by Kevin Krause on December 20th, 2011 at 3:56 pm
If you’re unsure what this whole "Holidroid Contest" thing is all about, be prepared to get excited. From November 24th through December 25th, Phandroid is giving away a Kindle Fire every single day along with other great prizes like the Galaxy Nexus Galaxy Tabs, JAMBOX, SmarTouch Gloves, Android Phones, Android T-Shirts, Seidio Vouchers and more. Read our announcement post for details.
Yesterday we asked you to answer a Phandroid
trivia question. Hung V. was the first to correctly identify Chris Chavez’s Labyrinth score at Google I/O. It was 3. Congratulations to Hung who will receive a number of great prizes. For the rest of you, here is a look at what could be won today:
Amazon Kindle Fire
The Kindle Fire
could be this holiday’s hottest product: at only $199
it’s not only one of the most affordable Android tablets, it’s also one of the best. That’s a killer combination. With a beautiful UI, great battery life, carefully curated apps/games, and an amazing array of media options thanks to Amazon’s Digital Content Ecosystem... the Kindle Fire is a sure win. Good luck winning one in our contest, but at only $199 it’s probably worth buying one just in case
Sony Tablet S
Sony’s penchant for excellently styled hardware meets the functionality of Android 3.0 to create a top notch tablet experience. The focus here is on media and gaming, and access to Sony’s PlayStation Suite along with the ability to control other home entertainment devices via the Tablet S make it a great living room companion. Powered by the dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, Sony’s slate can handle just about anything you throw at it.
Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves
Every single holiday season these SmarTouch smartphone gloves
are consistently one of my favorite gift giving items. They eloquently solve one of the most fundamental problems a tech lover faces: using your device in cold weather. Wearing gloves usually prevents your touchscreen from working: take your phone out, take your glove off, use your phone, hand gets gold, shove phone in pocket, rush to get glove on. NO MORE! Isotoner’s SmarTouch gloves, designed in my colors and sizes for both men and women, has technology that passes the electrons your body gives off, through the gloves, onto the capacitive screen and allowing it to work. VOILA! Seriously. It works. Trust me. Try it... and you’ll love them forever.
Andy Robot T-Shirt
True Android enthusiasts and tech lovers enjoy expressing their Android attitude and there is no better way to do so then with an Android Robot T-Shirt from the brilliant folks at iSteamAndy. They’ve created a series of artistic, creative Android Robot themed T-shirts with fun, rich imagery. They sell like hotcakes and have limited production runs so get each design while you still can. Some of their top designs (and ones we’re giving away) include: Dark Night Andy
, iSteam Andy
, Exploded Andy
, Andy Verus
, and Unstoppable Andy
. Check out
ZeeMote Bluetooth Game Controller
The Zeemote Bluetooth Game Controller
compacts things into one comfortable, ergonomically sound gaming package. You use one hand and the controller has an analog stick with four action buttons on it. It’s a bit reminiscent of a Nintendo Wiimote – makes you wonder where the name was inspired from. There are many games in the Android Market
already compatible with the Zeemote, including the popular title R-Type
, and you may even be able to use it with some of your emulators. It goes perfectly with many Android devices, from 3.2 inch phones to 10.1 inch tablets. And if you want the ultimate gaming experience, Zeemote + Phone/Tablet + TV + HDMI-out = awesome.
Seidio $30 Voucher
With so much smartphone use comes battery drain. Thankfully, Seidio makes some awesome extended batteries that fit many smartphones, allowing you to get longer battery life with the same device. No more toting around a charger everywhere you go: just snag a Seidio and call it a day! Seidio also makes cases, holsters, and other great accessories for your smartphones.Check them all out here
