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.

  178. “Galaxy what?! No, were all in line for the white Droid RAZR” ;)

  179. “LOOK AT ME NOW, LOOK AT ME NOW. FRESHER…THAN A..MAHH…….Oh crap! wrong picture”

  180. Sent from my Blackberry Smartphone.

  181. Person (n): Dude, I was just thinking… the entropy of this line is uber low… and it’s pretty cold out here… so the Gibbs free energy is just too high for this to be a spontaneous reaction. Person (n+1): I know, right!? With so many dudes in one place the entropy is as bad as a full line of urinals! Person (n-1): Oh guys! I know this great thermodynamics app… I’ll beam it to you when we bounce outtta hereeee  *everyone with big smiles* Person (n, n+1): Right on!

  183. For years Android fans have held a licence to make fun of Apple fans who wait in line for exorbitant amounts of time for their phones.

Ironically, the licence to show off their larger screens, better hardware, and faster data speeds just got renewed today with no foreseeable expiration date.

  192. This better not be a lie like this cake I keep hearing about.

  193. Siri told me to quit asking why I couldn’t do
    this or that with the iPhone and just get in line for the Galaxy Nexus. By the
    looks of this line I’d say I’m not the only one who has been pestering Siri for
    answers she can’t provide.

  194. IPhone owner walks up. Why don’t get the iPhone 4 its 4g. Uhhh no its not. Just because it has a 4 in its name doesn’t mean 4g. The galaxy nexus is 4g and is worth standing inline for.

  195. Dude, do you think anyone will notice we’re all dressed in black and label us non-iphone users as “un-creative”? Oh wait there’s someone dressed in a red sweater! Oh nevermind, he’s in line for the bathroom…

    Random Dad with kids: “To see AndyClause of course” 

    Random Person #1: “What are you talking about? This is a phone launch line. We’re all waiting to buy the new Nexus phone.”

    Random Dad with kids: “What do you mean this isn’t the line to see AndyClause? I promised my kids they could get there photos taken with him! Now what do I tell them? All they wanted was to see Andy the Android dressed up as Santa! They were told he was handing out FREE Ice Cream Sandwiches. This is horrible news.”

    Random Person in line #2: “Well, hate to disappoint you, but it looks like you’re out of luck. By the way, I don’t think AndyClause is real.”

    Random Dad with kids: “WHAT? Say it isnt so? I knew my iPhone friends were joking. I was hoping it was too good to be true. Those jerks. Now they ruined my Christmas too!”

    Random Person #1: “Don’t feel too bad, I just found out he isn’t real either.”

    Random Person #2: “Oh he is real alright! Notice how we are all here talking about him while waiting to buy the newest and greatest Nexus device. Right before Christmas?”

    Random Dad with kids: “Guess this truly is a Holiday for miracles.”

  205. Guy in red jacket on OG Droid:
    “..Yeah. I got in line and was suddenly surrounded by a hundred people dressed in black… Is there an Apple-freindly dress-code in the Verizon stores, now?”

  206. man..why did I drink that second beer after work?

  207. Nexus One owners.

But I have to be honest, I didn’t expect it to be THIS crazy for the White RAZR. Do you think I can still snag one if I come back tomorrow?”

  366. “Hey buddy what time does Marshall”s open? ” ……. “What do you mean this is a Nexus Line? What is a Nexus ? …..Never mind I will Google it when I get home after I buy my socks.”

    1. funny thinking outside the box !

  367. overhead in line: “Hey, where the white women at?”

  368. Hey, if they dont have any Galaxy nexus left by the time we get up to the front you wanna just go to the Marshall’s shoe sale? 

  369. Verizon Employee: ‘APRIL FOOLS!’

  370. I’ve overheard that there will be only 50 phones in stock, but since I’m already here in line waiting for hours, I’m gonna go in and play with the display model until either it breaks or I got tired of it as a thank to VW for making me anxiously wait, wait, and still waiting even when it’s finally released.

  371. “An obvious contrast to an iphone release, the people in the Nexus line apparently looks like they have actual jobs, live somewhere other than their parent’s house, are very colorful as long as it’s black, and are all looking around for an attractive female of which they will not find”

  372. Man screams, Yeeeesssssssss!! “This phone is so frigging fast and the screen is so huge……. I wonder how I’m gonna explain to my girlfriend what happened to the rent money?”

  373. “Are there any left bro? Siri couldn’t tell me”

  374. “Why are there no girls in line?”

  375. “So you’re telling me that while we’ve waited in line for the Galaxy Nexus, the Google Nexus BAZINGA has come out? Where the hell is the line for that?!”

  376. Overheard in the Galaxy Nexus line that Siri is also dress in black, because today is the iPhone 4s funeral.

  385. “Is this long line to purchase the new Galaxy Nexus phone at the Verizon store?” asked a passerby. Several men in black turned their heads to face the stranger. One replied, “No, sir, we are all in line to interview at the Verizon store so we can sell the Galaxy Nexus.”

  386. “Seriously? Each Galaxy Nexus comes with ice cream sandwich? Doesn’t really make sense in this kind of weather. They should be giving out free hot chocolate.”

  387. “Why yes, this phone does have a huge screen and 4g speeds…. Did you think this was the iPhone 4S line?”

    “You have to be kidding me…”

  389. I will not look! I shall hide in anticipation! I will not turn my face to the glory of the Nexus! I am not worthy!

  391. “I need to get my hands on one before VZW realizes that they didn’t want to launch today.”  What everyone in line is thinking.

  392. All I want to do is get my blackberry fixed.

  393. “Oh look…turns out they screwed up again. Says here its been delayed. Again.”

  394. Overheard in the Galaxy Nexus Line: “I heard they have the white Droid Razer today.  Can’t wait!”

  395. “Can you believe Mitt Romney thinks he has better hair?”

  396. Hey, is this the line for free soup

  397. “Yeah, they called me this morning too. Said they decided to push back the launch and I had to return the phone. Then the guy said the Nexus didn’t exist! I just don’t even know what to think anymore.”

  398. Man, I don’t know what is going on…  I just saw everyone following the guy in the red jacket, figured they were filming a new Verizon Commercial.  Been waiting all day to hear him say… “Can You Hear Me Now?”

  399. I wonder if Verizon will have announced a release date by the time we get inside?

  408. “A crowd gathers outside of a Verizon store for what can only be described as the release of a new phone, though no recent rumors of new phone releases have surfaced. The crowd was overheard saying ‘Give me my ice cream sandwiches’ and ‘Majel is coming.’ 

    — Caption Sent from My iPhone” 

  409. You mean to say you’ve been waiting in line since the first release announcement? And to think I was so angry every time I was told the release was pushed back!

  410. “I heard it can unlock using your face!” 
    “Yeah, I heard it has hardware acceleration!”
    “I heard it allows you to hangout anywhere!”
    “Oh man, I can’t WAIT to buy my own warp drive with facial recognition! With this kind of hardware acceleration, I’ll be able to hangout anywhere in mere seconds! This is AWESOME!”
