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.
The Slider, for those with less-than-ideal memories, is the keyboard-tablet hybrid we reviewed just a few weeks ago.

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.
The Slider, for those with less-than-ideal memories, is the keyboard-tablet hybrid we reviewed just a few weeks ago. It's not quite perfect - it is, after all, subject to Honeycomb's shortcomings - but it's still an excellent tablet, especially compared to its Android-based competition.

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:
- ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 32GB with keyboard dock.
- YOUR CHOICE of Tegra powered superphone - Motorola Atrix (AT&T), Motorola Droid X2 (Verizon), LG G2x (T-Mobile), or Motorola Photon 4G (Sprint)
- Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710
- $25 AMEX Giftcard for TegraZone games, including Riptide GP
Is this the best giveaway we've done yet, or what?

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. Each month we will select the very best home screen configuration(s) and completely break it down into its component parts, providing you with all the necessary information to create your own awesome home screen.

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 probably won't help if you toss your phone out of a helicopter, but how often could that happen?

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.
For those on the East Coast, though, a trip across the country may not be in the budget right now.

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. You are responsible to your own travel expenses, lodging, food, and any other associated fees.
Before we get into how you can win, let's get to know what AnDevCon is all about, shall we?

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. It's available in both eBook and print for $25.59 (or $24.34 on Amazon) and $31.99, respectively - or $43.19 for both.
