Who Wants This Samsung Galaxy Note II? (Giveaway)

Samsung’s Galaxy Note II continues to redefine the smartphone space. The phone/tablet hybrid achieved a 9 out of 10 in our comprehensive review, demonstrated excellent staying power in its recent After The Buzz appearance, and continues to sell well as we head into the holiday season.

Now, thanks to the fine folks at Samsung, we have the opportunity to give one away. So that’s just what we’re going to do.

If you’ve been dreaming of sticking an S Pen-enabled phablet in a loved one’s stocking this holiday, but you’d like to avoid spending $600 in the process, this post contains everything you need to know to enter for your chance to win. It’s not just a simple matter of liking and following us on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Google Plus (but that is a component). This contest also calls for some trivia prowess.

If you’re video-minded, check out the brief rundown on YouTube, then examine the fine print below.


How To Enter

Entering is a simple process:

1. Like and follow Pocketnow on Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus. If you don’t have a Facebook account, that’s fine; following Pocketnow on Twitter or Google Plus will be sufficient to qualify. Vice-versa, if you don’t have a Twitter or Google Plus account, then Liking us on Facebook will work. If you have neither a Facebook nor a Twitter account, you’ll have to sit this one out.

The appropriate links are below.You must like/follow at least one of these to qualify. Maybe do this right now. Just a suggestion.

Pocketnow Facebook page

Pocketnow Twitter account

Pocketnow Google Plus page

2. Answer the five trivia questions. We’ll post one mobile-tech-related trivia question per day, at the bottom of a random post, above the source links. To help you out, the first trivia question of the contest is at the bottom of this post.

Wednesday’s trivia question will be contained within that day’s episode of the Pocketnow Weekly Podcast. In between all of our usual chatter about iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and the off-topic chuckles and off-color jokes, the question will be asked by a mysterious voice that may or may not resemble Michael Fisher’s.

3. Send your answers to us by noon on Monday, 12/17. Send your five answers in one email to CONTEST [AT] POCKETNOW [DOT] COM.

PROTIP: this means we shouldn’t be getting any emails until the last hint goes up on Friday.

One last time: you should only send one email, with all five answers contained within it, once Friday’s hint goes up. We do not want a separate email for each trivia question.

That’s that! On Monday, December 17, we’ll randomize all qualifying responses and post the winner here at Pocketnow.com, and one of you lucky folks will be taking home an (unlockable) AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note II!

Impress your friends. Frighten your enemies.
