You ready, Wazers? Today at 9am EST, we’re kicking off the US Smartphone Face-off, where each of the 3 top operating systems in America will go head-to-head in an effort to show the others who’s boss! We’ve partnered with blogs representing each top smartphone platform – Tibp (iPhone), Android Central (Android) and Crackberry (Blackberry) – and starting this morning, you’ll notice little road goodies all over the US map representing each one for you to get out there and eat. Munch the goodies related to the type of phone that you’re using and you’ll help bring your platform to victory, plus you’ll enter yourself into the drawing to win a brand new iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab, should you operating system win the overall competition. Pretty cool, eh?
Here’s how it works:
· Each road goodie is worth 2 points and the blog that gains the most points, wins.
· Only road goodies eaten by a phone corresponding to the type of road goodie will count – ie: if an iPhone user eats an Android road goodie, the points will not count for either blog. If a Blackberry user eats a Blackberry road goodie, the Blackberry blog will get a credit of two points.
· Once one of the three blogs is determined to have won, we’ll take the top 25 road munchers from that blog and randomly select one of these top 25 to win a brand new iPad *or* Samsung Galaxy tab of their very own!
· Every few days your blog will post an update so you can see where it stands among the competition.
The competition starts today and will go until 11:59pm PST on November 10 – we’ll announce the winners on the 11th. Make sure to tell your friends on the same platform to get involved, too, to make sure that your blog wins. Wishing you lots of luck and may the best operating system win!
