Share your Android commercial idea and win a prize for your phone (#android)

Hey, T-Mobile, can we get some commercial love for Android? Most G1 and myTouch owners love our phones, but it would be nice if you did more to let other people know the benefits of having Android in your pocket. Sadly, you haven’t pushed into the mainstream media like AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon have done with their flagship smartphone devices. wants to know: how do you think Android should be promoted? App-heavy promos like the iPhone or those, um, “esoteric” Palm Pre commercials?

Tell us in the comments section how you would promote an Android device and you could win a $20 gift certificate from We’ve already covered MusicSkins as a resource to get scratch-resistant, “premium quality vinyl that provides a high-gloss photo grade finish.” Jazz up your T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream with their skins or use the Customizer tool that creates vinyl skins of personal photos, graphics, and artwork. You can turn almost any image into a skin.

Here’s how to enter the contest and win a $20 gift certificate provided by MusicSkins:

1. Write a comment in this post explaining how you would promote Android – whether it’s a TV spot or viral video.

2. If you haven’t already, follow the @androinica Twitter feed and tweet any message that ends with an #androinica tag

All entries must be posted by Sunday, August 23, at 11:59 PM Eastern. All contestants must own an Android device (honor code, you guys).  The only Android device currently supported by MusicSkins is the G1/Dream; however, if you own a different Android device and still wish to participate, you may apply the code towards use on another product (laptop skins or gaming device skins).

We will select Three (3) winners when the promotion is complete.
