Win a Galaxy Tab 10.1 from AndroidGuys and Skype!

galaxytab101_feature

Hey there!  Yeah, you!  How would you like to get your hands on a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet?  No, we’re not kidding – we have a brand new Android tablet that we’re super excited to be giving away.  We’ve partnered with Skype for this promotion and couldn’t be more excited to see how you guys and gals respond!

First, a bit about Skype

Founded in 2003 and based in Luxembourg, Skype is the text, voice and video service that nearly everyone has tried and used at least once.  With almost 700 million users around the world, it’s fast becoming one of the de facto ways to stay in touch over long distances.  In addition to desktop clients there are also applications that can be downloaded and installed on mobile devices, televisions, and more!

Next, a bit about the Galaxy Tab 10.1

We’re talking about the Wi-Fi, 10.1-inch 16GB Samsung tablet that everyone knows and loves.  If you need a brush up on the hardware, here’s a quick rundown!

  • Display: 10.1″ WXGA (1280×800)
  • Android Honeycomb
  • Dual Core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n)
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 3-megapixel camera (720p video) on back
  • 2-megapixel camera on front

How to Enter!

Since we’re doing this contest in conjunction with Skype we thought that we’d theme entries around video chat.  We want to know: If you could video chat with anyone at all, ever, in the history of the universe, who would it be?  Taking things a step further, we don’t even care if they are real or fictional.  We want to know who you would video chat with and what you would talk about.

You can leave your answer in one of three places: here in the comments, our Facebook Wall, or on our Google Plus Page!  Heck, you can even leave it all three places with different answers and increase your chances of winning.  Should you leave a comment here, you must use a valid email address.  Wherever you ultimately decide to leave your answer, make sure that we can reach you when it’s over. Note: you must leave your Facebook and/or Google Plus answer on the dedicated spot, linked within this sentence!

  • Open to residents of the United States and Canada (we know, we know)
  • Contest will run from May 24-June 7
  • Winner will be notified and have 24 hours to respond before we move on to the second place winner.
  • Judging will be conducted by a panel of AndroidGuys staff and will be primarily based on content and originality
    • Yes, technically you could get away with “I’d video chat with Abraham Lincoln and we’d talk about Twilight”, but… really?

Have fun with your answer and think it through!

    I would chat with the neighbors dog and talk with it about what the hell goes on it’s head when he’s barking for 4 hours …does he think “WTF?!?! I’ve been barking for 4 hours and no one is answering me?!?!”

  • B J Books

    Would like the opportunity to chat with Rick Astley, so I could ask him what is worse…getting Rickrolled or BEING Rick Astley. Why do I think the answer would not be ‘getting Rickrolled’?

  • weez7

    I would talk to that Jesus fella. I’d ask him to come back and stay longer this time. And bring friends. Oh, and I would ask him to do his Christopher Walken impression. I hear it’s dead on.

  • tacehtxilef

    if I could video chat with anyone, it would be with my deceased father and we would talk about the reasons he deserted our family while we were at such a young age.

  • Chris M

    I’d pick Guglielmo Marconi if I spoke even rudimentary Italian. Imagine video-chatting with the father of long distance radio transmission! But I don’t, so I would pick Philo Farnsworth. Could he have even imagined two-way live video on a handheld device? It’d blow his mind! That would be the interview of the century…well, for us techno-geeks, anyway.

    I would video chat with Tiny Tim because all under privileged kids deserve a tablet. Not that I am hinting at my own under privileged life (but I kind of am). I would give him the most important lesson of life: don’t wait for the handout from the rich guy…just break into his place and take it while he is out galavanting with ghosts.

    If I could tale over Skype to anyone I would choose to talk directly with Bill Gates to enjoy such wonderful session .

  • mail80

    I would video chat with Google n ask why the heck fragmentation was introduced at first place and why fixed it later? 1. Is it to increase sales figures or 2. just not enough competency. My best bet would be point 1.

    I would Skype with the future inventor of faster than light travel. Then I’d totally pollute the time line by getting that technology here now. I have star systems to see people!

  • OneFusion

    It would have to be Steve Jobs. As much as I despise Apple, what Jobs was able to do with Apple and their products will never be matched. He didn’t create a product, he created a brand. He wasn’t just a great mind, he was a great man.

  • Kolx

    i would chat with you AndroidGuys while you reading this comments. Should be funny.

  • coggy9

    Twilight Sparkle. We would talk about books, or building a portal.

    I would love to Skype with a younger version of myself. I’d love say that it’s okay to be who you want to be and pursue the dreams you want to dream. My life would be so much different now if I knew then what I know now. Where are Bill and Ted when I need them?! :)

  • Anoop CH

    I would like to talk to GOD and discuss about living peacefully. I would also ask him why he created soo much difference among us.

    Ray Bradbury. Someone needs to know where the eight-legged Mechanical Hounds are secretly manufactured.

  • Matt Tabor

    I would love to Skype with Douglas Adams.. just to pick his brain about SF writing, & bringing comedy into it (or vice versa..).

  • Sean Rector

    If I could Skype with any one, it would be John Clark (Tom Clancy
    novels) – I want to know all his stories – and what Portagee’s coffee
    recipe is.

  • http://moonbooks.net Brandon Mullins

    I would Skype with Steve Jobs, and see what he thinks of the new lower priced, high powered Android tablets that are becoming increasingly popular…
