Mobilicity has announced that 23-year-old Kathryn Tom has won their CEO Blogger contest. She’ll follow CEO Dave Dobbin around and witness his every move while he treks across Canada to do his “Prove It To You” Tour. Together they’ll visit Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary and compare the Mobilicity network and their 20-cent-a-minute North American travel rates to the other carriers (Rogers, Bell and TELUS).
Probably the best news for those wanting a device is that Mobilicity will be hosting several Customer Appreciation Events in each city where they will give out free food, giveaways and $0 BlackBerry devices. The first one will be this Thursday in a few GTA locations from 4-7pm.
Update: For the Toronto locations there will be 80 BlackBerry Bold 9780 and Curve 3G (combined). To get in on the Bold 9780 deal for the $0 BlackBerry you will need to sign up for the 12 multi-month with data and BIS. For the Curve you’ll have to sign up on a 3 or 6 month multi-month with data and BIS. In addition, we’ve been informed that it’s only for new activations and one per customer.
