Happy Holidroid Contest: O Caption! My Caption!

If you’re unsure what this whole “Holidroid Contest” thing is all about, be prepared to get excited. From November 24th through December 25th, Phandroid is giving away a Kindle Fire every single day along with other great prizes like the Galaxy Nexus Galaxy Tabs, JAMBOX, SmarTouch Gloves, Android Phones, Android T-Shirts, Seidio Vouchers and more. Read our announcement post for details.

Yesterday’s Winner

We asked you to mock up a new Android app idea. Your entries spanned the board, but we finally narrowed it down to SoldierAngel’s Message Hunter concept. It’s a take on geocaching where a user leaves a geotagged message to be discovered by friends and followers. Google+ integration is used to determine who can view your message. One use could have you leaving a virtual note attached to a restaurant or bar. When your friends happen by there they could read your assessment of the establishment or simply something like “Kev wuz heer!” Here’s the mockup:

And here’s what you could win today:

Amazon Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire could be this holiday’s hottest product: at only $199 it’s not only one of the most  affordable Android tablets, it’s also one of the best. That’s a killer combination. With a beautiful UI, great battery life, carefully curated apps/games, and an amazing array of media options thanks to Amazon’s Digital Content Ecosystem… the Kindle Fire is a sure win. Good luck winning one in our contest, but at only $199 it’s probably worth buying one just in case!

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

Everyone seems to be craving Samsung Android devices these days, and for good reason. Samsung makes some of the best hardware out there, coupled with great software integration, and the Galaxy Nexus (above) and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus are two great examples of Samsung’s industry leading products. These devices were sponsored directly by Samsung, thanking our readers and forum members for their excitement, interest, and support over the past year. With a 7-inch screen, 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM, MicroSD slot, camera that records in 720p HD, and screen that displays in 1080p HD, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a high end alternative to the Kindle Fire… and you can win BOTH in our contest!


Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves

Every single holiday season these SmarTouch smartphone gloves are consistently one of my favorite gift giving items. They eloquently solve one of the most fundamental problems a tech lover faces: using your device in cold weather. Wearing gloves usually prevents your touchscreen from working: take your phone out, take your glove off, use your phone, hand gets gold, shove phone in pocket, rush to get glove on. NO MORE! Isotoner’s SmarTouch gloves, designed in my colors and sizes for both men and women, has technology that passes the electrons your body gives off, through the gloves, onto the capacitive screen and allowing it to work. VOILA! Seriously. It works. Trust me. Try it… and you’ll love them forever.

Andy Robot T-Shirt

True Android enthusiasts and tech lovers enjoy expressing their Android attitude and there is no better way to do so then with an Android Robot T-Shirt from the brilliant folks at iSteamAndy. They’ve created a series of artistic, creative Android Robot themed T-shirts with fun, rich imagery. They sell like hotcakes and have limited production runs so get each design while you still can. Some of their top designs (and ones we’re giving away) include: Dark Night AndyiSteam Andy,Flying AndyExploded AndyAndy Verus, and Unstoppable Andy. Check out

Seidio $30 Voucher

With so much smartphone use comes battery drain. Thankfully, Seidio makes some awesome extended batteries that fit many smartphones, allowing you to get longer battery life with the same device. No more toting around a charger everywhere you go: just snag a Seidio and call it a day! Seidio also makes cases, holsters, and other great accessories for your smartphones.Check them all out here.

ZeeMote Bluetooth Game Controller

The Zeemote Bluetooth Game Controller compacts things into one comfortable, ergonomically sound gaming package. You use one hand and the controller has an analog stick with four action buttons on it. It’s a bit reminiscent of a Nintendo Wiimote – makes you wonder where the name was inspired from. There are many games in the Android Market already compatible with the Zeemote, including the popular title R-Type, and you may even be able to use it with some of your emulators. It goes perfectly with many Android devices, from 3.2 inch phones to 10.1 inch tablets. And if you want the ultimate gaming experience, Zeemote + Phone/Tablet + TV + HDMI-out = awesome.

    While anxiously awaiting the purchase of his shiny new White Droid RAZR, Steve reflects on the duties of his day job as a technology leader within Apple.  He is really worried about the RAZR selling out, as he did not anticipate such high demand for it.  Deep down he wonders if someday he will have the opportunity to be a part of something great, something out of this “Galaxy”.  Until that happens though, he will be heading home after this to play his favorite game of all time Star Trek Generations: Beyond the “Nexus”.

    The Top 5 things You WON’T Hear in line waiting for The Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

    5. Man Verizon sure knows how to launch a phone!!!

    4. My inside guy at Verizon told me the reason they won’t put Google Wallet on the Galaxy Nexus is because it has Carrier IQ in it.

    3. It’s nice to see carrier really caring about it’s customers and taking the time to work all the bugs out before they release the Galaxy Nexus.

    2. Is this the line for the white Droid Razr?

    and finally….

    1. How did I hear about it? I signed up at Verizon to be notified by Email when the phone was released? What? You didn’t get notification email?

    Verizon: Sorry, the press release was let out too early. We have to do some more internal testing before release.

    p3droid: It is because verizon doesn’t want google wallet on the device.

    Overheard in the Galaxy Nexus Line that the ice cream sandwich is so powerful and so advance that it even comes with an app name ‘Message Hunter’, and that app was just and idea that won a contest yesterday on phandroid.

    Looks like Verizon and Apple are having a secret sale on the IPhone 4s.

    Update: Words just in, the IPhone 4s is still the same price (how foolish of us to think otherwise), anyways it seems the device causing the big buzz is the Google Galaxy Nexus, whatever that is.

    3) Is this the line for the Galaxy Nexus Prime, Best Buy said they were sold out already and to try here!2) Google Wallet isn’t compatible with Carrier IQ, then why isn’t Verizon allowing Google Wallet…O wait…does that mean Verizon use Carrier IQ?1) Guy 1: You now Iphone 4S had  “It’s the most amazing iPhone yet” for its slogan, then Samsung had “The next big thing is already here!” for its Galaxy S II slogan. What was Verizon’s slogan for the Galaxy Nexus
    Guy 2:  “It’s the most amazing Droid, yet we still can’t advertise the next big thing is already here, because it isn’t!”**Applause heard for miles on that statement**

Now here I have used 3 vacation days because they kept changing the date and I’m in an even longer line in freezing weather all for a Droid. Blasted Verizon-this had better be worth it!

    Then they get into a huge fight 

  • Slizzard Lizard

    One guy: geez its cold out here.

    I have already posted a comment and don’t want this considered but I was just wondering if the guy in the pic has seen this yet? Wow, dude, why do people think you are trying to go to Marshals or waiting to buy an iphone? You seem like a pretty hip dude?

  • http://twitter.com/brandenk0 Branden Kim

    Bald Guy: Hey, hey, quickly search to see if it has 4g!
    Guy Next To Him: Ok, ok, wait… It says its only 3— Oh wait thats the iPhone nevermind… Yeah its 4g.

    Bro 1:
    Verizon Just told me there plans to offer full-length television shows for customers to watch on their cell phone.

    Bro 2:
    I don’t know about this. Don’t we have a enough trouble driving while on
    the cell phone already? Now, soon you’ll be in the car, watching an
    episode of ‘Two and Half Men’ while you run over Twole you run over Two and Half Men.

    Verizon employees: “What do we do when there’s a line outside the store?”
    “I don’t know this never happens, maybe if we turn off the lights they won’t know where in here”. “I don’t know I’m getting really nervous, I say PINEAPPLE!!! Pull the FIRE ALARM!!!!!”. “Wait don’t do the that, maybe if we just throw IPhones at them theyll go away”
    “IT’S NOT WORKING, they seem to be upset by free iPhones, who are these people?!?!?”
    “one guy just said he wants an ice cream sandwich, NO SIR you must be confused baskin Robbins is across the street, we sell CELL PHONES here not ice cream”

    Dammit, its a long line, need to get in-between somehow….

    White Guy turned back….

    Bald guy in his mind….
    hell yeah i will let her stand in front of me, if she asks that is…. might step back a bit…

  • Mortifal

    “Hey before I wait in line for another phone I want to make sure, this one DOES have 4G right?”

    I’ve been standing here for three hours, the guy in front of me will not stop singing  some rap song about an android. I’m tired, hungry and I have to go to the bathroom. CAN ANYBODY TELL ME WHAT I’M IN LINE FOR?!?

  • Aaron Peromsik

    “well, sure, we’ll all be overpaying for our voice and data needs, but c’mon, it’s a G’Nex!”

  • Jen Bennett

    Yeah, this is the line for the Galaxy Nexus. My wife asked for this for Christmas too and if I don’t come through this year with a decent gift, well, I probably won’t see Christmas next year.  Heck, I won’t see New Years Eve. I sure hope they don’t sell out before I get one.

    What do you mean this isn’t the line to “Cats”

  • http://twitter.com/jdawg2875 JH

    Yup I can see it now…. Next lawsuit from apple will be against Samsung for having long lines because they did it first. Of course from the looks of it, Android improved on that like they do everything else because this line is longer than any of Apple’s have ever been!
