what is the crystal BalckBerry

I received a mail today that tell me I will received a crystal BlackBerry:

 

Many thanks to you for making the launch of BlackBerry 10 such a success.   In appreciation for all your dedication and hard work we are pleased to send you a Crystal BlackBerry®.

 

And a link to enter my shipping informations.

 

The mail is from tmgideas.com  -> I think it is a spam. Rigth?

Re: what is the crystal BalckBerry

It's not a spam. And the Crystal Dev Alpha does exist. I believe some people won them during the portathon?

Anyway, tmgideas.com is the company BB subcontracts "fulfillment" stuff to for these programs, so as long as your reply goes to them it should be safe to reply. As usual check for obvious phishing attempts by verifying that the reply address or web site is what it appeared to be when you clicked on it, etc.

Re: what is the crystal BalckBerry

I don't know what a Crystal BlackBerry might be, but tmgideas.com is a legit company, with BlackBerry listed as a client.

They are a brand engagement/promotion company... so, could be legit.

Re: what is the crystal BalckBerry

Oh, and I just got one this very moment too. I recognize the web site it takes us to (www.officiallogoshop.com) as well, so it's all good.

Re: what is the crystal BalckBerry

Its basically like an award. It has a dev alpha in glass and it says thanks for you bb10 app. Some people got it through portathons and some got it through developer events, which is where I got mine from.

Re: what is the crystal BalckBerry

If somebody would find better information on what it is and how it looks like, please share. The images on http://n4bb.com/crystal-blackberry-10-dev-alpha-award-given-developer/ do not say a lot.
