Win an HTC Imagio, Courtesy of HTC USA

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Events" @ 08:00 AM

In a continuation of our re-launch contest, up for grabs is an HTC Imagio, a Verizon network phone, donated courtesy of the generous people at HTC. This is a really nice phone, featuring a 5 megapixel camera, a 3.6 inch 480 x 800 (WVGA) touch screen, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 1500 mAh battery, a Qualcomm 528mhz CPU, 288 MB of RAM, 512 MB of on-board storage, a microSD card slot, and GPS. Oh, and that cool little kick-stand! I wish every device had a little kick-stand like that, it's great for watching videos while on a plane, etc.

Because this is a Verizon device, this contest is only open to people from the USA - sorry rest of the world! To enter to win, all you have to do is post a message telling me what phone you're using now, and in what way the HTC Imagio would be superior to your - how would it give you a better Windows Phone experience?

The contest will run until Friday, July the 2nd, at 3pm GMT -7. One entry per person, and a random drawing will determine the winner. The will will be notified via email and forum private message, and will have 72 hours to claim their prize.

UPDATE: The contest is now over, and the winner is looneytoone! I had asked how the HTC Imagio would provide a better experience than the phone you currently had, and here was looneytoone's answer:

"I am currently using a Droid. After working with Windows CE and Windows Phone, etc, I thought it was time to check out something with a "buzz" behind it and went to Android. Yet still, for some reason, I continue to follow and keep up with Windows. Has my Droid experience been good, yep! But I miss the connectibility with Exchange and other apps that I've gotten use to. Plus the camera rocks on the Imagio. I think I'd come back home if I won this great phone."

Welcome back looneytoone!

Gizmodo Takes a Look at the Verizon HTC Imagio

"Verizon's HTC Imagio is a touchscreen Windows Mobile 6.5 handset, or "Windows Phone," with a healthy, if expected, spec set, iiiiinnncluding!: a 3.6-inch WVGA screen, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and microSD storage expansion (but sadly, no included card). It's also the first smartphone with V CAST Mobile TV, which is a Flo TV-based live streaming TV service that looks and feels a bit like digital cable, phone-ified. Accordingly, it has an adorable kickstand."

This $200-with-contract device - or $100 after a rebate - is a study in how flexible Windows Mobile is. So flexible, in fact, that HTC took out almost everything that Microsoft put into Windows Mobile 6.5. Start Menu? Replaced by HTC software. Home screen? Replaced by HTC software. Internet Explorer 6? Replaced by HTC software. I've never seen a device launch with a new operating system, then work so hard to cover up that operating system. Microsoft has a significant problem on their hands here when their biggest partner wants to make the device look and act nothing like Microsoft's vision for the software. I can't really blame HTC though - without their investment into TouchFlo3D (now dubbed HTC Sense I believe), Windows Mobile phones would have been even worse off.

It's Windows Mobile 6.5 launch day, and that means that the sites that were lucky enough to get devices are launching their content. Here we have Michael Oryl taking a look at the HTC Imagio on Verizon, and the HTC Pure on AT&T.
