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.

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.
