To my Dearest AC,

Ok, I confess. I've had an on-going affair with Crackberry for a while now. I couldn't resist their push e-mail and qwerty keyboards. But I've seen the screens (Droid/N1) and changed my ways. I love you Android Central. And yes, I will gladly accept a $150 BB Card as a token of your forgiveness.

DroidLover (android, that is)

Oh please hook me up! I NEED a new TV(still rockin a 23" tube) and the Wife said no go. This might be enough to push her over the edge!
Thank you!!!!

awesome of you guys to be generous enough to just give it away. :D

itd be great for some android accccessoriessss. :)

Is it possible to enter multiple times? I mean what if someone is sitting at their computer just repeatedly entering comment after comment after comment after comment after comment after comment....I guess they would really want $150 BB card huh.

Oh yea, that's what i'm talking about.
I could most definately use the BB card.
You guys are awesome!

Can'tcan't see what's wrong with Lost Dvd's myself, though I'd rather a bigger SD card personally... btw, your new logo rocks!

lol great way to generate a little publicity =] i read your posts every day, keep up the great work and thanks for a chance at the gift card!

I would love to win a $150 Best Buy gift card. Best Buy is my favorite store. I buy all my electronics there. Just bought a 32 inch tv and a PS3 slim less then a month ago. If I won I would buy some accessories for my Droid!

My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say "I'm gonna be like you dad
You know I'm gonna be like you"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home dad?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play
Can you teach me to throw", I said "Not today
I got a lot to do", he said, "That's ok"
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
And said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

Well, he came home from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
"Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
He shook his head and said with a smile
"What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please?"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then.

Free Stuff? Count me in. I'm followed you guys for sometime, since I got my Droid. But now, due to the contest I even registered. :)

COMMENT!!!! I hope I win...I've never won anything in my life before. ha ha But if I lose...ahhh well. There's always next time I guess. lol


My son is turning 12 next month and I don't have the $ to get him something nice (he got a G1 last year when our financial situation was better), as my wife has been laid off and temping for a year. Boy would he be surprised if he actually got more than a token gift! He is an android geek like his dad - he is building himself a AA battery-based charger for his G1. He would love $150 to spend at BB and we would both love Android central even more that we do now!

Count me in that is like my second home. I would surely put it to great use! Could buy my accessories for the new Droid I got yesterday!

Love the site guys. Keep up the great work! Wouldn't mind grabbing some accessories for my Droid with this!

Im broke after i spent all my cash on my new nexus.
I could really use this!!! PLEASE!

This would certainly help get the wii fit for my grandmother. Hope I get picked!

Sure could use it! Been needing a Jawbone for my Droid. The motorola just aint cuttin it anymore! Thanks AC!

I hope you all chose me. I could use one really badly. Struggling, full-time digital Video Production Major, student. I could do a lot with that, & Best Buy if my favorite retailer for well... just about everything :)

the only thing sweeter than winning a 150$ Best Buy gift card would be a ruggedized Moto Droid!

I really wish you'd pick me! I've been reading this site alot lately and ready to buy an android phone. That gift card sure would be nice - I'd get my phone with it!!!!

Love you guys, thanks for giving us an opportunity to win. You guys do some great work.

If I win this, I will put it towards a computer and start writing some better android apps...because using eclipse on a netbook = fail.

Brand new Motorola Droid owner, and first time Android user here. What better way to celebrate than with some accessories from Best Buy! Crossing my fingers...

About to get my first Android phone!
I'm going to get an HTC Hero from Sprint at best buy.

Please help me out!

Hmm, $150 should be just enough to persuade Martin Cooper to keep his droid, don't cha think?

I have to dump money at best buy each month anyways because my wife is a movie whore, so this would actually save me money and let me buy another android toy!!!

I would totally enjoy the gift card so I can purchase more stuff for my MotoDroid! Choose me... CHooose me!

Android is the new wave of the cell phone future and I like the news here at AC. Holding out to see if the Nexus One will be worth getting on Verizon, otherwise I will go T-mobile. Ditch the notion that iPhone is the best!

This gives me the perfect chance to thank Android Central for keeping me updated on the Google Nexus 1 and teaching me about the Android OS. I am currently a Verizon customer with a old school LG Chocolate, I am ready to take the leap to a smartphone and have been checking the website and forums daily for some release info on the Verizon Nexus 1. You guys rock!


WHOOOOO!!!!! I can buy one incredibly overpriced HDMI Monster cable!!!!haha...nooo but thank you android central!

My compliment to you is.....since that night I've been taking my pills.


You make me wanna be a better man.

Oh, you said comment.

My comment is: I'll take a $150 Best Buy Gift Card. Sweet!

As of a week ago I am a very happy BB to android convert. I have been following the forums here for the past couple of months and really attribute my decsion to leave bberry to the info I learned here. I'd love to outfit my new droid with that $150. So here's my entry.

Dangling a gift card to make us create an account. There, I'll bite. If I win this money will go directly toward buying an Android phone.

Well not that I'm more deserving than anyone else, but I have to pay off two tickets and between that and my phone bill I'm locked down on cash for the next couple of months. I would use that to buy some headphones (and some other stuff of course) so I could at least listen to some music on my Hero in peace since I have to stay broke. Even if I dont get It though, Android Central is freakin' awesome.

I really do love Android Central, it has helped me in so much. It helped me decide to switch to the best mobile operating system ever.

It's strange, every time I wonder something about Android, it's usually posted on this site that same day. It's almost as if we're connected, you and I.

Connected enough to know that I need this gift card, it'd let me get my child the Android phone they've been wanting for their birthday from Best Buy, instead of a cheap Revol.

Android Central, make a birthday wish come true. =)

Just ordered my Droid last night (upgraded from the Curve), would be great to have the card to get new stuff for my droid

This would really go well to help me by the Supersonic in June when I'm upgradable again.

I can think of some really great educational uses (for my students of course!) for the $150 gift card to Best Buy :)

Love to win it!!! :)

Want! I just bought a Nexus One at full price so I could use the uh, gift card to uh buy more stuff.

I think I could find a few things to buy with a nice big gift card to Best Buy.

I sure could use this gift card to buy the wife a new droid. She likes mine and she can't have it.

A $150 gift card to bestbuy would go great towards my HTC Incredible purchase!

Just in case you are DQ'in comments on comments... here's another tickle your fancy... perhaps you'll tickle mine?

Do you think $150 worth of candy from up by the Best Buy registers is enough for me to slip into a diabetic coma?

It would be nice to get this just in case I don't win the outterbox case, then I could just get one from best buy. Pluse AC rocks!!!!!!!

Kinda need a new camera. Or netbook. Or SlingBox. Or subwoofer. Or iPod. Either way, it'll get used!

Oh please pick me! That 150 would be great to get some accessories for my phone! Also a few video games!!

Well, as long as everyone is throwing their hat in the ring, so will I. I can practically smell my new Moto Droid already... no wait, that was just an old RAZR in the trash.

Best buy is my favorite store on earth! Its an adult toy store. I even follow them on twitter.

So there saying Sense on the Nexus One for the VZW. Interesting will I be able to talk and surf at the same time?

Let me in on this contest!! I need to get my dad a birthday gift fast. It was yesterday!!!!!!

Oh that would get me so much closer to a nice new Android phone!
It's almost my bday, it would be most awesome if you picked me.
THANKS for this chance to win!

I'd consider dumping my iphone and going to buy an android with this money. Best Buy loves when I shop there and I have to agree with them, I like it as well. More phones please.


If/when I win this gift card I will most likely 'pimp out' my Nexus One with some Zagg and then who knows! Share the wealth, perhaps???

I love this site my girl says i am a geek for always check up on new android stuff. So i say i love my HTC hero so why not She has a samsung moment thats a hot android phone too. keep up the good work guys with the site

btw my little girl is turning 6 wants a nintendo DS for her bday that gift card would work great :-)

Thats awesome! Hopefully I can win this! Androidcentral rules! Gotta love it! Thanks!

Android Central and Best Buy are my most favorite places to be! Please pick me, I never win anything...please, please, please?

You should totally pick me because I come to your site every day and I'll put it toward my HTC Desire purchase. I'll make a video not in german

I could finally get rid of my POS LG Dare and get on the Droid Train! PICK ME!!!

WOW when I registered there was only a couple posts now there's 4 pages lol had issues getting my password but Customer service fixed it thank them so much. Now I can Enter the contest YAH! If I don't win thats ok. If I lose I could use a phone for my T-mobile service instead I can beta test... LOL

I would LOVE a yellow painted piece of environmentally unfriendly plastic that holds a nice amount of digital value on it :D

The two things I love the most (after my wife and Droid) is and BestBuy. What would be better that to receive a free BestBuy gift card from

Either way keep up the great work!

Can you send me my card, I forgot where I left it and I appreciate you guys finding it, I really need it to buy that hard drive for my son to keep his homework on, Android Central ownz joo

My laptop just bit the dust a month ago and I have been stuck with borrowing my girlfriends all the time... I could really use this for a new computer!!

Amazing how many people chime in when a freebie is offered... ;)

But, I must admit, i'd find a good use for the GC myself.

BTW... Love the illo of the 'droid waving the BB gift card.

This will help with my new Android Phone on Sprint when it finally comes out. Please enter me.

Thank you for this generosity.

Well being I'm using at&t network service, A new smart phone would be great hint: nexus1 or htc desire and that coupon could put me on road to what I really DESIRE!
