Nokia to give away 105 C7's and throw a party!

Published by at

Nokia is running a competition to promote its new C7 and C6-01 handsets. (See our in-progress C7 review here and here). The object of the competition is to win as many votes as possible via the "Nokia C7 social challenge" Facebook application, by giving a special hyperlink. The five most popular contestants will not only win a C7 for themselves and twenty of their friends, but Nokia says it will throw them a big party as well! To enter, head over to Nokia's Facebook page and click on the "C7 Contest" tab. Read on for comment and the promotional video.

This is a great opportunity for people to get creative, as it is totally open ended how contestants can go about winning votes. Of course, there is the practical limitation of needing to use the desktop version of the Facebook site to access the voting form, and voters need to access the voting form via a special link. For example, here's mine ;-) Voting closes on January 3rd 2011.

The Nokia C7 social contest

To enter the competition, entrants need to click on the "Find out more" link under the C7 Contest tab, then accept the terms and conditions and click the "Participate" link. Once entered, the application allows contestants to send a message to their Facebook friends (spam alert!), as well as copying the the special URL to the clipboard for pasting into other social networks, etc.
