Well, we started today off right by offering our US readers a Galaxy Nexus, but we figured it's only fair to bring our international readers into the mix for another awesome giveaway. Today, we're giving away one ASUS Transformer Prime 32GB Wi-Fi tablet to one lucky person, courtesy of Beansoft, the developers of the extremely popular third-party keyboard app Thumb Keyboard, along with a pair of Klipsch S4A headphones provided by Klipsch (read our review here).

Congratulations, you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
Thumb Keyboard For Phones And Tablets
Thumb Keyboard is great. We've covered it it many a time. It's the single most natural typing experience you can put on the display of a tablet (and it's pretty great on phones, too), and we've yet to find a better third-party keyboard for sheer ease of use.
If you've not heard of Thumb Keyboard, try it out. 15 minutes is ample time to download and play with it in the event you want a refund, but we have a feeling you won't. It also has tons of customization options - so you can get your keyboard just right in terms of size and spacing of keys.
You've heard of the ASUS Transformer Prime. You might have even read our review of it. In that case, you know it's pretty awesome, and packing the brand-new NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, making it the first quad-core tablet.
It's lighter, faster, and just generally better than the original Transformer, which was already a pretty great tablet in its own right. Here's a few specs:
- NVIDIA 1.3GHz Tegra 3 Processor with 12-core GeForce GPU
- 10.1" LCD Super IPS+ display (1280x800) with Gorilla Glass
- 1GB RAM / 32GB internal storage
- Android 3.2 Honeycomb (ICS 4.0 upgrade coming)
- microSD slot
- microHDMI port
- 8MP rear / 1.2MP front cameras
- Weight: 537g
- Thickness: 10.4mm
The winner will have their choice of either Amethyst Gray or Champagne colors.
The lucky winner will also receive a pair of Klipsch S4A headphones, the first Klipsch headphones designed specifically for Android devices.
In combination with the Klipsch Control app, these headphones are among the best I've used. The warm, bright sound and resonating bass Klipsch is known for in its big, floorstanding speakers comes to life on a tiny scale with the S4A headphones. Check out our review of them, as well.
