Competition Closed: Purple is the new…

*** Competition Closed ***

*** The Winner is announced ***

Hey Culchies,

We have a nice little treat for you over the weekend. Nokia has sent me a purple box!!!

Purple Box

Nokia 6700 PurpleWhy have they done this? Well, partly because they’re an odd bunch, but mostly because they’re launching the new Nokia 6700 Slide. The new Nokia 6700 comes in pink, purple, red and silver and has a great 5MP camera and superb battery life. AND…we have a pretty snazzy purple one to give away to one lucky Culch.ie reader.

So, what do you have to do to win this Nokia 6700? Well, I peeked inside the box and there’s no phone inside. πŸ™

They sent me something else instead!!! πŸ™‚ It’s soft and smiley and whoever guesses it correctly will win the new phone. Leave your guesses in the comments below and the winner will be announced on Monday 24th May. If more than one person gets it right, there will be a draw and if no one guesses right, whoever gets closest to it wins.

So, come on, use your imagination.
