This spring, AT&T is challenging ten bloggers to lose their laptops in the Lose the Laptop Challenge 2.0. The stakes are higher than ever as these leading bloggers enter into a second round of mobile device challenges that’ll change the way they -and you- think about smartphones forever. AT&T asked a group of parent and small biz bloggers to put the HTC Tilt 2 device to the ultimate test with a series of challenges that not only require that they “lose the laptop,” but also push them to use the smartphones to their fullest potential by completing the tasks at hand.
VOTE for your favorite bloggers for YOUR chance to win big prizes! Each month AT&T will pick one registered reader to win the reader prize. In addition, one blogger will win the challenger prize based on number of votes they receive and the relevance and creativity of their post. Vote now for your chance to win!
In addition to the voting contest, join us for our #LosetheLaptop Twitter party for your chance to enter to win one of four HTC Tilt2 devices including an accessories gift pack or one of five $25 gift cards.
