    I know the odds are slim, but I keep hoping I'll get lucky.

    Android Police really has the best contests this holiday season, and I don't just say that to get on their good side *wink, wink*.

    Seriously, I'd love to win any one of these fine devices. The GNexus, I'd probably sell or auction off, The Galaxy S II or Exhibit II I might give to my Mom to replace her aging "dumb-phone", and the AT&T Captivate Glide I'd throw away (kidding!) but the Galaxy Tab, I'd definitely keep for myself. :D

    I love your news, your site and even the contests but in my humble opinion you are asking us to violate Google+ TOS by spamming the public circle. Please adjust your entry rules for G+ to be add you and sponsor to any circle and leave the Public circle spamming out. eg. your facebook rule

  • Rich

    I realize that you have marketing to do and that is what theses giveaways are all about. However it would be nice, once in a while or even hidden in the rules, a way to enter without all the BS social networking crap.

    Some of us can't stand "social networking" and therefore don't use it.

  • P Tran

    Another giveaway? Are you guys rich or something?
