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.

    I was so ready to come in here yelling that I never win anything too.(I always feel that after a contest) But for once I did win, and I apologize to all of you out there that wish it was them. I know your pain! (Not any more)

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

             Stop being a whiny b*tch and I won’ tell you to STFU.  Grow some thicker skin.

  • 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.

      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!

      • http://twitter.com/baniels Ben Daniels

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

          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….
