    Default CrackBerry's "Switch to BB10 in a 140 Characters" Contest!

    Hey All,

    OK, want to have a little community fun here. Had this idea the other day, as we often get questions on our twitter account to the tune of why should I switch to BB10 from my iPhone/Android/older BB/etc.?

    Of course, there are LOTS of reasons to switch to BlackBerry 10. The trick here is to whittle down the brilliance to 140 Characters or less.

    So that's the challenge.... I want to see your best 140 characters on Why you think Android/Apple/Windows Phone users should Switch to BlackBerry 10. You could also make the replies specific to the Z10 / Q10 / Q5. Put your answers as replies on this thread. We're going to pick our favorites out as they come in... and give those members some fun prizes!

    Enter as many times as you want on this one. Do one idea per reply on this thread.

    Good luck. Have fun!

    Here's a warm up...

    I receive and send a ton of emails everyday. The message hub and touchscreen keyboard on the Z10 are way better for this than my iPhone.

    Got it. Here I go.

    Z10 - cause no other onscreen keyboard has a mind of its own.

    140 characters aren't enough to tell you how many advantages my Z10 has over other platforms.

    @yelmonster - Exactly. You can't cover it all in one message. So you can do several entries... but each one has to be 140 characters or less. And think about what you'd say different to your iPhone using mom, friend who uses a Galaxy S3, etc. etc. Highlight different features for different comparisons.

    Good start. Keep it going!

    Lemme try again.

    Kevin, shouldn't we just make this a twitter contest? I bet if CB members really get down with it, we could make it trend.

    #ChooseBlackberry10 or something like that.

    "Open app, close app, open new app. Seems pointless when multitasking is an option on BlackBerry 10..."
    I think I'm getting the hang of this, is there any limit on the amount of entries you can submit?

    I'm assuming that Twitpics are allowed?

    My uncle used to hate his S3. I showed him the Q10 and now he loves it. The hub and keyboard help him send out his bussiness emails faster!

    If you can easily describe your love for BlackBerry 10 in 140 characters only, then you my friend, are not doing it right!

    Feeling like a voyeur? Why don't you try the Z10 and take a PEEK at your messages...without leaving your current app!!

    I could just go on and on.


    Because on the Z10's next OS update, I'm getting a ton more features...not just an extra row of apps.
