[Updated: Here Are The Winners!] Giant Giveaway #8: Photon Week - Win One Of Three Motorola Photon 4Gs For Doing Almost Nothing

The Android Police giveaway fever continues, but this time we've stepped things up with a triple header. Once again, we've teamed up with NVIDIA to give away three Motorola Photon 4Gs. Why? Because NVIDIA and Tegra Zone are awesome.

The Prizes

As I myself have discovered in the past few weeks, the Photon is a great phone that packs some serious power under the hood:

  • Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) + NinjaBlur UI
  • 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 (dual core) CPU
  • 1 GB DDR2 RAM
  • 4.3" qHD (960 x 540) display
  • CDMA and GSM bands
  • 4G (WiMax)
  • 8MP camera with dual LED flash, 720p video capture in the rear, VGA front-facing camera
  • 16GB memory + microSD slot
  • HDMI Mirroring
  • Kickstand
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi

Out of all the giveaway/contests we do here at AP, my favorites always end up being the creative kinds because they always leave us with long-lasting memories and give a chance to truly talented people who put in work into their entries. Such were the photo, the Twitter design, t-shirt design, and most recently the 404 page design giveaways (the last one being my favorite).

And The 3 Best Out Of Milk Giveaway Comments Are...

Remember our Out of Milk giveaway? Come on, it was like, a few days ago. If you don't, we gave away 25 copies of the Pro version of this absolutely fantastic shopping and pantry organization app to the comments here and on Google+ that we enjoyed the most. Here they are.

From "Klaus with a "K"" in the post comments:

“Honey? We're out of milk. – again!”

When milk is what you need
and shopping warnings were not heed
Then You, my friend, are out of luck
and in the doghouse surely stuck

You need to shop with care
and plan your trip with flair

Can’t decipher illegible doodles
will end you up buying noodles

Don’t bring home salami
knowing everyone eats pastrami

And when all that’s needed is a bit of oats
you better not come rolling home with goats

No listed item should be carelessly omitted
or for sure you will be deemed nit-witted.
