Motorola, fresh off being officially owned by Google, is looking to help businesses get on their feet in the mobile game with a new contest.

They’ll be picking 10 winners to set up with tablets and phones, namely a DROID RAZR MAXX, a XYBOARD 8.2 and even a laptop dock along with some other accessories. You could win up to $1,500 worth in prizes, so if you need a kickstart for your business, head over to their Facebook page now.

  • Unlock those bootloaders first before you even THINK about trying to fix up anyone else. {{-_-}}

  • DSter

    Sounds like they haven’t fired enough people yet.

  • S2556

    I am entering for sure. I am using an OG Droid that if it turns off it has to be completely taken apart to be turned back on among many other things

    • Michael

      Ny og droid still works amazingly, it is my music player/ alarm clock, and sometimes game phone (because calls and messages always revert me back to beginning of games),and because it is louder than my Nexus

      • S2556

        Thats awesome. Its been my day to day for a long long time haha. It worked great back in the day but it wants to retire now

  • ddevito

    start with the man in the mirror Moto, then we’ll talk about giving ME a makeover

  • I wonder if my story of going from the OG to Bionic and encountering the locked bootloader would win.

    • angermeans

      Ill be rooting for ya but for some reason I think one should know that before buying especially this day and age and being from moto

      • r0lct

        You had be at “I’ll be rooting”

      • It was a joke. ಠ_ಠ

  • Radgatt

    …sure why not…

  • Typical Google minion says:

    #1 unlock bootloaders

    • LiterofCola

      Try harder next time.

    • JoshGroff

      The problem is not with them being locked, it’s with the encryption. If they were just locked, it wouldn’t be as much of a problem.

  • Pedro


    It’s 2012. Give me an up to date version of the OG. Preferably a slider and non-slider version. All the benefits of it. None of the subsequent bullshit. You know what I mean.

    I’ll get back into business with you.

    • LiterofCola

      Cause nothing that has come after was worth anything, right?

      • JoshGroff

        Apparently he overlooked the Xoom and Bionic/RAZR/D4.
