Last Updated: January 23rd, 2012

Are you ready for another awesome giveaway? This may be our best one yet (but trust us - we've got some even better ones coming), and once again, it's open to a whole host of countries around the world (we've added a few more EU countries, so check the eligibility list). For your consideration, today we have 3 Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 bundles up for grabs, which include the Tegra-powered Galaxy Tab 8.9, Jambox wireless Bluetooth speaker, and $25 AMEX gift card. Once again, our pals at NVIDIA have put together an amazing prize package for our readers.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • Tim Dowker
  • Alex Grassi
  • Femi

Congratulations, guys (and gal?) - 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.

Update: Here's Tim with his goodies:


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 8.9):

The Prizes

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is Samsung's newest Tegra-powered tablet, in a manageable 8.9" form factor:


The Tab 8.9 features:

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • 8.9" TFT LCD display
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb w/ Samsung TouchWiz UX
  • 16GB internal storage
  • Front and rear facing cameras
  • 6100mAh battery

Next up is the Jambox, which every winner will receive with their Tab 8.9:


The pint-sized wireless speaker produces big sound in a small package. It weighs a mere 12 ounces (that's less than the Tab 8.9), supports Bluetooth audio streaming, charges via microUSB, and has up to ten hours of battery life on continuous playback. The Jambox is no toy, either - this little guy retails for around $200, so you know it's a pretty legit piece of audio kit.

Additionally, each of the three winners will receive a $25 AMEX gift card, so you can start making some Tegra Zone purchases to get the most out of your Tab 8.9 on day one.

How To Win

There are three methods, and each method counts as an entry.

Step 1
  • Add this account to at least one circle on Google+, then re-share this message with your Public circle by clicking Share.
