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 am faithful to LauncherPro, I install it on every fone I get and set up the docks and screens the same way.
    Launcher Pro fulfills me because of the ability to change widget sizes, 3 customizable docks, and 10 x 10 column & row option gives me lots of space for lots of toys to keep my, currently Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE productive and entertaining

  • Camper_Kid

    I go with Stock. I am just a boring person I guess

  • shopdroid

    Stock because the others can’t handle motoblur widgets which I happen to like.

  • GoLauncher EX

  • phenotype

    None, I prefer stock.

  • not using a launcher yet… sorry for being a disappointment…

  • Stock jelly bean launcher

  • kingblake99

    nova because it is boss

  • done

  • Nova Launcher all the way. Why? Because I can.

  • Hieu Nguyen

    Nova launcher, everything I need, nothing I don’t

  • SchwannyT

    Stock JB… so buttery

  • robertlwalters

    APEX BABY!!! Super fast and always adding to it.

  • MjSplicer

    Been using GO Launcher recently because my PC died and I haven’t been able to root my SG3 and run CM10

  • My Bionic is STILL stuck on Gingerbread, so Go Launcher EX is my launcher of choice. Lets me hide all the stock Blur until ICS comes in before the end of the year (I hope…)

  • Stock sense right now but I bounce around Apex and Nova when they have an update. There is just something about sense that keeps pulling me back in.

  • Im using Go launcher with a ICS theme, Gingerbread hasn’t been good to me 🙂

  • Holo launcher user here. Use it for the style and drag n drop folders on the home screen

  • Patrick Maher

    Apex. Started using it because the free version had more features than other free launchers. Now I’m on the paid version because there are some really nice features that are worth the money.

  • Go launcher. Simply because its very user friendly. And it rocks!

  • Nova! It’s user friendly.

  • Gary Reynolds

    Doing the “Go” thing on Bionic

  • jmasterj

    Go Launcher, because I’m still on GB on my Thunderbolt.

  • drparty

    Apex… because of the swiping!

  • I use GO Launcher EX on my Razr Maxx. I use it for it’s customization to hide apps in the App drawer, Different backgrounds on the home screen and app drawer, nice smooth transitions resizable widgets etc… Droid Life <3

  • I’m using the stock Launcher. Why you ask? Because the folks over at Google seem to know a thing or two about phones and they made it, that’s why.

  • KevlarGibs

    I use Holo Launcher, since my Droid3 is still stuck on Gingerbread.

  • LjHe80

    I am using noVa launcher. It beats the rest of the launchers by far.

  • Stock because it works..

  • Brad Cleveland

    Stock on my Thunderbolt and LauncherPro on the OG.

  • Derek Gelinas

    Apex launcher. Every time I try and use Nova I just find I don’t care for it.

  • Shane McKeever

    Nova. Because I have forever and it has been good to me. Updates regularly and has plenty of features.

  • Stock on my Tf300t cause i don’t feel i need to. And Go Launcher on my thunderbird.

  • kcraw15

    Stock. I’m lazy

  • I’m using Apex because it gives the most customization for a free program. I’ve tried the rest, and stuck with the best.

  • trainplane3

    Apex because it works the best with the Moto softkey mod on my Nexus!

  • Touch Wiz – on GS3 I find it highly usable.

  • Nova Launcher…cuz it’s the BEST!

  • Launcher? Stock stock stocky stock. Thankyouverymuch.

  • Jonathonflores

    Apex launcher. By far the best in my opinion. A lot smoother than Apex and the features are abundant. Put that along with AOKP and you can customize just about anything on your phone.

  • Kidqwik

    I used to use Launcher Pro on my Droid X, then go Laucher. On my S3, nothing yet. The other ones slowed my Droid X to a crawl or that could just have been Gingerbread in general.

  • choose426

    NoVA launcher…..baby

  • Apex for life!

  • PudgyPanda

    I use stock… cause I am lazy

  • cashclay

    Nova comes with AOKP. I’m diggin the customizations.

  • fromo68

    I’ve used Launcher PRo ever since my DroidX

  • Stock Touchwiz on the GS3- 5 screens only

  • Nova Launcher. Best one out there.

  • Nova because at the time apex didn’t have some of the jellybean animations and features
