Last Updated: December 20th, 2011

A few days ago, we received a mystery package from the good folks at RadioShack. Inside the package were three phones - the Samsung Stratosphere on Verizon, HTC EVO Design 4G on Sprint, and Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T. Since these phones are ours to do with what we please, we've decided to do what we always do when we end up with extra goodies: give them away.


Since we have three phones to hand out, we're going to make each contest quick and dirty. Each one will last for one day, and one day only.

RadioShack's Pre-Black Friday Sale

Before we get into the giveaway details, we want to give a shoutout to the guys at RadioShack. They have an awesome pre-Black Friday sale currently going with over twenty-five phone from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon all going for absolutely free. Here is a shortlist of some of the deals that you can catch:

Keep in mind that this deal ends today, so if you're looking to score a new phone for nothing, you better hurry!

What You Get


We've already given away the first two of three devices, the Samsung Stratosphere and Samsung Infuse 4G, which leaves only one - the HTC EVO Design 4G on Sprint. This is the newest of the three phones, with specs on the higher end of mid-range devices:

  • 4-inch 540x960 Super LCD display
  • 1.2GHz Snapdragon Processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 4GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • Android 2.3.x with Sense

How To Win

This contest is now over. Here is our winner, selected at random:
  • Eric Simms

Congratulations - you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

Update: Here's Eric's sister with the phone:


Just like the two previous Turkey Day Giveaways, you need but answer one question to enter:

If you could choose any one Android device to receive as a gift this holiday season, what would it be?

You have until 12:00PM PT Tomorrow, November 24th (Thanksgiving Day) to get your entry in. At that time, we'll randomly pick a winner.

Since this is a Sprint phone, the contest is for US Residents only.

Good luck!
