OK, so here’s the deal. It’s been far too long since we had a prize giveaway at Marketing Pilgrim AND I just happen to have a brand new Nokia Internet Tablet sitting under my desk–never opened!

It seems like the perfect opportunity to combine the two and have some fun. I thought long and hard about the format of the new contest, then I had a vision. Actually, it was more like a browser window. You see, just the other day, I reached 1000 posted tweets on Twitter at the exact same time that the 500th person signed-up to follow my Twitter account.

OK, where’s all this going? Bear with me.

If you’re not already following me on Twitter, you’re potentially missing out on news, thoughts and opinions that never make it on to Marketing Pilgrim. I share a lot of stuff that wouldn’t be substantial enough for a Pilgrim’s Picks, let alone a standalone post. In addition, I chat to some pretty cool people on Twitter–so by following me, I can introduce you to them.

Starting to make sense?

Of course, if I just asked you to follow me on Twitter–and ask that you trust I’ll have something interesting to say–you’d probably be skeptical. So, I’m offering a bribe too!

Sometime between now and Jan 31st, I’ll post instructions on Twitter for how you can enter to win the uber-cool (did I just use “uber?”) Nokia N770 Internet Tablet. Is it worth winning? Well, here’s what it can do:

  • Check email
  • Check RSS feeds
  • Browse the web with a full browser
  • Send instant messages
  • Use the built in wi-fi
  • Stream audio/radio
  • Make VOIP telephone calls
  • Take notes using the touch screen
  • Use bluetooth
  • Just 5.5″ wide!
  • And keep up to date with!!!

So go ahead and join Twitter now. Even if you unsubscribe after my first “heading to dinner” tweet, you might still find someone else interesting enough to follow. πŸ˜‰
