And so it begins - Android Police's First Annual Mega-Holiday Giveaway Series. For the next ten days, you'll have chances to win all sorts of awesome Android phones, tablets, and other goodies. (As a note to our international readers, this first contest features prizes that don't work outside the US, but don't worry, we have some more stuff coming for you later today.)

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:

Congratulations, guys - all of 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.

First up on the list? Just five HTC phones on the Sprint network - 4 EVO Design 4Gs and one EVO 3D are up for grabs, courtesy of our awesome friends over at RadioShack.


Even in the event you do win one of these great phones we've got up for grabs, you might want to check out RadioShack this holiday season regardless - they've got a whole bunch of phones you can get free today on new 2-year agreements on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon as part of their holiday free phone sale. The Samsung Stratosphere, HTC Inspire 4G, and more.

The Prizes

What's up for grabs? You stand to win either an HTC EVO Design 4G (one of four), or the grand prize, the critically-lauded EVO 3D. The EVO Design 4G is the latest in HTC's line of EVO smartphones, sporting a 4" LCD display and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread on Sprint's 4G WiMAX network.


The grand prize in this kickoff event, though, is the EVO 3D. The EVO 3D has a glasses-free 3D display, stereoscopic cameras for 3D photos and video, all powered by a beefy 1.2GHz dual-core processor to handle all the extreme tasks you can throw at it. Of course, it's also running on Sprint's 4G network to keep your extreme data thirst quenched. Oh, and did we mention it's the RadioShack-exclusive white version?

    U.S. only...shoot.

    • sonnyjjchiba

      I'm new to the scene here, and I'm just wondering...will all the contests' entries require the use of social networks like Facebook or Twitter? 'Cause I'm not on any of those.

      • David Ruddock

        No, some will be comment-based. However, the largest contests will use social networks. Signing up for these networks is easy, especially Twitter and Google+ (if you have Gmail), you don't even need to be active on them - you just need an account.

        • sonnyjjchiba

          Cool, thanks. I'll definitely be signing up for Google+ or Twitter just to enter any big contests if they're open to non-U.S. residents.

  • Darius

    "It is open to all residents of the countries specified in the detailed terms and conditions below"

    Namely "USA Only" ¬¬

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

      Sprint = U.S. carrier.

      • Darius

        Any chance for international prizes later?

  • pepperonijack

    Even if today is U.S. only, as a non-U.S. resident I'd really like to thank you guys for the consideration for your international readership. I'll patiently wait for tomorrow. (Though if the Galaxy Nexus giveaway is for a Verizon Nexus, ... )

  • Daniel

    I never win anything on a contest or giveaway but I won't give up I just really wish I could get an Evo Design because of it's international capabilities.. Thanks for the giveaways Android Police!!

    • mrazekan

      I'm with you! I can't believe devs and the public have looked past this phone. I travel enough to justify a phone capable of taking an international SIM card. The EVO Design and the MoPho are the only two Sprint superphones capable of doing so. Since I don't like the MoPho's screen or ID...I WANT ONE!
