Win A Samsung Galaxy Nexus From Google

 

Google has 10 Samsung Galaxy Nexus’ up for grabs over the next 10 days. You want one? Well it is quite simple, follow @GoogleNexus on Twitter and enter each and everyday by answering the daily question or puzzle. Once you reply via Twitter, sit back, relax, and pray. However, there is no need to rush because the event starts tomorrow (November 12) at 9am Pacific Time.

Remember when I asked you what you do to pass the time waiting for the Galaxy Nexus, well I just gave you another (and exciting) option. Best of luck and be sure to check out the official rules.

Interestingly enough, the contest runs until November 21, perhaps up to the release date of the Galaxy Nexus?

    The Galaxy S has a 5 megapixel camera with touch auto focus and can also record HD video at 720p resolution. The music player is outstanding too.

    wow, I wrote out a well-thought out comment and then disqus immedately removes it by “tagging” a screen name in my comment.  Great.

    In short – not worth my time.  The puzzles are annoying enough, but it’s not fun if you’re competing with 150,000 other people for 7 prizes that are >$1000 in value.

    Will probably be deleting my twitter account after this.  Sure that means one less person for all of you out there to compete with, but there’s still 150k others so enjoy.

    141,000+ people following? Yeah, I think I’ll pass, as well. There’s no way Google Nexus would scour up a hundred thousand people replying to it and picking out who answered it right.

    The answer is Sandwich Island.  

    http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/401681-official-galaxy-nexus-pre-release-thread-11-17-release-date-per-our-vzw-source-11-9-a-549.html#post3453901About puzzle #1.If you use signal flags to fit in each android figure (each time the two ends of flags represented by dots, but with having multiple in each figure), you get the following message: “what did J Cook call Hawaii”.So the answer must be the Sandwich Islands or Owyhee. The first of course relating to ICS.I think you can say it has been solved. Unfortunately someone already tweeted the Sandwich Islands 3 hours ago (all-in-all only a few people) signal flags: anbg.gov.au/flags/semaphore.htmlhawaii: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaii

      wow I did pretty good! I got “what did J” and quit because I thought I was way off, I was thinking it had to be a physical location… noted

    Mandatory arbitration clause in the official rules?  Not going to happen.  Come on, Google, you’re better than stooping to the level of using garbage like that.

    • guest

      Could you explain what you mean? I understand that arbitration is a form of solving disputes without going to court…I assume that its there so that they can pretty much get away with whatever they want? 

  • Richard Yoo

    So… anyone give up yet?

  • Anonymous

    Wow I’m trying to figure this out with the Semaphore flag system but its still a beast… no idea what letter goes were and the yellow is either a J or “letters”

    FYI, upon further review of the rules, IF you win, you only have to wait 12 weeks to receive your phone!  I would seriously crumble having to wait that long

    • Johnny

      Well I’m gonna buy it regardless, and if I won one, it will be going to the woman! Gotta keep her happy somehow haha

    i think i got it!

    And…the people who will win it are the people who have no idea what kind of a phone it is. It’s always like that, clueless people win things like that.

    the odds of wining are slim to none

  • Creliandobi

    way to go, Google. Introduce Buzz & now G+ and still tell people to use a different social networking site.

    i’ll pass.

  • http://twitter.com/bathroomtweeter bathroom guy

    If you read the fine print, they are only giving away 7 (seven) phones, not sure why there are 10 puzzles if they are only giving away 7. Its on page 4, section 8 of the rules.pdf:

    “8. PRIZES: Seven winning entries will receive a Galaxy Nexus phone…”

  • Genius

    There are already 141,000+ people following @googlenexus. I think I’ll pass and try my luck with an egg McMuffin and a Monopoly game piece tomorrow morning.

    Sooooooo if im 17 im ineligible then???

      Of course.

  • @Bigwavedave25

    So the contest begins at 12am but the first question doesn’t start until 9am pst?
    Talk about creating some morning buzz

    • http://twitter.com/nscelica Nicholas Sparks

      12am EST is 9pm PST (the night before)

      • http://twitter.com/Skitz_Marz Alex Gandero

        what are you talking about? it started at 9AM PST, and also, i see nothing about 12AM

  • Dave Estey

    OK, so which is it… reply answers to:
    @galaxynexus or #galaxynexus???
    Rules mentioned each in different sections

    • http://twitter.com/bathroomtweeter bathroom guy

      I think both, you have to reply to @googlenexus and you have to use the #googlenexus hash tag. Make sure its googlenexus for both, not galaxy.

    I hate contests like this. The odds better be better than 10,000 to 1 (SWAG) if I’m going to actually tweet for a company.  Twitter is turning into (more of?) a wasteland because of this kind of crap.  I just saw a Mena Suvari tweet about how much she loved her new RAZR.  With the number of hash tags she had on that ditty, hmmm….think she got paid?  What does Mena *really* think of the phone?  Does it matter?  Buzz…buzz…buzz…   I dislike the DL contests for this reason too.  How about each time I (and by I, the bogus account that I set up for that crap) tweet for a company, they give me $0.XX credit toward the purchase of a item Y.  Or, whatever.  Oops, I guess that turned into a little bit of a rant…

      Agreed.  Twitter is a waste dump of advertising by people with the most followers.  

  • Why

    i have one question, why twitter? why not google+!?!?!

    • Anonymous

      Lol because Google+ has rules against contests like this.

      That’s funny isn’t it.

    • John

      they are running it on g+ too

  • Aimesome

    ill do it for that one in a million shot at winning one since it is easy/free, but even if I did win I would buy one myself when it came out.

        It’s a useless waste of time and I’m not going to compromise for the off chance that it snows in hell and I actually win.

          I hear ya and agree…. but

          About five years ago I was the 100,000th post on an industry site and I won about $25,000 worth of equipment! Imagine how excited I was when my name popped up on the screen!

    Anyone else notice the rules say that ’7 winning contestants will win a Galaxy Nexus’… that’s got to be a typo right? I counted 10 days…

    • KG

      My guess is that when they originally wrote up this contest, they were planning on releasing this phone on the 17th and starting the contest on the 11th, the day after the Razr launch.  So a 7-day contest.  With Verizon pushing the launch of the Razr by a day to make their marketing gimmick work and Nexus slipping to the 21st, we ended up with a 10-day contest… just my thoughts. 

  • Anonymous

    Even if I won I’d buy mine on the 21st. 

  • Anonymous

    Ummm, it says that it will take 12 weeks for winners to receive the phone. TWELVE WEEKS??? 

  • Jeremycase00

    I want to win it then I’m going to video myself smashing it into pieces with my IPhone 4s. Just kidding can’t wait for this phone.

      Darnit, I sure hope this thing doesn’t wait till then to launch.

      And if you won you would still have to buy a phone if it launched sooner. Nobody would wait till then to see if they won.

    If it’s available off-contract at $500, like what it’s valued at in the rules, I will pick this up in a heart beat

    • Anonymous

      Scratch that… Nexus S contest value was at $500 http://www.google.com/nexus/challenge2/rules.html

  • dkbetts

    Is this a sign that they may launch the Nexus on the day after the last give away? Are we going to get this on the Nov 22?  That’s not a Thursday.  That doesn’t make sense but I am praying for it anyway.

    • guest

      I was wondering that also..

    • Anonymous

      Neither the Razr nor the Rezound has come out on a Thursday, so it shouldn’t really matter for the Nexus either.

    Already printed out the rules and I’M READY TO GO!!!

      Im actually considering buying it off contract now.

      Value and sales price are not always the same thing.
