Earlier this week we pulled the trigger on the rebranding of Smartwatch Fans to Connectedly. In case you missed our Welcome Post, be sure to give it a read as it lays out our mission and vision for Connectedly. We're incredibly excited to add Connectedly to our Mobile Nations family of sites as are so many of you - the shared enthusiasm from the tech community for Connectedly and our expanded coverage beyond mobile platforms into the connected devices space has been fantastic!
With May 1st here and a few days of smooth running now behind us after the site launch, it's time to kickstart things into action around here with our first Connectedly Community Contest! We have some great prizes to be won, and we've engineered the contest in such a way that the more you visit Connectedly and participate in the article comment and forum discussion all month long, the more chances you will earn to win. Keep reading for all the details!

Only quality posts will be considered eligible for contest entry. One word replies and wasteful posts will not qualify. We want you participating in the discussion, not spamming it.
While we encourage everybody to participate in the community with multiple contributions each and every day, for the purpose of this contest only your first article comment or forum post each day will count as an entry. This provides everybody with a fair chance to win - if we we gave away a chance to win with every post, it would be to easy for one or two people to run away with victory by posting here all day long.
