Engadget's first UK Giveaway: win one of three Sony Xperia S phones!

You asked, you pined and here it is -- welcome to our first (but certainly not last) UK competition. To kick off proceedings, we have three of Sony's latest flagship, the Xperia S, to offer up to our readers on the eastern side of the Atlantic. As it's our first competition for Britons, we advise that you read up on the rules after the break, then just leave a comment below to enter.

Unfortunately, the adorable robot isn't up for grabs in our giveaway (we asked), but if you manage to track down a similar automaton around the UK, Sony's running a separate contest where you can net a free Xperia U in exchange -- visit the more coverage links for hints. Good luck!

The rules:

  • Leave a comment below. Any comment will do. Duplicate entries will be filtered out and discarded, so adding additional comments won't increase your likelihood of winning.

  • This contest is open to all UK residents -- aged 18 years or over! Sorry, we don't make this rule (we hate excluding anyone), so direct your anger at our lawyers and contest laws if you have to be mad.

  • Winners will be chosen randomly. Three winners will receive one (1) new Sony Xperia S. Service does not come included with the prize.

  • If you are chosen, you will be notified by email. Winners must respond within three days of being contacted. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.

  • This unit is purely for promotional giveaway. Sony Mobile UK and Engadget / AOL UK are not held liable to honor warranties or customer service.

  • The full list of rules, in all its legalese glory, can be found here.

  • Entries can be submitted until August 1, 2012 at 10:59AM GMT. Good luck!
