Holiday Phone Giveaway!

Update on 12/15: The winner has been contacted.  As soon as they reply that they received notification, I’ll announce officially who it is!  If you entered below, check your email!


I’m going to be quick and sweet here… well, quick at least.  I was hacked!!!  Fortunately, I was able to restore most of everything, but I’ve lost several recent posts that I’m going to be recreating.

However, in the meantime, my friends at Verizon Wireless are letting me do another giveaway!  This one will end at midnight on December 14, just in time for Christmas!  And the item is… drumroll please…


A DROID RAZR HD!!!!!!!!!!  And, yes there’s an ‘and’, a $50 Verizon Wireless gift card!

Some features of the phone are:

  • An 8-megapixel camera and HD display that makes movies, photos, magazines and websites appear with vibrant clarity.Circles Widget makes it easy to view battery life, text notifications, missed calls or weather updates, right on the home screen.
  • Near-field communications-enabled, so customers can use Android Beam to share contacts, documents and maps directly to compatible phones.
  • A battery that allows for up to 32 hours of normal use and double the internal storage (of older RAZR phones) to 32 GB.
  • Runs over 4G LTE, combined with Chrome for Android, meaning customers can enjoy blazing fast speeds that make downloading documents or surfing the Web a breeze.
  • Device is Global Ready, so calling home or sending emails is possible from more than 205 countries around the world.

And the details of the giveaway:

  • This is open only to persons 18 or older and in the US.
  • The giveaway runs from now until midnight December 14, 2012.
  • To win, you MUST leave a comment answering the question: What DROID RAZR feature are you most excited about?
  • All entries are subject to my approval based on appropriateness of the comment.  This just means “keep it clean.”  And the comments must be left on this entry on Livefire.
I’m also asking that you only enter once for any of the current Verizon Wireless DROID RAZR HD posts.  The winner will be chosen randomly from all the comments.
I’m an iPhone fan, but I’ve learned lately to really like these DROID phones.  My LG Intuition is pretty cool, and this looks to be a VERY cool DROID phone.  DROID is especially good if you’re into all the free Google services (even though it may end up a tie between Google and Apple as to which tries to control the interwebz first!).

Good luck!
