Contest: Win an Acer Iconia 16GB WiFi Tablet!

Update:  Winner chosen here!

Day 3 of Reader Appreciation Week is here and we’re ready to give away another Honeycomb tablet to one of our amazing DL readers.  This time we’ve got the Acer Iconia Tab, a 16GB, Tegra 2, dual-camera, WiFi beast that many people have been sleeping on.  We all know that the Asus Transformer and XOOM are top notch, but the Acer hasn’t been getting enough press, which is a shame.  The device is easily rooted with Gingerbreak, is starting to build up quite the following in various forums, and should get Android 3.1 in June.  So who wants it?  

To enter you must do one of the following (U.S. residents only again):

1a.  Follow us on Twitter and tweet the following:

Win an Acer Iconia Tab from @droid_life! Details here – http://goo.gl/RS1wt #dlacer #android

1b.  In the comments, remind us why Android is in your life.
2.  The entry period will run from today (May 25) until tomorrow (May 26) at 2PM Pacific.
3.  A winner will randomly be chosen and notified.  They will have 2 days to respond.

Good luck everyone!

And be sure to keep up with all of the action Tato has going on over at the Facebook page.  We’ve got all sorts of extra goodies to continue to give away.  Three full days left of giveaway madness…everyone holding up OK?

    I use a phone everyday. Its with me wherever I go. My phone of choice runs Android. The Google services integration is incredible. Its a platform that went from the underdog to the champ. Its about choice and freedom. That’s why I have Android in my life.

    Android entered my life two weeks ago.  I upgraded from a Blackberry to DroidX and haven’t looked back once.  Add a Nook Color to my device ensemble rooted with CM7.  Can’t get enough of this OS.

    Android is my life, its my social outlet, allows me to find substitute teacher jobs which is my livelihood. Android also gives me something to do in my freetime, total customization!! Certainly leaves my iphone fanboy friends something to be jealous of!

  • Aaronmweiner

    Android is in my life because i need a smartphone that works. But i need a device that works hard and plays hard. I want flash and google maps and customizability. In short, im on android because there is nothing else out there that can do everything that android can. And now that its in my life i will never let it leave.

    Android is the revolution I’ve been waiting for free from the shackles of a mega corporation who’s only drive is profit.  It allows me to do what I want when I want and tailor my device for my needs without being nickeled and dimed for it while also being at the forefront of technology and capability.

    I have been a die-hard Verizon and Android supporter. I was forced to start doing i*hone development at my old job and I become an iPhone-hater. With the release of the original Droid on Android, I immediately went and purchased one at retail price since I didn’t have a renewal. I am so glad I did. Now I’m a huge android developer and I love Google and still despise the Apple.

    Android is my life for many reasons. First i sit and refresh Droid-Life’s website incessantly waiting for new android news and my next obsession. I had an iPhone first and while it was the most polished cell phone i had ever seen at the time there was something missing. What was missing was freedom. The freedom to create and express yourself. Android has acted as fine art for the electronics world and it allows me to express my passion for electronics by doing more than buying a $200 cliche, but by using my head and my heart.

    Android is in my life for the same reason as a PC is in my life and not a Mac. I’ve worked with both (Android/iOS and PC/Mac) and while I do appreciate Apple’s approach of consistency in design and ease of use, I prefer the Android OS because it allows me the most flexibility to do what I WANT to do, not what something (or someone) else limits me to “for my own good.”

    Just under three years ago I was perfectly happy rockin my Motorola V555 dumbphone. My girlfriend at the time wanted a “smartphone” “cause it was pretty.” My argument was that I’ve had my V555 forever it worked for whatever I wanted it to do and we didn’t really need smartphones. She persisted and ordered the HTC PPC6700 from ebay. She walked into Bestbuy and in her best techie voice asked to the see the “HTC P P C 6700″ she then told the clerk that she “just wanted to see it” as she had already ordered one. She hated the thing and had problems with I think the PRLs loading right and staying set right. I was victorious with my Moto V555 – “see you don’t need the headaches of that smartphone stuff.”  A few months later I was ready for an upgrade – and reluctantly was talked into the Blackberry Curve 8330.  (OG Droid wasn’t even out yet)  I LOVED THIS thing!! Played on Crackberry almost daily downloaded a few apps and it was the frequent go to phone in the car – streaming music on road trips – google maps – we could even find the closest Applebees when traveling (Couple Retreat Reference).  She stayed on my blackberry and eventually got one herself.  Last year I started looking at upgrading and got the droid incredible.  Haven’t looked back since – We’ve moved from Crackberry to Android Forums and Droid life.  It was like this big bright light came on and I could hear angels singing…this was it! For a brief momemt of insanity I even joined those other forums that have several hundreds of pages in one topic discussing it’s release. I’ve posted a few times and shared my excitement with my now wife. – “Oh look honey check out this video of the Sense UI built in to it” – “look at this friendstream app” “look at this app I found that will remind you to get the milk when the GPS senses that you are at the grocery store” …”it even has TV out and there is an app from Direct TV that will allow me to watch the football games this year.” She has been nothing but supportive and equally excited …”which is better Ghost Armor or Zagg” – “where do you get the cable for the TV out and how do we add the extra part of the Sunday Ticket.” “any accessories you can hold off till father’s day?”  She eventually got a Droid Incredible as well. 
     
    Well this insanity has started all over again.  Last week I was able to pick up the Transformer.  She wants her own home screens all pink and frilly.  Wants to bookmark all her chick websites, etc.  I can share but please with this contest I wouldn’t have to!  We haven’t even began to talk about our 11 year old step-daughter who we love dearly but thinks what is ours is hers.  Without another tablet I’ll be stuck watching family movies, wife playing bubble pop and surfing her websites. 
     
    Android’s openness ability to change homescreens, customize, available apps is why android is still in our life.  And not only in our life but why we strongly advocate to family and friends who debate between the ipad and android.

    Android has allowed me to combine work, play and family. Music, business, education, reading, movies, all sorts of apps in one device. Too many to list. But an integral part of daily life.
