Massive $2400 phone giveaway!
Thanks to Telecom XT we’ve got 3 (three!) Motorola Defy android phones to give away, Dylan snarfed the first for getting the phones, Gary Henson won the second for coming up with the best competition, and if Aaron Gillon goes through with his promise of destroying a Samsung Galaxy S by slingshotting it into a wall, he gets the third one.
But all is not lost, if Aaron doesn’t destroy his Galaxy S (and frankly I think he’d be mad to, it’s a great phone) the last Motorola Defy goes back into the pool and we’ll choose another entrant. And even if he does, we’ve got even more great prizes in the goody bag, coming up in the next couple of episodes.
