Midweek Madness: Win the first Android Limited device, a custom XOOM tablet!

Good news everyone! After giving away custom shirts and posters and toys for the past few years, we’ve finally landed at the logical conclusion: custom devices! Today we are happy to announce the launch of Android Limited, a special edition line of devices from Android and Me available only to you, the loyal reader.


We’re kicking off the series with a one-of-a-kind Motorola XOOM, powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2. The XOOM is WiFi-only and has had its entire back laser etched with a custom design from our own @angiedoes. I could talk almost forever about how cool this was to make.


When I said one-of-a-kind, I meant it. We’ve only got one of these things. The art was made specifically for this project, and we won’t be using it again. Whoever wins this thing will have the only XOOM like it. Ever. The design consists of orgami-inspired triangles and concentric lines, labeled simply in the corner, Android and Me with NVIDIA.


To win this XOOM, you’ve got to tweet or share on Facebook a link to this page with the hashtag #AndroidLimited. The winner will be chosen at random via RowFeeder monitoring. You can enter once per day with any status update containing a link to this page and the hash #AndroidLimited.


If you’re using Twitter, feel free to utilize the tweetbox below to enter directly from this page:


Since this is the WiFi-only version, the contest is open to everyone regardless of location. A winner will be announced this Friday at 12PM CST, so fire up your tweeters and the facebooks!


Big shout out to NVIDIA for providing the XOOM, and Dan to at PerfectEtch here in Austin for letting us film the process. If you’ve got some electronics you need marked up, he’s your guy.


Also thanks to you, the loyal reader, for hanging around long enough to make this happen. We had a blast putting this device together, and we’ve got many more to come. Stay tuned!
