Whewww! We finally made it to the final week of the 25 Days of Tegra and boy do we have some awesome stuff lined up for you guys. We’re starting today by revisiting the prize from Day 1, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, but this time around we’ve doubled up to the 32 GB model so you’ll have even more room for all your media and pictures and whatever else you guys cram on a tablet.

    Wow that would be a great gift!

  • pcon

    This is such an interesting size for a tablet. Has anyone tried it out? Is it to big for a small tablet and too small for a big tablet?

    • banhbao007

      in it to win it!!

    • jimtravis


      I tried the iPad, and then the 10″ Android tablets. I found they were fine around the house, but a bit of a pain to carry around all day when out of the house. I used the original 7″ Tab for a year, and it was an excellent combo from weight, bulkiness, cumbersomeness, PIA to carry around, web viewing, video viewing, and app use perspectives. I tried the 8.9″. It is the same weight as the original Tab, still fits in my winter jacket pocket (albeit a tighter fit than the 7″), has a great screen which enhances all the plus attributes while minimizing the negative attributes. Since it is the same weight as the 7″, carrying around in a backsack, case etc when the winter jacket is in storage should not be much different than last summer with the 7″ Tab (great device in its own right).

      If you intend on taking the tablet with you when you go out of the house, recommend you give a serious look at the 8.9″ tablet. It is just smaller enough than the 10″ to be easier to carry around all day, and is larger enough than the 7″ to enhance the overall experience. After using the 8.9″ for awhile, the 7″ tablets seem too small, and the 8.9 size is quickly becoming the sweet spot for my out of the house mobile use.

    I have a feeling this might be the last day I’ll be able to enter. I haven’t been able to enter the contests that were based on length of time with an andme account, and if they go over a minimum of 60, I’ll be screwed there too.

    This would be perfect if I won. My 13 year old niece is begging for one of these for Christmas but don’t have the funds to get her one right now. Would love to make her smile on Christmas morning when she opened the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9! And gurantee it’s for her and not me, I have the Galaxy Tab 10.1 I got a while back…

  • gaelicwhiskey

    Yes please.

  • ChewyMyDog

    I actually dig this 8.9 tablet form factor. Played around with it at Sprint. I think the 10″ is a tad big. The spec on this is average since it’s not the latest on the market….the 1ghz dual core is just sooo underwhelming…heck you can actually reclock the HP TouchPad back to 1.5ghz (it’s not Tegra)…cant compare everything to cpu clock speed but the thought of it just make me want to wait for something else from SamSung in the 8.9 form factor. I will not throw it away if you give it to me though:-)

  • deep_powder

    What a great contest – Thanks, guys. Man, I’d love to win this beauty!

  • macarelli00

    This would be a good present for my wife, whom I’ve yet to get a present for.

  • Michael N

    It would be awesome to win this, I want to give my wife a tablet that works well. She has the Nook Color from last year, but it performs horribly. I got her the new Nook Tablet for this Christmas, and it does look to be a LOT smoother, but I hate that it is a locked down Android experience. I want her to be able to do whatever she wants like I can on my Nexus One and iPad. I just can’t afford to drop $400 on a tablet this year :(

    Also, I swore I registered on this site a long time ago but apparently not… so I missed out on a bunch of the contests.
