As we expected, Google doused the 6,000 or so in attendance with free gifts aplenty. Their annual Oprah moment was right on cue at the end of their presentation where they generously gave each developer and member of the media three devices.
One was a Galaxy Nexus, a phone I’m sure will be popular once Jelly Bean comes out. Another was the brand new Nexus 7 tablet, the $200 7 inch device that will come pre-installed with Jelly Bean. Finally, the Nexus Q, an Apple TV-like device for wireless home multimedia streaming, was promised as the $300 cherry on top.
Now, multiply each of those items by three, and that’s how many we have! (That’s over $2,500 in value being thrown at you!) We’ll be giving away three prize packs consisting of one of each of those items. One contest has already concluded (a winner has yet to be determined but the deadline is over), but you still have two more chances to win.
This one’s for developers who have an app or game in the Google Play Store, and this one’s a free for all for AndroidForums.com enthusiasts (or anyone who wants to become one, for that matter). Both of them end June 29th so get your entries in ASAP! Good luck and check out the heartwarming (or breaking, if you don’t happen to win one) moment in moving picture above.
