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.

With the launch of the 404 page design contest a few weeks ago, we wanted to achieve 2 goals:
- supply a premium giveaway that didn't involve social media for a change and
- give the talented readers of Android Police a chance to showcase their creativity and leave a permanent imprint on this website's design and identity
After over 140 submissions - some great, some not so good, some incredibly creative and witty, and some hilarious, I've requested your help in selecting your winner by picking the top 20 designs and putting them up for a reader vote.
To be clear, the poll's purpose was to gauge the general public's opinion on the designs to help us select the finalist, but some people took it as a popularity contest and an invitation to cheat.

Warning About Copyrighted Images: Guys, we're loving the responses for the contest so far, but we need to make something clear: we will not accept any entry that contains a copyrighted image or work - period. We are serious about plagiarism, and if we find you've used an image without permission, your entry will be disqualified until the offending material is removed. Thanks!
Alright, we heard from a lot of you that social contests just aren't up your alley sometimes - so we've listened. Our latest contest gives you the chance to win a T-Mobile LG G2x (courtesy of NVIDIA and Android Police) using only your super-awesome design skills.

After much debate, several upset comments, and a number of good points made - I've decided to rewrite the review of the Toshiba Thrive. Admittedly, the first review lacked the kind of thorough objectivity we usually try to achieve when we look at new hardware, and it's not fair to readers to make a jump to the conclusion without a complete analysis first. I apologize.
The Toshiba Thrive has been a darling of the Android community since it was unveiled way back in January at CES in Las Vegas, when it was still just the young, nameless "Toshiba Tablet." Fast-forward 7 months, it's July, and the Thrive is finally here - but has it matured well?
