After your (possibly over-) enthusiastic response (I kid, I kid; we appreciate your high spirits) to our last giveaway, we decided it would only be appropriate to allow two more readers the chance to win an ASUS Eee Pad Slider. That's right: NVIDIA, in its seemingly infinite awesomeness, has once again been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway of not one, but two 16GB white ASUS Eee Pad Sliders, both powered by a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and fueled by a wide variety of games from the Tegra Zone.
Can you believe we and NVIDIA have already conducted this many giveaways? It seems like just yesterday we were giving away the Motorola XOOM, and...
Never mind; let's cut to the chase: this time around NVIDIA has been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway of not one, but two white 16GB ASUS Eee Pad Sliders powered by the Tegra 2 processor and fueled by a wide range of available games from the Tegra Zone.
Remember Amazon Wireless' Freedom to Choose video contest? Yeah, the one with $15k in prizes for making a simple video telling why AW is awesome. Artem and I helped judge the contest alongside folks from Android & Me and Phonedog -- all the videos have been weighed and measured, and the winning clips have now been chosen.
There were two different categories: Judges and Voting. Here are the winning videos for each category:
Yesterday, we took a look at Riptide GP for Tegra devices with the addition of controller support. To celebrate the update and all the fun that adding a controller to your Tegra tablet can bring, we've once again teamed up with NVIDIA to bring our most massive giveaway yet: The Riptide Gaming Power Pack.
Just take a look of all that is in store for the winner:
Creating an aesthetically pleasing home screen for your phone or tablet has become an art in itself, and an entire ecosystem packed with widgets, themes, wallpapers, launchers, and custom ROMs has built up to support it. Sometimes, it can be tough to find a winning combination of elements to create a beautiful and enduring home screen that provides both form and function.
For this reason, we have decided to open up a call for gorgeous, well-decorated home screens of all shapes and sizes.
Who likes free stuff? You? Great, because we have some to give away (don't we always?)! Up for grabs today are three cases, courtesy of the awesome guys over at Otterbox. We all know and love Otterbox cases for the rugged, durable protection they provide our devices, but here's a quick look at each series of case.
Durable, simple, and stylish, the Impact Series is made of a molded silicon designed to protect your device from scratches, drops, dings, and other minor injury.
It's no secret that we love developers here at AP -- they are what fuels the Android ecosystem, after all. To show our appreciation for the elite group that get to call themselves 'devs', we've already successfully sent five on their way to various conferences to help further their skills and networking. At the beginning of the month, we gave away
two three tickets to the Android Open Conference in San Francisco, and, more recently, we sent a couple of lucky devs to AnDevCon II, also in SF.
Last week, we hooked
two three Android developers up with free tickets to the Android Open Conference on October 9-11, and now we have two tickets for the upcoming AnDevCon (Android Developer Conference), happening November 6-9 in San Francisco to give away. These three-day passes are normally $1295 each and will get you the whole kit-and-caboodle, with the exception of the pre-conference workshops.
Just like the previous giveaway, this is for tickets only.
Once again, we're teaming up with informIT to give away yet another book. This time around, it's perhaps what you'd call a higher-level book that might be especially useful to those familiar with developing, though it's still accessible to those just starting out. The book: Android Developer's Cookbook: Building Applications with the Android SDK.
Written by James Steele and Nelson To and published in October, 2010, the book spans a whopping 400 pages.
