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).

This contest is now over. Here is our winner, selected at random:
  • Soukthachone Vilaysack

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.


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.

The Prize

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.

    • Ian

      James, it probably means you have already 'liked' the page. Scroll right down to the bottom and you may see a small 'Unlike' button somewhere at the bottom, that will indicate that you already like it.

      Of course you already like AP!

        • http://sketaful.se Sketaful

          I can almost surely promise you that my x-mas and the last 2 month before has sucked more....

        • Alex

          Oh? Well what makes it so terrible?

  • http://hi.im/leonardtj Leonardtj

    I was planning on buying on after x-mas but my wife has gotten sick (on top of being pregnant and has missed over a week of work) so my tablet fund is going towards bills now. I hope i still win this cause if not no tablet for me.

    • Alex

      Congratulations on the baby, and I hope your wife of gets better soon. I don't have a tablet fund either.
      What makes my year so bad is that my father (and I know that you're not supposed to have a "favorite parent" but I was fond of him) had lost his job, and because of financial problems, he had to move to another country, the Philippines, where the US dollar is worth more. I didn't get to spend x-mas with him because he left on the 6th. At least I know he is alive and well, but if he gets sick over there, the hospitals aren't the greatest and he will most likely die.

  • Alex

    Aww I didn't win. Oh well, I never do. Congrads... That guy. Huh, he has a pretty long name haha

    Lucky bastard

  • Soukthachone

    It's like christmas just started. THANK YOU.
