QRCodeforVotingLast week, we told you about NVIDIA's first Player's Choice Awards - a way to let the players speak out about which Tegra Zone games have the best graphics, the best gameplay, and are just the most fun to sit down and play. Not only that, but NVDIA is giving away seven Tegra Zone Gamepacks to seven lucky winners just for voting in the PCA. So, if you haven't done so already, head over to the Tegra Zone and vote for your favorites! (alternatively, just hit the QR code on the right to go there on your mobile).

Speaking of awesome Tegra Zone games with incredible graphics, have you seen Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II? It's beautiful. The difference between the Tegra 3 version of the game and the non-Tegra version is like night and day. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself:

Sonic 4 Episode II - Tegra 3 S X S 1

Sonic 4 Episode II - Tegra 3 S X S 2

See? the textures and sceneries really are gorgeous in this game. You don't have to take my word for it, though - hit the widget below to grab it for yourself!

  • Momota Egawa

    Wow, that looks like an incredible package. This is the appropriate evolution of tablet computing. My favorite has to be processing and graphics power from the Tegra 3 processor.

  • jaredferdizzle

    My favorite feature is the dock. All of the extra battery and a laptop

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Phillip-Hess/100003812058167 Phillip Hess

    Gotta love that Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Makes for stunning console-quality gaming, and running on Android 4.0.3 is pure bliss! 

  • Irishgreendavis

    My favorite feature is the fact it has a tegra 3 quad in it!!

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

    It's obvious, the killer processor inside.  We all know it blows away the iPad ;)

  • Iggy

    I love having a full-size USB port on the dock. Combine that with your favorite flavor of Remote Desktop app and you can get a much finer grain of control over the session than you could otherwise.

  • SlipperieSlope

    That IPS display would make me drool all over this tablet... Maybe I should invest in one of those sucky thingies that dentists use to try and suck your brains out.

  • brimanp

    obviously the tegra processor

  • markettantrik

    Will it run Crysis?

  • howdy1710

    Very simple to use...

  • GazaIan

    Favorite feature has definitely got to be the keyboard dock. I truly think ASUS is the only manufacturer who knows what they're doing when it comes to Android tablets, the tablet is amazing, and the keyboard dock just completes the package. It's freaking awesome.

  • darkxvx

    The dock

  • Adam Wilkins

    i really really really like the dock feature, a keyboard AND extended battery?!? :D

  • bevon

    I love that i can buy a dock and use it as a small laptop. Even samsung galaxy tab cant do that

  • Carlos

    I'm a self-confessed multimedia junkie and I usually consume more movies and other videos than what my daily free time allows me. That's why the best feature of Transformer Pad 300 for me is that fact that it carries NVIDIA Tegra which allows me to play full 1080p HD content on the go. Add to that the IPS Panel that makes sharing the screen with fellows while watching videos a non-PITA, I think we've got some awesome package in here! Count me in! :) 

  • Wallnerx

    Will it blend?

  • http://twitter.com/Scotty_Braun Scotty Braunworth

    Definitely the Tegra 3 processor and the keyboard dock!   awesome giveaway Android Police & Nvidia, Thanks!!

  • WeBeWeasels

    Tegra 3 is what i like best about the 300. [Asus has smokin' tablets, which is a definite plus, too, as is the docking..]

  • http://www.jameskaczynski.com/ James Kaczynski II

    My favorite feature is the Tegra 3 =D

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1372896807 Ryan Morse

    my favorite feature is terga 3 inside it

  • https://twitter.com/Dryden13 Alan T.

    My favorite feature is its weight.  It's so light!

  • mgamerz

    It can run Sonic 4 Ep 2! Plus it has the kick ass dock. I know a lot of people in my CS department that have transformers, and they love them.

  • aj34

    My favorite feature is the Tegra 3 processor! plus it runs ICS... HOORAY!

  • Andrew Sorn

    I'm in love with the keyboard dock attachment of the Transformer series. Using bluetooth is nice and all, but the dock gives the tablet an extra life, and a real potential as a productivity tool. Would love to have something like this to work on before I move.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dejay-Riordan/99200548 Dejay Riordan

    My Favorite feature is the HDMI out i know its a pretty standard feature kind of but having a powerhouse of a machine that i can connect to my tv and connect a controller too and play games on would me awesome 

  • Ryan Tedrow

    As with many others the main feature of the Transformer that appeals to me is the keyboard.  I love the fact that you can sit done and get some work done and then undock it and get.  I had a chance to use one of these recently and they did a great job of making the device feel like a netbook while docked.  Now the Tegra3 is no slouch either and follows as a REAL close second favorite feature of ASUS's tablet. =)

  • Nickolaszev

    Favorite feature? How about low price, high end Tegra 3 and huge capacity?! I love it! 

  • Minpoetry

    Its omnipotent abilities. I'd replace my brain with it.

  • Brian Luckerman

    Still love the docking feature, I want my hands on this! :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/jonathanjin Jonathan Jin

    Keyboard dock definitely places this tablet a step above everything else on the market.

  • Catiremedina

    I love the fact that it has a dock and can serve as a productivity device as well as an entertainment one. Plus it's got the performance without the hefty price.

  • Juan Pablo Ospina

    The fact that it has a Tegra 3 and still has a really great price!

  • Alexddupree

    The tegra 3 makes it on par with most slightly older laptops and android 4.0 is amazing 

  • David Bretzke

    Tegra 3 is the reason i want it

  • Bruce Kim

    Hmm... there are so many but Tegra 3 and Adobe Flash support would be my top favorite features for Transformer Pad 300.

  • Iyer Rajashekar

    My favorite feature of the Pad 300 is its incredible value for money. Nothing beats that.

  • Chris W

    A second giveaway awesome. I love the tegra chipset would love to have one.

  • Cmichaelym

    Obviously the Tegra 3. And Asus, they always make great devices! This would be the perfect device for me just now. Hope I win!

  • EUVphysics

    I really like the fact that it's a fully-functional transformer with almost all the bells and whistles as the transformer prime...

  • PezLee

    The dock makes the tablet format a more versatile one, especially with the power of the 4 plus 1 processor package in the Transformer Pad 300.

  • Chris

    Handy dock makes note-taking in class a breeze.

  • ewilliams1009

    nice fast processor and ICS

  • http://twitter.com/jfarmer73 Jason Farmer

    Hard choice between the Tegra 3 and the keyboard. I think the keyboard wins because it adds a new dimension of usability.

  • Daniel L

    you get all of the versatility of a tablet with the functionality of a laptop -- sounds like a perfect combo!  

  • Lordcantee

    As a gamer i really like the tegra 3, the graphics look great for a tablet/ mobile device and i would really enjoy having a tablet with a tegra 3 since the 7'' tegra 3 tablet never came to existence.

  • slyder0244

    My favorite feature is the micro sd slot

  • BroodjeBami

    My favorite feature would be the keyboard dock. It would make my life as a student so much easier.

  • http://androidforums.com/members/spartoi.html Spartoi

    Another loser here. 

    Anyways my favorite feature would be dock ofc.

  • Keyz Karanza

    Quad-core. I am still using a single core device.

  • Kevin Ready

    The Tegra 3 processor is my favorite feature. That tablet is so smooth

  • MichaelS

    Very simple... Tablet with a dedicated keyboard/battery attachment that protects it like a laptop, when needed.

  • canined

    My favorite feature would have to be the good looking display.  A nice IPS display will make me enjoy watching media and playing games.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Benham/1372434599 James Benham

  • Spikejnz

    I like that it's a tablet that has both personal and professional uses. Want to play Sonic 4? No problem! Need to type of a document for work on the go? Pop it in a doc.

    the one gig of ram is awesome

  • Carey Gates

    My favorite feature is the tegra 3 processor for all the good gaming potential.

  • Justin Leo

    Definitely the IPS display!

  • ajhall62

    There are so many different things to like about the package and the games. I just can't pin down 1 thing to say that is my favorite. I like the dock, I like the power of the processor. I JUST CAN"T DECIDE!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000067599920 Bryan Harvey

    my favorite feature is the is the keyboard dock. It gives it that nice tablet to laptop feel that makes me feel better about not buying a laptop for school and loading it with pc games that will consume my life on the go much like my life at home with diablo 3...

  • Jose Hadathy

    The best part is definitely the super fast tegra 3 processor! amazing tablet by ASUS

  • John Underwood

    Favorite feature of the Transformer Pad 300? Tegra 3!

  • LittleBiscuit

    my fav feature is that it runs ICS and has a tegra processor

  • Kevin Ready

    besides the tegra 3 processor Ill love that it has ICS since i have yet to play with it

  • Djacks0018

    My favorite part is the way Asus handles ICS. Its to beautiful of an OS to have things like touchwiz and sense glazed over it.

  • SJ

    Widescreen... Runs flash... Affordable keyboard... USB... Too many more things to count.

  • Lekshmi Ravindranath

    The Quad Core processor makes it a killer....wanna win this Transformer Pad 300... :)

  • PudgyPanda

    Tegra 3 processor and ICS make this a wonderful tablet

  • http://www.facebook.com/Prfndhatrd Jordan Ellingson

    4th core for battery life :-)

  • Pera

    My favorite feature is the keyboard dock.

  • Law

    Tegra 3

  • Taylor

    Favorite? That would probably have to be the keyboard/dock. Or the Tegra 3. Or the nice tablet shipping with ICS. Second favorite is pretty much everything else.

  • SStewart654

    My favorite feature by far is the Tegra 3 processor!

  • Shemai

    I like the keyboard because I feel its much easier to use while playing games instead of touch screen all the time which is difficult for me.Plus I can have a lot more fun with it!
