500,000 CEOs contest: make the webOS case to HP, win a TouchPad!

Yesterday was a big day for the webOS community: first HP pushed Leo Apotheker out the door and anointed former eBay chief Meg Whitman as the new CEO, and then the PreCentral Forums jumped up over 500,000 registered members. And you know what? We want to celebrate!

We want to give away a 32GB HP TouchPad, and will even throw in a case and Bluetooth keyboard for good measure, and we’re sure you’d like to win that very same prize! What to do? Record, craft, photoshop, or otherwise create an audio and/or visual message to the HP Board of Directors and new CEO Meg Whitman telling them what you think they should do with webOS.

You can make a video, put together a dramatic reading, or even sketch out your plan on a napkin (just be sure you don’t use it to wipe the sauce off your face until after you’ve scanned it) and send your entry to contest@precentral.net (please upload videos to YouTube or another embeddable video service).

We’ll pick the best and most creative entries and put them up to a community vote to decide who gets a shiny new TouchPad! Also, we’re perfectly cool with you sharing your entries with the world – in fact we encourage it. Go ahead a show it off on Twitter, just me sure to mention @PreCentral, @HP, and @MegWhitman (just so HP and the new CEO get the message) and include the #webOSOS hashtag!

We'll take entries up through Saturday, October 1st, ending at midnight Eastern Standard Time. So get cracking - you've got a week to get your entry together for your chance to win a 32GB HP TouchPad!
