Nokia 5230 Giveaway at TechHail – Winner Announcement

Written By Sam on 1 February 2010

Finally the long awaited 5230 giveaway contest has come to an end yesterday. I’m very much delighted to see a very good response from the huge crowd. The contest has went very well beyond my expectations. At one point of time I was unhappy as I had got only one prize. It would have been a good thing if there were couple of more prizes. But one good news is that I’m working with some sponsors to get some very good stuff like Nokia N97 Mini, Apple iPod Touch and some hard cash as prizes for the upcoming contest.

Coming to the stats. It took me more than 1 hour to sort out the valid comments and tweets. Though some of them were not accurate to the point, I considered them into the draw. There are a total of 48 valid comments, 58 tweets and couple of mentions on blogs. Every one who has tweeted got 1 tickets, comments were given 1 ticket and blog entries were given 10 entries. All the contest participants names or twitter handles were entered in List Randomizer at “” in alphabetical order and “Randomize” button was clicked once to choose the winner.

So here is the winner and his comment – “Venkat Krishna

Nice offer. Nokia 5230 is damn good mobile with excellent features. I don’t use twitter and no website for me. So im only commenting here. I want to win this mobile.


I have mailed the winner already and will parcel the Nokia 5230 as soon as I receive a response from him. If I do not receive a response from him with a week I would again run the List Randomizer to select a different winner.

Thanks one and all who have helped me directly or indirectly to make this giveaway a BIG success.

I’m already working with few sponsors to kick start a new contest very soon. This time I’ll arrange for atleast 3-4 prizes for the winner. If you have any other ways to organize a better contest then do share it with me through the comment section.
