Default Phandroid Holidroid Contest Question

I was wondering if there is a place where they say that they picked a winner for each of the contests? Has a winner been chosen for any of the contests so far?

I hope that this post doesn't come across as ungrateful, I appreciate the contest. Yes, I know patience is a virtue, but unfortunately it is not a virtue I was graced with.

OK I may be a bit confused. Is this where all the valid entries will be submitted? If so was there really only 1 for today. I saw a bunch under the comments section of the original post but is this the right spot. I am faithfully checking all the time including a long drive today (don't tell the fuzz) and now that I am at a PC there is no way this is it?!!

Happy Holidroid Contest: Secret Image Challenge [Hanukkah Edition]

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’s Winner
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,Flying 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.
Today’s Contest Rules/Regulations:

Today we have another edition of our ‘Secret Image Challenge.’ Today marks the first night of the Jewish Festival of Lights. Be on the lookout for the following Hanukkah-themed image to appear in a Phandroid post later today, and when you do head on over to Android Forums and let us know.
  • Only one post excluding this one will contain the secret image displayed above. It will appear in a news entry with a timestamp following this post but before the end of the day (11:59PM EST)
  • Sign up for a free account at AndroidForums.com
  • Visit this thread on AndroidForums.com and let us know the title and timestamp of the post containing the secret image as a reply. Include the sentence immediately preceding the image and the sentence immediately following it in your post on Android Forums.
  • The first person to find the secret image is the winner.
  • ONE ENTRY PER PERSON, MEANING IF YOU HAVE POSTED SOMETHING THAT IS INTERPRETED BY US TO BE AN ENTRY AND YOU ARE WRONG YOU ARE OUT OF THE RUNNING. Those who are trying to game the system will not have a chance.
  • IF YOUR POST HAS BEEN EDITED AT ANY TIME FOR ANY REASON, THAT ENTRY WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED
  • New users are allowed to make test posts as long as they explicitly state it’s a test. These posts are still subject to the editing rule above.
  • Read our Full Official Rules for information about eligibility
  • This isn’t required but if you want to be nice… Visit Amazon.com by clicking here before you do your holiday shopping because you love us!
Looking for a great gift? Don’t forget about our Holiday Gift Guide!
Tomorrow’s Contest:
We’ll be giving away a Kindle Fire, Smartouch Gloves, $30 Seidio Voucher, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, ZeeMote, and Andy T-Shirt! You never know when we’ll make our contest post so check back early and often!
