My friends, the big day is finally here! Not only is today Christmas, it’s the 25th Day of Tegra and that means it’s time to blow the roof off this place. Today’s prize pack is easily the biggest we’ve ever given away on the site, featuring the brand new ASUS Transformer Prime with dock, along with a ridiculous Sonos package that includes a pair of speakers and a Kindle Fire.

The whole package is worth about $1600, not only breaking the record on our previous prizes, but practically doubling them. And with a prize pack so big, we decided to give you three ways to win. Over the next three days (starting now), there will be a new way to win each day. Once we’ve got three finalists, we’ll pick an ultimate grand prize winner.

The Prize: ASUS Transformer Prime with dock, Sonos Play:5, Sonos Play:3, Sonos Bridge, and a Kindle Fire

Today I won’t bother boring you with the specs. I have a feeling you guys already know just about everything there is to know about these devices. The ASUS Transformer Prime of course is the first tablet to feature the new NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The Sonos Play:5 and Play:3 are the best built speakers your Android will ever love. The Kindle Fire is one of the most talked about tablets of the year. And we’re giving you a chance to win it all.

Sponsor: NVIDIA

Since this is our last giveaway of the year, I feel the need to gush a bit about the folks that made it happen. The guys from NVIDIA (specifically the @NVIDIATegra team), have been one of our biggest supporters over the years. They continually hook us up with rad selections of devices and more importantly they trust us enough to run custom promotions like this one for you guys. They’ve been a great friend to the Android community and we wish them continued success in 2012.

Sponsor: Sonos

My love affair with Sonos began right before my wedding, when they sent me a pair of Play:5 speakers as an early gift (easily my favorite gift we didn’t register for). The Sonos system makes it possible to stream music from your own collection and from just about any internet radio service to any room in your house. The whole thing can be controlled speaker by speaker from your smartphone or tablet, making for the ultimate party (it even kicks up chores and other boring things).

Some of the oldies in the group might recall that Sonos joined us at our SXSW party last year (the guys with the glowing backpacks). @Sonos has been another long time friend of the Android community and swooping in to beef up this last giveaway is just another example of that. Rock on, Sonos.

Contest Rules

This contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Each round of entries will be open for 23 hours. We’ll announce the winner on the calendar page and on our Twitter account as soon as we draw.

How to win

To enter to win today, all you’ve gotta do is leave a comment below. If you’re logged in, you’ll be able to comment. Like I said earlier, this is just the first chance to win. Tomorrow we’ll have a different challenge and the day after we’ll have another. We figured traffic on Christmas might be an all-time low and we didn’t want any of our loyal readers to miss out on such a sweet prize pack.
