Mini iPad. Not-So-Mini Prizes.

IMG_6957

iStore and iPad Mini have just launched a campaign that will send one lucky punter and his/her family on the trip of a lifetime to the value of R250 000. I’ve been dreaming about what I’d do with this prize if I won it, and it’s almost inconceivable. All I know is my itinerary starts with Vietnam and ends in a pair of Louboutins in Paris. 

I’ve spent the week reviewing the iPad Mini and the powers she possesses. This was an easy review for me. You see, my boyf won one a couple of months ago at Design Indaba and I’ve been drooling over his ever since. At first I thought Apple was silly for bringing it out, I mean, what need could anyone possibly have for a tiny iPad? I answered that question for myself pretty quickly: it’s smaller, lighter, and well, more ‘me’. The iPad Mini is the perfect marriage between the iPad and the e-reader which is exactly what I need in a device of this nature. 

Here’s a look at some of what you can do with an iPad Mini, or at least, the stuff I like to do with mine…

I love that she’s still big enough to work and research from, but small enough to lie in bed and read with, or watch videos from without your arm falling off. The apps photographed above in order of appearance are:

  • Gmail
  • Kindle for iPad 
  • Pinterest 
  • TED
  • Scrabble 
  • The New York Times
  • Epicurious
  • Flipboard
  • Angry Birds
  • Penultimate
  • Numbers & Pages
  • News 24
  • Instagram

Right. So this is where it gets sexy. There’s a lot up for grabs here, so follow closely…

1. Win Your Dream Trip Worth R250 000

To get in on the action you need to get down to your local iStore and get your paws on the iPad Mini. Loaded onto it is the competition app that will ask you a few short questions about your dream vacation etc. Submit details and you’re in the running. If you actually buy an iPad Mini between now and June 7th, you’ll obtain 20 additional entries. Click here to view the competition online.

2. Win One of Six Macbook Airs

By entering the competition above and sharing to facebook, you’re automatically entered to win one of 6 Macbook Airs. That’s one each week for the duration of this campaign. 

3. Win an iPad Mini, courtesy of ME!

Right, so iStore are running a blogger challenge in conjunction with this competition and one of us stands the chance to win a R20 000 travel voucher. Pretty awesome, right? Well, I’ve decided that if I win, I will buy an iPad Mini for one of my readers as a thank you for helping me win the prize. You’ll need to click here to vote via the iStore facebook tab, but please also leave a comment on this blog post telling me you’ve voted for me so I can include you in the draw if I actually do win this thing. Yikes! If you’re reading this via mobile, click here to vote.
