Nexus 4 raffle winner and runners up announcement


Well our Nexus 4 raffle was a huge success, with 320 entries received. With your help, we raised over $1600 for the Ausdroid Foundation, which is a fantastic result.

To make things a little more exciting, we decided to throw in two runner up prizes, two KidRobot Simpsons figurines, which we announced on our social media channels a couple of days ago.

So without further ado, let’s get into it. We wrote out raffle tickets for each eligible entrant, and placed them in a giant bowl, which was shaken for a while to make sure everything was nice and mixed. A spot of quality control ensured that no ‘clumps’ of tickets existed, and that there was a nice random mix in the bowl. We then drew three tickets from the bowl, after a good rummage around to make sure everything was mixed further.

In order drawn:

  1. Ticket D 36, in the name of Minh-Tam Nguyen, of the Australian Capital Territory, wins a brand new Nexus 4;
  2. Ticket E 18, in the name of Thai Nguyen, of Victoria, wins a KidRobot Simpsons Figurine; and
  3. Ticket E 79, in the name of Jonathan Villaret, of New South Wales, wins a KidRobot Simpsons Figurine.

Congratulations guys! We’ll be contacting our prize winners today to make sure they know they’ve won.

A big thank you from myself, the team at Ausdroid, and the Foundation team as well. We want to extend an extra special thanks to those of you who donated $50 or more. Thai, Sam, John, Zarif, Gavin and Johnny .. thanks so much guys. While you couldn’t all win a prize, the Foundation is working on a way to recognise your contribution in a different way. We’ll be in touch.

We look forward to doing more competitions like this in future, but of course, we will continue to have free competitions and giveaways as well to keep it fair and accessible to everyone!

He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.
