Lookout Mobile Security‘s research has found that 63% of people just can not keep up with mobile technology. In a study group of more than 2000 people, one in three of them depend on someone who has a great deal of knowledge in the field. And of those that depend on a “Tech Hero,” 75% will turn to them for advice on what smartphone or tablet to purchase. These mobile tech-savy individuals may have accounted for $2.8 billion in the third quarter of 2013.
To reward these “Tech Heroes,” Lookout is holding a contest on Facebook. All you have to do is head over to their page and nominate your go-to for mobile technology. From there, nominees receive votes and become eligible to win prizes. The grand prize winner will be announced on January 7, 2014 and split $2,000 with their nominator. Leading up to that date, nominees will be randomly selected as winners for a few different devices. The four weeks prior will feature two Nexus 7 tablets, two Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watches, and two Samsung smart TVs.
