Nokia is having a party and you're invited. Yes, even you nonbloggy, unTwittered types. Because technology is a part of everyone's life and we're all striving to balance our cool new communication capabilities, or virtual lives, with, well, our real lives.
Nokia is hosting Julie Morgenstern, New York Times bestselling author, time management and organization expert for a special event including drinks, hors d'oeuvres, conversation and demonstrations to learn how technology and other tools can help you balance your work and play activities so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Attendees will have the chance to win a Nokia E71 smartphone! (est. value $489.00)
Nokia Flagship Store
543 North Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611
Thursday, October 23, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
If you're a suburbanite like me wondering about parking and related expenses, they are working on it. And if you're busy, don't have a sitter or just too darn lazy to leave the comfort of your home, no worries.
I'm giving away a Nokia E71 right here!
Nokai says: Nokia E71 is an amazing experience for those who want constant access to their email but still have that work-life balance. A ‘Dual Mode’ button allows for the device to have two home screens – one for work and one for play. Customize each with separate email accounts, calendars, active standby applications and more. With a QWERTY keyboard, WLAN accessibility, GPS, a 3.2MP camera and productivity applications such as Microsoft QuickOffice and Adobe Acrobat Reader, this device is perfect for both work and play!
This is my cell phone on the left. Yeah, the dumbphone held together with duct tape.
THAT ONE, on the right, the sleek, snazzy, smartphone could be yours. And all for a comment.
Enter to win now through Wednesday, midnight CST!

You can boost your chances of winning by gaining extra entries for subscribing to this blog's feed, favoriting it on Technorati (am I a whore?), or by writing and linking to this contest on your own blog (one extra entry per activity).
The fine print: this contest runs through Wednesday, October 23 at midnight CST. It's open to US residents only. The sponsor will send out the product and is not responsible for knowing whether this phone is compatible with your current plan, cell phone service provider or related contracts. Winner's name will be picked out of a hat or some other old-fashioned and possibly half-assed manner. I am not being paid or otherwise compensated for running this contest nor do I have a vested interest in who wins. For example, if you support Barack Obama for president, that's awesome. But if a fan of the other guy wins the phone, so be it.
Look for my Lands' End fleece giveaway later this week!
