Contest: Enter to Win a 16GB Asus Transformer!

Update:  Winner chosen here!

To kick off our first ever Reader Appreciation Week, we are giving away the Asus Transformer (16GB) which just so happens to be one of the hardest tablets on the planet to get a hold of.  This puppy will show up as “in stock” through an online retailer and disappear within minutes; it’s been wild.  It’s running stock Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), boasts a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 16GB of internal storage, front and back cameras, and one of the nicest 10″ screens you’ll ever see.  Oh, it also has this really nifty keyboard dock (sold separately) that can essentially turn your tablet into a fully working laptop.  Yep, it’s a beast of a tablet – arguably the best on the market today.

So how can you win it? You have to follow just a few simple rules…  

1.  You must be a U.S. resident.
2.  Then follow us on Twitter.
3.  Tweet the following:

.@droid_life is giving away an Asus Transformer 16GB tomorrow!  Check them out –  http://goo.gl/Ud0KZ #android #free #dltransformer

4.  And you are entered!
5.  A winner will be chosen at random from all entrants tomorrow at 2PM Pacific.

Easy enough, right?

Be sure to keep it close though, as we have so many other cool things to give away this week including a XOOM WiFi and an Acer Iconia tablet.  And as we reminded you this morning, subscribing to our feed and following us on Facebook and Twitter is going to set you up to hopefully walk away with some goodies.

Good luck everyone!

    Android not only makes my life better through music and apps, but it’s probably saved my marriage thanks to navigation . . . no more arguing over whether or not we’re lost. Plus, Android pays the bills! (I manage a cell store lol)

    I could use some good news about now… Like maybe that I won this tablet!

  • Mrschains

    Would all of you whiny little bitches please STFU? Have you even bothered to look at the rest of this site? There are numerous contests that don’t require you to be on Twitter. Enter them. All you have to do is comment in the comments section, which you’re already doing now. You want something for free, but you don’t want to help them with their advertising? Grow up. If you are too dense to understand free publicity, then you are definitely too ignorant to own this device. 

  • Rachel Fisk

    Fingers crossed! I think a Droid-Life Appreciation Week is in order after this! 😉

  • GraveHypothesis

    so, I hope the fact that I only tweeted this once will get me a faith bonus from who ever judges.. #isabeliever

  • Greg ✓

    The fact that I’ve tweeted this 209 times since yesterday, been in Twitter jail twice, and lost more followers as a result.. hopefully I win. @ALSHARPTONGUE

    Ironic that I only have Twitter because.of Droid-Life LThey are also the only thing I follow.

  • Chad S

    I dont use twitter, but guess what?!?! I made an account(which took me 2 min) and entered. Some of you people act like little B!tches. Grow the F up. Thanks Droid life for making these contest. Most of us appreciate it.

    • Greg ✓

      Dont tell them nothing man. They’re naive.

  • To all the Twitter-haters… It all depends upon how you use it… for instance:
    I subscribe to news outlets, and local emergency ops (sheriff, state & local emergency, etc.).  This keeps me nearly real time updated on things that are happening….
    Of course I do subscribe to other stuff, but just for the fun of it.  
    My opinion is that if you don’t like it, don’t join, but don’t bash the good people that choose to do “Free Contests” on sites like that because YOU choose not to join.  Twitter is a real easy way to see all posts with hashtags, and a quick way to keep track of who has entered.
    Don’t like it? Don’t do it… leave more for those of us that do.
    Thanks all!!

  • have entered and invited many, many friends to enter also.

  • All those bitching about twitter or about how badly they need to win this should be smacked.  Just stop.  Twitter is free and we all want to win, but stop acting like a douche.

    But why does everything revolve around USA?
    This is also the reason why, i come to this site less.

    • Droidlife focuses on Verizon products for the most part. Verizon is only in the US despite Vodaphone being  a major share holder. Android Life is the sister site and you could get news there that has more of global vibe.

    Twitter Sucks – and is stupid- requing a twitter account reflects poorly on any claim of objectivity from Droid-Life and gives cause to wonder wether their reviews are equally objecitve or based on ad revenue-  kind of like the same attitude where Facebook is selling user data!

  • Enough with the nagging already as if giving away tablets aren’t enough. It’s an event and not like they are asking you to buy the tablet. These days people are so incomprehensible and arrogant. Thanks for hosting the event Droid-life.

    Twitter is useless shit just like facebook.  You can keep your transformer kellex.

    • Okay, so all 800 MILLION Facebook/Twitter users live in their mother’s basements? Yup, definitely.Also, for the people who question how I got that answer, I added up the total number of Twitter users + the total number of Facebook users = 800 Million. 200 Million from Twitter, and 600 Million from Facebook.Flag

        Yup, half of the Facebook accounts are abandoned.  There are 6 billion people in the world, I think it’s safe to say some 500 million of those are losers in their mother’s basement tweeting about going to the bathroom.

        Facebook is only good for contacting old friends.  It’s also a major data mining project that people use to steal your identity, judge you and hire/fire you for as well as stalk you.

  • MK17

  • Luther19

    That is all that need be said.

  • Twitter > Facebook.. and it ain’t even that close..

    Plus, who complains about getting free stuff, from a free website, for shouting out droid-life in twitter land? Where they do that at?

    Thanks tho DL, looking forward to winning this Transformer.

  • What if you allow the additional option of posting the “.@droid_life is giving away an Asus Transformer 16GB tomorrow! Check them out – http://goo.gl/Ud0KZ #android #free #dltransformer” as a Facebook status. Same effect. And as long as the user is already a friend, y’all would receive the notification of being tagged anyhow. Most users have a Facebook, twitter on the other hand….
    with that being said, can this count as my entry??

      I think that his wordpress installation must auto link stuff that looks like twitter and he put the period there to fix it.

      Maybe?

  • For those that are complaining about Twitter, stop it. It’s a great service.  I use it to follow my favorite sites. It’s useful for alerts like NYC_OEM and such. And it’s a great platform for giveaways and a way for the site to get more exposure. Sometimes free things drive people in to a site and they stick with the site even when they don’t win.

    If anything sign up to Twitter for contests and you don’t need to use it until the next one.  Twitter is free so quit your crying. If you don’t want to enter because it’s through Twitter, then we have better chances. END OF STORY.

    So, I have a twitter account I’ve used a sum total of twice – once to follow the Tour de France and once when I was stuck in Belgium due to the volcano last year.  I choose not to use it.

    Would I love the Transformer?  Of course.  Do I want it enough to warrant my dusting off the twitter account and figuring out how to use it?  No.

    Therefore, I know I have no change of winning.  Sucks to be me.

    Listen, when you have your own successful blog where you can give stuff away, then reward people for using anything you want.  He wants to reward people for using twitter?  Good for him.

    FFS, it’s not like it costs anything for any of this.  There’s no subscription fee for this site.  If you don’t like it, don’t read the site – I REALLY doubt he’s going to run twitter-only contests all week.  If you really wanted the Transformer, but don’t/won’t use twitter, well, life’s a bitch sometimes, ain’t it? 🙂

      This contest, and perhaps the ones to follow, are very disingenuous. This site gets all of those items for free. So, they are disguising this as some huge sign of gratitude to the readers, when all it really is is a way for them to get rid of a bunch of stuff they got for free, sitting in a room gathering dust, and get a ton of publicity in the process. Just calling a spade a spade.

        And if it is, so what?  How is it any skin off your back if they want to give away something for free, method notwithstanding, regardless of what (if anything) they paid for it?

    • Darkfyre

      You’re right. Giving you the chance to win a 400 dollar piece of equipment for FREE for 2 seconds of work, maybe 2 minutes, if you have to sign up for Twitter, is terrible of them.

      Of course, once you make the Twitter account, you’re bound by some contract you sign in blood at the time of creation to actually use it and live by it every second of the day from hence forth…OR…you could sign up with a throw away email address, do this, then never look at it again. Ungrateful jerks…

      • Mctypething

        It’s the principle of the matter. Don’t act like you’re doing something out of the good of your heart because you love your readers when it’s just an excuse to get a ton of publicity on twitter. They get all of these things for free anyway. Is the next contest going to be to put “Droid Life is the best website ever!” as your facebook post?

          Plain and simple, if you wanna get something for free from these guys, the LEAST you could do is give em a bit of free advertising. DL is one of the better sources for Android info on the blog-o-sphere, I’m happy to toot their horn a bit for a chance at free swag, but to each their own.

      • Mctypething

        Right. I’m sure these manufacturers aren’t jumping at the chance to have you blog about, review, etc.. their products and gain a ton of market share in the process. Do you honestly expect anyone to believe you paid for these items? Really? 

        • You drastically overestimate Droid-Life’s popularity and attractiveness for manufacturers to pander to. Maybe if this were Android Central you’d have a point, but it’s not.

    shut the phuck up how do you think this site runs on doggy treats No advertising

     It’s free people, remember that. If you don’t want to do what is asked to enter the free contest then don’t, but don’t complain about how someone sets up their contest to give away something, let alone something expensive and highly desired, for free.

  • Anonymous

     Did it then I realized my account is set to private. No chance unless Droid Life follows me, meh.

  • Hopefully they don’t all involve twitter since then ill no chance of winning anything. I spend enough time with facebook to not need to be sucked into twitter.

    As I hardly use twitter hopeully I did it right so I’m entered.  I think it would be easier to do a retweet of something on your page to ensure it works correctly. 

  • Jacobk

    Cluttering up twitter and forcing people to advertise on your behalf is lame. We expect better from you Droid life!

    that was like my 4th tweet ever…….been on twitter for about a year now.

     twitter sucks, not wasting my time, would love the transformer but i would rather spend 400$ then have to join twitter.

    • Eric

      Yeah i would rather keep my dignity then join a fag loving social group.

    • johnny

      wow this is just ridiculous. so youre basically saying you would say no if someone offered you 400 dollars to join twitter….for a week at most? wow.

  • Anonymous

     Erm, you probably shouldn’t have started the post you want people to use with @droid_life. By doing that, Twitter treats it as a direct reply to you and won’t show it to people who follow the person who posted it (unless they are directly looking at that person’s profile page).

    • stu

       i have seen quite a few people posting this already….i follow them all. maybe i misunderstood what you are saying.

      • Anonymous

         Actually, it looks like it’ll also show you the post if you follow both the person who posted it AND the person it’s replying to.

        Unless Twitter completely changed how it works, in which case, I have no idea.

    • Anonymous

      I think that might be the idea. Besides it will show up in the news feeds of anyone that follows you.

      • Anonymous

        It won’t show up in their feeds unless they follow both you and the person you responded to. Try following someone who replies to a lot of people, such as @xboxsupport. You won’t see any of their posts that are replies to other people.

  • Greg ✓

    Kind of a blow due to the fact that copy & paste tweet is so long, it only leaves you 10 characters to even be RT’ed. 

  • Dash Speeds

    Ok, I guess this is worth finally making a twitter account; I’ve put it off for long enough.

    Does it help if you have 5000 followers and get them to retweet it? Follow me. @Alsharptongue

      Come on…nothing wrong with a grown man using Twitter – I love it for keeping up to date for ESPN, CNN, FOX and even my kids school district sends out a message went school is shut down due to weather.  Sure people use it for idiotic reasons like following Justin Bieber but Twitter does have its practical purposes.   —just sayin’—

  • Pete

    So to win this thing I have to spam all of my friends with a message that looks like a phishing hack?  FYI, if that tweet showed up in my twitter feed, or on facebook, or anywhere really, there is a 0% chance that I would click on that short URL.

    • ThievingSix

      If you used twitter you would. Short URL’s are used there because of the small limit of characters per tweet. 

      • Pete

         I know why short urls are used.  They are also commonly used for phishing attacks and viruses because it hides the true address of the link.  Also, I’d unfriend/unfollow anyone that spammed my feed with this kind of junk.  This might be reader appreciation week, but I practice friend appreciation with my feeds all the time.

        • Risenequinox

           Hey pete, all you have to do is hover over the shortened url and in twitter it shows the true URL.. No excuses here.

    • Viper

       well since it starts with @droid_life, wont it only be seen by those that also follow droid_life?

  •  Please guys just dont make like 5K twitter accounts to enter 🙁

      Yes, yes let’s give everyone the idea =P

      • Dave W

        No, it’s not. It’s a messaging service for people with ADHD. The majority of people on Twitter do not have the kind of lives that would make a Twitter feed even remotely interesting.

        This contest is whoring to the max. “@droid_life is making me act like a whore just to enter a silly contest!”.

        • Bdo

          I have a twitter solely for whoring.  And one for actual use. 

        • Anonymous

          I know, right? It’s ridiculous that Droid Life wants to actually get some recognition in exchange for giving away a free tablet. Heck, they owe you a tablet, right, Dave? How dare they make you benefit them for benefitting you! Power to the Proletariat!

          Damned commies.

    • Matt

       Yeah seriously, I don’t want to use twitter.  This site racks up the most refreshes of any in my workday.  You need to at least allow for alternate ways to enter, like facebook, or comments here, I don’t know.  That’s crap.

      • Anonymous

         Then don’t enter? How easy is that? Makes it easier for us, who aren’t complainers and whiners, to win. 🙂

      • Anonymous

        They need to allow alternate ways of entering? Really? Who says?

        As if giving away all these free items wasn’t enough… No one is putting a gun to your head and making you join Twitter.  The contest is free. Twitter is free. If you want to join, use Twitter. Simple.
        Thanks Droid Life! 

        • Matt

           Well said I guess.  I’m not whining or bashing Twitter.  I just don’t use it and don’t want to.  I come here often enough and support the site, as I’m sure others do, that I would just hope the non-twitter-using crowd is kept in mind with these contests.

          • Anonymous

             I’m with you, I don’t want to use twitter. I just made up a fake twitter handle and attached it to one of my throwaway addresses that I use for stuff like this. I don’t have a real twitter account. 

          • CmonNow

             just join twitter to enter the contest and never use it again.. Whats the big deal?   Facebook I can understand, but twitter it really simple and bare bones.

        • Honestly, if I were the guys that put this together, I’d just say “If all of you cool dudes are too
          cool to join a free website and give us a quick shout-out in exchange
          for a $400 tablet, then we’ll just keep it, and the others. Besides,
          cool manly studs like you should be rocking iPads, amirite? After all,
          if Twitter will utterly ruin people’s opinion of you, think of how
          ruined your cool rep will be when people find out you don’t have an
          iPad?”

          • CBJ Da1

            when i think iPAD, i think lazy, uncustomisable (if that is a word), limited, paperweight….

        • Peeps seem to fear Twiitter mainly due to the fact they do not understand it or think its only for the rich and famous. FB is for those that want to stay within their inner circle while for many twitter is an information resource.

          • Anonymous

            I’ve been trying to realize it’s potential half heartedly for awhile now, haven’t really had the time to.  Do you know how to effectively find people or DEVs on the Tweet?

          • Anonymous

            absolutely. That’s really one of my primary reasons for using it- a first hand news source straight from the devs for my devices and favorite apps. Go to a place like XDA and look at the rom developers, etc. Usually their username is also their username on twitter.

         i swore against twitter for the longest time, but i’m getting sick of every contest on every android site being twitterized…so i started a twitter account today, just to enter these contests

        I agree. It is unfair to those who don’t have a Twitter account….

        • PJ

           How is it unfair? It’s not like twitter is a site that you have to pay for.  You have an email address, right? Well you can have a twitter account in under a minute then.  I don’t use twitter, but I made an account to enter this contest. It’s not”unfair” at all that they choose to give away a device for free on a website that is free to use.

      • Why do you think? It’s all about advertisements. It’s not hard to figure out. Make an account.. big woop. 

      • Cb2000a

        Agreed…Twitter is lame. Complete waste of time. Really it’s for twits. 

    • Anonymous

       why do you hate it?

      this is directed towards everyone who just bashes it for the sake of bashing – if youre just going to complain, thats fine but do it on your own terms. what this means for me..less people in the contest therefore a higher chance of winning

      nobody is forcing you to make one but if you want to win, this is what you gotta do. just make one. you dont have to tell your friends and bff4ls that you made it. just do it. get over it.

      • Calculatorwatch

        It’s just kinda stupid cause I literally have no good reason to join twitter other than to enter these contests.

        But I do wanna win so I will make an account just to tweet that and no one will see it or “check them out” cause I don’t have any friends that use twitter.

        Facebook FTW, lol

      •  In all seriousness twitter is pretty lame, however you have to follow the trends in the world. I only have it to follow news because it seems like companies update their twitter(god that word annoys me) more then their actual websites.

         Thank you, and all the neanderthals like you.  You improve my chances of winning. #winning

    • Geekidiot

       Stuff revolves more around FB than Twitter. I do not have a FB account anymore and never will despite many contests, events, etc only being posted there. Stop complaining and deal with it. Create a throwaway account and enter. Or don’t so the rest of us have a better chance of winning.

    • FortitudineVincimus

       I, with a passion, H8 Twitter

      so I guess no chance of me winning

    • Craigg

       I agree with Jak. I typically avoid sites that try to push Twitter and Facebook down their subscribers throats. I have no desire to post my life history on the likes of Facebook like I see so many fools do. There is already enough fraud on the web without advertising for it. While I understand the viral marketing concept I don’t think that Droid-Life should alienate it’s members by forcing them to these sites.

    • Mo

       No everybody likes to tell everyone in the world their business. And so not everyone in the world uses Twitter.

    • A give away is a give away. The fact that they’re doing it is cool enough if you as me. If you want to touch twitter then I guess you’re just not entering.

    • Funny, I was just complaining on another site that they did *not* effectively use twitter. I guess it depends on how you approach forums. I use twitter as a forum aggregater.
