nokia contest

Nokia UK gets metro, entices you with the Lumia for liking!

Honestly, I love contests don’t you? Especially when the prize attached is the Nokia Lumia before it launches in UK?

Nokia UK has officially redesigned their Facebook UK page to show its love of the Windows Phone start menu. The information shown are links to preorder the Nokia Lumia, view a demo of the Lumia in action and a chance to win the Nokia Lumia. How do you enter? Like the page and you are entered to win the Nokia Lumia. While it is not open to anyone outside of the UK, it is still a nice incentive. You may want to wear a lucky charm of some sort to increase your chances of winning. Contest ends November 9, 2011 with results posted November 11, 2011.
