RIM is showing Canadians the love and opened up a Twitter contest that could win you a new BB10 device, case and a trip to the big BlackBerry fan party. Piggybacking on a recent NYC Twitter contest, RIM will start promoting the Toronto event and interested Canadians (excluding Quebec) who want to participate should tweet “what you are most excited about for BlackBerry 10, and include the hashtag #BlackBerry10TO.”
Pretty simple. RIM notes that the contest begins
today January 15th and ends at 11:59:59 pm ET on January 17th, 2013. According to the terms and conditions, there’s 30 prizes up for grabs:
“There are thirty (30) prizes available to be won (each a “Prize”). Each Prize consists of one (1) BlackBerry 10 smartphone, one (1) smartphone case and an invitation for the winner and one (1) guest to the #BlackBerry10TO Fan Event which will take place in Toronto, Ontario Canada on or around January 30, 2013 (“Event”). Actual date will be confirmed by Sponsor prior to the event. Approximate retail value of prize pack is up to $1000 USD.”
Update: RIM reached out to us and stated the contest will actually start on January 15th. “We actually updated the T&Cs this morn to launch the contest tomorrow.”
Update #2: I’ve updated the terms and conditions paragraph above to reflect the new changes.
