Tabletpalooza 2011 Giveaway Week 1: Acer Iconia Tab A500!

July 3, 2011
70

It's that time again, time we give away some sweet gadgets for free, Android Community style! This is our first annual Tabletpalooza giveaway for July 2011, one where we're working with SlashGear and NVIDIA to give you the opportunity to win one of FIVE Tegra 2 dual-core processor tablets, the first of which will be right here on Android Community in the form of an Acer Iconia Tab A500! It's a 10-inch Android tablet that we've had an opportunity to get intimate with in the past - see the review then win it for free!

On SlashGear the first tablet they're giving away in this contest is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - a review of which you can check out right here on Android Community. As for the Acer Iconia Tab A500 we've got for you to win here in our first giveaway week, check out our full review and get fully impressed before you win one in the most excellent rock and roll Android tablet contest this summer, right now!

Now for the rules!

To win one of these fabulous tablets, you must:

1. "like" us on Facebook: facebook.com/androidcommunity.com
2. Comment on the wall so we can see you're connected
3. If you don't already have a G+ account, submit your email and name to Giveaway@SlashGear.com so we can connect to you with Google+!
4. If you've already got a G+ account, add Vincent Nguyen (right here) to your Android Community Circle and share a message with Android Community and Public so we know you're in!

If you do not have early beta access to G+, don't worry, we'll invite you when we get more invites to send out! Double win! Full legal rules lie below:

Contest begins July 3rd, 8AM PST, and ends July 25, 2PM PST barring any complications finding winners. A winner will be announced every Monday (except for the 4th) here in the main news feed and at our official Facebook page.

WINNERS will be given the opportunity to submit a review of their tablet and have it posted on the front page of SlashGear or AndroidCommunity.com! *Reviews may be edited or modified before publication and are considered works for hire under the 1976 Copyright Act. Submissions will be ineligible for payment or remuneration.

Competition is open to residents of the US or UK over the age of 18. One entry per contest per person. Family members of Google and SlashGear/Android Community are not permitted to enter. Competition entries are only accepted via the specified Android Community Facebook page; entries left in the comments section of this or any other post will not be recognized. One entry per person (and yes, we check). Winners of the July 2011 Android Community Tabletpalooza giveaway are ineligible to win the July 2011 SlashGear Tabletpalooza giveaway, and vice-versa.

The winners will be announced on SlashGear and will be expected to contact SlashGear via the following email: Giveaway@SlashGear.com ; they will be expected to respond within 24 hours else their prize may be forfeit and another winner selected. Editors decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Winner agrees that their name and details of their entry may be used for promotional purposes by, but not limited to, NVIDIA, SlashGear, and Android Community.

Prize consists of five NVIDIA Tegra 2-powered tablets to be announced at the start of each weekly contest period, distributed between SlashGear and Android Community. One prize per winner. There is no cash alternative or any other alternative for prize winners unless this prize should become unavailable, in which case SlashGear and NVIDIA reserve the right to substitute another prize of equal or greater value.

Contest provided by SlashGear/Android Community. Prizing provided by NVIDIA. Any questions regarding this contest should be directed to Giveaway@SlashGear.com

AND remember - this is only the first of FIVE tablets we're giving away this month. Stay tuned!

    I think it’s pretty crummy that I HAVE to go through Facebook to enter. That should absolutely NOT be a requirement to enter. Can’t do it. Won’t do it – just on principle. Thought you people were better than this.

    That link to your google+ profile is returning a 404 error. So I can’t do the last step *…

      I got my invite, but it isn’t allowing me to log in. And their profile keeps getting me to a 404 error as well. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=588214987 Phoenix Robles

        Apparently google has gone through and deleted profiles that don’t belong to actual people. They are keeping it limited to individuals, and not allowing businesses, blogs, or other “organizations” make a page until its out of beta *…

        Oh, That’s a shame. I really would like an invite. :-(

      • Gardengate500

        Maybe you shouldn’t go thru FaceBook.

    I need a tablet for sure! I need an eReader but also want a handy mobile web browser, so what’s better than a tablet for that??

    US and UK only?  No Canada?  Just ‘unliked’ you.  Bye now.  Will use other sources for Android info.

  • Michael Keefe

    All steps done… I think. Do I have to setup a specific Android Community Circle? Or is just putting you in “Following” enough… 

    • Joshua Dudash

      I just added Vincent.. I dont think the circle matters but I could be totally wrong there
