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.

Asus-Eee-Pad-Slider-white-front ASUS-Eee-Pad-Slider-white-side-angle Asus-Eee-Pad-Slider-SL101-back

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...


The Steps

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!

    I already have one but I would gladly take another one.

  • Kyle

    Sweet Tablet I wouldn't mind winning this.

  • b00sted

    I hope i get in on this, never have luck with these things lol

  • http://About.me/DarknesSx DarknesSx

    Ok, done! and like always, in desperate hopes of winning,, :/

    (Don't judge countries from Google+, Twitter or Facebook accounts..
    I'm eligible as the rules say but the country i'm indicated i'm at in my social accounts is not... so, i'm eligible!!!)

    • Jennifer Fricke

      This Would be Me!

  • Marilyn

    well this is a sexy little beast

    • Gman

      I'll follow this "sexy little beast" anywhere she'd just to SLIDE my hands all over those silky smooth HOTKEYS!

  • NYC_Dude

    I never win these things and besides too many hoops just to enter. Why not just do a raffle?

    • http://twitter.com/kway4204 Kyle Way

      Too many hoops just to enter? Are you serious? All you have to do is 1 of the 3 options to enter and then post a URL in a form.

      I think these are great and I am going to keep trying until I win one! Thanks NVIDIA Tegra and Android Police! You Rock!

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/jaroslav-stekl/ Jaroslav Stekl

      "I never win these things"

      That's probably because we already have over 700 entrants, despite the fact that the contest has only been live for less than 3 hours.

      "too many hoops just to enter."

      Could you be more specific? All you have to do is fill out a form and tweet out a practically pre-written message, or "like" our Facebook page, or share a post on Google+. I fail to see how either of those steps are "hoops" you have to jump through.

      "Why not just do a raffle?"

      This practically is a raffle: think of the tweet, Facebook like, or Google+ post as your ticket, and the form as the submission hat. As mentioned in the post, the winners are chosen randomly... just like a raffle.
