Win a Lumia 900 Windows Phone by captioning this photo

WP Central

Ben (the "PC Guy" and "Mass Windows Phone Marketing Agent") Rudolph is returning with a slightly different attempt to give away Windows Phones. Should you desire what we'd assume to be a white Lumia 900, then you might be in with a chance of winning one (image / competition idea courtesy of Nokia For Us). Simply use your creative powers to create a suitable caption for the above photo, which sits the Nokia device next to a white bar of Dove soap.

How does one enter with their snazzy caption? Simply tweet your entry, adding the #captionthatlumia (click to view some of the entires already published) hashtag. The competition is running through until April 29th (11:59pm PT) when Rudolph will create a post on the Windows team blog announcing the winners. You can enter as many captions as you like, we look forward to reading yours. It's at least a refreshing change from the Smoked by Windows Phone campaign.

I also need to know the rules of this and the area of the competition before I unlock my right brain. Don't want to lose my creativity for nothing now do I.

Cleaner than soap.

jsnod25 says:

Sad when a phone looks cleaner than a bar of soap.

IceReign910 says:

The Lumia 900 is so white that, not even a bar of dove soap can compare to it's greatness.

IceReign910 says:

jddesigned says:

I don't know which I'd be more concerned about dropping in a prison shower

astroXP says:

Do you guys think this could be considered "offensive" or not "playing nice"?

tidalkingv says:

1.  a bar of soap to wash away all that disgusting stuff of iPhone & Android has left on you over the years!
2. Nokia, here to wash away all the bad memories iPhone has left in your brain.

aashishl says:

Ugh, you have to use Twitter?
Fuck that.

sherwin892 says:

Dorknight says:

Why is it always freaking twitter entries?? Not everyone uses twitter!! :(

jasonbeckett says: with PeopleHub.

WinampLlama says:

New smoked by lumia campaign,next stop a scarface style pile of cocaine on a desk

willied says:

Most of the entries suck. I thought this one was pretty good, though:
"I don't always bathe, but when I do, it's with my Lumia."

mythos13 says:

I don't think the winner is here.

lolken says:

with its slick outter shell..your pubes wont stick to the white lumia 900!!!

mythos13 says:

As long as you're willing to put in a bit work, there is no reason to wait for the whiite Lumia's to come back in stock to get one.

Keep ur hands clean to keep fingerprints off lol

xcarnalx says:

Refreshing and Squeaky Clean.

Jazmac says:

Bring her to talk with the Nokia Lumia 900.
Get her to stay with Dove.

Lumia 900: Joy that's 99.44 pure

jasonbeckett says:

I want to use 99.44% too...but then I remembered it's the IVORY slogan. Maybe no one will notice.

jbjtkbw00#AC says:

iPhones are just soap. Everyone uses it. Android phones are like Irish Spring. Wakes you up, but a little too much for most people. Windows Phone is like a Dove. Smooth, fresh, and a guarantees clean feeling after using it.

gfrost says:

Hello lover...

iAdrian23 says:

The new White Lumia 900! You'll no longer need a soap to shine among the sheeps.

syazeee says:

Lumia 900 is so addictive that you don't want to keep it away from yourself even when you are in!!!

b3o says:

Dove: Campaign for Real Beauty (2004)
Nokia: Lumia 900 (2012) - now in white.

syazeee says:

You became beautiful using Dove and now its time to get smart using Lumia 900.

ahuczek says:

You guys know the contest isn't read here right. Probably just having fun but I thought I'd remind you all. Gotta tweet it or its a wash.

Mystictrust says:

I was thinking the same thing... especially with those using hashtags in the comments. Or they could just be re-posting their already tweeted entry here for fun and we're both killing the mood :P

Android, time to clean up your act - the Lumia has landed.

jasonbeckett says:

Here's what I came up with...I'm sure there are far more creative people out there than me.

Mystictrust says:

"A phone so pure it makes soap feel dirty"
Niiiiicce! I liked that one :) From everything I've seen, that caption should be up there with the "finalists" (IMHO).

Lumia 900 so fresh and so clean
