It's the Summer of Honeycomb and we now have two lucky readers who have won Eee Pad Transformers thanks to our friends at NVIDIA. Congrats to AnandTech reader unbellum for winning our second Eee Pad Transformer. Be sure to respond to my email to claim your prize! If you didn't win this time, don't worry - there are still two more chances to win.

With our Eee Pad stock depleted, we're switching over to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as our giveaway this weekend:

While the Eee Pad was our practical recommendation, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has the sleeker form factor. It's thinner, lighter and just nicer to carry around as a result. You don't get the flexibility of the Eee Pad, but if you weren't planning on buying the dock then the Galaxy Tab is a great Honeycomb option.

Now the basic rules. The contest is only available to US residents and you're only allowed to enter once. Just respond to this post with a single comment describing how you'd use a new Honeycomb tablet if you won. Please only respond once! For full details read below.

Entries will be accepted from 1:15 PM ET on July 29, 2011 through 11:00 AM ET on August 1, 2011. Winner will be selected by August 5, 2011.

Good luck everyone :)

    Wish I could say I knew what I would do with a new android tablet. I currently have an aging G Tablet that has served me well for the time that I have had it. Thanks to all of the Devs out there that made it possible for my current tablet to be as good as it could be. With that said I guess I would enjoy the better viewing angles of a new tablet as well as better support from the maker. Android is such a great OS! Just wish the venders that are out there would support their products better than they do and those of you that have one know what I am talking about too. Now Asus seems to be on top for keeping things up to date and it would nice to some of the others do the same. Notion Ink also seems to push the updates but getting one and getting good customer service are still an issue. If Nvidia wants to corner the market for tablets, they are gona have to step up along with Google to work out the current bugs between the each of them. We have a good format between the sizes out there, there is great hardware being supplied, but support from the big guys is not just there. Ya I would love a new tablet! I would use it just like I do with my aging one, and sorry to say I would prob be wishing for the support that I cannot get now. Reply

    use the samsung tablet to watch "TV", play games, surf the web, email, chat and maybe even do some work with it, although it'll mostly be for entertainment. What would be cool would be to be able to play games interactively with other tablet or smart phone users. Reply

    I'd finally be able to find an answer faster than my wife, who constantly schools me by whipping out her Droid Incredible...

    I've owned an iPad2 and got rid of it when I tried out the 10.1! Reply

    I'd use the Tab for pretty much everything, I don't find much need for a traditional PC outside work anymore Reply
