I'm kind of new to the whole phandroid contest thing so I was wondering if it usually takes this long for a contest to end.

Still havent seen any mention of the winning number on this one. I'm going to treat this as a "Dont call us we'll call you" situation and since I wasnt notified I'll take it I didnt win... But whoever won...CONGRATS and thx again for the contest(s)...

From the original contest announcement:

Quote:
Every single day from November 24th through December 25th we’re giving away a Kindle Fire from Amazon.com along with a ton of other amazing goodies. Our prize pouch is Mary Poppins deep: 31 Kindle Fires, 10 Galaxy Nexus, 10 Galaxy Tabs, 4 NVIDIA powered tablets, and a bunch of phones and accessories that even Santa would envy.
Quote:
Amazon Kindle Fire (Quantity: 31 – one each day!)
Quote:
Today’s Contest!
Because we want EVERYONE to know about our contest… today it will be a little bit different. We’re going to have THREE winners and each winner will get a Kindle Fire (and only a Kindle Fire).
My comment on that same day was:

Quote:
Somebody needs to look at the math on this. November 24 through December 25 (inclusive) is 32 days, not 31. Add in the extra 2 winners on November 24, and you've got 34 winners, and only 31 Kindle Fires.
My guess is that they've already named more winners than they have prizes to award,and they're either wondering what to do, or ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away.

I'm sure they would have planned ahead and the 25th was one of the biggest give away. Maybe they are busy with the holidays or maybe they are checking to make sure people are not cheating with multiple accounts.

Feels like as long as they haven't announced a number, I still have a chance of winning

Answer: 3226

3rd: aj34 - 3257
2nd: solid-s-1117 - 3239
1st: otisfeelgood - 3236

After deadline: pickfr 3233

Results are pretty close. Sorry pickfr, you were answered it on Christmas you would have won. My answer was way off lol. Congratz otisfeelgood.

(these answer were picked through on the forums. No idea if any of them are multiple accounts.)

*edit: otisfeelgood has only 1 post (in this thread) and has not logged into androidforums.com since the 27th. The twitter feed he has listed looks like a repost of everything that Phandroid posts about. Bad account?
