Windows Phone Mother's Day Giveaway
In honor of Mother's Day, Popgadget is giving away a swanky new flagship Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone - all courtesy of the folks at Microsoft.
Whether she's in the 'family room' or the 'boardroom,' Mom is the ultimate CEO and deserves some appreciation... and simplification. Windows Phone is the perfect time-saving tool to help do-it-all moms complete life's little (or even not so little) tasks in a way that's simply faster and easier. There is a WP phone perfectly tailored for every mom - whether she's budget conscious or camera happy. Mom can even choose the color that best fits her personality, like the stand-out cyan blue that our Nokia giveaway phone comes in.
Read more after the break about what WP can do for Mom and for contest details.
Some of WP's Mom-perfect features include a built-in camera with social sharing that includes a dedicated camera button which bypasses the lock screen for super-fast photography and automatic photo upload to SkyDrive to keep all those photos permanent; the Me Tile on Windows Phone makes it easier and faster to send Facebook and Twitter updates all from one spot - no apps required; the People Hub features at-a-glance updates from family and friends so Mom is never out of touch; and the Live Tiles let Mom personalize her phone to feature the people and information that mean most to her on her start screen.
WP also helps the 'boardroom' Mom stay in touch and stay organized with Linked Inboxes and Groups. Linked Inboxes allows Mom to quickly and efficiently access all of her e-mail accounts in one place. Groups lets her easily group specific contacts together in one place, pin to her start screen and communicate with everyone at once. She won't have to call and update each person at the office when she can send them all the same text message with one touch.
With a Windows Phone, Mom can also download the latest apps, like Hand Crafted, where she can browse millions of made-by-hand items from Etsy, or Skype, so she can stay in touch with the kids easily and virtually - no matter where they are.
To enter, all you have to do is like us on Facebook. Winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, May 6 to allow plenty of time for Mom's gift to show up in the mail. And, yes, it's for Mom and not for you!! Winner will be announced on Facebook and here on Popgadget.
