TechCrunch Friday Giveaway: An EVO 4G #Crunch

So, we’re not huge fans of the EVO 4G, but as some of you commenters have made abundantly clear, you seem to love it (or think you will). Well, here’s your chance to find out first hand. We’re going to give one away to a TechCrunch reader.

The phone is sold out across the U.S. But Google has given us one to give away. And this is better than one you’ll get in the store because a) it’s free and b) you can sign-up for Sprint service for the thing without having to sign a long term contract. Yes, that’s the real deal. So really, you’re getting all the benefits of this phone you would get for the full $449.99 retail price.

So how can you win this? Well first, let me state this sadly this will only be available for U.S.-based readers because of the Sprint requirement (sorry international fans, we still love you and will have other giveaways for you in the future). For those eligible, we’ll keep the rules the same as the iPad we gave away earlier this year (and similar to the Nexus One giveaway we did):

Just “like” (fan) the TechCrunch Facebook page and then do one of two things: either retweet this post, and make sure to include the #crunch hashtag, or leave a comment below telling us why this device must be yours.

The contest ends at noon California time on Saturday. Please only tweet the message once, anyone tweeting repeatedly will be disqualified. We’ll pick a winner tomorrow afternoon and contact you for more details.

Again, this is U.S.-only. And we’ll throw in a TechCrunch t-shirt.

Update: Okay, we’ve randomly selected a winner and have reached out to them to confirm. Thanks for the comments, retweets, and Facebook likes all. We’ll do another contest soon!

Update 2: Congrats to our winner Josh Kugler!
