BGR's BlackBerry PlayBook giveaway ends today!

All good things must come to an end, and our BlackBerry PlayBook giveaway is no exception. For those of you who haven’t yet entered, BGR is giving away a 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook tablet that will be shipped right to one lucky winner’s door for free. The contest is open to anyone 18 years of age or older, and unlike many of our giveaways, this one is open to anyone, anywhere around the world. You read that right — even if we have to strap this sucker to the back of a dog sled and mush it to you, we’ll make sure it gets there. And don’t forget, five more lucky winners will each receive an SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe pack and an SRS Labs t-shirt as part of a separate giveaway, so iOS device owners should be sure to enter that one, too!

SRS iWOW 3D for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch giveaway!

We reviewed SRS’s iWOW 3D accessory for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch three weeks ago and at that time, we were pretty much blown away by the device. Since then, nothing has changed — in a nutshell, we can no longer listen to music on our iDevices without the iWOW 3D plugged in and pumping. But hearing is believing, and SRS Labs was nice enough to send through a few units so we can share the love with our readers. That’s right, we’re giving away five SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe packages along with five SRS t-shirts. Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment below explaining why you should win an SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe pack and a t-shirt
  • Follow @BGR on Twitter and also check out our Facebook page!

It’s that simple. This giveaway will run for one week until 11:59 p.m. on April 26th, and it is open to legal U.S. residents 18 and older. Winners will be notified directly via email, so please make sure you use a real email address when posting your entry in the comments section. SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe packages include one iWOW 3D accessory, five different colored face plates and a pair of in-ear headphones. T-shirts are available in large only. Good luck!

Apple iPad 2 giveaway!

Apple’s iPad 2 just launched on Friday but you’d be hard-pressed to find a single iPad 2 in stores. Virtually every Apple store, AT&T store, Verizon Wireless store, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are sold out, and Apple’s online store is showing shipping times of up to one month — but we have you covered! We have an iPad 2 we’re giving away in typical BGR fashion, so you can FaceTime, GarageBand-create, iMovie-edit, and Safari-surf to your heart’s content. The model that’s up for grabs is a 64GB AT&T (3G) black iPad 2. Here are the contest rules!

  • To enter, drop a comment below letting us know why you should be the lucky winner of an iPad 2 that you can’t get anywhere else. Would it be your first Apple device? Did you get one of those $99 Android tablets and regret it ever since? Break it down for us!
  • Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter if you have accounts
  • The giveaway will run for one week until March 21st, at 11:59PM ET
  • The contest is open to everyone 18 years of age or older, and it is in an international contest — that’s right — if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re eligible.

Good luck!

P.S. You can always follow our personal Twitter accounts, too! @boygenius, @andrewmunchbach, @zacharye, @robotodd.

Logitech is giving away 360 Google TV-ready Revue boxes to celebrate CES [updated]

There’s nothing like free gear to help greet one of the biggest consumer electronics shows of the year, and Logitech has just what the doctor ordered this year at CES 2011. The company is giving away 360 Logitech Revue units this week. The Revue is Logitech’s new set top box featuring Google TV, and it definitely is not in the midst of a production halt.

Winners will have to watch Logitech’s Twitter account for instructions on how to hunt down a chance to win at the show. The winners of the boxes mentioned above will be CES attendees but 10 more boxes will be given away on January 9th, and can be had by anyone in the United States.

Apple iPhone 4 giveaway: part 2!

What’s better than giving away one iPhone 4? Giving away two of them, obviously. We saw that some of you didn’t like that the winner of the iPhone 4 actually already had purchased one for himself (unbeknownst to us), and since we value every single one of you out there, we thought it would be fair to do another giveaway. That’s right, we’re giving away one more iPhone 4, and the rules are basically the same. Here are the official contest rules:

  • To officially enter into the giveaway, drop a comment below explaining how badly you want a new iPhone 4 and why!
  • If you use Twitter, shoot us a follow! Our username is @BGR.
  • If you use Facebook, become a fan of our BGR Facebook page.
  • We’ll run the giveaway for a little over a week, until Wednesday, July 21st at 11:59PM
  • Please enter once and only once, multiple entries will disqualify you

Good luck. Again!

HTC Droid Incredible giveaway winners: Part 2!

HTC Droid Incredible giveaway winners: Part 2!

HTC-Droid-Incredible-13

Our second and final HTC Droid Incredible contest saw so many hopefuls send in pics of their horribly dilapidated hardware that we had to take a break to down a stiff drink or two during the evaluation process. But in the end, we regained our composure long enough to pick three winners. So let’s have a round of applause for Jody P., Mark V., and Nick M.! We’re pretty bummed out we couldn’t pick more people because there were so many great entries to choose from, but fear not: Your pals at BGR are already planning the next giveaway.

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible giveaway: Part 2

HTC-Droid-Incredible-13

We’re back with the final part of our 5 device giveaway series, and this time, we’re looking for a bonafide reason you need this phone. We want to know the current device you’re using, and why it’s so bad — maybe it’s half broken, barely works, is completely outdated, or any other reason — so, hit us up with some photo or video evidence and you could win yourself a Droid Incredible. Here are the official rules:

  • To enter, email a photo or video of your current busted handset to droid at boygeniusreport dot com.
  • If you decide to smash, break, destroy, or otherwise compromise the structural integrity of your phone, that’s on you.
  • This giveaway is open to anyone 18 years or older in the U.S. (it’s a Verizon CDMA device anyway)
  • We’ll run it until May 28th at 11:59PM!
  • Since we already gave out two devices, we have three left. That means there will be three winners in this contest.

Good luck!
