BlackBerry DevCon begins tomorrow, calls Android developers to have their apps ported for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Our pals at CrackBerry.com have had a tough day. Their beloved PlayBook tablet — you know, the only BlackBerry Tablet in existence — won't be upgraded to BB10. Not exactly a shock, especially to those of us who are used to seeing 2-year-old devices be put out to pasture with even less fanfare. At least these guys got a warning.

Anyhoo. CB's giving away a tablet — anything other than a PlayBook, we s'pose — with a contest running through the end of July 1. Seeing as how so many of you fine Android Central readers jumped ship way back when (and we know who you are), might as well lend a hand here.

Good luck!

how do i win

That's okay. They'll probably come out with a new tablet that runs BB10 anyway. I didn't read their reasoning, but maybe the hardware wasn't good enough, or they didn't want to waste their resources and time on an old device from the RIMM days. It's simply time to move forward with Thorstein at the reigns. Thank god Mike Lizzardidddisisis has been removed.

just get a bb10 theme for android and install that on a tablet...

just get a bb10 theme for android and install that on a tablet...

Wasn't it obvious....????
That u can't have bb10 on playbook....
The hardware just wasn't enough....
I am currently owner of a Samsung omnia w ( two year old wp7.5 mango device )
And unable to install any major update of wp8...
Due to a sucky 1.4 ghz single core processor...
(wp8 requires multi core )
Same difference is between bb10 and playbook

SumthinNew says:

The playbook was the first device running QNX OS; which is the base of BB10.
It's more than capable to get majority of BB10 functionality!

codiusprime says:

Your processor speed has nothing to do with why you can't run WP8.

Also I'd love to win a tablet which runs on the king of all os i.e. Android....
And that too in a giveaway associated with a site i love the most.... <3

Moo Cow says:

I loved the video they made. Gave me a cheap laugh that I much needed today because I'll be honest, a bad day at work made me wanna go all Office Space on some equipment, and well, that video fit the bill.

Baleeted says:

It may because I'm currently irresponsible due to inebriation but that video was hilarious. RIP BB-PB

TheDu9du says:

Sometimes you sound like my boss, I don't like that.

I will never win.

trpilexxx says:

Seeing as I have never owned any kind of tablet I wouldn't mind trying it out. Thanks for the opportunity.

Yeah when I linked my accounts a little while ago, I was like hey there are all my crackberry posts! lol.. I totally resemble this remark.

Does it count as jumping ship if you play with 4 devices on all 4 major platforms? ;)

Galaxy K says:

I hope Black Berry can stay in the game, I also hope Microsoft can stay in the game. I don't want the Smartphone wars to just be Android vs iPhone.

Hm, glad I unloaded mine on eBay before this announcement! I didn't get a lot for it, but it paid for more than half of my Hisense Sero Pro...on which I can do All The Things.

LadyDi says:

Thanks for this contest AndroidCentral and Crackberry. I've never owned a Blackberry products and if I won, this would be a learning experience for a newbie to this OS.

carraser891 says:

Why in two years hasn't RIM come up with a successor? No wonder they suck.

A tablet from AC would sure be cool!

Any tablet is a good tablet! Sad that BB is leaving the Playbook behind, but I've always been curious about the Surface! Maybe today is my lucky day!!!

For what purpose they break a tablet?! It's still a money okay??

I bet they can't even give that thing away. Pretty sad really. I think RIM has already lost the war and doesn't even know it yet.

Tell that to the CrackBerry members. They are still in denial. They have a very bind loyalty to that brand.

WebOS was supposed to be the next big thing and it was killed by mismanagement. I'd like to have it for history sake.
