Win a BlackBerry from WHERE and BlackBerry Cool

In honor of the WHERE mobile application launching for the BlackBerry Storm, WHERE has partnered with BlackBerry Cool to give away a free BlackBerry to one of its readers.

I know what you are thinking: free BlackBerry?! Where do I sign up? The contest rules are easy. In haiku form, answer the question: WHERE is your BlackBerry right now? Leave it in the comments section of this post either in text or link to a YouTube video.

Top 10 haikus will be chosen by the WHERE team on March 10th. Then it’s up to you, BlackBerry Cool community, to vote for the winner. The winner will be notified via email on March 16th and will have a choice of a BlackBerry or Gift Card towards the BlackBerry store, value up to $400.

WHERE is your BlackBerry smartphone Right Now? Some Example Haikus to get you started:

Nestled in a warm
Place, my BlackBerry smartphone
Waits for a loud ring

In my pocketbook
Probably at the bottom
Under my lipstick

How to Score Additional Points:
• Standard Haiku format is 3 lines of 5,7,5 syllables. Please adhere to this format, or your entry may be disqualified. Prime Numbers Rule!
• Get an A or B list celebrity to read your Haiku on video and automatically Win! Note, Gary Coleman does not count as an A or B list celebrity but will be admitted under the condition that he reads your haiku AND says, “Whatcha talking about Willis”
• Mention WHERE in your Haiku and automatically get a brownie point
• How are we determining the top 10? The ones that make us laugh the hardest. Simple enough, right?

A little more about the WHERE mobile application. WHERE is a location-based application that uses GPS to help you find people, places and things. Whether it’s tracking down the cheapest gas, getting reviews to a new restaurant, satisfying your craving for a latte, or helping you find your friends in a crowded city, WHERE delivers the best in local information from Eventful, Yelp, GasBuddy, Zipcar, Starbucks, Buddy Beacon and more. WHERE also lets you see your places on a map, get directions and share locations with friends. WHERE can be downloaded from Built for BlackBerry.com and Where.com.

Thanks for reading and I’m looking forward to your Haikus!
