'll use that. You can be a fanboy all you want, but the fun in all of this is trying new OS's.

WINNERS MUST BE IN ATTENDANCE AT THE EVENT TO CLAIM THE DEVICE AND CASE. DEVICE AND CASE WILL NOT BE SHIPPED TO WINNERS. WINNERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM THE EVENT AND ANY NECESSARY ACCOMMODATIONS. Two Thumbs Down. ###Count me out.### Nice Rules, R.I.M.
