Be selfish for Valentine’s Day win yourself a Motorola ATRIX HD

- February 7th, 2013

At this time of the year my InBox usually gets flooded with heart-infused PR pitches vying for my attention. But when this one arrived with the subject line – “Tis the season to be single & selfish – treat yourself with the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day,” I was teetering on  “Return to sender”, but my actual reply was a single word – “Really?”

I received an immediate response.

“Figured you guys get enough “for your boyfriend”, “for your wife” pitches. Wanted to try to grab your attention. Besides, there are a lot of singles out there that could use some love and attention from Cupid.”

That was just the reply;  The pitch itself was quite edgy.

“Tis the season for relishing in the freedom, bliss and selfish conveniences of being single. Stomp on that heart-shaped balloon, roll your eyes at public displays of affection and this Valentine’s Day, buy something nice for yourself.”

Included was this promo on a number of Motorola offerings from Virgin, Bell Mobility and Rogers.

“See below for some ideas from MOTOROLA that will satisfy your desire for the perfect mobile partner,” it read.  “These phones might not hold your hand in a sad movie, but they fit in your pocket and won’t let you down. Well, there’s certainly nothing better as an attention grabber like the real truth and I think everyone could use a little cuddle from cupid.”

The first word that came to mind, in the spirit of that MasterCard commercial – PRICELESS!

Nevertheless, we’re not going to be selfish. We’re giving you an opportunity to win a MOTOROLA ATRIX HD LTE. What you do with it is up to you! If you win, you can give it to your loved one or keep it for yourself.

About the phone

The MOTOROLA ATRIX HD LTE features a strong frame, 4.5” scratch-resistant HD screen and a high-tech invisible nano-coating that acts a splash guard, ideal for wherever your busy day takes you!

It has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory expandable up to an additional 32GB. 8-megapixel rear with a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera that offers 1080p HD video capture.

One neat feature of this model is SMARTACTIONS, a free pre-installed app that allows your phone to adapt to your lifestyle by creating the ability to intelligently suggest and automate routine actions.

It operates on Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean and runs exclusively on Bell Mobility.

    This phone looks quite amazing. I think I would keep it for me…or else give it to someone that I love!

    This phone looks spectacular. Scratch resistant AND a splash guard? We might be soulmates :) I would keep the phone. My old (but new) phone would be donated to someone great and possibly phoneless.

    This phone would put me in touch with my children and friends. I feel isolated, having only email and land-line. No one uses those any more!
