A few days ago we told you about the BBM Generations Contest from Rim. Today RIM added some videos from the influencers to their Youtube channel.
In addition to all of the videos that RIM posted there were also some rumors of a free phone given to the winners of the contest. Kris from BlackBerry Empire noticed in the fine print that the winners will be rewarded either a Bold 9930 or a Bold 9830. I know most of you are familiar with the 9930 but the 9830 is a new handset that has not been mentioned much. Here is the verbage from the contest rules:
Finalist Prizes: Each Finalist and his or her Team members (if applicable) will receive a BlackBerry® Bold™ 9830 smartphone or BlackBerry® Bold™ 9930 smartphone for their participation in The BBM Challenge Council program. Each Finalist and his or her Team Members will be able to keep the smartphone after the duration of the Contest. Service plans for the duration of The BBM Challenge Council program will be provided to Finalists and Team members at the discretion of Sponsor. Not all Finalists or Team members will receive service plans. ARV of each Finalist Prize: $300 USD.
The funny thing about this is that RIM has not formally announced this phone in any of the materials that have been officially released. Did they goof when they put this together or did they intentionally leak the information assuming that only a select few individuals would read the contest rules???
Thanks to Kris for pointing this out. As always, only time will tell.
