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.

Winner announced, comments closed

Congratulations to our winner, Brandon, who just scored a Transformer and keyboard dock from @NVIDIATegra. If that’s not you, stay tuned for more prizes!

Would love to see Japan included as well come the next big competition. I did an internship in Android game programming over there this spring and am planning to return after I finish up my masters this spring.

  • SnDaa

    I have a name!

  • Leo Young

    I demoed this unit to at least a thousand people. Sold lots too. :)
    It is a very fine piece of equipment. I found it to be remarkably stable. However, the customers could do some pretty funny things with it. Once, over several months, I had to reset the demo unit.
    The biggest problem we had with it is we kept on selling out and had to set up new demo units. We charged it daily since we were demoing it all day but it had really good power consumption.
    The fact that it runs Android was a huge advantage. We were able to use the tablet to help customers in ways that we could not help them otherwise.
    The truly frustrating part is that I could not afford to buy one for myself. I would very happy to win it.

  • nephalim3

    I want one! It would be nice to actually have a Christmas.

  • paul.k.clark

  • huangkaidi

    Best Present Ever

  • korathin

    Still a good tablet even with Transformer Prime coming out real soon.

  • plasmoidia

    Really debated picking one of these up over Black Friday vs waiting for the Prime. Still think I’ll wait for the Prime unless the originals really drop in price. I really like the Transformer form factor with the keyboard dock. (big surprise: I have a Droid 2 with a physical keyboard for my phone)

  • kha40

    I don’t see any real different with this and prime, i mean, most game are not based on tegra at all, anyway, still want this

    • plasmoidia

      The Prime is more powerful and better at managing battery life. It’s also slimmer, if that matters to you. The extra processing power will be used at some point, you can count on that. But I agree the original is still a very nice tablet.

  • Marc’us H.

    Just past 12:30 and already over 1K in comments. The next 20 hours or so will be interesting.

    Ok Here’s my entry but there’s definitely some bugs in the login page. The link on the contest description takes me to profile page but always say I’m not logged in. I finally click on the Edit link on top and after submitting, takes me back to the edit profile page and says I’m not logged in. server not keeping tracking of my user session id? i had to log in like 5-6 times just so I could go to profile page and update my name.

    • hurric

      also too bad I couldn’t enter yesterday’s contest because I’m a long time ‘lurker’/reader but never signed up so post anything. Oh well. Hopefully more chances later on.

    Turns out I had already done so, probably because of Google+. Of course with “MY” name I’d probably win and then have to prove it really is my name. Fortunately the odds of my winning this are only slightly higher than winning any of the last 4… So should this be a :-( or a :-)?
