Now that you know what you can win, here’s how you do it.

Recently we added the ability to “Rate Your PDA or SmartPhone” here on, as an example click here to see already submitted ratings and user opinions for the Dell Axim X50v.  You’re able to rank your handheld device in five different categories on a scale of 1 – 10, give a general thumbs-up or thumbs-down, and then add verbage into an area called “Pros” and “Cons”.  For the Pros you should talk about why you like your PDA and other generally good things.  For the Cons tell us anything bad about your PDA or things you wish that it had.  If you submit a rating for your PDA before December 10 at 11:59 p.m. then you’re entered into our competition.  We’ll select the top 22 submissions based on how thoughtful and thorough you are in your rating, and from those top 22 we’ll put your email address on a piece of paper into a tumbler and pull email addresses one-by-one, we’ll then contact the winners in the order your email is pulled from this tumbler and whoever is first gets to pick their prize first.  So remember, it’s important to include your email address in your rating submission, it’s not required to enter a product rating, but if you don’t we have no way of contacting you!

Here are some quick links to popular PDAs that you might want to rate:

If you don’t see your PDA in this list just follow this link, choose the manufacturer of your PDA and drill down to find the product.  After getting to the product page look for the “Rate Product” hyperlink displayed below the device specs that will allow you to submit your entry.  If your PDA or SmartPhone is missing from our database, then contact us and let us know so we can enter it in.
