Hiya <my email address>! Are you a real person? I hope so because you have been selected as a tester for iPad 2 in whatever color of your choice! You are most likely wondering if this is a scheme and the answer is NO! However, in exchange, I would value beneficial criticism from you after using it for a while. Go ahead and enter your email below within 24 hours to verify you are real or you will be automatically disqualified. Please do not pass the link to anyone else as I only have 1 more iPad 2 left. Appreciate it!
