Winning free phones for our mobile startup


Running a mobile startup can get quite costly when trying to keep up with all the latest devices.  So when we saw the AndroidforAll contest hosted by MetroPCS earler this year, we thought, “hell yeah, let’s win this thing and get ourselves a free phone.”

Guess what? You’re looking at a winning design!    Our co-founder, Jesse Adams, was finally able to put to good use all those years of drawing comic book babes.  To enter the contest, he had to create a custom Android character using an online drawing tool provided by MetroPCS.

10 finalists received free LG optimus phone prizes and a few Android vinyl toys.

Alright, now we just need to win a few tablets…  :)


  1. Congrats on the win!1 I love it when start ups thrive! :-) And now if you need a few tablets – and can’t rely on a competition – come on over to our crowdfunding website for entrepreneurs ( and you can use your social network to help you raise the funding you need to procure those tablets! Either way – wishing you continued good things for your venture!!
