Win An Amazon Kindle and Zombie Book (Virgin Trains’ ‘Don’t Go Zombie’ Competition)Written by Simon Barker on October 7, 2010 · Filed under Competitions, Tech
Here on Zath we recently wrote about Virgin Trains’ latest promotion called ‘Don’t Go Zombie’ which featured an innovative zombie game that was based off Google Street View in which you could run go around your local streets ticketing the zombies to save them and get them onto a Virgin Train. In fact, if you go zombie hunting around York, you may even find our very own Zath Zombie!
Well here at Zath we’ve now teamed up with Virgin Trains to help you prepare for the zombie apocalypse by offering up one of the new Amazon Kindle (Wifi) ebook readers along with a copy of what will be a very useful book; Zompoc: How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse – These are useful things to have after all, when you’re dealing with zombies, you want to pack light, so being able to carry your book collection around with you on one light device rather than deal with the weight and bulk of all those paper and hardbacks will be a definite advantage!
Amazon has stuck with their new-found love for the ‘graphite’ coloured chassis in addition to a white model, whilst making the entire Amazon Kindle 3 device 21 percent smaller than its predecessor. In addition to that it’s 15 percent lighter, so all in all it is a much more portable, and more comfortable device for reading books.
They have also maintained their hugely popular 6-inch, e-ink screen, which is widely regarded as one of, if not the best display on an e-reader. However, Amazon has promised a 20 percent increase in the refresh rate on the latest display, which can’t be bad at all.
Much like our previous Magic Wand Remote Control competition, to stand a chance of winning this prize, entering couldn’t be any simpler…
