Giveaway: Win a Windows Phone Messenger Bag

Since I am new around here the guys said I had to pass some right of passage. Just kidding, but I do want to do something nice for this the GBM readers. I got this really nice Windows Phone Ogio bag at a recent event I attended and if you knew how many bags I already had, you’d probably come confiscate more than this bag I am volunteering. This is the Ogio Jack Pack Fire bag with “Windows Phone” embroidered on it. Sweet huh?

To win, there are two easy steps:

1. The easiest step is to tell us in the comments what you are most excited about with Windows Phone 7. If you aren’t excited, no worries, just tell us what you don’t like about Windows Phone 7. I know it’s not out yet, but we’ve all seen the posts, the screenshots, and the videos right?


2. After leaving your comment, subscribe to GottaBeMobile on twitter and tweet the following. “I entered to win a Windows Phone Ogio Messenger bag from @Gottabemobile –”

Deadline to enter is October 11th, 2010. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents aged 18 or older where permitted by state and local regulations. We will notify the winner via email (left in the comments section) and/or via an @ reply on Twitter.

Good luck!


  1. I won’t be getting a Windows Phone 7, but I am overall leery about software availability for it. There is so much software available for the previous incarnations of Windows Mobile, it’s too bad those programs can’t be immediately ported over in some emulator/compatibility mode or something. A new platform structure seems risky for the type of user base that Windows Mobile has previously had though I can see Windows Phone 7 appealing to a wider market now.

  2. I am super excited about the Zune/Zune Pass integration. I have an 80Gb Zune but the interface on the ZuneHD/WP7 is so much nicer.

  3. I love the fact that Windows Phone 7 seamlessly and transparently integrates most (if not all) Windows Live Services. It will be the first OS to do so without any third party apps. Plus, Windows Phone 7’s People view makes me know what everyone in my social circle is up to without opening another separate app.

  4. I’m looking forward to consolidating my two devices (a Zune HD and a WinMo 6.5 phone) into one. And of course, the Zune-like interface!

  5. I’m not too thrilled about the fact that Windows Phone 7 can’t tether. I had no idea, but tethering is pretty important for me because my internet often goes out for no reason at all. I need to be able to connect to some form of internet, and if I can’t tether, that’s a bad thing.

  6. The best thing about winmo7 for me is that it looks easier to get into programming for it, since it uses c# and technologies similar to programming for desktop windows/silverlight. Android is a bit harder to get into since I’m less familiar with Java.

  7. I think I’ll be sticking to my HD2. I mean, no tethering, copy/paste, and removable memory cards? Come on.

  8. I’m excited about 25G of cloud storage, free phone location and remote wipe services, Zune integration, XBOX Live/XNA games, etc.

    That, and METRO is the most innovative UI we’ve seen in years.

  9. I don’t do twitter, so I guess I can’t win. Anyway I just think the variety of devices along with a consistant UI that can be arranged to my liking is wonderful. I am looking forward to what is to come. I hope they bring the HTC 7 Pro to AT&T. A perfect replacement for my Tilt2.
