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.

Sumarth Mehta - Note 8.0

Trevor Hicken - Nexus 7 or Slate 7

Enoch Kim - $75 Staples gift card

Happy 4th to our US readers, and happy Thursday to everyone else (unless it's not Thursday where you live)! We thought we'd celebrate the US's day of independence with some free stuff from our pals at Staples. We'll be picking three lucky winners for this particular contest.


We're partnering with Staples on this giveaway - you know, the Easy Button people. Staples sells a wide variety of Android (and other) tablets, and all at pretty great prices. You can check out their tablet page on the Staples website for more info.

The one tablet we're highlighting in particular today is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 - which happens to be the grand prize! One winner will receive a Note 8.0 (white, 16GB, Wi-Fi), courtesy of Staples. The Note 8.0 is the middle child in Samsung's Note family of devices, sitting between the Note II handset and the Note 10.1 tablet. We reviewed the Note 8.0 and, for the most part, fell in love with this device. It packs a built-in stylus that works in tandem with a Wacom digitizer panel to provide you pinpoint accuracy for drawing, note-taking, and other stylus-based tasks.

Our runner-up winners aren't being left out in the cold, though. One winner will have a choice of a Nexus 7 16GB tablet, or an HP Slate 7 16GB. Finally, our third winner will receive a $75 Staples gift card, because you can always use more printer ink. For details on how to enter, just keep reading.

How To Enter

This contest is limited to US residents only. Entering is simple - just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below.

Damn, it's one hell of a way to waste one's time and has since brought my productivity to all time low...but still, I can't put it down! LOL!

  • Cigi Mills

    I currently do not have a favorite Android app because I have not been able to get my hands on an Android device to own. I hope to get the Note 8 at some point though, either by winning or buying. Very few tablets are a decent size to me without being huge, this one fits.
