Last Updated: January 12th, 2012

In our first giveaway of the day (there will be another one a bit later, stay tuned), we're handing out the last of our holiday goodies provided by our pals at NVIDIA. Two lucky winners will be selected, one will get the unique ASUS Eee Pad Slider tablet, and another will receive the new Acer Iconia A100. Both winners will also get a Jambox portable speaker and a $25 AMEX gift card. This is a "lightning giveaway," so you'll have until midnight tomorrow (December 24th) to enter.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • Lucas Borntreger
  • Jeff Cole

Congratulations, guys - 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: And here's Lucas with his prizes and some awesome wall art!


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):

Zen Pinball also has some awesome new tables to try out, featuring Marvel comic characters like Wolverine, the Fantastic Four, and Captain America (the aforementioned three are on sale for $0.99 each until December 30th, as well):


The Prizes

First up is the ASUS Eee Pad Slider, the only tablet with a built-in slide-out keyboard:


The Eee Pad Slider features:

  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 1.0GHz dual-core CPU for excellent multitasking & HD video playback
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS (4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable)
  • Full QWERTY slide-out keyboard
  • 10.1" IPS LCD display with Gorilla Glass
  • USB port, MicroSD Card Reader, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, and one year unlimited ASUS WebStorage
  • Supreme SRS Sound with max bass response

Next up is the Acer Iconia A100, a smaller 7" device.


The Iconia A100 features:

  • 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM / 8GB internal storage
  • 7" LCD display
  • microHDMI and microUSB ports
  • microSD card slot
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system

Next up is the Jambox, which both winners will receive:


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

How To Win

At the bottom of this post, in the comments section, tell us which Tegra Zone game is your favorite. Check them out here. (Be sure to PUT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE EMAIL FIELD BELOW THE NAME FIELD - we will use it to contact the winners.)

That's it.

    Sprinkle. It such a play on words. Its a small dude, using this long hose, and sprinkling on the fires. Beyond that, lets look at the game. Its a great, dynamics game, the visuals are smooth, colors pop, and the levels of play are balances. Out of all the tegra games, this brings many hours of fun and continued entertainment.
