GottaBeMobile BIGGIE Contest – “Make me Mobile with Motion”!!!! is putting someone in serious “Motion”!
Well, we mentioned a BIGGIE contest, and trust me, this one IS big!!!  But it is also small —  but wait, don’t get confused quite yet.

How about getting in “Motion” with a Motion Computing LS800 Ultra Mobile Tablet PC?  In a partnership to help us launch the new discussion forums, Motion Computing has stepped up to the plate big time and is sponsoring a contest and putting up a brand new LS800 Ultra Mobile Tablet PC as a prize in our “Make Me Mobile with Motion” contest!  Do I hear wild screams of delight out there?  Yes, I think I do!


Here’s how to win.  Put together a creative 800-1000 word essay for us on how adding a Motion LS800 to your life will make you more mobile and enhance your personal and/or professional life.  Better yet, you ought to include BOTH aspects of life.  When we say be creative, we mean VERY creative.  For an LS800 prize valued at almost $2,200, you should be willing to work for it!  Besides the essay, the use of creative art, video, pictures, whatever you can come up with will be considered within reason, but remember the main concern will be on how this device would influence your life in a positive way.  We reserve the right to refuse anything too big or wild.  Just remember that the emphasis will be on the essay.
