Congratulations to Rick Markus who will soon be receiving a Nexus One in the post from us in our second free giveaway. We thought he was in Dublin Ireland from a quick glance at his Twitter location but have just realised that it’s Dublin USA after exchanging contact details with him! Living in Europe so long it’s easy to forget that there’s more than just one Dublin in the world.
We had a tough time choosing the winning re-tweet as there were many strong contenders with all kinds of interesting wordplay on our posts. We’ve also had some fairly dedicated re-tweeters - Gonçalo Silva deserves a special mention for being our most dedicated fan with more than 40 re-tweets of articles from all across the site.
The Nexus One goes to the re-tweet that we liked the most however and this one from Rick stood out. We chose it as the winning tweet because it’s concise but also subtly clever with some double meaning on Desirable (plus we were imagining it being spoken in a soft Irish lilt). Kind of rolls off the tongue.

Rick also re-tweeted several other strong contenders which ended up on our final short list making him the most consistently entertaining re-tweeter since his first back on 29th Jan.
So congratulations to Rick, and thanks to everyone who participated. I feel for everyone who missed out this time - I know some people have put some real effort into their tweets and appreciate that. I’m going to be dreaming up some more ways of getting Nexus handsets into the hands of real fans, and of course following all the latest on these new phones coming from Google, so if you’ve enjoyed reading so far, thank you, and stay tuned for more.
