Google announces the Galaxy Nexus Challenge: 10 chances in 10 days


Google has announced a competition to give you a chance to win an Ice Cream Sandwich bearing Galaxy Nexus via their Galaxy Nexus Twitter Page and their Android Google+ Page. The competition which starts at 9am PST(4am AEDT tomorrow morning) runs from the 12th to the 21st of November and is open to Australian residents as well as residents of Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, the United Kingdom or the 50 United States and the District of Columbia and because of the wide variety of time zones covered it appears they have different times they will be sending out clues or puzzles.

You have to follow @googlenexus, so yes you have to be on twitter to enter as this is how they will feed the clues on how to win. Google did run this competition when they released the Nexus S and the challenges ranged from brain bending to artistic so everyone is in with a chance. Full terms and conditions for the competition can be found here, so make sure you read them.

I`d love to hear of an Australian winning one of these phones but from memory the puzzles were quite difficult so good luck to all.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Yeah, I logged onto twitter for the first time in about 18 months just for this comp. So the current challenge is to create a video or photo about ‘deliciousness’, is that correct? And we have a week to do it? I don’t really understand how this fits into the “10 chances in 10 days” thing. I thought it would be one riddle-type-thing per day. I reckon this current one is bit of a waste of time. It’s so open ended. You’d have to be ultra-creative just to be in with any kind of chance. That ain’t me, so I’ll… Read more »

And please explain Google why you are using Twitter to run this competition at the expense of your own system. Google are killing their own child.

Twitting is for twits and Google is the biggest of all.

“Contests, sweepstakes, offers, coupons or other such promotions” are currently a violation of of Google+ pages terms and conditions.  Thats why Twitter is hosting the competition and not G+.
