Tegra day 6: Toshiba Thrive


We’re closing in on the end of our first week of the 25 Days of Tegra, and yesterday it felt really good to get to know you guys. Today, we’re taking it a step further and asking you to link your Twitter account for a chance to win.

The Prize: Toshiba Thrive

Highlights of the device include a 10.1-inch LED screen with an 800×1280 resolution, 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, 5 MP rear-facing camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 720p video recording, full-size SD card slot, full-size USB and mini-USB ports, and a full-size HDMI port. The real stars of the show here are all the full-size ports and slots, which make this tablet an absolute workhorse.

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 win

Similar to yesterday’s instructions, to enter to win today, you’ll need to head over to the Edit Profile page and make sure that you’ve got your Twitter account linked up. We won’t send a tweet, in fact we’ll never do that without your permission, we just want to know another way to get in touch with you guys. We’ve also got a handful of features coming soon that will make use of your Twitter account, like the ability to use your Twitter avatar around the site and the ability to show your recent tweets on your user profile page.

This giveaway is just a little way to give some users a head-start on this new functionality. If you’ve successfully linked a Twitter account, you’ll be able to leave a comment below. If you’ve not yet done so, you’ve still got time to do so on the Edit Profile page.

Winner announced, comments closed

Congrats to our winner, Jared. If that’s not you, stay tuned, we’ve got plenty more goodies on the way!
