Our first giant giveaway was a huge success, with lots of excited entries received from many countries around the world in the 2 weeks it was running. In the end, one lucky winner - Keef from the UK - walked away with a free XOOM Wi-Fi, excited beyond belief. While we could only pick one winner for that giveaway, I promised that more would be coming, one more awesome than the other.

Today, I'm glad to announce our 2nd giant giveaway, also sponsored by NVIDIA, with the grand prize of the T-Mobile LG G-Slate 3D tablet with a street price of $750-800 (Amazon $800, T-Mobile $750). This tablet packs even more features than the XOOM and has 3G/4G connectivity built-in.

This G-Slate features:

  • a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor
  • a 3D-capable 8.9" wide-screen
  • 32 GB of space
  • 1GB of DDR2 RAM
  • dual 5MP cameras capable of taking 3D and HD pictures and video (1080P)
  • a 2MP front-facing camera
  • a 6400 mAh battery
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • HDMI out
  • It runs on the 850/1800/1900 MHz and 900/1700/2100 MHz GSM (Tri-Band/Tri-Mode) frequencies and transmits data using HSPA+21 (what T-Mobile calls 4G)
  • and, of course, Android 3.0 "Honeycomb"

Note: This prize does NOT come with a data plan of any sort - if you want to hook it up to T-Mobile, it is your responsibility; otherwise, feel free to use its Wi-Fi capabilities.

More great prizes are coming up shortly, so be sure to keep following Android Police on Twitter, Facebook, and RSS.

Giveaway

And here is the winner (picked at random):

How To Win

Entering the giveaway is really simple.

Complete either one of these to be eligible or both to double your chances of winning.

  • Follow @AndroidPolice on Twitter, then tweet out a message that starts with the following phrase and ends with something original you can think of to spice it up - it could be anything mentioning the G-Slate, LG, NVIDIA, Android Police, Tegra 2, etc. Just don't forget you only have 140 characters, so make them count:

NVIDIA and @AndroidPolice are giving away a free LG G-Slate 3D Honeycomb tablet http://bit.ly/ap-gsl. <PUT YOUR OWN MESSAGE HERE>

OR

  • Like/fan the AndroidPolice fan page on Facebook, then Like the entry for this article and leave a comment on that entry about the G-Slate, LG, NVIDIA, Android Police, Android, Tegra 2, or why you should be the one to win. Be creative :-]

That's it - there are no other steps this time around. Very easy, just like last time.

Terms

The giveaway starts immediately and runs until June 3rd, 11:59PM PST.

It is open to residents of the countries specified in the detailed terms and conditions below (not just U.S. - check the list to see if your country is there). Note: After careful consideration, we've added Malaysia, India, and South Africa to the list of eligible countries and removed Argentina (due to extremely high import duties).

The winner will be selected randomly from the pool of entrants, announced here, and notified via twitter, Facebook, or email.

1 entry per person for each method is allowed (1 for Facebook and 1 for Twitter). Entering more than once on either social site will not increase your chances.

NVIDIA and Android Police will ship the prize to the winner.

See the "Official Rules" below for the exact terms of the contest and eligibility requirements.

International entrants: Please ensure your country is listed in "1. Eligibility" of the Official Rules, and particularly remember that you will be responsible for any and all import duties, fees, taxes, or other costs (excluding the shipping carrier charge) associated with importing the device into your country, as indicated in "4. Prizes"

Good luck, everyone!

    Last one was open to South Africa. Why not this one??? Booohooooo!

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      The last one wasn't open to South Africa either. The countries are the same, plus Malaysia, South Africa, and India and minus Argentina.

    • h3llb3nd4

      no South Africa in both competitions...Feeling Blue as always...T.T

      • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

        @h3llb3nd4, after careful consideration, we decided to add South Africa to the list.

        • James Evans

          Since you were good enough to add South Africa, how about including Botswana as well? We're right next door and are part of the same customs union. Shipping would be pretty much the same, too.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      After careful consideration, we decided to add South Africa to the list.

  • Kareem

    Counting out the UK!

    Nice giveaway either way. Good luck to all.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Huh? The United Kingdom is included in the eligibility list. In fact, the XOOM winner was from the UK!

    • http://royblumenthal.com/portfolio Roy Blumenthal

      Artem... You're the dude! Thank you so much for adding South Africa! What a gentleman!

  • Carlos

    Why not Brazil???

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Brazil and most countries that are not included were mentioned by David in the comments for the XOOM post. http://www.androidpolice.com/2011/04/22/giant-worldwide-giveaway-win-a-free-motorola-xoom-wi-fi-for-doing-close-to-nothing/

    • David Ruddock

      Carlos,

      Brazil charges upwards of 80% on importation of these kinds of goods. That means if a person from Brazil (eg, you) were to win, you would have to pay around $600USD for your prize. It's hard to call it a prize when the winner would be forced to pay such an exorbitant sum.

      • Someone

        wow. that's insane. However, Brazil does have a lot of yummie booty... so... it evens out.

        • josh

          Bahahaha yes. Yes it does.

        • Greg

          LMAO this is an awesome post!!!

  • sergiu

  • ErOR

    Twitter and Facebook, that's doing a lot more then nothing for someone who doesn't have either...

    • http://royblumenthal.com/portfolio Roy Blumenthal

      Yeah! And what about people who don't have computers or smartphones or the internet??? Surely you should change the rules so the Amish can also win!

  • http://fc1032.blogspot.com Brian

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Sounds fine, as long as you provide a U.S. address for shipping. She will then be responsible for any taxes and import duties to get it to you.

  • Keith

    Thanks for placing Malaysia on the Android world map Artem (I know this isn't how you pronounce your name though :P).

    GO TEAM ANDROID! =)

    It is a simple competition that anyone can win and will im sure help the winner out in some way.
    Well done guys for another comp so soon after the last one and well deserved pat on the back for NVIDIA too for their contribution towards the comp.

  • Klemen

    Why is Slovenia not in the list? You have all the countries surrounding us and we are in the EU so i dont think the customs or any laws could be a problem.

  • https://www.facebook.com/randy.khoo randy khoo

    All of us in Malaysia rejoice.
    About time we win something! lol

  • Sul

    as usual no Saudi Arabia T>T

    • David Ruddock

      There is very little English-language material available regarding gaming/promotional law in Arab-speaking countries - we can't offer the contest in a particular region without investigating the law of said region.

  • Juan

    Crap. I'm from Argentina :(

  • Mike

    Why isn't the dark side of the moon on the list??

    • Jox

      Because of the outrageous shipping costs, duh. :P

    give us a chance too :)

    @AndroidPolice Thanks for giving Malaysia a chance to win the G Slate. I'm into Android development so hopefully I have a chance to win this tablet. =)

  • Stephen

    How do "competition laws" make it illegal in Victoria (Australia)? I've never seen an exclusion for Victoria ever. Shame we can't enter if that's the case.
