Hey guys! The fine folks at ngmoco have approached a slew of Android sites to participate in a Skyfall Proving Grounds challenge. The prize? Well, I don't get anything but bragging rights if I take first place, but you guys will get a chance to win one of five (5) Skyfall-branded Galaxy S IIs, which means you should root for me quietly while you sit at your desk, likely pretending to work while you surf Android Central. It's okay, your secret is safe with us.

I received my Skyfall-branded phone just now, and I'm already on the hunt to become the Proving Grounds champ! If you're wondering why ngmoco chose to create this little competition, it's in celebration of the Skyfall open beta, which I checked out back in November at their headquarters in San Fransisco, CA. If you're interested in getting to know what Skyfall is all about, you can head over to the official site and check it out.
Wish me luck, Android Nation!

P.S. - I took this picture with the super cool branded Skyfall phone they sent me just for your enjoyment, even though Mondays is my "lay at home on the couch/watch TV/play SWTOR" day.  You're welcome, nerds.

Good luck Ash, the fact that you are giving up Old Republic time is very impressive. No one can ever say that you are not dedicated.
