So our little blog is just over the 6 months old mark, and well, we've been growing thanks to our loyal following.  To do that I went and asked all of our contacts for 'something', and because they know we have some awesome fans, they came through.

I call it our "End of Summer Giveaway".  We could have had a 'back to school', but some of us aren't going back to school, so we didn't want to exclude those folks.  So whether end of summer means back to regular work hours, back to school, or ... well, end of the summer, this contest is for you!

Here's what's up for grabs:

Prize #1 - Nexus 4 Accessories
  • 2 Nexus 4 Expert Shield screen protectors
  • 1 XDA Developers Case
  • Zeemote
  • 3 plastic Tagstand NFC tags
  • 3 sticker Tagstand NFC tags
  • IM+ Pro & iDisplay app codes

Prize #2 Motorola BT Accessories
  • Motorola HX550 BT Headset
  • Motorola S10-HD BT Headphones
  • Motorola Roadster 2 BT Speakerphone
  • Zeemote
  • IM+ Pro & iDisplay app codes

Prize #3 HTC "Back to School" kit
  • Backpack
  • Hat
  • Umbrella
  • Hoodie (with headphones on the drawstring)
  • waterbottle
  • Zeemote
  • IM+ Pro & iDisplay app codes

Prize #4
  • 7" Neoprene tablet pouch
  • IM+ Pro & iDisplay app codes

Prize #5
  • 9" tablet pouch (good for a Kindle Fire HD 8.9")
  • IM+ Pro & iDisplay app codes

Prize #6

It makes quite the mound of gifts, and it's made me really jealous.  THANK YOU to our donators!!

Really jealous of the HTC pack - man, our guys have been holding out!  That's a nice backpack (tons of room) and the hoodie has those headphones in the drawstring!!

[UPDATE - just made it easier to enter]
To enter:

1. Like / follow / circle the Android Coliseum page
2. Tweet / post publicly tagging us (so we can see it) sharing the URL for the giveaway

3. Post should also include the 'secret' word that you'd hear in our Friday Night Hangout
And that's it.  We'll log and capture all the entries.

The contest will run until the end of the month and I'll draw the winners on Monday, September 2nd, 2013.

My little 'disclaimer':

  • Giveaway runs from August 16 until September 1 at 11:59PM EST.  The secret words given during the hangouts are good only for the week after the hangout where they're given.  As soon as a new word is given the old one expires.
  • Anybody who writes for Android Coliseum and their immediate families (i.e. if they live in the house with you) are ineligible... just looks bad.
  • When you're selected, you'll be given 24 hours to respond, or we'll have to redraw.
  • If we don't get many applicants (minimum 20 different folk) we'll hold on to the prizes for a later date and another giveaway down the road.
  • All entries will be sorted according to their time of entry, and then a random number generator will pick the position of the winner for prize #1.  If that person has any other entries, they will then be removed as we then draw for prize #2, and so on.
  • Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are in no way associated with this giveaway.  By providing your information in this form, you are providing your information to me and me alone.  I do not share or sell information and will use any information only for the purpose of contacting the winner.
