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:

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:

  • Dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 T20 processor
  • 10.1" WXGA 1280x800 TFT (PLS) screen
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB on-board storage
  • Bluetooth
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • 7000 mAh battery
  • 3MP rear camera with LED flash and 720p video recording
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • video codecs: 720p/1080p Mpeg4, H.264, H.263, H263Sorenson, Divx/XviD, VC-1, WMV7/8
  • audio codecs: MP3, OGG, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR-, NB, AMR-WB, WMA, WAV, MID, AC3, IMY, AAC(Mono), AMR_NB
  • proprietary 30-pin connector
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • dimensions: 175.3 x 256.7 x 8.6 mm (for comparison, the XOOM is 170 x 250 x 13 mm)
  • weight: 565 grams (for comparison, the XOOM is 730 grams)
  • the tablet has none of these: SD (MicroSD, SD), HDMI, USB (MicroUSB, MiniUSB, full-size USB), SIM slot
  • optional docks (sold separately): vehicle, keyboard, desktop

  • Abhinav

    fingers crossed once again :D

  • Chad Garrett

    No purchase necessary laws in the US? If you want me to perform your marketing work for you in order to be entered, then I'd be buying my entry with my labor.

    So maybe nobody's made that lawsuit yet, but it's coming, and you'd better know that you're in the wrong here.

    • David Ruddock

      Incorrect.

      Labor as consideration constituting a lottery under promotion law (written by the FCC) has generally been disfavored by most US jurisdictions, and when it has been favored, only at times when "substantial time or effort" must be expended to enter the contest.

      A re-Tweet plus a personal comment takes, maybe, 30 seconds. A G+ comment and share? Maybe a minute.

      It's an interesting legal issue, but what we're doing here is well-within the bounds of what the law has historically allowed. If the law changes, we'll change our contests with it - but such a change is exceedingly unlikely.

  • James M

    Good luck everyone this is an awesome tablet, got a chance to play with one a few days ago. This is great what android police are doing for a chance at a free tablet pc

    "This contest is now over. We are in the process of sorting through everything and selecting winners. Please check back soon."
    winnerS? so more than one person win??;)

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

      Sorry, I used the same generic message I always use - there will only be one winner.

  • Tejas

    Wow this is great..I WANT ONE

  • bobertCRO

    may the lucky one get it :)

  • Senior franco

    I have entered most of these comps but i just decided too reread the rules and just noticed you have too put your first and last name.
    Looks like i never had a chance of winning since i only ever put my first name in.

    On the form too fill out it just says name so i didnt think for a minute it ment whole name.Of course i figured after the full name would be required but not for the input form.

    damn and blast i should read better i guess.

    Or is it still allowed since i got a screen name for facebook anyway and would of expected to get asked for full name at the end.?

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

      I wouldn't worry about that. We can always get your real name if Lady Luck picks your ticket.

      • Franco

        That"s good too know that im just unlucky and not a dimwit for not reading rules properly,lol

        Thanks for reply.

  • Shadowdragon

    Wow, the waiting is driving me nuts. Anybody else checking it a bunch of times a day?

    • bobertCRO

      you are not alone :)

  • Shadowdragon

    AAAAAAAAAH, I thought the update was the winner.... it was just swapping out gift cards......

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

      The winner has been posted as well. As for the gift card, I mistakenly put VISA instead of AMEX at first - apparently, you can't get VISA cards without providing a name, but you can with AMEX.
