iLounge 2010 Buyers’ Guide Contest: Design the Apple Tablet – Closed for Judging

How can you win? Design the Apple Tablet! We want to see your creative and artistic talent!

Some of the details are believed to be known here, but you’re not bound to follow them. Your image may be wholly original or based in part on iLounge photos of the iPhone or iPod touch, however, originality is strongly encouraged, and no use of others’ photos or previous contest entries is permitted. Please do not overlap text on top of the image of the Tablet. iLounge’s editors will pick our three favorite concepts from the pool of valid entries. You must submit your name, e-mail address, and location (city/state/country) with your art in order to qualify.

First runner up Ultimate Ears Custom UE 4 Pros (MSRP $399)
Second runner up Ultimate Ears 700 (MSRP $230)

For this contest, we will be selecting winners based on either the plausibility or the cool factor of their designs, and unlike some previous contests, we are not looking for funny entries. Use realistic or smart design ideas to inspire your work and you’ll have the best shot at winning a prize.
