ipad-2-side-by-sideWith the iPad 2 release, we at TechnoBuffalo thought it was the perfect time for a giveaway!  Who wouldn't love the newest shiny gadget without having to spend a penny to get it?

TechnoBuffalo loves its readers, and there's nothing we like more than giving back to you.  To this end, we do live a giveaway around here, and is there any better way to celebrate the release of the iPad 2 than giving one away?  We're even opening up this one to all of our loyal international readers, although you will be awarded the cash equivalent so you can buy a localized version of the highly desired tablet.

Which of the various iPad 2 versions could you potentially walk away with?  The 16GB Wi-Fi version of the iPad 2, but in your choice of black or white.  If someone outside of the United States wins, we;ll send you $499 via PayPal so you can buy one in your own country.  While we realize the same model of the iPad 2 may cost more in your home country, it's still a good chunk of change you can go home with.  If you're in the United States and would prefer the cash, we'll send that your way via PayPal.

To enter, you have from today (March 9th, 2011) until 11:59 PM PST on Thursday March 31st, 2011 to ReTweet our stories on Twitter while adding the hashtag #ipad2giveawayTB.  So a Tweet would look like this:

iPad 2 Twitter giveaway

You may post one Tweet per story, but the number per day is equal to the number we post!  In other words, if we post 15 stories one day, you can have up to 15 entries in the contest.  Don't have a Twitter account yet?  Remember, they're free!

For those of you who live outside of the United States, you follow the same rules for entering.

To recap:

  • ReTweet our stories each day with the hashtag #ipad2giveawayTB (only posts dated March 9th, 2011 through March 31st, 2011 count).
  • Winners will be chosen at random from all of the ReTweets with that hashtag.
  • A winner inside the United States will receive their choice of either a white or black 16GB Wi-Fi iPad 2.  They can also opt for the cash equivalent ($499) to be paid via PayPal, winner must have a PayPal account or access to one.
  • A winner outside of the United States will receive $499 via PayPal, winner must have a PayPal account or access to one.
  • No more than one ReTweet per story, and must include the designated hashtag.  Failure to follow either rule will result in your Tweet not counting.

That's it!  Get to ReTweeting, folks!  And good luck!
