Competition: Win a Sony Xperia U

by XB on 25th July 2012

in Xperia U

We’ve teamed up with Sony to give Xperia fans the exclusive chance to win an Xperia U to celebrate Xperia Unleashed and help the Leaderbot catch the pesky Xperiabots! The Xperia Unleashed campaign has been running since earlier this month, giving UK fans the chance to win some great prizes by spotting Xperiabots in various cities around the UK and online too.

The Sony Xperia U is the smallest member of the Xperia NXT family of smartphones and offers the same distinctive design as the Xperia S and Xperia P. It has a 3.5-inch (480 x 854) display, 1GHz dual-core NovaThor U8500 chipset, 8GB of internal storage, 5MP camera and a 1320mAh battery. The transparent strip also lights up with different colours depending on what you are viewing on the screen.

To enter the competition all you have to do is:
– Leave a comment in this forum thread
– Follow Xperia Blog on Twitter

That’s it! We will pick a winner randomly when the competition closes at 12pm (GMT) on Tuesday 31st July 2012. Good luck! For those who don’t get lucky, not to worry, just visit the Sony Mobile UK Facebook page and follow the Leaderbot @xperiaunleashed for hints on where the pesky critters are!

Rules: 1) Please register on the forum with a valid email address as we will be using this to contact you. 2) Once contacted, if we do not hear from you within 48 hours we will draw another winner. 3) Only one entry per household (remember we can see your IP address). 4) This competition is open to our readers in the United Kingdom only.

    Yep, sorry about this. When we run the competitions we normally make them available worldwide, but as this is part of the Xperia Unleashed campaign, which is UK only, we also had to restrict it to UK readers only.
