Midweek Madness! Win a piece of Android history

We missed last week’s Midweek Madness and today’s was a little late, but I think we have prize that most Android geeks will love. I was at CES 2011 when the mobile computing revolution began and I scored some memorabilia to share with our audience.

While I was at NVIDIA’s booth they gave us a handful of Tegra 2 keychains. The monetary value of one of these keychains is probably only a couple bucks, but five years from now I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of these in a museum.

How to enter the contest

Leave a comment and tell us why you want a dual-core Tegra 2 phone. We have several keychains to give away, but only one is up for grabs this week. There are no rules for this contest and I’ll ship it to anywhere in the world. This contest will be open for 24 hours and I will announce the winner tomorrow night on this post.

Update: And the winner is… Maxwell. I want a Tegra 2 phone because “two brains are better than one”.

Taylor is the founder of Android and Me. He resides in Dallas and carries the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One as his daily devices. Ask him a question on Twitter or Google+ and he is likely to respond. | Ethics statement

    I don’t want a Tegra 2 phone. I want a Tegra 2 tablet. That still counts, right?

    I’m really looking forward to the Xoom.

      With that said i want a Tegra 2 phone because of the sheer gaming capabilities and multi-tasking power its like turning chuck norris into a dual core mobile CPU and there you have a TEGRA 2

      • http://Website MIKEY

        Also to run crysis lol

  • http://mr-danielson.dk Daniel Lomholt

    Why I would have a Tegra 2-phone? Well, firstly I still have an old HTC Hero, that barely can’t run a game, without also having lag. If i have just around 2 programs open, its getting warm and slow, and I have taken a look at the LG Optimus 2X, which I think, will be the perfect phone for me, especially in multitasking. :-D

    because as a firm believer in android even though i am using AT&T (one of the least android friendly networks till now). i am also one of the founders of the group The Android Stepchildren of AT&T on facebook. i am also a huge Tech Geek and a key-chain with a Tegra 2 chip would be a huge prize.

  • http://www.evoreto.com Sebastian Mauer

    I’d like a Tegra 2 powered device because NVIDIA is the first vendor with extensive knowledge and experience in both the cpu/chipset and of course gpu world. along with 3dfx (which is also history) they brought pc graphics to the amazing level we are at now. I’m expecting similar things to happen in the mobile world. With the dual-core trend coming to the Android world, the Tegra 2 is the solution im rooting for.

  • http://Website J-Man

    I’d want a Tegra 2 phone for the sheer reasons of power efficiency, the raw processing power and the future prospects dual-core phones have against the single-core phones out today.

    This coming from a Nexus One owner.

  • http://Website Ewan Duncan

    I want a dual core Tegra 2 phone so if it reboots as much as the Nexus S, it will do it twice as fast!

  • http://Website Tanner

    Dual-core means faster processing. Longer battery life.
    I’ll be able to use my phone as long as possible, while still having a damn good experience.
    As long as its android I’m in, but dual-cores just means its faster and more efficient.

    I wouldn’t mind a Tegra 2 tablet either.

    I want a dual-core Tegra 2 phone because it has so much potential. As a Geek I use my current android phone for surfing the web, staying connected on twitter/facebook, emailing on the go, gaming, and much more. With the dual-core tegra 2 a phone can basically replace netbooks since it has a faster processor and I am looking forward to the games that can be played on a phone with the Tegra 2. Basically to sum it up I want a Dual-core Tegra 2 phone to continue being the Tech Geek I am :)

  • http://Website brian

    That’s a rather net keychain.
    I’d like a dual-core powered android phone for many reasons. First and foremost is the raw processing power. (Tim the tool-man Taylor grunt)
    the 1080 video, the smooth transitions, lighting fast loading times are just a few.
    With such a proven processor in a mobile phone, our lives are staying more and more in our pockets as technology evolves.
    The tech-nerd in me wants to be apart of that as many of your readers here.

    Mainly, pure awesomeness aside – I don’t carry a camera. Its my wallet and my smartphone. Even with my 1GHz hummingbird my camera hasn’t loaded in time, or video looks like junk. I’d like to capture life as it comes and never miss a silly moment my daughter has again!

    Goodluck everyone on that key – chain. Sure has history on it!

    I have a BlackBerry, everyone knows how long they take to load. I’ve had it freeze when it’s 10 pm and I’m alone at school with a thunderstorm and no car or anyone to give me a ride home. It sucks having to wait 5-10 mins waiting for your phone to load when everything surrounding you looks like a horrible scary movie. With a Tegra 2 phone I’m sure this wouldn’t happen, I need one!

  • http://Website zedklind

    ive been following nvidia with their development on the tegra chip for a couple years now. having faster processing speeds with lower power consumption really peaked my interest because the phones ive had havent been able to last more than 12 hours. The video they showed off last year with a tegra 2 chip running the unreal 3 engine really excited me. To think we can play great games like unreal tournament 3 on a small portable device is astounding! i was this close to shelling out 400$ to buy a tegra 2 dev kit just to fiddle with it last year and im excited its finally being released in devices this year. Just a little disappointed with tmobile lol.

  • http://www.bewareofraj.com Raj

    I’ll be buying the Atrix 4G when my contract is up. I’ve loved my Nexus One, but the future of mobile computing is, in my opinion portrayed by the Atrix. Without the Tegra 2, I don’t think it would of been the great dual core monster it is. I hope to see more Tegra 2 powered phones in the future like the Atrix.

    Also been wanting for a while – multiplayer, multiplatform gaming! I can’t believe they’re making it possible!

  • http://zalzalaweb.com/jens anakin78z

    I want a tegra 2 phone because I don’t want to be limited by hardware. Be it video, gaming, or general computing, my phone needs to keep up with all my needs and should leave nothing behind.

  • http://Website Gustav

    I want a Tegra 2 phone because it will bring in a new era of phone/computer hybrids like the Atrix 4G. Although i am probably not going to get an Atrix, i would still enjoy the power house that is Tegra 2. Cloud computing is entering the playing field, and Tegra will bring it to anyone anywhere.

  • http://Website Micah

    Well…i want the atrix and the atrix has a tegra 2 chip in it. Mainly the next phone that I will buy to be an upgrade to my nexus one, has to meet a few requirements. One of those is it has to be dual core, and so far, the tegra 2 chip seems to be at the cutting edge of technology. I want a true upgrade, not some of this bs single core crap that some of the people were trying to pull at CES!

    If I get the keychain it will match with my next phone anyways, as it’ll have a tegra 2 chip in it for sure!

    Why do I want a Tegra 2 phone? Simple, performance, performance, performance. Up until a little while ago I had doubts mobile devices would ever replace desktop computers. But now, from what I’ve seen at CES and how the tech is evolving so rapidly, I have to change my mind. I think Tegra 2, (and processors like it) are well on their way to accomplishing a true mobile computer in our pockets.

    We are living in awesome times, WE are literally part of a revolution. We are witnesses to the unstoppable growth and success of an open source platform like never before.
    Tegra 2 is going to broaden android’s already amazing capabilities, and I want to be part of it, I want to be part of the history of the most successful open source platform. So in 10 years I can say I was there, when it all started.

    The day I heard about a “google phone” possibly being launched I couldnt contain my excitement. Then came launch day. I ran to the mall as fast as I could during my lunch break on that crisp october afternoon to get my hands on a new T-mobile G1. A few weeks later i heard some blogs talking about “rooting.” WTH is rooting I said to myself. A few short hours later I was having a heart attack, I thought I had ruined my iphone killer. I searched all through the night online and at about 3 AM I was running a new rom And that was day I fell in love with Android. About one year later the rumors of a 1gHz processor phone coming out from google. I flipped every cushion over, rounded up all the pennies I could and pulled the $560 (after CA tax) trigger to buy my brand new sexy Nexus One with live wallpapers the day it was released, never even holding the amazing looking hardware. It took a day and a half to get it, I almost died of anticipation but the wait was well worth it. That was the best phone I have owned to date. I then went to the Droid X then a few weeks later to a fascinate, neither compared to the N1. Now that im on verizon I will be there on launch day for the Droid Bionic but that won’t be for long as it’s getting sold for the first HTC dual-core phone. A keychain like this would be an awesome conversation starter on how I have been on the android bandwagon even before this wagon had wheels.

  • SprintStrikesSwimmingly

    I want a Dual-core phone because it will truly be the iphone killer. Not only will it crush it in things such as quick and speedy multitasking, screen size and quality, 3D gaming, and overall Google experience, but it will also feature 4G! The rate at which manufacturers are releasing these phones is astonishing! Being on my dads advantage plan at Sprint has been great. The service is uncomparably cheap, lighting quick, and reliable. I remember the day the HTC Hero released. My dad purchased the Hero on day 1, and I was so impressed, I went back to buy one the following day. He now has the Evo, and I am stuck with my Hero. I am in desperate need for a Dual-core, so the event on February 7th better bring something big to Sprint. I thought I should also share that I live in Overland Park, Kansas. Sprint Headquarters!!!

    Hey Androidandme.

    My name is Ken aka AnDr0iDlUvR3R1 -_-

    I really can’t say I know very much about Nvidia, But from what I know they usually put their “prints” on the graphics of Mac computers which are 1 of the worlds greatest laptops. Any type of chip that’s within a Mac and is going onto a smart phone is worth spending money on and I would love to own a Nvidia Tegra 2 device. But being on T-mobile, I don’t see anything that great coming into the company but I have been praying and hoping. All I want is something that could take the place of my already sold 32 gig ipod touch. Anything that could replace what my ipod could do definitely has my full support and it would be a great update from my current Moto cliq phone that I totally regret buying. I really could care less about a keychain as much as I personally want to see the LG Optimus 2X on T-mobile……..

    Hi, I’m from Singapore. Here in Asia, we do not receive much love from android (especially the high-end ones). Particularly in my country, an estimate had shown that 1 out of 4 owns an iPhone 3GS/4.

    Android is my first smartphone OS and I had always shown my support for it by reading and constantly updating myself via tech blogs from other countries (Sometimes I wish I’m at U.S where all the bleeding edge android phones are borned).

    I want a dual-core Tegra 2 phone because I believe that android together with its powerful processing will outshine its competitors. In the crowd of fruit phones in my country, I want the help from Tegra 2 to upgrade my next green robot to be the best – with powerful gaming capabilities and the best user experience. Now with Tegra 2, the competitors aren’t getting anywhere near.

    Fruit phones may grow but they may rot. But a green robot with Tegra 2 is like an upgraded optimus prime who will live forever.

That being said, I don’t feel as if I’m able to really use even my current phone to its full potential (Epic) the battery life is just too short. The biggest thing I’m looking forward to is the battery life as well as the extra power I really hate when a device cant keep up with me.

    I love my Nexus One (running Gingerbread!), but, given the nature of these things, being one year old is pretty old. I would love a dual core phone for two reasons, mainly:

    (1) update on UI performance, as evidenced by my poor Nexus One stuttering along when using the Microbes live wallpaper from the Nexus S (though I realize the Gingerbread drivers are not optimized for the Nexus One yet, without an OTA); and

    (2) I love the promise of increased performance with better power management.

    To me, dual core is like fuel injection a few decades ago or direct injection more recently for the internal combustion engine: more power AND better efficiency. It exemplifies progress in engineering and human achievement.

    Hence, the keychain is pure geek cool!

  • DirtySimpleClean

    Alot of good and funny reasons lol.

    I personally want a Tegra 2 phone because I have been with Android since 1.5 and I’ve personally seen its growth. I’ve rooted, tweaked, overclocked, and flashed different roms, and have been loving the freedom of an open source platform. Since day one I’ve always said Android is just in its beginning stages and will demolish the IPhone someday. The IPhone is at OS Version 4, and Android is at 2.3/2.4 (Can you imagine what Android is going to be like at version 4?!?!?). That day has been getting closer and closer with the EVO, Droid Inc, Nexus S etc. and the Tegra 2 is the confirming action. It is a mile marker in Android history, and this is the device (Atrix 4G) I am going to pull my trigger on and finally buy a new phone as new phones are always coming out. I currently own a Inc running Gingerbread =P and yes I am very pleased with the phone coming from a G1 then a Eris. Performance is very much more liking to my needs, but when you get a faster phone, you become faster and the phone becomes slow again. This is where the Tegra 2 comes in with its dual core processor, amazing graphics (DUH its Nvidia, best graphics company IMO), AND its just makes the IPhone look like child’s play. I am a very patient person in general (I am a sales lead @ Best Buy Mobile =] ) but for this phone I feel like a little impatient school girl begging to get that new barbie doll. I see new phones come in all the time, but this phone is THE ONE. My cellular soul mate.


    PS, I’ve never personally won any contests like these, but if for some reason I do, I will get an Android tattooed on me. No Joke. AND I’ll post pictures.

  • ANtiHazarD

    why i want a dual-core Tegra 2 phone:


    Because the phone is based on this processor allows you to open for
    people new frontier of possibilities. It combines all that is only
    possible – from easy and comfortable to use your phone, to use the most powerful applications and HD gaming and a truly elegant using a web browser and the Internet.

    Life becomes more interesting with these devices, because they set up on
    positive attitude every morning, when you hold them in your hands when
    you feel that your opportunities today are not confined to the mobile version
    google.com :-)

    It’s all together and gives everyone us a great desire to possess,
    enjoy and feel all that power and originality in our hands ….

    I want a Tegra 2 phone because I have an addiction to having the fastest, most efficient phones in existence. I have my next phone narrowed to two, and both have Tegra 2 chips. And let’s be serious, this would take my geek cred to the next level!

    why do i want a dual-core tegra 2 phone??.. hopefully a better battery life for one and a huge step closer to running pc type games on a device you can put in your pocket!!!. imagine playing fallout 3 on your phone.. imagine NOT having to charge your phone when you go to bed!!!!… SEE whats happening, mention tegra 2 and imagination is REBORN. they shouldn’t call this chip “tegra”, they should call it GENESIS!!!!, (though not after the band, haha), “and into phone he placed the tegra 2 chip, and he was pleased, “go fourth and bring joy to the world “, ”

    so thats why i want one, to bring joy to all those around me, to give them hope, see how selfless i am. ;-)

    I want a Tegra 2 phone because of the multitasking…and gaming. I’m using my phone for work at all hours of the night. A dual core processor will allow me to do much more..and much faster.

    Cant wait for the Droid Bionic to come out!

    I have got only one nexus S for my wife instead of two initially planned for … reason is nothing but Nexus S will have the best software and I wanted the other phone to have the best hardware. NVIDIA tegra 2 stands there, it is surely one of the best processors of mobile industry in today’s world. As I wait for LG Optimus 2X on T-Mobile, atleast this keychain will keep me happy for the time being.

    After watching some CES videos of the attic 4g, why wouldn’t. I want a tegra 2 phone! It most definitely has the potential to unify all your hardware needs to just on device. It’s almost like carrying around your own cloud.

    After my Nexus One died (don’t I ask me how and why), I was looking for a new phone with Android. The HTC Desire HD is probably the best I can get here in my country, at the moment.

    Thanks to certain site/ news, I was teased incredible performances of this chip. I’m waiting for the first Tegra powered phone to be released. It will be my new phone.

    Why this chip? My computer uses a Nvidia GPU. I’m surprised by how well the chip performs, especially since it was just a cheap set. Gaming, watching movies – It does it all without problems. I do believe this little Tegra chip will impress me, when I’m holding a cell phone with one.

    The main reason is raw gaming power, but also the added benefit of the lower power consumption.

  • http://Website nezuko

    I want TEGRA 2 phone coz it’s so damn awesome make me wanna sell all my gadget only to have this phone. It does the HD and game flawlessly, and with the advanced power management from nVidia, the battery is last longer for such a heavy duty chip. All in all, TEGRA 2 is the real implementation of cortex A9 in the market with actual device ready to be shipped, not that kind of bigtalk among cortex a9 based chip like qualcomm and TI. I watched the hands on the LG Optimus 2x by android and me team and impress with what it can do. Right now I use Optimus 1, and want so badly to change to Optimus 2X once it already shipped in my country.

    Why the only reason i want a Tegra-Two Phone? One reason, Performance! Dual-Core Processor:
    ) Ive been with Sprint for many years already and i have the Sprint HTC Hero. Not the best phone. So much lag with in the phone and i cant even play a single and simple game on the Hero. Ive tired deleting some apps and clear up some memory with in my phone but nothing works. it overheats sometimes and freezes and reboots randomly because of its performance. (For everyone to know, im running stock Android 2.1 on my hero, my phone is not rooted and i never will root it) If i had a Tegra 2 phone, it would be the best and it would be impossible for a game to freeze while i play it! I was always sobbing for a Google Nexus One, but im not sure yet if i should get it because on now all the dual processor phone, The Google Nexus One has only 1ghz Processor and its still a great phone! But i would definitely want a Tegra 2 Phone!! Nexus One is still on my mind but Im with Tegra Now!!!:)

    • http://Website Eduardo A. Gonzalez

      Also with the new operating systems now, Froyo 2.2 and Gingerbread 2.3, It will be the best combination of the Tegra 2 Phone!!! With Cortex A9 and HD graphics for gaming, Tegra Phone will be the best!! The reason why i want a Tegra 2 phone is because its so awsome!!!

    Why do I want a Tegra2 phone? It’s a DUAL CORE PHONE! How awesome is that? I use Nvidia graphics cards in my PCs and know it will kick ass. Root the phone, get a custom kernel, and see how far we can overclock this bad boy!

    That, and unlike several people here. I am not going through and hitting the “-” button on everyone’s post thinking that will increase my chances. Wow people are jerks.

    I want a dual core android phone so I can experience android in it’s true glory. Running at a blazing speed with absolutely no lag.
    Everyone in my town have iPhones and Blackberry’s and never stop to knock on my phone whenever something goes wrong or doesn’t work (usually because of using experimental ROMs) they’ll complain about how even at 1ghz there is still some lag.

    I also use my phone for EVERYTHING, when I bought my Android phone I solicited use of every other gadget, that means it’s my primary music, video player. I read eBooks on it, I use it instead of my old Garmin navigation system. I even use it to tether my laptop when I’m at the beach without WiFi.
    I share the privlages of Android with my family so when I’m navigating using Maps, and tethering my sisters iPod Touch in long car trips and letting my little brother play Angry birds, things do bog down quite fast.
    Enjoying the speed, and battery improvements of a dual core phone would be great and I can’t wait to jump on the flagship, my months of saving up will have paid off.

    I’ve never won a contest like these and don’t expect too, but this is one nice souvenir I’d show all my friends.

    I’d love to own a Tegra2 phone because I think the “super” or “smart” phone will soon replace netbooks and such for mobile computing. The next wave of multi-core phones is a step in that direction. I mean, not so long ago we were thrilled when our monochromatic screened phones just made calls and had custom (midi) ringtones! Now, I’m nearly frying my battery regularly playing Pocket Legends and Dungeon Defenders! We’ve come a long way baby!!!

    Its that old saying “2 cores are better than 1″

    Tegra2′s better graphical capabilities not only mean the video playback and gaming abilities are on a whole new level, but even novel things like post-processing photos on the go to upload them to facebook or what not.

    All this while having music in the background, a texting app open, and multiple widgets.

    0 slow down.

    With Android and its ability to perform multiple tasks at once, Tegra 2′s true potential can be realized.

    As an added bonus.. my battery could last longer. ^___^

    I don’t want a Tegra phone. Actually I NEED a Tegra phone. We are in a moment in the technology timeline where the phones are not phones anymore but not computers neither.

That is why I want to be there when the new generation begins.
