Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 competition

sony-ericsson-xperia-x2 I’ve been hinting that we’d have a new competition for a few weeks and I am pleased to say that the time has come!

Thanks to our friends at Sony Ericsson we have an Xperia X2 to give away. James picked up the X2 at MWC last month and Sony Ericsson are letting us use it as a competition prize.

If you’ve been following the progress of the X2 you’ll no doubt be aware that SE have decided not to make the Xperia X2 available in the UK, indeed it’s only going to be available to buy in a limited number of countries so entering this competition may in fact be one of the only ways of having a chance of getting your hands on the X2!

So have a look at the details on how to enter after the jump…

Motorola Milestone Competition Winner

The competition has been running since the 26th of December and has seen literally thousands of entries. It has taken me the some time to get all of the entries in to one list in Excel and as with other competitions we simply use a random number generator from the internet to randomly select the winner.

So it’s time to announce our winner. Our random number has selected forum member ‘Justin’ who entered via the forum. I’ve already sent you an email Justin but please do get in touch with me to arrange delivery of your Motorola Milestone.

Please join me in congratulating our winner. I’m sorry that not everyone can be a winner but if any of the handset manufacturers wants to give me several thousand handsets to give away I’d be happy to do that! 🙂

 

As the last few competitions have been so very successful there will definitely be more soon, just keep an eye on the site or Twitter for announcements.
