This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

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.

  • Steven T. (Note II)
  • Manuel M. V.L. (Galaxy Camera)
  • Matt J. (Nexus 7 16GB)
  • William J. (Nexus 7 16GB)

Now that the new-year's CES craziness is at an end, we thought we'd continue where we left off in 2012 - doing awesome giveaways. Today's is no exception, and comes to us courtesy of Basatne, an online electronics retail store  that offers hot-ticket gear to buyers from all over the world.

About Basatne

Basatne stands out from the sea of online electronics retailers not only because of their competitive pricing (thanks to their roots in wholesaling), but because of their speed - new items are available and in stock on Basatne oftentimes well before other online retailers.

Basatne doesn't stop at the credit card confirmation page, though. Every camera, tablet, and phone sold on Basatne comes with a one-year BasatnePlus Warranty, protecting you from manufacturing defects no matter where you are - an often overlooked pitfall of ordering unlocked smartphones on the web. This coverage extends to 5 years for camera lenses. For added protection, you can opt into the BasatnePlus Accidental damage protection plan.

Visit Basatne Electronics' website to check out their latest deals, give them a shout on Facebook or Twitter, or subscribe to their newsletter and blog to stay up-to-date with all things Basatne.

The Prizes


In partnership with Basatne, we're giving away some of the awesome stuff they sell. How does a Galaxy Note II, a Galaxy Camera, and two Nexus 7's sound? Pretty good, I imagine. To get a little more detailed about the prizes:

Not a bad little assortment, right? Certainly some desirable items to be had. We'll be picking four winners (one prize for each winner) at random.

Now, we know sometimes that contests on Android Police can be frustrating for our readers outside the US. So, we're hoping to make up for some of that today - this contest is open to all countries. As long as Basatne can ship it to you (eg, there are roads where you live), you can enter.

So, let's get to the details.

How To Enter

This contest is open to entrants from all countries. Just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below, and be sure to read our full contest entry rules here. The contest begins now, and ends on January 28th at 12AM PST.

  • Ernest Gamilla

    I was never a Samsung user cos income would not suffice to buy one but I've always been a fan. I am used to borrowing friends' Samsung gadgets to experience its technical efficiency. I always have a good one I must say. With Nexus, I just heard that it is indeed a tablet of choice since 2012 but I can't say a word to comment cos I wasn't even given a chance to hold one.

    My eyes tantalized when I see this promo and most especially when it was declared open internationally. Maybe dreams will come true this 2013. I hope to bring home any of them. It would be awesome!

    • http://twitter.com/Basatne Basatne Electronics

      Thanks for entering Ernest! Samsung truly does make nice devices, and the Galaxy Nexus 7 is a great tablet. Good luck!

    • talksick559

    I use to own an Asus Tf201 but there were hardware defects and when i sent it in to get it replaced/fixed, i never recieved my tablet OR any cash back. SInce then i've been in the market and looking at various sweepstakes and competitions. This is actualy one of the better ones. This is some great hardware topped with fluid software.; Congratulations in advance to anyone taking one of these things home. Jelly Bean is a real treat :D
