I’m getting ready to attend my third BlogHer and feel like it wasn’t that long ago that I attended my very first conference in San Francisco in 2008. At the time I registered, I had only been blogging for a month and was still a newbie 6 months later. Needless to say I was nervous and overwhelmed.
I remember going to the first party of the on one of the top floors of the St. Francis Hotel. It was crowded and in an attempt to find food and drink, I happened upon a T-Mobile table. And that was the beginning.
Now three years later, I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing countless T-Mobile phones, freelancing for their 100% You Magazine which is sent to all T-Mobile customers, and hosting a lot of giveaways.
This year I am featured on T-Mobile’s BlogHer ’10 page, the BlogHer ’10 Facebook page, and am offering my readers the chance to win a brand new Garminfone!
Garminfone? As in the Garmin the GPS company?
Garminfone is the first Android smartphone that features Garmin GPS navigation in one device. According to the T-Mobile site, Garminfone will help you navigate either by car or foot by simply entering an address or cross streets and using voice-guided and on-screen turn-by-turn directions to guide you to your destination. You can even record your own custom voices as navigation prompts with Garmin Voice Studio!
Garminfone also features location-based services so you can access real-time traffic, weather, and ETA…even gas prices to refuel during your journey! It includes a charging mount and car charger so you can get going as soon as you take it out of the box whether your travels take you indoors or out.
Like all T-Mobile phones, the Garminfone provides direct access to the Android Market to add apps for productivity, social networking, and entertaining the kids. It also comes loaded with Google Mobile Services to instantly access Google Calendar™, Gmail™, YouTube™, and GoogleTalk®.
While I haven’t gotten my hands on the new Garminfone for a full review, everything that I have read and heard has been incredibly positive and think this could be my new favorite T-Mobile device! I’m looking forward to experiencing the Garminfone this week at T-Mobile’s booth at BlogHer but want to offer all of my readers the opportunity to win one.
Just tell me what mobile application you can’t live without on the T-Mobile BlogHer’10 tab on your Facebook account and respond in the Discussions section. Make your answer good because I get to choose the best response as my winner!
Good luck and maybe I’ll run into you at the T-Mobile booth in the exhibit all at BlogHer later this week!
No compensation was received for being profiled on BlogHer, this post, or to select the winner of the Garminfone however, T-Mobile has also provided me with a Dell Mini with WebConnect to use while at BlogHer.
