[UPDATE 2.0] Nexus 7 Giveaway: Why do you need a Nexus tablet?


The Nexus 2 7″ may sell for as little as $229 with a July 31 retail launch date, but you can have the original Nexus 7 for free this week!

“How?” you ask. Well, we’re making it nice and simple. All you have to do is tell us, in the comments, why you need a Nexus 7 in your life. What will you do with it? How will it make your life better? The top five commenters (that’s right, we’ve got five Nexus 7 tablets to give away!) will each win a device.

I need dis.

This could be you.

For this contest, only commenters with an And Me account will be eligible to win. If you don’t have one already, sign up now. It’s free and easy. This contest will be open to continental US residents only. Sorry international buddies, but the logistics of expanding our giveaways to overseas audiences are impractical.

Remember, you can embed images and gifs (that’s with a hard “g”) in our comments section. So, be as creative as you can with your post. Then vote for your favorite. You have until Tuesday, July 23 at 11:59 PM EST to earn votes. At that time, we will tabulate and begin contacting the winners. Happy commenting!


Man, y’all are some negative Nancies.

Fortunately, we at Android And Me are experienced in the ways of the number line and are able to rank negative integers from least to greatest.

Unfortunately, the innane downvoting seems to put newer comments at an advantage. However, there is nothing stopping entrants from leaving more than one comment, although, only one tablet will be awarded to each individual. (i.e. You cannot win more than one tablet).

Needless to say, we will stick with random drawings in the future. We just wanted to give you all something a little more fun and interactive than that.

To anyone off-put by the fact that we require you have an account to win: We are very grateful to have such an amazing community on our site. It shouldn’t be too much to ask that you officially join that community in order to participate in community events. Plus, without verified contact information, how can we get in touch with you if you win? ;)

Everyone, please remember that this is just a friendly contest. Be nice! The NSA is watching you.

Update 2.0:

The contest is now over. Thanks to everyone who played and stayed positive throughout. We have begun contacting the winners. Check your inboxes!

Words are hard. I word good.
