Once per day for the duration of each contest, the official BlackBerry Twitter account (@BlackBerry) will tweet an invitation to enter. After this tweet, you may enter by answering the “fun BlackBerry related question”, making sure to direct your tweet to @BlackBerry and include the appropriate hashtag (#BerryHoliday in December and #JanuBerry in January). This contest is open to residents of both the US and Canada.
RIM will choose every 10th (correct) tweet as a winner, and award the prizes to the owner of the account.
