Midweek Madness! Win a piece of Android history

We missed last week’s Midweek Madness and today’s was a little late, but I think we have prize that most Android geeks will love. I was at CES 2011 when the mobile computing revolution began and I scored some memorabilia to share with our audience.

While I was at NVIDIA’s booth they gave us a handful of Tegra 2 keychains. The monetary value of one of these keychains is probably only a couple bucks, but five years from now I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of these in a museum.

How to enter the contest

Leave a comment and tell us why you want a dual-core Tegra 2 phone. We have several keychains to give away, but only one is up for grabs this week. There are no rules for this contest and I’ll ship it to anywhere in the world. This contest will be open for 24 hours and I will announce the winner tomorrow night on this post.

Update: And the winner is… Maxwell. I want a Tegra 2 phone because “two brains are better than one”.

    I want a Tegra 2 smartphone because thats the step forward that mobile technology is taking, and as far as functionality and efficiency it seems that NVIDIA’s chip is the best solution available and it will be predominant this year and probably next as far as mobile power. Can I haz a keychain??

    I would like a Tegra 2 phone because I’m tired of Samsung and the bullshit they pull the Galaxy S (and all of their phones). It’s an amazing phone but the lack of support is terribly annoying. I’m looking for a Tegra 2 phone because they are the new advancement in technology that we’ve been looking for, especially the Atrix 4G

    We would love to have the remaining Tegra 2 Keychain so we can put it into the NVIDIA section of our Chip memorabilia collection. It would forever be on display for all the internet community and can be enjoyed by fellow chip collectors.
