Nokia's Cardboard Windows Phone Challenge winners announced

Remember earlier this month Nokia announced a cardboard challenge where participants had to build a Windows Phone out of... well... cardboard. At stake, a Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone and Nokia 808 Pureview.

Nokia describes the turn out as impressive and we have to agree, the level of detail, accuracy and creativity is impressive.  Hard to imagine how much time it took with the hot glue gun and X-acto knife to create some of these cardboard Windows Phones.

  • Are those mushrooms on the side? I never do drugs but when I tried smoking shrooms, I couldn't keep the pizza lit long enough.
  • Uh, no.  They should be earbuds, not 'shrooms.
  • Lol, my bad... But they do look like shrooms, don't they?
  • Hahaha. Thanks for providing me with lols.
  • AWSOME CREATIVITY
  • Wait, this was serious?
  • I am all Nokia, but I find it disappointing that Nokia did not make the 920 the prize for this contest.
    The winners should have been shipped a 920 when it launches. Not an old 900 or 808!
  • +1
  • +1
  • +2
     
  • Congrats to the winners! Too bad they couldn't have gotten a 920 instead though.
  • They can at least sell them and buy a 920 with spare change, kind of odd still.
  • They could very well create another challenge? and the 920 could be the prize then...when the phone's actually released? The winners got free gears from just cardboards...how can anybody look at this as glass half empty?
    question...question...question.......
     
    PS gratz to the winners
  • Make believe Lumia 920’s that someone meticulously toiled over.  Isn’t that sort of like making a blowup doll?
  • Great work :-)
