This was one of our heaviest weekend contests yet. Last week, we asked you to glance over our “This Year In BlackBerry News”-type post and reply with what you thought was most important – the winner to walk away with a BT-359 Bluetooth GPS puck from USGlobalSat.
John C. made some really great points regarding the BlackBerry world takeover, Scott weighed in well with his opinions on the Pearl, and Krad’s ass-kissing didn’t go unnoticed. If we could give a puck to everyone, we would, but instead we’ll play this nasty little trick by posting the winner after the jump (our version of a commercial break).
The winner of the GPS puck is (tap your desks for a drumroll if that’s your thing): Alex D.!
“I am thinking that the biggest Blackberry related story of the year was the settlement of the lawsuit from NTP. That was a huge dark cloud hanging over RIMâ€™s head for a REALLY LONG time. It seemed to impact their production and release of newer products. Once that was cleared up the flood gates opened and they were able to release new server software, some new handhelds, and purchase some other companies and finish with a very good year. The Pearl was a huge step but I think they had to get the nasty legal stuff out of the way to be able to move on with the more innovative and ground breaking products.”
Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter. If you didn’t win, don’t worry and wipe those tears away. This was just the first step in making our contests bigger and better – who knows what’ll turn up week to week.
