Prize number 16 – we have a winner!

I’m pleased to announce the winner of the 16th prize in our ‘12 Days of Christmas‘ competition.

The winner of the iPod JAVOskin case from JAVOedge is Elizabeth Smith.

JAVOEdge

The answer to the question we posed was: EAD Stands for Enhanced Anti-Dust.

The EAD (Enhanced Anti Dust) Treatment makes JAVOSkin feel softer to the touch and reduces surface dust. JAVOSkin Case absorbs well with daily bumps, knocks and vibration via travelling. Cutouts for easy access to all function keys and headphone jack. Protects without compromising your device’s functions: allows you to protect, view and navigate without removing it from its case. Anti-slip material gives the device added traction and holding comfort, preventing the device from sliding off smooth surface (Great for placing on car dashboard). Lightweight, stretchable and extremely durable. JAVOSkin is washable (it may rinsed with tap water).

As our winner, Elizabeth can now choose any JAVOskin case for any model of iPod and can even pick the colour!

Thanks to all who entered. There will be another prize from JAVOedge soon!
