Day 5: Win an ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and keyboard dock


We’re back for yet another dose of the 25 Days of Tegra and we think it’s time we all got to know one another. In order to enter to win today’s prize, an ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, all you’ve gotta do is make sure your account has a real name tied to it.

The Prize: Asus Eee Transformer

Highlights of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer include a 10.1 inch IPS LCD display, dual-core 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM, 5 MP rear camera, 1.2 MP front camera, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional QWERTY keyboard accessory. Like all Tegra devices, this thing comes preloaded with the Tegra Zone for access to a bunch of today’s most awesome titles.

Contest Rules

This contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. Entries will be accepted for 23 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.

How to Enter

To play today, you need to make sure your And Me Account has your real name on it. On the Edit Profile page, we recently added the option to use your real name around the site. You can turn the feature on and off with a checkbox, but to win today all you’ve gotta do is enter your name. If you don’t check the box, your name will never be seen by anyone but us (which comes in handy if you win a prize).

Recently Google+ enacted a ‘real name’ policy, and while I was a huge fan, I realized that some would rather have this feature be optional. Today’s giveaway is mainly to highlight that we’ve added this option for those that want it. If you tell us your real name, you’ll be eligible to leave a comment below. If you haven’t, the comment box will be replaced with a link to the Edit Profile page.

  26. I never know what to say when leaving a contest-entry comment…
    Hi mom!

  27. I’ve been a long lurker on here. These great giveaways convinced me to join! Good luck to me and all of the contestants

  28. This would be awesome to win, love the look of the transformer and love the keyboard for it too.

  29. Giving it another go…!

  30. the real name idea is a good one, IMO

  31. Transformer Prime is surely the hottest tablet out there, but getting OG Transformer would make my Christmas really awesome for sure :)

  32. Looks like something nice for christmas

  33. it would be awesome to win one, since i was thinking about picking up the og transformer for a christmas gift!

  34. I’ve wanted this tablet and dock for so long!

  35. This would be awesome :). And using real names is so much better IMO, less people hiding behind a stupid nickname..

  36. Have one of these bad boys for my team to use for testing at work, would love to have another to keep at home full-time for the family to play with!

  37. Your alls giveaways are awesome and just keep getting more impressive! Thanks AndroidAndMe and NVidia!

  38. I am on your site everyday anyway but now that i have a chance to win prizes daily its even better!

  39. i would rather have this tablet than Optimus Prime

  40. do we have to use our real names, or just fill in the real name fields? and how would you know? :)

  41. Would like the eeepad of course

  42. I’ve been wanting one of these anyway! Would be nice to win it :)

  43. I’m glad this one is open to all users not just those with higher scores!

  44. keyboard + Tablet= productivity, but tablet + Me= game playing, web browsing and very little actual productivity. I think I would need to win this prize to reconcile the two equations.

  45. Happy Holidays Everyone.

  46. I wish, I wish, I wish!!! Fingers crossed!!

  47. I’ll take one of these…please.

  48. I GUESS I’d take a non-prime Transformer seeing as it comes with the dock.

  49. Nice giveaway guys! Keep up the great work on the site!

  131. Best of luck to everyone!

  132. Hope I can win at least one of these amazing gifts!

  133. Santa, I want an really awesome tablet for Christmas.

  134. Yay, another great device.

  135. Funny, on Black Friday I swung by Best Buy because they were selling some transformers for only $250. Unfortunately, they made a new SKU for the cheaper price and only allocated a certain amount in that SKU, so when I showed up the only transformers they had left were at the full price! Total ripoff, so I decided to wait for the prime.

  136. This makes me feel all warm inside. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  137. Checking luck 1 out of 9999999999999 possibility

  206. Thanks for all the great giveaways. I was embarrassed that I hadn’t registered for the site yet and thus was ineligible yesterday – I read the blog by RSS every day! Hoping for a win this time – really want a 10″ Android tablet.

  207. Real nice way to separate the site from all the android blogs.

  208. No “Account ranking” involved…I can participate !!!

  209. Neat, already had mine in there. :)

  210. I see a lot of folks with comments posted with what cannot be a real name. Can they? And above it says I’m logged in as lonndoggie. Must be my real name, otherwise, I’d see a link to edit my profile. Then again, sometimes I feel like my real name *is* Lonndoggie. But I’m fine with Lonnie, too.

    Thanks for running all these contests!

  211. I really like what you guys are doing here!

  212. I am Rich Jones, and I approve of this contest.

  213. Gotta get some tablet goodness

  214. Erm, so this didn’t happen:

    “If you haven’t, the comment box will be replaced with a link to the Edit Profile page.”

    So I posted as lonndoggie, thinking it would display my real name anyway. Then I edited my profile to use my real name–the old comment still shows lonndoggie.

    So forget that guy, I’m here, waiting by the mailbox for my Tegra-powered Asus Eee Pad.


  215. Wow. That’s a great giveaway.

  216. Been there, Done that!

  217. Check, Full name is there. Can’t wait to win that transformer. :)

  218. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner?

  219. I’m in..Santa..chose me!!!
