And the Acer Iconia Tab Winner is…

Reader Appreciation Week is just getting nuttier by the day…when we announced the Asus Transformer we had almost 4,000 entries, but the Acer Iconia giveaway is a whole other beast.  We had over 5,700 entries between Twitter and comments, making this our biggest contest yet.  You guys are seriously the best.  So who won it?

Chosen randomly by number, our winner is…  

Garrett S. who had this to say about Android being in his life:

Android has taken up a chunk of my life since i spotted the OG Droid commercial late one night two years ago. I love things that are open to me tinkering with them so Android was the way to go. Now if we could only have more pure google devices.

Congrats dude!

And be sure to stick with us on Twitter and Facebook throughout the rest of the day – we’re going to start tossing out all kinds of stuff.  And then tomorrow, we open up the entry period for our final tablet giveaway, the Motorola XOOM WiFi.

    just want to register my frustration here, I bought one of these recently and even after the 3.1 update I am unable to install anything from Adobe, so no flash no pdf reader. ‘Not available in your country’, seems like a basic oversight and hopefully android marketplace will sort it out quickly. I’ve found numerous complaints like mine from all over the world. Very disappointing stuff.

  • Droid-Life doesn’t like me 🙁 

  • Justin

    my new user name is going to be ..chosen randomly.. so i can finally win

  • I’m going all out to win the Motorola Xoom.  I’ve wanted one of those since before it was released.  I go to the Verizon store just to mess around with it and love it LOL… I just need to know if the picking is going to be from Facebook or Twitter!?

  • It happens. Congrats Dude. Enjoy the tablet. I really would love to win that Xoom. We shall see. Thanks for all of this Droid Life. 

  • Very lucky dude!

        • Nobody is trolling, I’m just sick of hearing you whiny bitches complain about not winning.

          • Anonymous

            You’re commenting the same profane abbriviation on each “I never win” comment. I think that’s trolling.

  • You’re not the only one…

  • tankertough

    II think my comment was better. It had the original Droid motto, “In a world of doesn’t, Droid does.” Plus I think he stole an idea from mine too, talking about the commercials. Oh well, ya win some, ya lose some.

    Congrats Garrett!

    If this whole “not winning a tablet” thing continues, I may have to actually go out and by one myself.

  • Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!

      A couple years ago I won over $20,000 worth of equipment from an online message board. They were having a 100,000th post contest and I won! When it popped up that I won I almost jumped down an entire flight of steps as I was running to tell my wife!   Amazing moment.  Congrats Garrett, I know how you feel!

      • You aren’t supposed to click on pop-ups like that. 

        • Anonymous

          LOL It wasn’t a pop up.  It was an industry related message board having a contest that I was following for some time and trying to keep counts.  I had the 100,000th post and it was posted on the front page that I was the winner. I received it all. It wasn’t just some goofy thing popping up on a web page….
