UPDATE AUGUST 6, 2011: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED. WE HAVE 2 WINNERS IN OUR RANDOM DRAWING FOR THE PLAYBOOKS. CONGRATULATIONS TO @ChellyElite AND @inkscrblr — THE WINNERS!
Excitement for the Small Business Influencer awards is building. We now have over 50,000 votes from the community — thanks to YOUR support.
And in honor of the great response, we’re giving away another two BlackBerry PlayBooks. The PlayBook is an exciting new compact tablet, and thanks to our premiere sponsor, BlackBerry, we have two 16 GB PlayBooks up for grabs.
About the BlackBerry PlayBook
The PlayBook is BlackBerry’s new tablet, released just a few 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….
