Weekly Contest: Winter Wonderland

Now that the BlackBerry 8130 is out across Verizon, Telus and Bell, it looks like we’re all set for Christmas (unless RIM is feeling extra-cheeky, and sneaks out one more release before the snowflakes start falling). The earlier release should give carriers enough time to pimp out the new wares, but as ever at this time of year RIM is going to be seeing some competition. For this Weekly Contest we ask you fine readers: based on the toys that are out or on the way, what is RIM’s big competition going to be this holiday season? Is the iPhone going to pick up steam, or is the 8130 still slick enough to be a cool present? Are there any other gadgets you’re eying that you’d rather get than a new BlackBerry? Yeah, it might be a little early to be talking about presents and trees, but the one to comment with the best wish list will walk away with the Seasonal theme and two others from bPlay.

Only two entries for last week’s contest, The Big G, which asked what impact Android and the Open Handset Alliance on RIM’s game. Tim gave us a pretty solid run-down on what Android would facilitate, but John took the opportunity to bash Google’s gang. We’re not sure if HTC and Motorola are doing quite as bad as he says, but we admire the panache, and that’s enough to win him 3 themes from bPlay. Congrats John!

Dear Santa:

I would like a Blackberry Pearl 8130 to replace my three year old dying Samsung I have from Sprint.
Please also make Sprint have good customer service. It is VERY bad right now. Also please make my Sprint reception improve. I really don’t like being on the train talking to a friend and then I lose the call while everyone else who has different cell phone carriers keeps on talking. I’ve been very good this year. Please Santa?
