And the Asus Transformer Winner is…

We kicked off our first ever Reader Appreciation Week yesterday with the announcement that we’d be giving away 3 different tablets:  an Asus Transformer 16GB, Acer Iconia, and Motorola XOOM WiFi.  First up was the Transformer, which is one of (if not the) hottest Honeycomb tablets on the market.  All you had to do to win it was retweet a simple message on Twitter – something almost 4,000 of you did in just over 24 hours.  Pretty remarkable.

So who won?  

@rjskalet

Congrats!

As for the rest of you, the Acer Iconia will go up for grabs tomorrow morning and entry won’t be just limited to Twitter this time.  You’ll want to join us on Twitter and Facebook though to keep up with all of the side contests we have going on!

    I bought one of these from Best Buy.  I loved it the first day, then second day the touch screen would not function so I could not get past lock screen.  Asus support was no help.  Found online others had same problem with no solution.  Sadly,  I returned it to Best Buy, and now can’t find one in stock anywhere.

    like this if you immediately looked up this guy on twitter

    • Stop saying that.  You’re obviously the only person that did that.  Weirdo.

  • Greg ✓

    Kellex, do us all a favor, the next contest…make sure it’s not a twitter contest, but something more creative. Followers thought I was spamming them for helping you advertise…meanwhile you knew your pick seven hours ago since the winner only tweeted it once. But congrats anyway

    • Tabe

      Why were you spamming the tweet? You only had to do it once… One entry no matter how many times you tweeted it.

      • Greg ✓

         That wasn’t apart of the disclaimer. Thought it has to be tweeted consistently. Guess I didnt read the fine print. I know better now.

        • Tabe

          Dunno man. I thought it was pretty clear. Nothing about multiple entries or anything:

          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 #dltransformer4.  And you are entered!
          5.  A winner will be chosen at random from all entrants tomorrow at 2PM Pacific.OH well…

          • Greg ✓

            Yeah that’s what I read. I didnt know you only had to only tweet once. they are saying it said it in the rules [which you posted], and I didnt see it. So now, yes, It looks like spammage after the fact. Wont do again.

    • Anonymous

      what do you mean by “he knew the winner 7 hours ago because he only tweeted it once”

      • Greg ✓

        Dont matter now. What’s done is done. Congratulations.

    • Anonymous

      ” literally tweeted 319 times…for nothing. C’mon now man..”

      Where did it say in the rules that you would increase your chances if spam your followers?  It said post that tweet and you are entered.  It had nothing to do with how many times you tweeted – You deserve to loose every one of your followers for that.

      • Greg ✓

        Thanks guy, appreciate it.

    • Rand

      You tweeted that over 300 times?? hahaha that’s so funny

  • tigerdirect.com has the 32GB in stock now as a bundle… you get the transformer, some headphones and an 8GB additional SD card for $579.. not too bad if you don’t feel like waiting for someone else to get it in stock.

    • That is hilarious.  It clearly said it was not dependent on how many times you retweeted it.  Once and done.
