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?

  • derrickmcc

    Stock JBean

  • Kainoah

    I am using Apex launcher because I like the look and feel of jelly bean and I also love the extra features and how smooth it is

  • billracine

    Nova launcher on my Fascinate, Stock on my Nexus 7 & S3 (so far) and Apex on my Thrive 10″

  • Anthony Tyler

    I use the launcher that comes with CM10, it does what I need, I don’t need fancy/flashy/pretty, I like functionality, and I get it with this launcher.

  • Nova Launcher, I use it because I like how smooth it is and it improves my ICS experience. It’s way better than the stock launcher on my Droid Razr.

  • B J Books

    Nova. It’s minimalist, but has just the right amount of customization.

  • slsmn03

    LauncherPro because habits are hard to break

  • Jerry M.

    Go luancher ex..i like it bcause of the themes

  • Christopher Mann

    i use Nova because it’s got a Jelly Bean feel to it and it extremely customizable and I love the gestures feature.

  • Gage

    Stock I dont like any of them.

  • yellowsnow

    Apex because I don’t get any redraws!

  • MJBigDeal

    Stock cause I am an android newbie

  • Jaykid007

    Apex launcher. Cool features

  • MarC

    I’ve just started to use Apex this week and liking it so far. I was using stock HTC Sense (ICS) but wanted to try something new. Might give Nova a try later on.

  • chuckles

    Apex all the way baby!

  • Love apex launcher. Love the features

  • Brettm2277

    Stock jellybean launcher. Nothing matches it’s responsiveness and fluidity. The extra features of nova and apex are cool but I don’t need them.

  • Stock ICS on my Droid 4 and Stock Jelly Bean on my Nexus 7. Android is doing such a bang-up job I figured I’d get tired of the standard before I start playing with the launchers.

  • I use apex bc of the customizable properties

  • I use Trebuchet Launcher, because it’s stock with ParanoidAndroid, and I’ve had no problems using it so far.

  • I was a launcher pro champion from the start, now on my GNex I’ve found NOVA Launcher fills in quite nicely. I really appreciate the ability to sort custom Groups and folders I’m my app drawer . It helped me to only need 2 home screens and one 7 button hidable dock! 🙂

  • kyle2422

    Apex because it’s awesome

  • Launcher pro all the way. I can never get sick of the old school style and it doesn’t lag or anything!

  • Long Tran

    No launcher – Jellywiz rom

  • Stock Rezound. I am hoping to start my tinkering with a prize from #RAW at Droid Life

  • stock. simple and smooth

  • TheCheapGamer

    Stock TouchWiz.
    Would ditch it but only for the stock one. Don’t really need all that fancy-ness 😛

  • Curt

    stock, because i’m not tech savy and don’t what other launchers to use.

  • [[[…babysmoker…]]]

    Apex all the way because that sh*t is smooth as BUTTA (but currently using Nova as it has my setup all backed up & I’ve been working too much to have a life & make the time to set everything up fresh….. which I will be doing momentarily with Apex as soon as I flash JBSourcery v2.3 ;p)!!!

  • Launcher Pro for that buttery smooth scroll action

  • duke69111

    I am using stock launcher. Not a big fan of custom launchers.

  • Jason Hansen


  • ChattyKat434

    stock since it just works for me

  • Mike Barr

    Stock. I had Nova, but I prefer stock. The nexus doesn’t need any improvement in my opinion.

  • Ramon Gomez

    Nova because that’s what comes with aokp and I’m too lazy to switch.

  • kingblake99

    Apex because it is boss!

  • Apex currently, and by currently I mean less than 24 hrs. I change a lot

  • Stock, because I like having an unimpaired operating system

  • zial

    I haven’t really delved into the world of launchers. Can I still win a tablet? Please?

  • goodluckkitty999

    Apex launcher. Its just the best

  • Richard Wo

    Original, if it’s not broke don’t change it.

  • StealieSubie

  • melan26

    Stock is just good enough for me.

  • Thomas Kefalas

    Trebuchet! Because it sounds cool and comes packaged with CM10!

  • Mark

    Nova, because I paid for the pro version!

  • Nova for the win…

  • Stock Blur on my brand new RAZR M

  • Justin

    Apex launcher. It works best for me,
