We’re teaming up with Verizon Wireless to give away a brand new HTC 10 Android smartphone! This is HTC’s latest flagship smartphone and it’s a nice one – I know because I’ve been working on a review of this phone and plan to post it soon. It has a premium look and feel with some nice features under the hood. Entering the contest is easy, just take a selfie or a picture anywhere that you can get a Verizon signal and tweet it with the hashtag #MyVZSelfie. Then come back here and add a link to your picture. Click through to read all the details and rules. Good luck!
