Mother’s Day Giveaway: Roses and a Cell Phone for your Má

It’s definitely no secret that my mother holds a very special place in my life and my heart.  She always has and always will.  Cómo dirían algunos, I guess you could say I’m a big old momma’s boy at heart, LOL!  So, of course, when Cricket Wireless approached me about a potential Mother’s Day partnership, this year, I immediately wanted the ramo de flores to go with this giveaway.  So here’s what I would very much like to send your madrecita:

A dozen roses, plus Cricket's newest Smartphone.

– The brand new Huawei Mercury Smartphone by Cricket

– One month’s free service on this phone with talk, text and data included

– As well as one very colorful and scentful bouquet of flowers

I’m trialing this very phone by Cricket Wireless, which the company itself calls “the best Cricket Smartphone to date, and is the third Cricket smartphone from Huawei.”  Last week, at the Latin Billboard Awards in Miami, the Huawei was definitely a lifesaver.  Even though it’s much cheaper than my Infuse Smartphone and smaller in size, it has a lot of cool features that so far have really impressed me.  For one thing, the battery life is a lot longer than my regular droid.  The Huawei also takes way better pictures than my Infuse… kind of sad when you think about it.  And then, there’s the whole ease of usage.  This phone is really not what I expected from the prepaid provider.  There’s literally no difference in the apps I can download and how they function on my Infuse or the Huawei Mercury.  In fact, the only thing I would change on this phone is that it would function on a 4G network rather than a 3G one.  Pero bueno, that’s not such a huge deal to me anyway.

The other great thing about the Huawei is that it comes with the signature Muve Music app as an add on option to the phone so that you can always take your music with you on the go.

So how do you enter for a chance to win?

It’s simple really.  For Mother’s Day, May 10, 2012 (note this is the date the holiday is celebrated in Mexico and the date that we have always celebrated the occasion in my family) we’re compiling a list of the best and/or favorite songs to dedicate to our madrecitas on their day.  All you have to do to officially enter for  a chance to win this Juan of Words prize pack is leave a comment on this blog post with your favorite Mother’s Day song in any language, as well as your email address where I can reach you if you win, before Friday, May 4, 2012 at 11:59 p.m.  If you win you will have until the following Monday to claim your prize.

¡Así que buena suerte a todos!
