Last Contest: Win a Toshiba Excite 7.7 From NVIDIA and Droid Life! [RAW] (Update: Winner Picked)

Can you believe it? It’s day 5 of Reader Appreciation Week, meaning this is the last of the mega-giveaways. How quickly did that go? We already gave away a Nexus 7, Toshiba Excite 10, HTC One X, and a Transformer Pad with matching keyboard dock. To put it loosely, this has been one heck of a week.

To finish it out, we have a Toshiba Excite 7.7 up for grabs thanks to our friends at NVIDIA. This is a tablet that most overlooked because of its steep price tag. If you take a look at reviews around the web though, you’ll quickly realize that this is quite the little package. It sports a 7.7″ AMOLED display, Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD slot for expandable storage, and dual cameras.

Who wants it?

    I’m using Nova because it makes my GS3 feel even faster.

  • Tzvi

    I don’t use a launcher because I don’t use themes enough and the extra features aren’t tempting enough to want it over the regular, Motorola ics launcher. I have tried a few launcher before and I think the best are the Go EX and Nova launchers.

  • I’ve used LauncherPro for years now. It’s always done the best job for me on my Galaxy SII and my old Xperia X10. A few hiccups here and there, but the kinks have always been worked out quickly.

  • Stock the Galaxy nexus doesn’t need a launcher

  • Trebuchet. No need for anything else.

  • I’m using Apex Launcher because I like the set of customization options and the easily configuration of drawer tabs.

  • Dima Aryeh

    Nova. Smoothest one I’ve found.

  • Tyler Bowden

    Vanilla stock launcher, does what I need it to.

  • Denis Anderson

    I am not using a launcher, so I guess whatever comes with my phone 🙂

  • Adam Pfahlert

    Still old school gingerbread launcher, hoping to get something new soon!

  • Holo Launcher. So my Froyo powered Optimus T can look a little bit up-to-date.

  • The stock jelly bean launcher. There should not be any other launcher besides what is on my nexus.

  • Fourth much as I love autumn, I’m giving myself to asses, tslauncher pro, seriously too manyt schose from, settled on thus one, lets you have more rows and columns on screen fkr appsj

  • Stock Launcher

  • Nova Launcher. ‘Coz it actually listens to user requests and implements them fast. And I like it’s icon more than the other launchers. 🙂

  • andyroid12345

    everyone must love the launcherpro for the old school people, like how could you now like it?!!? It is THE BEST!!! Like Seriously!!!

  • GO Launcher because I’m still on my Droid 3. No real ICS or Jellybean for me. *tear*

  • Matt Treadwell

    BuglessBeast no launcher needed

  • Forest much as I love autumn, I’m giving myself to ashes

  • I’m using go launcher ex because it’s smooth and really customizable

  • Mark Thibault

    Launcher Pro was always my go to launcher. It is still probably the fastest on the market but it’s missing all the new features new launchers have. My new choices is Apex. It has all the features I want and it still quick.

  • Andy

    Go Luancher even if it takes up a lot of ram 🙁

  • Saxmusiq

    Launcher Pro! Still rocking it while waiting for JB on my Bionic.

  • arthur2142

    I am currently using Nova Launcher. I’ve been a fan of launchers since LauncherPro Plus back on my OG Droid. I transitioned to ADW Launcher when support for LPP stopped. When I noticed Apex and Nova getting regular updates, including Jelly Bean features, I again decided to upgrade. I chose Nova Launcher over Apex due to wanting my home screen apps and widgets to appear a certain way. Nova allowed me to get the look and feel I wanted.

  • kevintufts

    Nova, it let me do the stuff I wanted that stock didn’t do. What those things are, I don’t even remember.

  • I am using Go Launcher cause I like how clean it is

  • bobbymay1

    Stock launcher on the galaxy nexus. Used to use LauncherPro before on my OG Droid.

  • klee2000

    Apex- Love that it makes my samsung look like stock Ice cream sandwich….

  • Stock Android for the awesomeness of 4.1.1

  • Nova because it was the only ICS launcher at the time and I’m too lazy to try Apex

  • CompCrash

    Stock launcher, I don’t use the extra features of any of the other launchers so it is plenty.

  • BD

    I’m using Apex because I love the customization.

  • Joe Paul

    Nova. I forget why though. I would have to uninstall to remember what was so irritating without it.

  • collegepunk

    i use launcher pro, has everything i need!

  • Using Go Launcher on my phone since I can’t use the cool launchers because my TB hasn’t been updated to ICS yet

  • shehippie

    I love Nova! It cant get any better then that!

  • Nova Launcher: It’s just like butter!

  • Austin

    I use HOLO Launcher because i dont have ics and maybe droid life could hook me up with one?

  • abdroid

    Go Launcher because I moved from Launcher Plus and never looked back…

  • Sync on Thunderbolt cause I’m lazy.

  • Stock launcher is all i need

  • NOVA just because I’ve been using it since it came out and I love all of the features it offers!

  • Themanhere10

    Launcher Pro, it does all I need it to!

  • I use the nova launcher, i’ve tried a few other but nova seems the best

  • Nova, because it comes with AOKP

  • bigillz

    Apex – seems the simplest, clean solution when running without HTC sense on Rezound. @jefebear on twitter

  • Lambo_21

    stock, it uses less of the RAM, meaning better performance from my androids! 🙂

  • Using stock on my Nexus 7 and Nova on my G2. It’s all about stability and speed!

  • Go Launcher – Just stuck with it and they keep updating and adding to it. I’m happy with it but not as happy as I would be with a new tablet – sold my nook color and trying to save some money to buy a new tablet someday soon…

  • Currently using Holo Launcher HD on my Galaxy Nexus. I love the stock look and feel of it with being able to change the icons and other customizations. Runs extremely smooth!
