L’antefatto via Techcrunch
We’ll keep this short and sweet. Google launched the Nexus One phone today. Here’s my review. We have one that we’re going to give away to a TechCrunch reader. You can buy one here for $529 (or $179 with a two year T-Mobile contract).
Or you can get this one from us for free. Here’s how you can get the device. Just do one of two things: either retweet this post, and make sure to include the #techcrunch hashtag, or leave a comment below telling us why this device must be yours. The contest ends at noon California time tomorrow (Wednesday). Please only tweet the message once, anyone tweeting repeatedly will be disqualified. We’ll randomly select a winner tomorrow afternoon and contact you for more details.
Il fatto via Techcrunch
Our Google Nexus One giveaway yesterday drew so much attention so quickly that our site actually went down hard for half an hour.
4,089 comments and 8,242 tweets later, we have a randomly selected winner. Who is from Romania (we said we’d ship it anywhere). Matilda Tanascov is the proud owner of a brand new Google Nexus One phone, if she ever returns our tweet.
