The Ampe A10 is a Chinese tablet with a 1.2 GHz Freescale i.MX6 Quad processor, Vivante GC2000 graphics, and a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display. It runs Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and sells for about $220 at PandaWill.

But if you’re looking to save $220, here’s your chance to get one for free. We’re kicking off the Liliputing 2012 Holiday Giveaway with this quad-core tablet.

Ampe A10

As I mentioned when I reviewed this Ampe A10, it’s not the fastest around, and the build quality and battery life leave a bit to be desired. But it’s as reasonably zippy device which scores about twice as high on most benchmarks as, say, a first generation NOOK Tablet or Amazon Kindle Fire.

This tablet also has some serious potential as a developer-friendly device, thanks to its Freescale i.MX6 processor. Freescale has released quite a bit of documentation for this chipset, which could help developers write better, or at least different software for the device, or port other Linux-based operating systems to run on the device.

CNX Software has a pretty good overview of some of the available documentation and tools.

This contest is for the exact same unit I reviewed recently. That means you get the same dead pixel and screen bubble I found.

A set of headphones and a micro USB to full sized USB adapter are included in the package.

How to win: Leave a comment by midnight, 11/26/2012

All you have to do to enter this contest is leave a comment below — and make sure that I have a way to contact you by making sure there’s an email address, Facebook, Google, or Twitter account associated with your Disqus commenting account. I’ll contact the winners via email, Facebook, or Twitter, or Google+.

Entries must be received by midnight, Eastern Standard Time, Monday, November 26th, 2012.

Here’s a bit more print:

  • This contest is only open to residents of the continental United States (since I’m footing the bill for shipping… if you’re outside the US and willing to pay $20 or so in shipping costs, go ahead and enter, and let me know in your comment).
  • Please leave only one comment on this post. Leaving multiple comments will disqualify you.
  • Winners will be randomly chosen from all valid entries.
  • Winners have 48 hours to respond after they’ve been selected. If we cannot contact a winner, we will choose another winner at random.
  • Writers for Liliputing and their friends and family members cannot enter this contest.
  • We’ll be running a few more contests in the coming days — and you can only win once during the Liliputing 2012 Holiday Giveaway. Since this is the first giveaway, pretty much anyone can win.

Thanks to PandaWill for supplying Liliputing with this Ampe A10 tablet.

  12. Hey Brad, thanks for offering us a chance at getting our hands on the Ampre A10. In the spirit of giving, I hope I win this excellent tablet so I can sell it and give the money to several charities.

  54. Hey Brad. Hope you had a good turkey day. Thanks for a great blog. I stop by every day 🙂

  55. Nice early xmas present. If I don’t win, I hope someone deserving does, like one of those who lost everything in Sandy or a person serving in the military.

  56. A lovely little sweepstakes. I’ve become a daily reader over the last year or so.

  57. Hi, this would be a great gift for my daughter. I will gladly pay the shipping charges to the middle of the North Atlantic if I win.

  58. Could definitely use one of these! Thanks Liliputing! Y’all are the best.

  59. Liliputing is one of my favourite blogs and now one can even win something, just great! Oh an besides, I am looking forward to pay the shipping 🙂

    Keep up the great work.

  60. You mentioned in your review about the software upgrade that could probably fix some of the bugs. From PandaWill’s site, it’s running Android 4.0.4, an Ice Cream Sandwich version. In terms of upgrade, what is the upgrade cycle? Do you think a Jelly Bean update could be expected soon? A battery of 8 hours is nice. But from your review, it’s nowhere near that. Do you think it has a lemon battery of some sort?

    Ampe A10 tablet is a good starter tablet with its quad-core processor. It’s fine for browsing the internet. I’m fine with the sluggish response times for taps and gestures. I’m not even worried about that blue pixel, nor that center bubble. If it performs the tasks at hand, everything else will be icings on the cake. I hope I could win this. This will be my very first tablet. And nothing beats free! Thank you Liliputing and PandaWill in advance!

  61. liliputing became a huge part of my news reading rotation because of all the android on a usb stick product news.

  62. I am in and would even pay for the shipping here in the States. Has to be better than a 3 year old netbook.

  63. Hey Brad, I just want to say (even if I am not chosen) I really enjoy your reviews. Keep up the great work! 🙂

  64. I am in! just hope for some luck!

    PS. outside of US, willing to cover shipping

  65. Quad core on the floor and a half-way decent
    GPU and you’re well equipped to out-do the weather
    prediction as to which towns a cyclone system
    will rain upon and which it will leave dry.

  66. I’ve been considering getting a cheap Android device, just to start mucking about with the OS. Free is cheap. Thanx!

  67. I think the tablet is quite good and I definitely don’t mind spending $20 on it! Please count me in 🙂

  68. The Kindle Fire has really made my life a lot easier. I’m absolutely in LOVE with this thing! It is very user friendly so I didn’t have to go searching the internet for tutorials. Here’s the one I got on Amazon If you’re looking to get a tablet I’d recommend the Kindle Fire over the other tablets, it really blows them away. 🙂

  69. Hmm, 20$ or so doesnt seem too much for a tablet worth 200$, Im in, never won anything and this isnt probably to be any different, but its interesting to take part :D! Im from Europe.

  70. Count me in! One of my favorite rss-feeds, have a mele a2000, can’t wait till we get full xbmc on it! I’ll pay the shippingcosts to the netherlands.

  71. Will pay for the shipping to Finland, Europe. That is, if I win, of course. In that case, email pertsavk at gmail.

  72. Liliputing is the first RSS feed I look at each day. Love your reviews and news. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  73. When I win this Ampe A10 tablet, I am willing to pay these $20 or so in shipping cost to Belgium. Looking forward for the message 🙂

  74. Perfect tablet to replace my recently broken one 🙂

    From Portugal, but I won’t mind paying for shipping!

  75. Love Android computing on my phone, how much better on a much larger device! Thanks for holding the contest and providing such a great site.

  76. Of course. I could pay the shipping, or even better, an address in Laredo, Texas 🙂 …

  77. I would love to win this Tablet!

    … and also pay the shipping costs to Europe (GER).

  78. Great website, I really appreciate the good information you post here, I have bought several android “sticks” because of you….

  79. Nice tablet! Would love to win it 😉 I would pay for shipping to Europe (NL).

  80. Maybe it would be useful as a control point for a ham radio station.

  81. I read your blog everyday. Seems like I should be thanking you with some sort of prize rather than asking for one… (Don’t let that stop you anyway!)

  82. I’m definitely interested in trying out this tablet. I live in Canada but would pay $20 to have it shipped.

  83. Thanks for running the giveaways and spreading the thanks to viewers…(US Based)

  84. I’ve been reading your site since the en of 2008, but I had forgot about your contests, I hope to win this time 🙂
    P.S. I don’t live in the U.S.A, I have relatives living there though, so I would pay the international shipping or could give you a valid USA address.

  94. I would love to put me a Linux like Ubuntu for Android on this device! Pair it with some bluetooth mouse/keyboard and I can almost ditch my laptop. No more fan noise, yes!

  95. Well I was close to write the first comment but my old phone had die so I had need to reboot 🙁 This is why I will love a new Android toy. I’m from Madrid, Spain and ready to pay for the mail costs. Cheers

  96. Cool! I think my nieces from 6yrs, 7yrs, 8yrs & 9yrs old would love to have this. Anything, that looks similarly to iPad is an iPad! However, I am in Singapore but I do have a US delivery address if you don’t mind. Cheers!

  97. That Freescale i.MX6 still sounds like good SOC.

    I can’t wait for that hi-802 HDMI stick to start shipping.
