Your chance to win one of two Creative Zen Stone MP3 players or a Phillips MP3 player

Our last contest for a Flip Video camcorder went very well and ended with one lucky reader taking home a 1 hour digital video camcorder. It’s time for us to do it again!

zenstone.jpgRecently I had a chance to review the Creative Zen Stone. This little MP3 player impressed me to no end. Sound quality is great, it holds 16.5 hours of music in it’s 1GB of flash memory, has a 10 hour or so battery life and it weighs just about nothing. I liked this little player so much, I decided we had to give away two of them!

In addition to the two Zen Stones, I’ve also got a Phillips 512MB/Mo MP3 player to give away. The Phillips 512MB/Mo holds up to 200 songs in MP3 or WMA format, connects directly via USB and also serves as a voice recorder.phillips.jpg

In short, enter this contest and you could win one of two Zen Stones or a Phillips 512MB/Mo player.
