The 10 Days of Dingoo Competition. Easier than falling off a bike …

The indomitable guys at can’t get enough of the eyeballs you all so generously donate, and although the response to their last sponsored competition was, shall we say, anaemic, you can’t keep a good ecommerce site down! They’re back for more, offering YOU, Dingoo fans, something to while the days away until the silly season truly explodes.

And so today, I announce the 10 Days of Dingoo Competition, where if you can’t lift a finger to enter, then well, I fear for Gen Y.

Starting 5 December 2011, and then on 7 Dec, 9 Dec, 11 Dec, 13 Dec, 15 Dec, 17 Dec, 19 Dec, 21 Dec and 23 Dec (each date is a “Competition Day”), there’ll be one prize on offer each day.

The grand prize on the 23rd is a frickin’ Dingoo A330, delivered to your door!

All you have to do to win a prize is:

On each Competition Day, email me at :


In the Body, include

Your Name, Address and the Magic Words: “Welcome from [Insert name of Country]! Gimme da frickin’ Christmas Joy!!”.

Feel free to tell us more about why you love the dingoo … or how you the music died with Michael, or if you’re hot, send naughty pictures … but every entry must contain the magic words to be valid!

I will randomly pick an email entry for each Competition Day, and that lucky entrant will win the prize for that day!

This is the loot on offer:
