Contest: CLIQ gets Android 2.1; We give it away to a lucky reader

Motorola announced they would upgrade the T-Mobile CLIQ to Android 2.1 and we decided it is finally time to give the phone some love. I’m going to give away my Motorola CLIQ (new in box) in order to celebrate the news that it will receive the update everyone was wanting.

If you have any friends on T-Mobile who need a new smartphone, please share this contest with them.

Rules

Upload a video to YouTube (or Vimeo or whatever you use) and convince us why you need this phone. An ideal candidate would be a current T-Mobile customer who has never owned an Android phone. We like humor so try to make us laugh (see our last video contest winner).

Please post your video entry as a response to our YouTube video or leave a comment below that links to your upload.

Eligibility: Since this phone was designed for T-Mobile USA, we would prefer to give it to a T-Mobile customer or someone who is interested in trying out their service. T-Mobile now offers their Even More Plus plans which require no contract, so this would be a good opportunity for someone to test out Android without having to sign a 2 year contract.

Prize

The winner will receive a new T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ. I won the phone at last year’s Motodev Summit and it is mostly unused (just opened it to play with it). I will ship the device with its original packaging and all accessories included in the box.

Winner

We will announce a winner on Friday, January 22, 2010 so please have your video in before Thursday if you would like to enter the contest. If we are unable to find a clear winner, we might resort to a 24hr vote and let our readers decide who gets the phone.
