As if there weren’t already enough reasons to be looking forward to the June 16 Xconomy Summit on Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship, today we’re adding a thin, shiny reason with HD video and front and rear cameras. We’re going to throw the names of the first 50 folks to register in June for XSITE 2011 into a drawing for a limited edition Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, provided by Google.
Our own Wade Roush, well known to have a certain, shall we say, fondness for Apple products, deemed this 10.1 inch Android tablet to be a worthy rival to the iPad. And for the Google geeks among you there’s a special bonus: The machine is one of only 5,000 made for last month’s Google I/O Developer Conference and has a custom back imprinted with Google’s “bug droid” logo. Also, did I mention it’s shiny?
We’ll be pulling the lucky winner’s name out of a hat at XSITE 2011, so you have to be there, on the Babson College campus, to claim your prize. (You also have to have a paid, non-student registration to qualify to enter the drawing.) But of course who wouldn’t want to be there? This year’s program features 40-odd speakers—including legendary serial entrepreneur and super angel Desh Deshpande; Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, co-founder of the uber-hot Gilt Groupe; Edward Jung, former software architect of Microsoft and co-founder of Intellectual Ventures; and many many more.
So sign up soon to make sure you’re one of the next 50 49 48…probably best to sign up now. We look forward to seeing you on June 16—and perhaps introducing you to your new Galaxy Tab.
