Bitmob Giveaway: HP Netbook

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

Just a friendly bump/reminder! Less than two weeks to go…

This is not your average t-shirt giveaway, not that there’s anything wrong with t-shirts.

In association with Google Apps and Virgin America, we’re giving away a new HP Mini netbook to help celebrate the launch of Virgin’s in-flight WiFi service, which will allow you to use Google applications such as Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Search from all your favorite altitudes of and around 36,000 feet. Conveniently, it also works for the rest of the Internet, too.

This item is known more exactly as the HP Mini 1110NR and contains an Intel Atom N270 processor (1.60 GHz), 8GB solid-state drive, 1024MB of DDR2 SDRAM, and an 8.9″ screen ideal for Peggle. But wait! You also get a handsome teal (or is it seafoam?) laptop sleeve emblazoned with clouds. This laptop sleeve technically fits 13-15″ laptops, so inserting the HP Mini in there will be akin to throwing a silicon hotdog down a neoprene hallway, but whatever.

So what do you have to do to win? Read on.

OK. This is not one of those comment-below-to-win operations. We will choose a winner at random from among users who make one or more blog entries on Bitmob between the contest start date, August 10, 2009, and the contest end date, September 10, 2009, with the following caveats:

•  Multiple posts will count as multiple entries
•  We will not count any posts we consider, at our sole discretion, to be spam or spam-like — only substantial (doesn’t mean “long”) posts only
•  Posts that appear in a Bitmob Spotlight or Bitmob Reviews Spotlight article will count as three entries
•  Posts promoted to the front page of Bitmob will count as five entries

The HP Mini box again, because I got a new camera.

We will announce the winner on September 14, 2009. You must be registered on Bitmob with your full name and a valid email address to be eligible. Bitmob staffers and their families are not eligible. Void where prohibited, free shipping to continental U.S. residents only, sorry! Non-U.S. residents will need to cover shipping/handling/insurance via paypal.
