NVIDIA Tegra Zone

NVIDIA's Tegra Zone is the only Tegra device game store for Android, and you'll find some of the most awesome games available for Android there, like Shadowgun, or the awesome new free pinball game Zen Pinball THD. You can get NVIDIA's Tegra Zone app on the Android market, available for all Tegra-powered devices (like the Galaxy Tab 10.1):

The Prizes

The Sony Tablet S is Sony's first full-on Android tablet, featuring an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 16GB of storage (with an SD card slot for even more space), 9.4" LCD display, and a unique curved design.

Sony-S1-Tablet-Specifications

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, which you probably know already, is also packing a Tegra 2 processor, 16GB of storage, a 10.1" LCD display, and a keyboard dock accessory that contains an additional battery to ensure your Transformer is never without enough juice to get the job done - it's truly the world's most versatile tablet.

ASUS_EeePadTransformer_4

The keyboard dock is normally sold separately, but it's probably the best part of the tablet, so NVIDIA and Android Police weren't about to give you an incomplete Transformer. As noted earlier, every winner will also received a $25 AMEX gift card.
