Reminder: Win a Tablet and Kindle at Nothing But Tablets

contest 520x115 Reminder: Win a Tablet and Kindle at Nothing But Tablets

It’s been a month since we officially launched our tablet website, Nothing But Tablets. To celebrate the launch we’re giving away both a Kindle and a tablet to a lucky winner (one per prize); one for commenting in the forums, one for commenting on articles on the front page. So far we’ve gotten more than 1500 comments, but there’s still 10 days left until the contest is over, and plenty of time to get in on the contest. More comments = more chances to win, so there’s no reason to sit idly by. Remember, comments have to add something to the conversation, which means the easiest articles to comment on are the day to day articles and not the contest article itself. So head on over to the contest post to read the rules if you haven’t already, and go nuts reading up on our 83 (and counting) posts!
