Do You Want My Blackberry Playbook?

Last week on Twitter there was a contest held by Blackberry and 50 lucky people got to attend the Launch Party here in Toronto along with 3 of their friends and each of the 50 guests of honor went home with a 32GB Blackberry Playbook.

I was lucky enough to be one of  the 50 winners, I am a huge blackberry fan and my blackberry has always helped me stay productive and communicating just as I should be.

Tonight it was all about free food, free drinks, great music, mingling with friends and learning  all about the playbook.

Let me just say if you are looking for a productive tablet. The Blackberry Playbook is tibe one you want!

The head of the Enterprise for Blackberry walked me through the playbook and all of its security features. By teathering through the Blackberry Bridge your Blackberry phome becomes like your webserver thus no need to new internet protocols, I can see some IT departments loving that. One of the things i noticed was the amount of work you can actually get done on the tablet, definitely will make productivity a breeze.

As most of you are aware the Blackberry Playbooks was outstanding graphics and well when watching a video the quality was the best I have seen. I also played a game of Tetris( d0n’t get addicted, it will take away from your productivity) and it was easy to manipulate and have some fun.

Overall I do give the playbook a 4/5 as they still have a few things that are needed like more APPS, but we have to remember when the Ipad launched they didn’t have a huge selection out of the gate either. My wish though is for the Skype App, BBM, and one other chat app. Yes I am a big chatter!

Now you night be saying hey Hollie the title says Do you Want My Blackberry Playbook. Well I will be sending this Blackberry Playbook that I won to one of you. You might be saying huh? Why? Well I am a huge blackberry fan, and well really I would love to keep this playbook but as a Mom there is something I want even more.

I am hoping 60 of you will help me get what I want..

My daughter Rachel has never gone to a real summer camp besides 1 when she was 6. She is now 13. She would love to attend the Circus Camp down on the waterfront. Cost $465 for a two week summer camp experience. She would also like to go to Wonderland. Being a mom on a very strict budget I can not afford to either of these for her. To do both this summer I need $600. That is the magic figure. So I am giving up something I love for my daughter to have the summer she deserves.

How can you help and perhaps go home with my Playbook?

Donate $10 to the Rachel Camp Fund- you can send $10 via Paypal to my Paypal Acct at For each $10 you give you get your name in the hat. When $600 is reached. I draw one winner from those of you who have helped send my daughter to camp.

Rachel will thank you and so will I.

I am hoping I have the $600 by May 1st so we can plan her summer and get her registered.  So can you help a Mom send her daughter to camp? and perhaps go home with my Blackberry Playbook? So do you want this?
