Contest: Win a HTC One X From NVIDIA and Droid Life [RAW] (Updated: Winner Picked)

Day 2 of the 2nd Annual Droid Life Reader Appreciation Week is here! Yesterday, we handed out a 16GB Nexus 7, but today, it’s all about the phone side of things instead of tablets. How does an unlocked quad-core HTC One X sound? As one of our favorite phones of all time, we couldn’t be more excited to give this away to one lucky DL reader. Its power and beauty are matched by few if any phones even though it has been on the market for 7 or 8 months. If you haven’t read our glowing review of it, I suggest that you do.

Before we begin though, we wanted to give another big shout out to NVIDIA for putting up some amazing prizes this week including the One X. You won’t find a better gaming experience on any phone thanks to its Tegra 3 quad-core processor and big beautiful screen. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the Tegra Zone for all of your gaming needs.

OK, lets give this bad boy away! 


Update:  Our winner is…@TCM_89 who loves him some AirDroid. Congrats!

Prize:  1 (one) HTC One X [Unlocked] phone

*Note – This is an unlocked phone, meaning you can simply slap an AT&T SIM card in and have it run on their HSPA network without problems. It may also work on T-Mobile, but likely not on HSPA.

How to enter:

1.  Follow @NVIDIATegra and @droid_life on Twitter.
2.  Tweet the following message:

    My favorite “non-google app” of all time is GoSMS Pro. Best app for texting hands down. I’ve used others, the stock android one, Handcent, but i always end up with Go SMS again. Really great app, it’s free, and you can theme it really easily which I like.

    My favorite non Google app had got to be titanium backup. It’s the definition of android in my opinion because it is the biggest & best key for rooting and allowing users the freedom to customize, their android phone!
