ANDROIDGUYS GIVEAWAY! Win a Nexus 7, HTC One X, and Transformer Pad!


UPDATE: Winners have been announced – Congrats to all three!  Thank you to everyone who participated, we’ve got plenty of good stuff coming soon!

It’s back-to-school season and we could think of no better excuse to put together our latest, and best, giveaway.  We’ve got a trio of wonderful goodies for you guys and gals, thanks to our most gracious friends at NVIDIA.  As you likely saw from the headline, we have an HTC One X (unlocked), a Nexus 7, and an Asus Transformer Pad (with dock) to give out.  Yep – each and every one of these bad boys is cutting-edge stuff powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor.

We’re big fans of NVIDIA here at AndroidGuys and have really come to appreciate the performance that comes with their mobile processors.  If you’ve ever experienced a game optimized for the Tegra 3 then you know why we love them so much.  Haven’t tried anything yet?  Get to the TegraZone right now and download a few, we’ll wait.  If we could recommend a few to start, check out Riptide GP, Backbreaker THD, and SHADOWGUN. That is, of course, provided you love stuff like particle effects, real-life physics, and gorgeous lighting effect.


There are three ways to win one of these devices

  1. Log in below and leave a comment.  Say what ya want, but we’d love to hear what device you have your eyes on.  Duplicate entries will be omitted and tossed out so don’t bother gaming us.
  2. Follow AndroidGuys on Facebook and “Like” this post.  We can’t tell you what to do, but we’d appreciate if you shared it as well.
  3. Follow AndroidGuys on Twitter and tweet “I wanna win a Tegra 3 device from @androidguys and @nvidiategra #AGTegra3“.  Tweet as often as you’d like, we won’t hold that one against ya.

We will randomly draw a winner from each of those three options on September 1, 2012.  If you do not respond within 48 hours of notification then we will have to move on to the next person.

Small, and unavoidable, stuff we have to disclose: Contest is open to U.S. residents only. One winner will receive one (1) brand new Google Nexus 7 ($200 value), one winner will receive a brand new HTC One X ($500 value), and one will receive a brand new Asus Transformer Pad and Mobile Dock ($550 value). These are promotional giveaways and neither AndroidGuys nor NVIDIA are responsible for warranties, customer service, or repairs.  Each device comes with its own manufacturer warranty.

Reminder – entries can be submitted until August 31, 2012 at 11:59PM EST



  1. lets see… I want the nexus 7 for my parents, the transformer with dock for my girlfriend, and the one x for me… sounds like a plan…

  2. Android rules and ios drools!! I have my eyes on the Asus Transformer Pad (with dock) been dying to have an Android Tablet. I have an Asus laptop and love it, an Asus Transformer Pad (with dock) would be awesome!!!

  3. I actually have a Google Nexus 7 already, and am in love with it. I’d love a Transformer, though, for work purposes. The HTC One X would be nice, too, simply because I could use a phone for personal use (my company pays for a business phone). Great giveaway, though! Keep it up!

  4. I own two N7s in the family at the moment but I love HTC hardware ever since I got my N1, but since Samsung has been making all the Nexus phones since then I haven’t had one since. I’d love to have a One X with CM10 on it

  5. I would personally love to have the Nexus 7, but I would take any item to be honest. I would like to make custom ROMS for the Nexus 7 and see what else I can do to better it.

  6. All three of these devices are awesome!! but if I really had to choose one I’d go with the HTC One X since I just so happen to need a new phone 🙂 Thanks!

  7. I know the Samboyz love the Galaxy S3 but the HTC One X is the superior phone. I think it’s obvious what prize I’d choose if I win 😉

  8. If I was blessed with the chance of winning a device I would love to win the nexus 7. That’s better than winning the lottery because money dont make some one happy like me ..I prefer the nexus 7 or any of the 3 devices cuz they are all great and they’re the best of the best ..God bless you all

  9. I would be bless with any of the devices.. baggers beggars can’t be choosey. I will luv any of the 4.. I hope I finally get to win a tablet or phone. I have never won anything and hopefully this will be my lucky day…God bless you and your family ..

  10. These are all great devices, but I would have to say I would be most interested in getting my hands on the HTC One X. I have not played with one of those yet and it looks like a great phone!

    Good Luck to all who enter!

  11. I would love for Android Guys to hook me up with the Tegra 3 powered Nexus 7. I’ve heard great things about it since it was announced straight from you guys, and the Motorola Xoom I currently have is not exactly a “bleeding edge” device right now. Look out for me Android Guys!

  12. I would absolutely love to win the Nexus 7 for myself and the HTC One X for my daughter who will be leaving for college soon.

  13. I’d love a Nexus 7 or the transformer, Both would be excellent devices to learn with 😀 Good luck to all who enter!

  14. Honestly, can’t decide which I’d be more geeked for: the Nexus or the Transformer. I’m more a 10″ tablet guy, but, as a prize, I could possibly geek out more over the power packed in that 7″.

  15. they are all amazing but i’d love the one x! my phone has been on the outs for a while and i can’t afford a new one

  16. I would love to have any one of these devices! I am always on my Note or A500 as it is, but now my wife is always wanting my tablet.

  17. I’d really like the Transformer! Nexus 7 would be great, but maybe a little lacking for what I would want from a tablet.

  18. Wow! If it came down to the unlocked One X, my son would steal it because he’s headed to college and doesn’t know who has the best coverage on campus. Either tablet would be mine, mine, mine!

  19. I really really want a Nexus tablet to replace my never updated Samsung Galaxy Tab and G2 phone. This will be a great start.

  20. Aside from winning a Nexus 7 it’s going to be near impossible for me to convince my wife that I “need” one. So, if you’d wouldn’t mind please choose me for the Nexus 7! (Yes I know names will be drawn randomly)

  21. Hard to choose… On one hand I prefer the 10.1 form factor, and the keyboard dock is pretty cool, but on the other hand the Nexus is a Nexus (also the One X is the best current smartphone imho but I need a tablet more than a new phone). If I really had to choose I would take the Transformer Pad, but all three are pretty awesome devices.

  22. Well they all look f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c. . . but if I had to choose just one, it would be the ASUS Transformer pad.

    At my house, dropped calls are the norm,
    Which in my head builds a dark angry storm.
    Guess I’ll chuck the smart phone,
    but so I’m not all alone,
    Send ASUS tab & my life will tranform!

    . . . best I could do short notice 🙂

  23. I think the One X or Nexus 7 would be my choice, I’m not really sure which I would benefit from more, I already have a Transformer pad with dock, and a Galaxy Nexus, so it would be a tough choice.

  24. That is very hard to choose. I think the Transformer Pad would be my choice. Not on AT&T so the One X is off the table right away. I prefer the 10.1 inch form factor.

  25. One X is wasted on AT&T’s lousy service here; Nexus 7 lacks hdmi out or removable memory. It’s a no brainer, I’ll take the Asus Transformer, please!

  26. I’ve got my eye on either the Nexus 7, or the ASUS Transformer Pad. My wife was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and would have a great need of either of these devices for doing some naturopathic research so she won’t have to go through chemo or radiation… (not looking for sympathy, just giving the reason why I’m wanting a tablet) Thanks! I’ve got my fingers crossed!

  27. Not sure the other post actually posted (login trouble and I tried to post as a guest)so here it is again:
    These NVIDIA Teg3 devices all look f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c! If I had to choose but one, it would be the Transformer tablet, with a dock no less!

    At my house dropped calls are the norm.
    So in my head builds a dark angry storm.
    Guess I’ll chuck the smart phone,
    But so I’m not all alone,
    Send ASUS pad, my life will transform!

    . . . best I could do short notice :).

  28. I’d love to get my hands on the new Nexus 7! I’m stuck with an old EVO 4G and, Jelly Bean on my end sucks as of now! Also never tried a quad-core tablet… Thanks AndroidGuys for this awesome giveaway, and good luck everyone! 😀

  29. These back to school giveaways are great! I’d say the One X is what I want most, but no way I’m switching to AT&T. Either tablet will make me equally happy. 🙂

  30. Throwing my hat in the ring. All three prizes are great but I think I’d go with the Nexus 7 for access to JellyBean.

  31. Getting my hands on a Nexus 7 would round out my collection of this generation of Nexus devices. I already have the Galaxy Nexus as my daily driver phone.

  32. I’ve always been curious about the Transformer with its dock. It seems like the most multi-functional tablet device one could get. With all the ports and ridiculous battery-life? With the Chrome browser? It could easily replace my old laptop running on a celeron processor (and render websites faster, I’m sure).

    That said, they are all pretty nice. Couldn’t go wrong with any of them.

  33. I’d love to win one! I have never won anything in a contest drawing like this, and it would be refreshing to actually win something. Thanks!

  34. I really have my eye on that nexus 7 furrrr surrreeee. Hey AndroidGuys, real talk; thanks for the opportunity to win such an amazing prize pack.

  35. Man, would I love that One X. I’m a huge Android guy and unfortunately am still rocking the Galaxy S (definitely have done some mods but still). Hook a homie up, I’ll [email protected] ….. just playing.

  36. Groovy. Given the choice, I’d probably go for the transformer. Probably wouldn’t say no to the One X either, since it’s the ‘proper’ version, and not the mangled mess AT&T have come up with.

  37. I am in great need of an unlocked Android phone, now that I’m out of contract, I need a phone for T Mobile’s monthly 4G plan, so this would would be perfect. Of course, a nexus 7 or Transformer Pad would be awesome as well, so thanks for this great giveaway

  38. I would love to have that transformer. It kicks serious a$$ over the [email protected]

  39. I would love to have the transformer, I would use it to code at school via ssh it would help out to have such a portable long lasting device

  40. Would love to have any one of them. I am not picky. Though if you make me choose it would be either tablet. Ok, ok, the Transformer. Geez.Seriously though. I would take any of them.

  41. Transformer would be my first chose but the Nexus 7 is nice as well. I just want a tablet bad, just not in the budget currently 😉

  42. I’ve tried multiple times to integrate a tablet into my digital lifestyle. I think it’s because I’ve always gone with a 10″ form factor. Lets see if 7″ is the sweet spot.

  43. I have an HTC Thunderbolt and seriously need a new phone I would love the HTC One X, but honestly any of these awesome prizes would be much appreciated. Hopefully I can win any of these!

  44. Well of course I want to win a Tegra 3 device from androidguys and nvidiategra – I am not crazy; despite the constant comments suggesting otherwise “-)
    I must confess that i will probably keep the new device – and give my existing phone to one of my trainees at Laugh Cafe in Hoi An Vietnam. We teach young Vietnamese people how to run a restaurant so that their life choices are improved. MAD Indochina is the charity.

  45. I’ve been absolutely Craving that Nexus 7 ever since I first heard of it (rumored) last year. I could really use one of these to help me finish college and break into the Android Development world.

    I would also take the Transformer… but that Nexus…. That’s just so cool and versatile

  46. Man, the Transformer with dock makes sense, but so does the Nexus 7 for while I am traveling through and working in Egypt. The Nexus 7 would be smaller and more convenient.

  47. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated if I received the Asus Transformer Pad with dock. I have always wanted a tablet. This would be a life changing experience for me.

  48. Excellent! Thanks for another great giveaway. Asus Transformer pad and dock please. [I really need a new phone as my Nexus One is a little long in the tooth, but the One X would be crippled on T-Mobile; sigh. BUT, my wife could use the Transformer for work and I could then use the money budgeted for a tablet to get either a Samsung Galaxy S3, or the next big thing:)]

  49. I really want a nexus 7 it seems asowme with android 4.1 google now ( like siri) with nindva tegra 3 prosessor 1.2 ghz htc one x would be good to

  50. Really cool contest, AndroidGuys! It allowed me to discover this site, follow you on Twitter, etc. I would really love to win a Nexus 7. I’ve been eying it for a while and would love to experience Jelly Bean, as well as Android on a tablet–which I have yet to do. Fingers crossed!

  51. Too bad the HTC one x isn’t on sprint. Could use an update to my epic 4g even though I did just update to cyanogenmod 9 stable. I would love the transformer pad with dock. I kinda have a thing for physical keyboards

  52. I’d love to get my hands on the HTC One X, though truth be told, I’d be thrilled with any one of the prizes. Great giveaway!

  53. Since I have verizon, I don’t know how well that One X would work for me but I would love to win that Transformer though. Awesome contest.

  54. If I won the Nexus 7 I would spontaneously combust with excitement. But once I was pieced back together and successfully went through many years of rehabilitation, I would fire up my Nexus 7 and would be quite happy. Quite happy indeed.

  57. Hey guys. I actually need the nexus 7 or the transformer Tablet. My old hand me down windows xp laptop just forgot it’s purpose and quit working. I’m getting a new job and I need the internet. Please guys. Choose me.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  58. Count me in! I’d favor the Nexus 7, but wouldn’t refuse the Transformer Pad. Either would be super for playing Galaxy on Fire 2 THD, the best space sim on Google Play for Android with Tegra!

  59. incredible giveaway. would love either of the Asus products, the Transformer or the Nexus 7. Seeing as it’s a giveaway if I were lucky enough I totally wouldn’t be picky!

  60. Awesome give away. Thanks for the opportunity. Any one of the three would be great! The tablets for the two girls going into college this year or the One X for my wife who’s phone is a poc.

  61. I would love to win the HTC and surprise my husband with it since I washed his phone last week and killed it. >.< I know I should have checked his pockets. Who leaves their phone in their pocket and puts it in the laundry basket?! lol

  62. Wow, not sure which of the 3 I would prefer….

    I guess since I already have a Nexus 7 and I am currently locked in with Verizon with a RAZR Maxx, I would lean toward the Asus Transformer Pad…..
    Although, maybe another Nexus 7 wouldn’t be so bad, then the woman might stop molesting mine if she had her own.

    Soooo, Asus Transformer pad w/ dock.

    I would happily accept any of the 3 if I win though.

  63. Global website – competition only open to the US!!!! Come on guys – i know you might find this hard to believe, but the US isn’t the only place in the world. In fact you’re quite a small part of it. Disgruntled in Europe!

  64. I would love to win the Nexus 7 tablet for my daughters birthday. my names for fb and Twitter is Anne Hill and @yesgodcan.

  65. 1) Asus Transformer – Computer/tablet? No-brainer with the benchmarks.
    2) Nexus 7 – I’d flash it the day I got it. Never had a tablet yet, looks oh so sweet.
    3) HTC One X – Because I’m still happy with my aokp’d Galaxy S2

  66. I’d be extremely happy with all 3 of these devices. In fact, I’d probably have to quit my job and start flashing them full-time! Sounds like a plan… Pick me!

  67. I’d take any of the three, but I’d probably use the Asus Transformer Pad the most. Although it would be really nice if the Asus PadFone were to be upgraded to Tegra 3 with LTE.

  68. All about the Transformer of the Nexus 7 here. I kinda feel bad for the HTC One. It’s a very nice phone but HTC really needs to get in touch with what makes consumers salivate. They’re a little lost as of late. Hoping I win.

  69. Me, I’d really love an unlocked One X, since I actually like HTC products (once you get rid of the Sense junk). A Nexus 7 would be a wonderful addition to my arsenal. Already have a TP, so I hope someone else wins it and enjoys it.

  70. I already have a transformer, so the Nexus 7 would be nice. I really would love the one x, but I am on verizon and probably wouldn’t sign on to another carrier. But I could use it one WiFi!

  71. I’d love the Nexus 7! I have an HTC Rezound. I love the hardware, but the developer support doesn’t seem as strong as it was for my old Incredible. CyanogenMod doesn’t support the Rezound! That’s about the only reason I’d want a different phone right now.

  72. I would love to win the Nexus 7! I am going to start doing some development and do not wanna ruin my phone in the process. Also it would be nice to be able to take my heavy school books with me in one light package.

  73. I’ve been looking at the Nexus 7, but would certainly love an HTC One X as a development platform for my mobile apps.

  74. Honestly, i have my eye on the Transformer tablet. Being in college and having a crappy computer that overheats all the time is no fun, especially when you don’t have money to fix it or buy a new one. I would love to let the Transformer take a major load of my laptop and maybe even become my main device. Now the Nexus 7 and One X are GREAT devices, but I spy with my little eyes, the Transformer Pad

  75. if i were to win the x one would be awesome since my current phone is freaking out on me and wont allow for caps or punctuation other than periods. its weird. if not that i would love the nexus because it would be more portable.

  76. I’m a big fan of the transformer series of android tablets …but could never afford to buy one ….so fingers crossed …hope I win one instead.

  77. I have a Nexus 7 and it is awesome , the best tablet I have ever used. Dont know if the Transformer pad could give me any more joy but really want one or another Nexus 7 for my wife because I am not giving up my Nexus 7 even if I win the prime. GREAT contest guys, I give you 10 stars and a lot of respect.

  78. these are all amazing devices 🙁 it’s hard to choose which one i like better. HTC has always had amazing feel to the phone. Samsung needs to up their SAMOLED tech man

  79. u really hope to win a nexus 7 (or asus transformer). i wanted to get an android tablet for so long now and i think nexus 7 is the ideal tablet for everyday use.

  80. Although I stand a better chance of being struck by lighting, I stand in the path of the storm casting all fear aside. Raising my hand in the wind I declare, “I want to win that Nexus 7!”

  81. Not knowing which Transformer Pad that is (and I’m too lazy to search beyond the official post) I’d have to say I’ll take the Nexus 7 please. =)

  82. I’ve had my eye on the Nexus 7 since i first heard about it. I don’t really have the scratch to spare unfortunately, times are really tight. If I don’t win it I’m just going to try to convince all my friends to pitch in to get me one.. haha.

  83. Well, I don’t have a Facebook.. can I still be entered if I tweet and follow you guys? 😛

    Honestly, I’ve been after the Asus transformer since the first version came out.. I always thought it was pretty nice looking and I love how the keyboard can be attached and… well, unattached. It seems it might be strong enough to serve as a laptop, which is pretty much what I’m looking for in a tablet.

  84. I love contests. Hopefully I can win one for a change! What I’d most love to own would be the One X. I’ve seen the Super LCD 2 display in person and it is a stunner. I’d also like to have the Transformer Pad with it’s also great display, but a phone would be more useful.

  85. The Asus Transformer Pad would probably be the device I’d like the most as it’s a suitable laptop replacement while having an extraordinarily long battery life.

  86. The Transformer Pad has my eye for a laptop replacement for the wife (and convert her from iOS), but also I love the idea of Tegra3 in the N7.

  87. I would love to get my hands on the Nexus 7, it’s so portable yet powerful! ohh I wanna play Shadowgun THD on it so bad!


  88. Been looking for a GSM phone. I’m trying to switch out of Sprint. The service is just awful in Columbus, and with no sign of LTE in the immediate future, it’s just not worth the wait. The N7 would be nice too! 🙂

  89. Yet another contest and yet another try. I love the nexus for price and the product. Or is it just because it just will fullfil my immediate needs! By the way i like the Transformer too. For the time being i guess i can afford to buy a nexus in 6 months if i save enough!

  90. That htc one x has me drooling but at the same time the transformer pad just got updated to teh JELLY BEAN!!!!!!!! i would love both but if i had to chose i would take htc one x as a phone in most cases is going to be much more used than a tablet.

  91. I’d love to win the unlocked HTC! People always ask me, “Is that a smart phone?” My response is, “No, unfortunately it needs tutoring!” The Nexus looks great, too ~ so either one. Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win!

  92. I would love to win the Googl Nexus 7. It makes all ther 7inch tablets look like rookies. It has one of the fastest processors in the mini tablet world. Tgfg(thank god for google)

  93. I’m so far behind on tech stuff, and the Nexus 7 seems like a dream for me to dip my toes back in to the waters of modern life. I’m anxious to try this device and stop being made fun of by my friends.
