Woot! It's contest time! The good folks at Bracketron, makers of all manner of slick mobile accessories, just ponied up an iPad Mini and a bunch of goodies to go with it. And to enter the drawing, all you have to do is answer a simple question.
Dear Canada, Mexico, and rest of the world,
I love you guys. A ton. If I had it in my power, it would be iPad Minis for everyone. Alas, the lawyers tell me only legal residents of the United States can enter this contest because shipping to other countries is really expensive. Or national security. One of those two. Anyway, I apologize and ask you not to take it personally. Hopefully the US can make it up to you in other ways. As I understand it, we've got a new coming.
So, let's talk about the prizes, which have a combined value of over $475. Here's what's awaiting one lucky winner:
- An iPad Mini (16GB) in space gray
- A Bracketron 3-in-1 Stylus
- A Bracketron SmartLantern
- A Bracketron Twist360 II
- A Bracketron Universal Headrest Mount
Pretty sweet bundle, no? I especially dig the Twist360 II, a clip-on kickstand that allows for all manner of portrait and landscape viewing angles, while also giving you a really nice handheld grip.
Ready to enter? Start by voting in our poll, then hit the comments to answer this simple question:
What tablet accessories do you consider must-haves?
I'll tell you what my entry would be: a kickstand. I love Amazon's Origami Kindle case for its ability to pull kickstand duty, and my current iPad has an awesome ZeroChroma flip-stand adhered to the back.
Good luck! Oh, and here's a quick bonus deal before I leave you with the fine print...
