UPDATE: T-Mo has stepped up the KMobs Challenge by saying they will award a random follower a Samsung Vibrant 4G handset! They are taking this challenge pretty serious. Get your tweet in and follow T-Mobile with the hashtag #kmobschallenge.
One of our friends from the CyanogenMod team, KMobs, has taken on a unique challenge in hopes of winning a T-Mobile G-Slate for his birthday. The challenge? Help T-Mobile get to 100,000 Twitter followers in week’s time. KMobs made the challenge to T-Mo over twitter as a joke, but was pleasantly surprise when which Magenta accepted! It’s a pretty cool move on their part, especially when they couch it in the fact that T-Mo wants to support the dev community when they can. When asked for a quote, KMobs had this to say:
I think it’s great that T-mobile is willing to take a joke and make it into a reality. However, the larger picture here is how supportive they are of what we as developers choose to do with our hardware.
To help KMobs win a T-Mo G-Slate for his birthday, you simply have to go and follow T-Mo on their twitter account, and give them a message with the hashtag #KMobsChallenge. As of press time for this article, T-Mo needed 11,326 more followers to reach the goal. Let’s help T-Mo get there and KMobs win that G-Slate.
