    Default The CrackBerry Celebration Event in New York City

    Blaze had lipstick on his cheek. Kevin was taking pictures with CrackBerry fans. Adam was drawing raffle tickets announcing winners while admitting he was bad at it and even Rene Ritchie was there supporting and dropping knowledge on the low with party attendees.
    The music was pumping, food and drinks were being served and the place was packed and alive.

    But wait.
    Let me Tarantino back in time before this.
    It's 7:30pm and I find myself standing in a long line outside of 1 Oak that stretched down the block. At first, I wasn't even sure I had the right place. Apparently there was a line an hour before the event even started! Here I am trying to show up fashionably late and the joke's on me. It took me over a half hour just to get in.
    A couple hours before all this, I'm contemplating if I should even go.
    But I wisely decided to head down to Chelsea with my camera on a whim to experience this once in a lifetime CrackBerry event.

    1 Oak is a great trendy space and the CrackBerry team are really a terrific bunch. Fun, knowledgeable and engaging. Having the Q10 available for everyone to play with throughout the night was an added bonus too. There was even a BlackBerry representative there to showcase all of it's glory. There were CB T-shirts, CB stickers and BlackBerry specialized drinks sported everywhere not to mention the free phone giveaways compliments of CB.
    A memorable night indeed. I was glad that I came and was able to capture it all.
    I didn't win anything unfortunately and although I was too caught up taking pictures to actually grab any swag or even eat, I did walk away with something...
    There was an undeniable sense that BlackBerry, despite all their troubles and challenges were going to be alright.
    The celebration tonight was that BlackBerry is finally back thanks to all you guys reading this.
    For so long we all hoped that it would be someday and I left knowing that it is.
    The CrackBerry team and it's members have always been the unfaltering light in the midst of it's darkness.
    Well done guys... and thank you.

    Definitely a blast! If the meetup was a sign of things to come, BlackBerry will be fine here in the U.S.

    just to throw that out there hahaha

    hilarious to see the apple trolls that were on line arguing with us be oooooing and awwwing at the Z10 & Q10

    it was such a fantastic night the venue was beautiful the staff was excellent the CrackBerry team were fantastic hosts

    Team BlackBerry all around

    Saw a lot of people with Z10s in their hands and it was really cool to get a solid feel of the Q. I got to play with it a bit and I feel like I'd have to get use to typing on buttons again. It felt a little off after having my Z since Jan hahaha I even tried swiping left on the physical keyboard to delete forgetting myself for a minute that I actually have to press a button hahaha

    Would have loved to have made the trek down from Toronto to attend this event but sadly could not get the time off of work

    From the pics, it looks like everyone had a blast. Maybe next time

    It was an awesome night! Got to play with the Q10, its really hot phone. CB team are all cool guys, and CrackBerry Kevin was super patient as he stood there and took a picture with every single CB member there lol. Got to meet the creator of Blaq for PlayBook, which is coming to the Z10 soon too. He was a pretty cool dude.

    Got a ton of stickers and other goodies too. Including that pen the OP posted a pic of. Its a pen on one side and a stylus on the other. Now I can use it as a pen for my notebooks, and a stylus for my PlayBook and Z10, Pretty cool. Wish I picked more of those up, lol.

    Overall is was a great night. Missed the first CrackBerry meetup in NYC waaay back in '08 (or was it '09?) but made sure I would def make this one. Hope the CB team throws a few more of these events while you're still here in NY.

    Yeah I really wanted those shirts, but the one guy refused to give them out! Said the were giving them out later, but then they were all gone

    Got one of those awesome pens though, and was messing around with the stylus on my Z10 all night. Comes in handy for DrawSomthing/Pictures with friends lol. Wish I got more of em.
