Starting today (Aug. 29), Waze and Android Central will be giving away an Android phone or tablet each day to a lucky winner. Entering is fun and easy -- download Waze from the Android Market (link after the break) or Waze's website, register a user profile so Waze knows how to get in touch with you, then find the "Road Goodies" that appear on your map and drive over them to collect. Entrants who collect the most each day will be eligible for a daily drawing to win an awesome new Android device. Which devices? We're glad you asked!
- HTC Sensation 4G (unlocked) -- today

- Samsung Infuse 4G (unlocked) -- Wednesday
- HTC Thunderbolt (Verizon) - giving away two of these puppies -- Thursday and Friday

It gets even cooler -- each of the phones on the list will also include a car dock and charger, making it the ultimate traffic survival kit. The contest begins now and runs through midnight Sept. 4. The winners will be announced Wednesday, Sept. 7. Full rules and details are after the break.
Just what is Waze? It's a free social mapping tool: you can get directions, find out where the traffic is, ping other users, and generally find your way around while helping other Waze users get better location and traffic information. Check out the full details on the Waze Blog.
