Droid Bionic Giveaway

Win a motorola droid bionic smart phone

See, I even saved the packaging for you!

I’m finishing up my time with the Verizon Wireless Midwest Moms Program with a flourish- a big giveaway with one of the devices I tested. I knew from the beginning that I’d be keeping one device and passing along the other and early on it was clear to me that the Motorola Xoom tablet was my top pick. Therefore, one of YOU gets to keep my Motorola Droid Bionic smart phone.

Not that I’m passing along sloppy seconds. Indeed, because I was worried about damaging, misplacing or outright losing the Bionic and its associated cables and charges, I didn’t actually use it that often. As noted in this post by Amy Oztan, knowing an item isn’t mine to keep affects how I use it. In the end, I don’t think think that served me or the brand well, but it’s a bonus for the person who wins it!

In addition to learning a valuable blogging lesson, I can tell you that the Bionic’s photo quality is good on still shots.

You can capture some pretty sweet video with the Bionic.

And the Verizon data service worked well.

It didn’t play so nice with Hootsuite, though. Especially when I tried to post pictures.

But it’s still a pretty nice phone. The key features of the Bionic, as told by Motorola, include:

And did I mention it is so very gently used?

Not only that, the winner will also receive a sleek silicone phone cover.

Win it!

You want this phone, eh? Ideally, you have( or plan to have) Verizon data service so you can take full advantage of theBionic. πŸ™‚

1. (Required) Comment once on this blog by 11:50 PM CST on December 28, 2011 for a basic entry. US addresses only. No purchase necessary to win, but the winner must be 18 years of age. The prize has a retail value of approximately $580. Winner will be randomly chosen by the WordPress plug-in, β€œAnd the Winner is.”

Winner will be chosen and notified by December 30, 2011 and will have two days to respond to me. If no response is received, a new winner will be chosen.

Β Disclaimer: I was not paid for my involvement in the Midwest Moms program, but I did receive the two mobile devices mentioned above as well as a Verizon data plan.Β  All opinions are my own. I will be shipping the phone to the winner in early 2012.

    Oh I could so use this. My current Droid’s power button doesn’t work (don’t laugh). And the battery drains like you wouldn’t believe. Oh, and it goes wonky and presses buttons/calls people/tries to add gmail accounts by itself where I can’t stop it and have to just take out the battery. Yeah, pathetic, I know.
