Nokia giving away Lumia 820 phones with a 3D printed case

In January, Nokia announced that it was giving out an SDK that would allow anyone with access to a 3D printer a way to make their own customized Lumia 820 back cover. Of course, most of us don't have access to such a machine. Today, Nokia is launching a contest where a few lucky folks will be able to get their own personalized Lumiia 820 3D printed case.

The Nokia blog has the details on the contest which has the smartphone maker partnering with the MakerBot 3D printing company. MakerBot has two of its Replicator 2 Desktop 3D printers at Nokia booth this week at the Mobile World Congress trade show. Nokia states:

For a chance to win your very own personalised 3D printed case, all you have to do is tweet @Nokia_Connects using the hashtag #Lumia820 – something fun, entertaining, witty. Every day we will pick a few tweets that have used the hashtag and print a personalised Lumia 820 case for them.

Oh, and one more thing: Nokia is also giving out a new Lumia 820 to those folks that win the contest along with the case. People who actually show up at the Nokia booth with their own Lumia 820 can get a chance to win a custom patterned case too.

I've got to come back to thank you for posting this article, John; I've won one of them! The only catch is I have to hold up the promise I made on Twitter, and that is to smash my current phone, an iPhone 3GS, using one of my old phones, a Nokia 3510.

Sorry, I don't really understand how to enter the competition. Can someone explain it. Thank you! Basically what are the words I need to tweet or re-tweet?

says it in the op....

Good deal. Free phone/case for tweeting a comment. If I tweeted, I would try to get one.

And to the post above me, the OP and source link clearly states free phone and case. So not sure what your problem is.
