OK, this is a really exciting giveaway! I went to a Microsoft event last week and left with a lot of great stuff, and I’m giving most of it to you guys (not all of it; look at the title of my blog). The phone is white on the front and blue on the sides and back, and runs on the AT&T network. This looks like a fantastic phone:
- Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 (you can view and edit Microsoft Office files and view PowerPoint files)
- 3G UMTS/HSDPA, GPRS/EDGE (which I think means it can connect to the ‘net really fast)
- Video Share capable (which means that this phone supports video calls, for an extra fee – how cool is that?)
- AT&T Mobile Music and Video
- Email and instant messaging
- Bluetooth Wireless connectivity
- 2.0 Megapixel integrated camera
- Integrated GPS
It has an external microSD memory card slot, a full QWERTY keyboard, supports multiple email programs, and has all of the usual calendar and alarm functions and games. It even has world-wide roaming capabilities for those of you with exciting lives.
Please note: it is up to you to figure out if this phone will work where you live, on your network, on your wireless plan, etc. I take no responsibility! I have enough trouble keeping all of my own gadgets in line. To further protect my ass, I am not responsible for anything that happens to you while you’re using the phone, looking at the phone, or even in the same room as the phone. Once the phone leaves my hands my responsibility is over.
I myself have a non-smart non-Windows phone, and I regret it. I mean, I love my phone for the things it does do, but if I had to do it all over again I would only choose from phones that run Windows and that I can work on Microsoft Office files on. My computer runs Windows Vista, I work on a lot of documents, and I realize now that I really need a phone that can work better with my other electronics.
This phone retails for anywhere from $330 with no contract commitment (how you’re getting it) to $80 with a two-year plan and the rebate that’s currently being offered by AT&T. But one of you will win one for free! To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post between now and noon eastern on Tuesday, October 28th. Any comments received after noon eastern on October 28th will not count! In your comment, tell me what your favorite feature is on this phone (you can see more features here).
The winner will be chosen at random by random.org. Only U.S. mailing addresses are eligible. Only one entry per person per day please. I’ll say that again: you can answer once per day!
Good luck, and thanks to the nice people at Microsoft!
