Can you believe we and NVIDIA have already conducted this many giveaways? It seems like just yesterday we were giving away the Motorola XOOM, and...
Never mind; let's cut to the chase: this time around NVIDIA has been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway of not one, but two white 16GB ASUS Eee Pad Sliders powered by the Tegra 2 processor and fueled by a wide range of available games from the Tegra Zone.
The Slider, for those with less-than-ideal memories, is the keyboard-tablet hybrid we reviewed just a few weeks ago. It's not quite perfect - it is, after all, subject to Honeycomb's shortcomings - but it's still an excellent tablet, especially compared to its Android-based competition.
Here's the full spec list:
- 10.1-inch 16:10 WXGA (1280x800) LCD display
- 1.2MP webcam
- 5MP rear cam capable of recording 720p HD video
- 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
- Slightly skinned version of Android 3.2 (Honeycomb)
- 1GB DDR2 RAM
- 16/32GB internal storage
- 25Wh Li-Polymer battery (8hrs of battery life, according to ASUS)
- WiFi 802.11b/g/n
- USB 2.0, miniHDMI, and proprietary docking ports
- microSD card slot
Needless to say, that's a hell of a deal considering that all we're asking for is one measly tweet or Facebook "like." Speaking of which...
This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
Congratulations, guys (actually, guy and gal) - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
