In the past few months, we have been giving away various devices in what I dubbed the "Giant Giveaway" series. Despite having given away 3 tablets (the XOOM, the G-Slate, and the Tab 10.1) already, we're not planning on slowing down; in fact, we're going to accelerate the giveaway process. Rather than keep the giveaways open for 2 weeks, we're going to run them for only about 5-7 days instead, as otherwise our shelves will collapse under the weight of all the goodies and ruin them, and we don't want that, do we?
In the spirit of letting you guys in on the best gadgets the market has to offer, today we are excited to announce that the prize for this week's giveaway will be the 32GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Wi-Fi edition (up from the 16GB version in the last giveaway).

Wow, what a week it has been! Our 3rd giant giveaway, featuring the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, has blown the lids off all other promotions we've done in the past, with over 6,000 entries via Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Google+ users really kicked this up a notch this time around, as the new network absolutely exploded in its first week of existence, already driving more traffic to the site than Twitter and Facebook combined.
Amusingly, we've managed to push G+ to its limits a few times, finding out the maximum number of shares displayed (1000), the maximum number of comments per post (500), and, hilariously, topping the list of users who invited the most friends to the service on the first day of its life.

It looks like owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 are facing yet another display issue: Newton's rings. According to Wikipedia, Newton's rings is an "interference pattern caused by the reflection of light between two surfaces;" but how does this apply to the Galaxy Tab, you ask? Imagine what motor oil looks like when combined with water, now place that under the screen of your Tab 10.1.

That's what a whole slew of users over at XDA are dealing with at this very moment. The thread is currently up to eleven pages, and basically every single post is an affirmation of this issue.

Our first 2 giant tablet giveaways seemed to strike a chord with you guys, and after transforming two Android phone fans into two happy Android tablet fans over the past few months (congratulations again, Keith and Chris), we are not going to stop and continue giving away awesome prizes to you, our loyal readers.
As you may have already figured out from the title, our 3rd giant giveaway, sponsored by NVIDIA, is going to involve a Galaxy Tab 10.1, the slimmest 10" Honeycomb Android tablet on the planet and my personal favorite. In particular, we're giving away a 16GB Wi-Fi version that retails at $499.99.
