The Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience

Do you love mobile gaming? Are you active on Twitter and Facebook? Do you spend hours on end posting in Mobile Nations' communities? More important, have you ever wanted to attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and are available the second week of January next year? If you answered YES to all of these questions -- have we got an experience lined up for you!


There's no doubt that CES in Las Vegas is an event any tech junkie MUST attend at least ONCE in his or her lifetime. All of the latest and greatest (and sometimes bizarre) tech is at CES -- it's something to see. And even better than going to an event like CES as an outsider is to go insider. That's why we are thrilled to announce the "Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience," in which six lucky individuals will receive round-trip travel and accommodations for CES 2013, courtesy of NVIDIA Tegra! Woohoo! Keep reading for all the details

To Apply, Here's What You Need to Do:

1. Record a 30-second to 2-minute video - Fire up the video camera on your smartphone and record a quick video of yourself. Give a big hello to Mobile Nations and let us know which site(s) you're active on and why you love them. From there, tell us what your favorite mobile game is right now. Finally, tell us why you think we should select you to take part in this Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience.

2. Submit Your Video - Upload your video to YouTube (you can leave it unlisted if you want). Then send an email to with the link to your submission video. Be sure in your email to let us know your full name, address and phone number so we can get a hold of you if you're selected.

3. Like NVIDIA on Facebook or follow @NVIDIA on Twitter! - Show our friends at NVIDIA a little love. Recording and submitting your video is enough to enter, but we hope you'll go the 'extra mile' to show them your support!

Want to attend CES 2013 for Free? Now's your chance, thanks to the The Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience!


Cannot wait to submit for a chance to attend.

Being a startup tech blogger myself, funds are not quite there to attend these major conferences.

Thanks for this opportunity!

I know how you feel. I wonder if they will let me in since I turn 18 on January 6th. The day before the conference. :)

Hi it would be nice to see a list of YouTube links so we could view them also. What is schedule of picking winners? fffastfffrank

Oh baby. I am a tech enthusiast. Maybe not the most experienced... yet, but my new job is swiftly pushing me to learn more. I am afraid I could go into pleasure overload if I walked around CES and saw all the goodies. I will certainly be submitting!

After a few months hanging around /r/android on Reddit, I decided to venture further into androidland, and try my hand at writing. I've been doing an almost-daily blog and Twitter account, but it's hard to gain traction. I will certainly put a video together, as mentioned in the article this very well could be a once in a lifetime thing. Regardless of the outcomes, I am already looking forward to the CES coverage!

Will definitley be sending in a video later today... that sounds like a blast! especially working IT for a living and loving all things shiny and techy!

I just happen to be on vacation during the first half of January. I may just enter when I get home tonight!!

My video has been submitted!
This would be BEYOND COOL to win! I would totes do your bidding Android Central / NVIDIA!
