Last Updated: April 3rd, 2012

So, we all know today marks the launch of a certain other popular tablet. But Android Police and NVIDIA are here to give you a chance to win the only cutting-edge tablet with a fully-functioning, battery-packing keyboard dock that allows you to transform your device into an Android-powered laptop, and rocks a quad-core processor (technically, 5 cores!) with a twelve-core GPU. Of course, we're talking about the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • Andrew Leatherbarrow
  • Chris (arcon)

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: Here's Andrew and his new baby:


The Prize

And we're not giving away just any Transformer Primes - no, no - we're offering up two of the fully loaded, Amethyst Gray 64GB models complete with keyboard docks to keep you juiced up and productive at all times.


Here's the spec breakdown:

  • NVIDIA 1.3GHz Tegra 3 Processor with 12-core GeForce GPU
  • 10.1" LCD Super IPS+ display (1280x800) with Gorilla Glass
  • 1GB RAM / 64GB internal storage
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (via OTA upgrade) 
  • microSD slot
  • microHDMI port
  • USB port (keyboard dock)
  • SD card slot (keyboard dock)
  • 6600mAh secondary battery inside keyboard dock
  • 8MP rear / 1.2MP front cameras
  • Weight: 537g (without dock)
  • Thickness: 10.4mm (without dock)

NVIDIA Tegra 3 And TegraZone

Of course, productivity is only half the equation here. The Transformer Prime's Tegra 3 '4+1' (four regular cores, one power-sipping efficiency core) processor is a gaming powerhouse, and even has a performance setting toggle allowing you to get the very most of your tablet in every situation. And finding the newest high-end titles for your Transformer Prime won't mean meandering through an endless list. NVIDIA's TegraZone (app preinstalled on the Prime) gives you access to specially Tegra-optimized versions of popular and visually stunning Android games like Shadowgun or Sprinkle.


How To Win

Entering is simple - go to our post on upcoming Tegra 3 games (here), browse around, watch a few trailers, and pick your favorite upcoming TegraZone title from those 5 listed. Then, leave a comment on this post (be sure to include your email in the appropriate comment field!) with the title of the game you chose, along with a quick sentence or two explaining why you chose it. That's it.

The contest will run from now until March 20th at 11:59PM PST, after which the two winners will be selected at random.

Good luck!

    Has got to be Sonic, nothing like some old school fun on a brand new device to keep me entertained.

  • Harold D

    Hamilton's Great Adventure.. It looks so cool, and the thing that got me excited was that it plays like Mario 3D games, and would be easy to get into fast.

    It has to be Sonic. Don't feel anything comes closer to it in anyway.

  • vs

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

    I chose this because it reminded me of my childhood! I remember playing this game as a kid. Aww fond memories. :)

  • Christina Wilson

    Eden to Green looks like fun, kind of like plants vs zombies, my favorite!

  • vanessa

    I would have to pick Sonic the Hedgehog. My brother and I used to love him when we were little. Brings back many wonderful memories!!

  • Shug

    Dark Kingdom looks like a winner to me. It is the most visually stunning.

  • Nichole M

    I would love to have Sonic the Hedgehog 4. I grew up playing Sonic on the old Sega Genesis. I even have a few downloaded on my Woo Console. I love how much this one reminds me of the old Sonic! It would be so much fun to play on the new Transformer Prime ;)

  • Florian Folger

    Tough to decide. I like puzzles, strategy/tactic, arcade & 1st or 3rd person action so ALL the trailers basically show most of 'em all with endless possibilities for others.

    I think I'd really enjoy the Eden to GREEEEN since it looks like it would play like a strategy/tactic but with an original setting and character list--more with a cartoon feel than a standard space or war scenario.

    But if it came to which one I'd buy first it would be Sonic Episode 2--I lost hundreds or thousands of games on Sega to my kids since they had more platform time (I won't give then any better skill cred)--it would be nice to give a little overdue pay (play?) back on a great platform!

  • http://rxbxccxv.tumblr.com Rebecca V

    Dark Kingdom looks the best out of all five (probably because I'm partial to RPGs). Google Play does need more quality RPGs though, and hopefully this will be one of them.

  • Iceman

    Dark Kingdom would be my first choice for this, a mobile RPG on a 10 inch screen sounds really cool.

  • goodluckkitty

    Sonic and Dark Kingdom are both tops for me!

  • Ashish Bagaddeo

    If I need to sonic, then that is what i need to do.. From the times when I was 12, use to play Sonic. Now at 26, I am still in love with the game. "Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II rocks"...

  • Jan

    I go with Sonic. Old game that must be fun to play on a new device...

  • Christopher Mathes

    All of the games look cool, but I have to go with Sonic. It's a classic and looks better than ever. I can't wait to play it on my new ASUS Transformer Prime!

  • Scott Oldfield

    My pick is Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. It's mainly because I haven't played a Sonic game since back in the Sega days. Excited to see what it has to offer now.

  • Limock

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II
    gotta love the classic

  • Shane Cannon

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

    Cause Sonic Boom says it all.

  • Toresan

    Eden to GREEEEN
