Get a Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition for free

If you are a fan of Motorola’s unique smart phone design and have been waiting to have the awesome Motorola DROID RAZR M, here is an offer for you. What do you have to do? Just a tweet. How much do you have to pay? Zero bucks. Yes, I am very serious!

This is a competition hosted by Motorola itself, to promote the smart phone if you ask me. The company is offering five DROID RAZR M handsets, that too the developer editions. Develop editions of smart phones usually sell for more money than the usual models. So what is the advantage of having a developer edition smart phone, you ask?

The advantage is that the boot loader can be unlocked. Most carriers would not want their customers to meddle with the smart phones they are supplying. So they lock the bootloader, which means that the users will not be able to root the smart phone, and hence unlock it or install custom ROMs on it. But with a developer edition of a smart phone, you can do almost anything you want. You can even brick it.

So what exactly do you need to do to win a Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition smart phone? Phone Arena explains this as follows:

From now through October 2nd at 11:59pm EDT, you need to send to @Motorola a tweet telling the company what you would do with the Motorola DROID RAZR M Developer Edition. The tweet needs to be directed to #UnlockRAZRM and the judges (no, Judge Lucy Koh is not one of them, wise guy) will select the best 5 responses. Originality will account for 30% of your score, showing your desire for the particular model equals another 30% while following the rules of the contest makes up the remaining 40%.

So what are you waiting for? Tweet right now, but after a little bit of thinking as to what you are going to tweet. And in case you are one among the lucky five, you will have to report the $549.99 retail price of the device on your taxes. All the best!
