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.

BGR Giveaway: Bioserie iPhone 4 cases

Apple has officially ended their iPhone 4 Case Program, but we know some of you still want — nay need — a case for your shiny, attenuating, iDevice. The folks at bioserie were kind enough to send us four, bioplastic, iPhone 4 cases to give away to you, our beloved readers. The skinny on the eco-friendly case is this: it’s made from plants, not petrochemicals, it’s light, weighing in at only 12 grams, and it will help cover that “sweet spot” on your iPhone 4 that makes your signal meter jump around like a Jack Russell terrier when touched. How do I win one of the cases you ask? It’s simple:

1. Follow us on Twitter and give our Facebook page a “like” (yes, both).
2. Leave a comment on this post (make sure you register your comment with your actual email address as this is how we’ll contact you).
3. That’s it!

The contest will run until Friday, November 5 at 11:59PM ET. Multiple entries will disqualify you and we’ll contact the winners via email on Monday November 8th. We have cases in red, light green, dark green, and orange; be sure to leave a color preference in your comment if you have one. Good luck!

UPDATE: Congrats to Adam, Kemal, Omar, and Ricky… our bioserie case winners!

Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID R2D2 launch: Stormtroopers, giveaways, and more

Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID R2D2 launch: Stormtroopers, giveaways, and more

Star Wars fan? Android fan? Verizon Wireless customer? September 29th at midnight should go down in history for you then. Not only is that when Motorola’s DROID R2D2 limited edition device goes on sale at select Verizon Wireless stores across the country, but it’s also looking to be quite an event. We have been just sent a couple images from one of the participating stores, a store called Vista Ridge in Lewisville, Texas, and we also have some info on what is exactly is happening for the launch — it’s pretty crazy. Apparently, the participating stores will be giving away 5 Motorola R2D2 units, there will be actual “Stormtroopers” at the store (employees dressed up as Stormtroopers), video gaming, a live DJ and more. Stores are getting approximately 200 units and stock will not be replenished. Last bit of info… our tipster said that Motorola reps have indicated the Star Wars edition device is actually running a 1.2GHz CPU, not a 1GHz. Pretty interesting, huh? Our only wish? That the keyboard on the handset was white.

Let’s hear it — anyone gearing up to get one of these things on Tuesday evening?

One more photo after the break! More →

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!
