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?

    Since getting my Moto Droid 2 years ago, I can’t say enough about Android. I was originally just biding my time till that fruity phone came over to Big Red, but now I don’t think I’ll ever change. The apps, the options, there is just so much that Android and Google are doing right.

    Android is my life because I use it for home, work, and play. I have used my Android powered phone on deployments across the world, it has kept me connected with the friends and family I don’t get to see everyday, and has enabled me to find friendships that surely will last a lifetime. Android rekindled my love for writing (I write articles for many sites), and honestly, its the only thing that’s really also been reliable for me in life.

    Android has freed me from the tyranny of Apple.

    Android is in my life because my wife switched from AT&T right before the Iphone 4 came out. I was pissed, but, I now have an SGS.

    Android is my escape form Apple, which is the main reason it is in my life. I hate the control Apple imposes on their hardware and love the freedom Android gives us.

    Android is in my life because other platforms just didn’t do it for me… I was on Windows Mobile prior to switching to Android and just had to get away from it. The ability to customize my device to my heart’s content and the constant flow of awesome new features from both Google and the dev community make Android a no-brainer to me.

    Android Has been in my life for a short 3 months so far.. but Idon’t think I would be able to go a week without finding it in my hand to search a random fact or to post a comment on FB or dl like so….

    Interface is one of the easiest even if your not computer savvy

    Honestly i was very late to conform to an android… and now I am pushing the movement to everyone I know to not miss out on what is part of so many people’s daily lives

    I love Android! I used to be an Apple/iOS, but after seeing the amazing potential (and reality!) of Android, I’m now a firm believer in Android. I’m getting a Xoom next week!

    Android wakes me up, tells me how to dress for the weather, helps me catch a bus, entertains me on the ride, lets me know what countries are being blowed up today and sometimes gives be a boner which is always welcome. Yes, Android is a part of my life. An intimate part.

    Why android is my life?  I really like to read facebook statuses and my Blackberry was terrrrrrible.  Otherwise, I’m what you would call an anti-power user.

     Android Is in my life because it makes my life easier. Being disabled android allows a lot of features that are unique to what i need for my self . I cant use a laptop they are to bulky and hard for me to carry . I also have to worry about heat from them. So i have to use my phone for pretty much everything. A Tablet would open up so much for me, and allow me to View Droid life with out having to squint , or carry around heavy laptops that get hot.

    I like Android, mostly because it’s got a wide variety of apps and it not Apple.

    Android is in my life because I enjoy having an open smart phone. I will leave Motorola one my next upgrade if the bootloader is still locked but I won’t leave Android.

    Android is my life because no one else is with me 24 hours a day 7 days week 365 days a year. Whenever I go android is with me. She is like my sidekick and bestfriend. Whenever i’m bored android is there to play with me. Whenever I get lost, android is there to get the right driections. I can’t live without Android, simple as that.

    Why is Android my life? Because as a college student, I need everything in one place. I can keep notes on my Droid X, sync them with Evernote or Dropbox and read them wherever I am. It’s my source of communication with family and friends and the outside world with Twitter. Plus, it’s customizable as hell! Who doesn’t want more customization?

    Android is my life because it gives me full control of my mobile experience, I don’t have to worry about a company restricting me to doing only things that they think I should be allowed to do.

    Android is in my life because I love being able to change up the phone occaisionally, not just having a lot of icons on the screen.

    Android is the best system that I have found on a phone. I like the ability to customize, not being locked in by Mr.Jobs.

    Android is in my life because I like to make my own choices about what software does for ME. Not what some other company thinks it should do!

    Android is in my life because of the community. I strongly dislike the communities that are behind the iphone and blackberries. Android has always been an open and friendly community. I hope it continues to stay that way.
