In order to celebrate today's launch of TegraZone.com, the updated Tegra Zone Android app, and the new and really awesome Tegra-optimized game called Sprinkle, for our 6th giant giveaway we've once again partnered with NVIDIA, but this time the main prize - a 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - is accompanied by a smashing bonus: the Tegra Zone power pack.
"What goes into this Pack?" you might ask, and I'll tell you. The Tegra Zone power pack consists of:
- a Samsung keyboard dock, which retails for about $80 - see our review
- a Jawbone JAMBOX bluetooth speaker, which retails for about $200
- a $25 AMEX gift card so you can load up your new Tab 10.1 with some apps right away
The winner of the giveaway will receive both the Tab 10.1 and the power pack, so I hope by now the "Supercharged" part of the title is starting to make a bit more sense.
Before we move on to the giveaway, I wanted to mention our awesome sponsor, NVIDIA, once again. If you own a Tegra-powered device, such as the Tab 10.1, XOOM, Iconia A500, Transformer, Atrix 4G, etc., you are going to want to check out NVIDIA's updated Tegra Zone Android app and the newly launched site - TegraZone.com. Both of them showcase games that are guaranteed to be polished and run well on your Tegra 2 devices - in fact, most of them are Tegra-optimized, so they'll run on the Tegra platform better than any other one.
Sprinkle, a beautiful creation of a Swedish dev team Mediocre, is one such Tegra-optimized game that was released earlier today - I highly recommend checking it out (after entering the giveaway, of course!) by using the widget below.
Finally, let's recap the specs of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the slimmest 10" Honeycomb Android tablet on the planet and my personal favorite. The model we are giving away is the 16GB Wi-Fi that retails at $499.99:
