    How ironic, without intending to, I downloaded the manual for this phone to answer a question that earned me the rep to get my 3-fold chance of winning. Roll on Monday. Fingers crossed! Commented Oct 20, 2011 at 13:31
  • When and where will the winner be announced?

  • @SamTheBrandΨ we're waiting... ;) Commented Oct 24, 2011 at 19:02
  • Ah good, it's Monday 24th. So you'll be needing my address to post the phone to won't you? ;) Commented Oct 24, 2011 at 19:12

Congratulations to Mike Stride (@stridermike) of Southport, UK, who was one of 272 people to enter by RT-ing the @STackHQ contest announcement. Stride did not triple his chances of winning by earning 5 rep on the Android site. If he didn't have Android questions before, the UK citizen may come up with a few as he tries to get his brand new US-locked Samsung Galaxy SII up and running!

Stay tuned for another Android contest in the coming weeks.

  • Does Mike Stride have an account? A Google search doesn't reveal any instance of "stridermike" on this site except for this post Commented Oct 25, 2011 at 6:59
  • @SamTheBrand where there any winners announced for the previous competition? Think I remember seeing some new names during that week.

  • @KyleCronin - As far as I know, Mike Stride does not have an account. But that was never a prerequisite of the contest. Commented Oct 25, 2011 at 14:26
  • @SamTheBrandΨ isn't that first under 'The Rules'? Commented Oct 25, 2011 at 16:28
  • @KyleCronin - Yikes. You're right. From what I wrote, it may be interpreted that owning a SE profile is a prerequisite. I should have been more clear, and in future contests I will be. Commented Oct 25, 2011 at 18:02

    @SamTheBrandΨ FWIW, I think that having an account definitely should be a prerequisite to win. The tweet should probably also mention that the link has the rules, and not simply a way to triple your chances Commented Oct 25, 2011 at 18:13
  • I WAS ROBBED!!! Oh and congrats @stridermike ;) Commented Oct 25, 2011 at 19:30
  • Congrats Mike. I expect to see some questions (and answers) about your SGS2.
