The Nokia E7 smartphone winner is...Folarin Michael O

I promise you, there's absolutely no ojoro in this at all. I have absolutely no idea who this guy is, and nobody at the Nokia office (who picked the winner) know him. They picked him based on the answer he gave. They shortlisted down to three and felt his answer was the most creative. Below is what he wrote...

Folarin Michael O. said...
I'm an IT technician. One of the most creative things I did with my Nokia N97 mini was when I downloaded an antivirus update from avast! and transferred the file through b/tooth to an infected system at one of my client's offices at Ago-Iwoye in Ogun state.

After cleaning the system of all viruses, I used my N97's 8gb internal memory as a removable drive and did a back-up of my client's computer.


My Nokia N97 mini made my day and saved my client's valuable data! And this is apart from Ovi maps saving me from getting lost on more than one occassion in remote places in Lagos!

Folarin, if you are reading this, big congrats. This is a gadget to own. To collect your phone, please be at the official launch of the E7 phone tomorrow May 6, 2011, at 4Point By Sheraton, Lekki, with proof of identification.

We don't have your contact so we can't email or call you, but you can email me at lindaikeji@gmail.com. If you know who he is, pls tell him the good news and ask him to contact me asap.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this competition. We will do more of this in the future. God bless everyone!

How is this more creative than the person who wrote about helping deliver a life goat or was it cow?

At anon 3.47
Jealousy is a bad trait. You lost. Go and soak garri OR get off your ass make some money and buy yourself one. I don't enter contests cz when I want something I just go to the store and buy it.

Painful I didn't win the super E7, but just like M.I Abaga said, if we dont win cars (phones) will buy them.
Congrat to Micheal, his nokia experience was really creative.
Thumbs up Linda, we need more freebies like this!!

yimu!.. they will never find this mysterious Folarin.. #JustSaying

lol. I agree with 3:47, this was not in anyway unique and creative... Then again, I guess Nokia is more interested in a techie guy than a human interest guy...

Either way, Symbian OS has been abandoned by Nokia itself, so as good as this phone is, it's already at the end of its shelf life.

but he already has 1.... how bout giving it to someone who doesn't have any?

Linda Ikeji said...

@anon 11.19, yimu? so u think giving out a 100k phone is a big deal to the Nokia company? lol. well, if this folarin guy doesn't show up after a while, Nokia will have to pick another winner.

@anon 8.03, who already has one? folarin? do u personally know him? pls ask him to get in touch with me

I didnt enter d contest. But while going thru d creative write-ups, this particular one stood out. I jst told myself if i was picking d winner i'd choose dis folarin guy. That was rlly creative.
The other one that stood out was d woman that used her nokia fone to take her baby's photograph, and framed n hung it on her wall. That her guests think it's a professional photographer that took it....
Anyway, congrats 2 d winner
