It’s October and Seidio has some brand new cases they’d like to give away to some lucky iPhone 5-owning Pocketables readers. Up for grabs this time around is the Seidio ACTIVE for the iPhone 5, with or without kickstand.

The Seidio ACTIVE is a light shock-absorbing case with interlocking layers that provides a reasonable level of scratch and drop protection while still remaining light and not sticking to every piece of pocket lint. It comes in at 2.2 mm thick and (if the kickstand model is chosen) features a pop-out kickstand to prop your phone up while watching movies.

The case includes an exoskeleton which provide some extra protection at the corners to ensure that the places your phone’s most likely to get damaged in a drop have extra protection.

There are two ways to enter the contest.

  1. Leave a comment below, telling us something you love about your iPhone 5. This is your first entry.
  2. Visit this thread in our forums, and tell us about one of your favorite apps on your iPhone 5. Feel free to link to that app, or to one that you’ve created yourself. This is your second entry.

If you haven’t registered yet in our forums, you can sign up in under a minute. (Please contact us if you have trouble registering. Some new users are being incorrectly identified as spammers, but we can still get you registered right away if that happens to you.)

You can choose to just leave a comment here, or to just post in our forums – or you can do both to double your chances of winning. You can also enter twice per day, using each of the above methods. Ten winners will be chosen in all, hand picked by me – in other words, higher quality comments or forum posts will potentially be rewarded. Make sure you leave a valid email address when commenting, so we can contact you in case you win. I will announce the winners on October 31.

The Seidio ACTIVE with Metal Kickstand retails for $34.95 direct from Seidio, and you can expect a full review next week. Good luck!

Thanks to Seidio for sponsoring this giveaway!
