Good news, everyone! NIVIDIA has been awesome enough to ship us a box of four brand new, WiFi-only Motorola XOOM tablets featuring the new NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. We’ll be giving away all four over the next few weeks, starting today with a simple Twitter contest.

We have a feeling most of you know exactly what this beast is capable of, but for those not in the know we’ll run through the specs. The XOOM is running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), has a 10.1 inch screen, has dual cameras (5MP rear, 2MP front), and of course is sporting a dual-core 1ghz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Because it’s got a Tegra inside, it’s also got access to TegraZone, a curated mini-market featuring the newest and best 3D games Android has to offer.

Check the video below for our poolside unboxing (it was a nice day out) or scroll down below for contest details!

Win a XOOM on Twitter

To be entered to win our first XOOM, all you’ve gotta do is craft a tweet with two key pieces: the hashtag #iwantaxoom and the Twitter handle @NVIDIAtegra. For example, you could tweet,

Man! #iwantaxoom with the @NVIDIAtegra 2 for the awesome games.

Or you could say

I’m a nerd so #iwantaxoom with an @NVIDIAtegra to do homework. And to adjust my glasses with the front facing camera.

The key to remember here is to include #iwantaxoom and @NVIDIAtegra. If you do so, you’ll be automatically entered in a random drawing, to be held Monday morning (5/2/11) for a free, brand-spankin’ new WiFi-only XOOM. You can use the tweetbox below or you can tweet to your heart’s content through your own apps/channels, just make sure to include the key phrases. Good luck!

If you’ve got any questions, please leave a comment here and we’ll get you an answer. If you don’t use Twitter, stay tuned! We’ve got more XOOMs coming soon and they will be given out through non-Twitter channels!

We have a winner! With almost 3k entries counted, the lucky XOOM-owner-to-be is Jacob Stroop, aka @israel941. Congratulations Jacob! And the rest of you, stay tuned, we’ve got more XOOMs coming your way soon!
