It's tablet season here on SlashGear, and what better way to start off Spring than with your very own ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet with keyboard dock and Powerbag Messenger bag to match? It's NVIDIA, the creators of the Tegra 3 quad-core processor with 4-PLUS-1 technology powering this fabulous tablet that are providing prizes, and two full "Quad Core Packs" are what we've got to give away! Have a peek at our original Transformer Prime review, then see our review of this same excellent tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed, then head below and win one for yourself!
UPDATE: We now have our winners! Melissa Moruetta and Derek Walling please contact us at giveaway[AT]slashgear.com with your preferred mailing address and phone number - we'll also be contacting you via Facebook/Google+ to confirm your identities! For those of you not listed here and did enter on [Android Community] - head over there to see if you're a lucky winner!
The tablet and the keyboard dock are shown in the reviews above, the Tegra 3 offering 4-PLUS-1 technology: not just the four cores you'll be using for heavy-duty graphics and gaming, but a fifth core for low-power tasks and sleep mode. The Powerbag you're getting is not unlike the one your humble narrator reviewed during CES 2012, but in this case it's a messenger bag instead of a backpack. This whole experience is going to blow you away not only right away when you get your hands on it, but throughout 2012 as well as the NVIDIA Tegra Zone gains over 20 console-quality apps.
You've got one one, not two, but FOUR chances to win between our contest and the contest going on right now at Android Community - have a peek here at our rules and head over to their contest post to get in on as many chances as possible to win a full Quad-Core Package! Our rules are as follows:
