The Android Police giveaway fever continues, but this time we've stepped things up with a triple header. Once again, we've teamed up with NVIDIA to give away three Motorola Photon 4Gs. Why? Because NVIDIA and Tegra Zone are awesome.

The Prizes

As I myself have discovered in the past few weeks, the Photon is a great phone that packs some serious power under the hood:

  • Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) + NinjaBlur UI
  • 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 (dual core) CPU
  • 1 GB DDR2 RAM
  • 4.3" qHD (960 x 540) display
  • CDMA and GSM bands
  • 4G (WiMax)
  • 8MP camera with dual LED flash, 720p video capture in the rear, VGA front-facing camera
  • 16GB memory + microSD slot
  • HDMI Mirroring
  • Kickstand
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi

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 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.
