It’s time for another Talk Android contest. This time HTC is providing two phones, the HTC Wildfire S and the HTC Status. The winner will get their choice of which one they want.
The HTC Wildfire S is currently offered on T-Mobile and features a 3.2-inch display and a 5MP camera. Recently, it was added to the bootloader unlock support by HTC. The Status is available on AT&T and is geared towards the hardcore Facebook fan. It features a QWERTY keyboard for all your status updates, and features a 2.6-inch display, a 5MP camera, a VGA front facing camera, and an extra special Facebook button.
If you’re not already following @VerizonWireless on Twitter, you might want to because they’re kicking off a 4×4 Galaxy Nexus Giveaway in a little less than an hour (10:00am EST). Each day over the next 4 days, they will award a lucky winner a Galaxy Nexus. You can see in the above image what your task is going to be for each day. You will have from 10:00am to 11:59pm to send your tweets and you’re limited to 10 tweets for each period. Winners will be picked by a random drawing and announced by January 31. Good Luck!!
Update: See the bottom of the post for the winner.
2011 has been the year of the Samsung Galaxy S II. With its huge Super AMOLED screen and a powerful 1.2 GHz processor, the Galaxy S II is a smartphone powerhouse. Its sleek form factor has won it legions of fans and has picked up a multitude of awards in 2011.
Boosted by Three’s all-you-can-eat data, you’ll now have all the internet you will ever need. Talk Android is offering one lucky reader the chance to get their hands on this cool smartphone compliments of Three. It comes with a Pay As You Go SIM pre-loaded with all-you-can-eat data so you’ll be free to stream, download, tweet and surf the web without ever worrying about the cost – there literally are no limits.
Motorola in conjunction with Chad Ochocinco are out to give one lucky individual an opportunity of a lifetime. Knowing that many football fans are also technology Android geeks, they’re looking to give someone a DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and DROID RAZR in a contest. What’s the catch? You have to hang out with Chad Ochocinco and do some reporting with OCNN from the Super Bowl of all places. Yup… you read that right gang. Check out the video above and hit up Motorola’s Facebook page below for your shot for an opportunity of a lifetime, which includes two cool Droids I might add.
When it comes to conserving your battery, nobody does it better than JuiceDefender. We all can use a little more battery power each day can’t we? JuiceDefender is probably the most popular app for saving power and extending battery life. It has been downloaded over 7 million times. There are three tiers – Juice Defender Battery Saver (Free), JuiceDefender Plus (on sale for .99cents through January 7), and JuiceDefender Ultimate ($4.99).
JuiceDefender – Battery Saver lets you easily manage Mobile Data, keep power consumption under control (e.g. disabling connectivity when the battery runs low), schedule regular Synchronization events, and much more. The preset power saving profiles makes it very easy to use – just tap Enable and go!

It’s time for another Talk Android giveaway. Recently the Dark Knight Andy t-shirt was released to the masses and they have given us 5 shirts to give way to our readers. All you have to do is head over to our forum thread and leave a comment on how badly you want to win. You will have until Friday, December 9 at 11:59pm EST. We will pick five random winners and announce them on Saturday, December 10.
Other than the Galaxy Nexus, which we’re still hoping will be released this week, the hottest phone right now has to be the DROID RAZR. Every day in December (except December 31), Verizon is going to give one away for FREE. All you have to do is complete an entry form and share their message on Facebook and Twitter. They are comparing it to “caroling in the social era.”
You have to enter each day by filling out the form and sharing. Of course, you can enter as often as you like, but you need to do it at least once each day to be eligible for that day. Unfortunately there’s a little bad news as this contest is only good for residents in NC, SC, TN, AL, GA, FL, MS, AR, LA, OK, and TX. If you’re 18 years or older, and live in one of these states, hit the source link to get the ball rolling because there’s still 26 winners to be named.
There are so many ways to listen to music with your computer or phone, but when you don’t want to have a database or cloud storage, Slacker Radio can’t be beat. Even the free version gives you so many options, but where Slacker really excels is with the premium subscription which makes any artist or song, from the library of over 8 million songs, on demand. That’s right, you can not only customize your stations the way you want, but you can listen to whatever you want whenever you want. That includes music, sports, news, and comedy.
At $9.99 per month it’s a steal, but how about 3 months free? The folks over at Slacker were kind enough to give us five 3-month subscriptions for our readers. It’s quite simple, just head over to our forum contest thread (link below) and tell us why you think Slacker is the best music app. Get your entry in by Thursday, December 1 at 11:59pm EST. We will pick five random winners and let you know on Friday, December 2. Good luck!!!
To celebrate the new and improved Talk Android, we’re giving away a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, compliments of Samsung. The Galaxy Tab 8.9. I think our own Joe Sirianni said it right in his review – ” The super thin tablet is a happy medium for those desiring more than a 7-inch tab but not quite wanting a 10.1-inch device.” Just follow these simple rules and you just might be the lucky winner.
Entries will be accepted through Sunday, November 27, at 11:59pm.
The Talk Android staff will select the winner on Monday, November 28. We will announce the winner in the forum thread and notify the winner by the email assigned to their forum profile.
We have a winner
The TalkAndroid team had a really tough time with this one, but we finally picked a winner. It’s forum member jessenj. His caption was:
“Um, I’m sorry Don Pablo, but when we outsourced our troubleshooting to Mexico and you offered to help us get rid of some of our bugs, I think something got lost in translation… next time we’ll use Google Translate”
We are sending you an email to the one associated with your forum username. Congratulations and enjoy your brand new Galaxy Tab 8.9. Again, special thanks to Samsung for providing the tab!!

Earlier today we asked you all to help us find the combination of a safe delivered by a @DroidLanding operative that contained a DROID RAZR. You guys were really good as we already have a winner. Checkout the video below:
This Friday one of the sexiest and thinnest smartphones will become available on Verizon Wireless. Of course, with any DROID release there is a major contest hosted by @DroidLanding. It already began last week, but don’t worry it’s not too late. It appears the operative has secured 4 safes that each contain a DROID RAZR and Talk Android was one of the lucky blogs to receive one (pictured above).
