Win 1 of 3 Nokia N97 phones

Okay folks, it’s here… this is your chance to be one of the first 97 people worldwide to own a Nokia N97! That’s right, before it officially launches.

What is it and how does it work?

Search for N is a global competition that is running concurrently in China, UAE (Dubai), Russia, France, Benelux, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and South Africa. Over a period of seven days (26 May – 2 Jun), 5 cryptic clues will be published on this blog (as well as other websites / blogs that have partnered with Nokia globally), on selected days at 1pm SA time. Once you solve all 5 riddles, email your answers to me immediately, as the first three correct entries received will each win a Nokia N97 handset.  The local version of this competition is being run on four blogs, www.nafisa.co.za being one of them.

It starts right now, so here’s your first clue:

Haptic and tactile are types of these

Remember to keep your answers and send them all together (along with a scanned copy of your ID) via email to me on this address as soon as you solve the last riddle. Do not answer via comments.

Basic rules

  1. This competition is open to all South African citizens with a valid ID
  2. Participants have to be 18 years or older
  3. Winners will be announced once their identities has been verified (include a scanned copy of your ID with your answers). If you want to fax them through, email me and I will provide you with a number.
  4. If winners do not respond to formal notification within 1 week, Nokia will select a random replacement winner
  5. Prizes are neither transferable nor exchangeable for cash
  6. Winner agrees to allow their photograph to be taken and published in print media or to appear on radio, the internet & television when accepting his/her prize

Full T&C’s available here.

So, why am I running this competition?
Quite simply because I rock and Nokia agrees 😉

  • @Chris – Just remember, you’re searching for N and I’m giving N97’s away.

  • Chris Stobbs

    he he he
    Apparently this site is supposed to validate your answers and I think it’s wrong could you just confirm this site is working.
    I’ve tried my answer which I think is correct but it says it’s wrong…
    http://blogs.nokia.com/nseries/index.php/search-for-n/

    could you check for me?

  • I’m not sure how that site is supposed to work but I won’t be using it to validate answers because I already have them. Sorry about that.

  • Chris Stobbs

    I know you have the answers I was just wondering you could type in your first answer and check what the site response is?
    The site is supposed the be the official Search for N site with links to all the bloggers around the world that are involved. it’s not something that is going to steal your answers I promise…

  • Okay, I’ve checked, put in the correct answer but it’s marking it incorrect. Hmmm.

  • Chris Stobbs

    thank you for that…
    Now at last I can stop doubting myself 🙂

  • joe

    is the answer touchscreen?

  • @mo – I wasn’t given anything from Nokia South Africa to do so.

    @joe – Is there any competition that confirms or denies an answer before it officially ends?

  • Denis

    can we send a copy of our ids after you confirm if we’re winners or not?

    Not really keen just sending it if im not gna win 😉

  • @Denis – unfortunately not. Because it’s a global competition, we need to make sure South Africans win in SA.
