Twitter Contest: Win an HP Veer or Pre3 – sponsored by MaKleSoft! 16

There are a lot of great developers in the webOS App Catalog, pumping out a lot of great apps. But it can be hard to get exposure to the masses, as evidenced by HP’s efforts like the app giveaways and Pivot. But sometimes developers just need to take things into their own hands. This week, MaKleSoft has partnered up with us at PreCentral to give away two phones – a QWERTZ HP Pre3 and QWERTZ HP Veer.

Both phones are unlocked GSM German-keyed examples of the most recent webOS phones, which essentially means that the Z and the Y have swapped places (that can be changed on the software side with the WebOS Internals Meta-Doctor), running the latest versions of webOS. And yes, you can set the language as English. So there might be a little bit of work to make it QWERTY, but hey, it’s a free phone!

Before we get to the giveaway, a little bit about our sponsor: Martin Kleinschrodt – known as MaKleSoft to the webOS community – has been making apps for webOS for some time now, including the popular SecuStore data locker and Plancastic for webOS phones, as well as SecuStore 2 and tabbed web browser Advanced Browser for the TouchPad. Martin’s one of our favorite webOS app developers (okay, we love all of them) and we’re pleased to be able to partner with him for this giveaway.

Here’s how it works: all you have to do is follow @PreCentral (that’s us) and @MaKleSoft (that’s the developer) on Twitter and retweet the following message to be entered:

Follow @PreCentral and @MaKleSoft (SecuStore2, Adv. Browser) and RT this for a chance to win a Pre3 or Veer!

We’ll let this run through the end of the week and then we’ll select one random winner to receive the Pre3, and another the Veer. It’s that easy! We’ll even make it easy for you to enter: Just click this link to get your entry prepped on Twitter. Good luck and happy Tweeting!


I want a Pre 3!!!

Maybe it right time to win... :) I hope

Done!! Cant wait for the change at a Pre3!!!!!

As much as I would like a Pre 3, Meh Twitter.

I am really getting sick of my ATT Pre Plus with all of my friends rocking up to date hardware on Andriod. A Pre 3 would get me feeling like I am back in the game.

Count me in, after using webOS a few weeks I'm always swiping up on my android phone and wondering for a second why the app hasn't minimsed back to the card view? sign of a good interface I guess!

I just entered... my Pre- is about dead really need some more life in my webOS life... I HATE that I am considering a iphone 4S on sprint but what other choice do i have :'( please don't let me downgrade!!!

Now that I have been prodded to open a twitter account so that I can win a fabulous phone, what is the best twitter app? I tried Spaz and could not get it to work.

I want a pre3! @ dgcorn, the best one for the Touchpad is SpazHD for the moment. You could also buy Glimpse and incredible! For phones there is spaz, phnx, carbon, bad kitty, and others

I want a pre3

Wonder why someone hasn't bought a case, and brought them over yet... just this website and forum could presale the pre3, go get them, and sell the stock to us all.

Just a thought.

i really want a Hp smartphone after getting myself a Touchpad

I wanted 2 buy a Pre 3 but here in my country (Colombia) doesn't exist )=

Why the German version? The US version is so much cheaper and you can unlock both, the Pre 3 and the HP Veer. i.e. using PalmUnlocker software

give me one!!!

and the lucky winners are... ?
