If you’ve thought about jumping onto the mobile mail bandwagon for a while, now might be a good time to take the plunge. While the Yahoo! Mobile team has done a lot to make Mail (and other Y! products) work really well on a variety of mobile phones, the experience they’ve developed for certain smartphones (like BlackBerry or iPhone) is really awesome. For me, the divide between having to actively check my email and having my device notify me when new messages arrive is Grand Canyon-esque.
That’s why I think this promotion from the Yahoo! Mobile team is something really worth checking out. They are giving out a BlackBerry Pearl a day for the rest of May. All you have to do is sign-up for the promotion and then try using Yahoo! Mail on any data enabled phone. Once you’ve done so you’ll get entered into daily drawings when you use Yahoo! Mail. Winners get to choose the color and carrier for their new Pearl.
Check out the Yahoo! Mobile Sweepstakes page for all the details on entries, drawings, and timing. Also note that the checkbox for receiving future promos from BlackBerry defaults unchecked, so only check that if you WANT to be alerted about upcoming offers from BlackBerry.
