TiPb Birthday Bash: And the Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G Winner is...

Earlier this month, we celebrated TiPb's Birthday Bash, and as a giant thanks to you, our members, we spent nearly a week giving away iPhone accessories, promo codes for some of our favorite apps, and iTunes gift cards. We'll be highlighting some of the winners, runners-up, and otherwise awesome entrants this weekend, but for right now I think we'll just go ahead and announce the winner of our biggest grand-prize so far:

  • A factory unlocked 8GB iPhone 3G in your choice of 35 different color options courtesy of the awesome folks at ColorWare.

That's right. One of you is about to get your iPhone, your way. And we'll tell you who... after the break!

Drum roll please....

Congratulations to -- PirateNinja!

We hope you enjoy your new, unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G -- and for those of you who didn't win, be sure to check out ColorWare's services as well, pimping your iPhone has never been so fun or so easy, and if you want to maximize your geek-bling cred, check out their Beats by Dr. Dre.
