Day 1: Win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9


The big day is finally here! Actually, twenty-five big days are finally here! Welcome to Day 1 of the 25 Days of Tegra, where you’ve got a chance to score a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9. This little dude has been my tablet of choice for a few weeks now, so we knew it’d be a great device to get the holidays rolling.

Like we announced earlier, these giveaways are for And Me Accounts only. If you’re not signed up yet, you can still join now. If you’d like to keep an eye on upcoming prizes, make sure to bookmark and share the official 25 Days of Tegra Calendar. Each day a new device will magically appear just waiting to be claimed by you, the loyal reader.

The Prize: Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

Highlights of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 include an 8.9-inch LCD display, a dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM, 3 MP rear camera, 2 MP front camera, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. This is the WiFi-only model in a dark gray finish.

Contest Rules

This contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Entries will be accepted for 24 hours after the contest goes live. We’ll announce the winner on the calendar page and on our Twitter account as soon as we draw.

Day 1 and the Tab 8.9 went to user drauks. Daniel actually turns out to be an extremely original member, having actually been the 158th registered user of the site. A worthy way to start our Tegra festivities, I’d say!
