Last Updated: February 15th, 2012

Everyone loves free stuff. Hopefully, everyone loves (at at least somewhat likes) their valentine. Ergo, everyone loves to get free stuff for their valentine - especially if it's super-sick Android gear, right? If you answered yes to those questions, this giveaway is for you.

This one is going to work a little bit differently than previous giveaways. In fact, you won't be winning anything at all, per se. In honor of Valentine's day, love, and Cupid himself, this one is for your significant other/mate/lover/whatever you want to call them. So, you, the entrant, only get to win this one vicariously through your loved one. That's still fun though, and it shows that you care. Awwww.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random, who will each get a 101 G9 tablet and a 35 Home Connect:
  • Joyce K
  • Dustin Graves

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.


The Prizes

We're giving away two sets of the following prizes, so two different winners will receive both items.

The good folks at ARCHOS love you almost as much as you love your valentine, so they've offered up a couple of killer little gadgets to make your V-Day festivities brighter:

ARCHOS 101 G9 1.5GHz 250GB

archos-101-g9bquille

We first heard about the 101 G9 back in September of '11, and varying models have been available since shortly after that. However, the model that we're giving away has yet to even hit the Market - it's the ever elusive G9 with a 1.5GHz OMAP and 250GB hard drive. You read that right - two-hundred-fifty geebees. Here's a closer look at what the 101 G9 has to offer:

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x 800 display
  • 1.5GHz TI OMAP processor
  • 250GB of storage space
  • Built-in kickstand
  • Android 3.2

Archos 35 Home Connect

archos-35-home-connect

Announced back in June of '11, the 35 Home Connect is an Android-based web radio with long battery life, Wi-Fi, two HD speakers, a 3.5-inch display, 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 1GHz single-core processor, and Froyo. It's designed with streaming media in mind, but it also includes a front-facing camera for video chatting (ARCHOS also recommends using this feature for a baby monitor, which could come in handy nine months down the road if you surprise your valentine with this duo).

How to Win

All of the entry requirements can be found bit hitting the Rafflecopter widget below.

That's it! The contest ends at 12:01 AM (Midnight) EST on February 14, 2012, after which the winners will be randomly selected.

This giveaway is global.

Good luck!
