Qualcomm giving away 3 Snapdragon S4 Pro development tablets

Our friends at Qualcomm have pinged us to let us know about a great opportunity for developers needing to test Android applications for tablets. The chipset vendor is giving away three of its Snapdragon S4 Pro development tablets which, as you might have guessed, are beasts of machines. They come outfitted with the aforementioned quad-core S4 Pro chipset as well as a 10.1 inch WXGA display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and Android 4.1 out of the box.

Developers can sideload their applications for testing as soon as they turn the device on so there’s no complicated setup to get going with development. Of course, Qualcomm’s chipsets aren’t the only chipsets in the world — you’ll be optimizing your code to run best on it, but you should be able to adapt your application to any device if you can get it up and going on one of these.

All you need to do to enter to win is follow Qualcomm on Twitter at @Qualcomm_Dev and tweet using the hashtag #QualcommDevs or Like QDevNet on Facebook and submit an entry form. You can submit one entry per week until February 1st, so you’ll be able to get your name into the hat a couple of different times before the deadline ends. Good luck everyone, and come back to let us know if you end up winning one!

    I won one of these from Engadget and its pretty bad @$$. Of course a lot of stuff isn’t compatible. (most can be fenagled on there to work.) Fastboot is totally unlocked so it’s easy to root. Although recovery never seemed to work. It has these front facing stereo speakers which are great.(I cant figure out why all tablets don’t have them.) All in all despite not having some of the perks of a device intended for the average consumer if you know your android hacking it is an awesome tablet. I even convinced them to release a flashing utility and some copies of factory firmware as a recovery solution.

      “…the Province of Quebec in Canada” requires contests be registered.

    Nice feature tablet with best affordable price. Screen size and storage memory was superb. I like it because we can store lots of android apps and also run it very smoothly due to the best quad processor.
