The Pantech Discover isn’t a flagship device that may turn a lot of heads, but we determined that it was actually one of the best — if not the best — budget-friendly phone we’ve reviewed. Available for $ 50 on AT&T, it sports a 720p display, 13MP camera and a few other tempting specs. Pantech was kind enough to offer one to our readers, so head below to our widget to enter! Entries will be accepted until 11:59PM ET tomorrow.
Note: comments are no longer accepted as entries to giveaways. We’ve begun using Rafflecopter for our contests, so now you have the ability to put in more than one entry!

To be eligible to enter, you must be 18 years of age and a U.S. resident (please peruse the full rules). Get your tweets in by midnight EST this Sunday night for your chance to win; we’ll choose 5 entries at random to each receive a free pair of tickets.

TechCrunch Disrupt NY is right around the corner! We have already announced many influential speakers, including Kevin Systrom of Instagram, Roelof Botha of Sequoia Capital, Ron Conway of SV Angel, Kevin Ryan of Gilt Groupe and will be announcing many more soon. You can view the whole list of speakers and special guests we have announced so far here. Disrupt NY is going to be an amazing show. We are giving away one free ticket to the show that will get you into the full three days of the conference, plus all of the after parties where you can dance and drink the night away with us. We also are going to give away a Nest learning thermostat. The Nest is better than your regular thermostat because it can actually learn your daily schedule, and program itself to change heating and cooling patterns accordingly. It knows when you’re away and when you’re at home, and using it can lower your home’s energy bill by around 20 percent. You can also connect to the Nest remotely via the Nest Mobile app for Android and iPhone and change the temperature even if you’re on a business trip on the other side of the world. This second-generation version is compatible with a lot more home heating and cooling systems, too, and smaller than the first-gen device. Want a shot at winning both? All you have to do is follow the steps below. 1) Become a fan of our TechCrunch Facebook Page: 2) Then do one of the following: – Retweet this post (making sure to include the #TCDisrupt hashtag) – Or leave us a comment below telling us what your favorite thing is about New York City The giveaway starts now and ends next Friday at 7:30pm PT. Please only tweet the message once or you will be disqualified. We will make sure you follow the steps above and choose our winner next Friday. Anyone in the world is eligible.

The presents are piling, the fire is cracking, the drinks are flowing and in some parts of the world the snow is falling. From all of us at TechCrunch, we hope everyone is having a merry Christmas. For this week’s giveaway, we wanted to do something extra special, because well, it’s Christmas! The lucky winner of this giveaway will win a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 10. Want them both? Details to enter are below.
We’re guessing the wrapping paper is already back in your closet where it will say till next year’s festivities, but that doesn’t mean more tech goodies are out of the question. Our holiday gift guide giveaway runs through December 31st at 11:59 PM ET, so be sure to leave a comment on each of our 14 guides. Depending which contest you enter — and you should probably just enter them all — you could ring in the new year with an AT&T smartphone such as the HTC Windows Phone 8X, LG Optimus G or Samsung Galaxy Express. In any case, here’s hoping your holidays are happy and bright!
We’ve given away a few iPhone 5s in the past, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to hand out a GSM-unlocked version. Also known as the A1428 model, this particular iPhone will get you HSPA+ on any GSM network around the globe as well as dual-band LTE (for use on AT&T in the US and Rogers, Telus and Bell in Canada), and it’s thanks to our friends at CloudOn for offering the chance. CloudOn is a free iOS and Android tablet app that lets you create, view and edit Microsoft Office files and link them to Dropbox, Box and Google Drive, so head on over to the App Store or Play Store to check it out. Before you do, however, leave a comment below to enter! If you’re looking for ideas on what to say, CloudOn wants to know what would help you become more productive on your iPhone — perhaps you can toss them a few of your ideas. Good luck!

A lot of you out there have been anxiously awaiting the holidays, and — more importantly — an excuse to get your hands on the latest iPhone. In fact, the demand is so high that Apple is still experiencing inventory shortages. We don’t want that little niggle getting in your way, of course, so we’ve teamed up with five different companies to get you set up with an iPhone! So here’s the deal: beginning Monday, we will begin one new iPhone 5 contest every day through Friday. Some of the contests will feature the actual phone (carrier branding may vary), while others will offer an Apple Store gift card to cover the cost of buying one without a contract.
You can enter each individual contest once, giving you five separate opportunities to win over the course of the next week. So be on the lookout starting Monday, and make sure you come back every day to increase your chances of winning! Below you’ll find the companies involved, so that way you know exactly who to thank for your new toy. This post is not a contest, by the way, so leaving a comment here won’t enter you to win. Just make sure you’re back here bright and early on Monday — believe us, there will be plenty of other awesome news to check out that day while you’re here.
Note: this next week is going to be a pretty hectic one, so we’re going to keep each contest open for five days rather than the usual two.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note II is one of the biggest phones this year, both figuratively, and literally. The OG Note stretched palms when it arrived last 12 months ago, with its 5.3-inch display, and it proved so popular that Samsung did it all over again — and a little bit more. Not only is it hot off the production presses, we’ve also got one to give away to a lucky UK reader, courtesy of the kind people at online retailer MobiCity. That’s where to send the thank you card if it’s your name out of the hat. And if it’s not? Well perhaps peruse their many SIM-free handset deals and treat yourself all the same. Want to know if you’re eligible to win? Head south for the rules, and then get involved!
- Leave a comment below. Any comment will do. Duplicate entries will be filtered out and discarded, so adding additional comments won’t increase your likelihood of winning.
- This contest is open to all UK residents — aged 18 years or over! Sorry, we don’t make this rule (we hate excluding anyone), so direct your anger at our lawyers and contest laws if you have to be mad.
- Winners will be chosen randomly. One winner will receive one (1) new Samsung Galaxy Note II. Service does not come included with the prize.
- If you are chosen, you will be notified by email. Winners must respond within three days of being contacted. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen.
- This unit is purely for promotional giveaway. Mobi-city and Engadget / AOL UK are not held liable to honor warranties or customer service.
- The full list of rules, in all its legalese glory, can be found here.
- Entries can be submitted until 10th of October, 2012 at 23:59 GMT. Good luck!

Vizio pulled off something amazing when they introduced the Co-Star, the first Google TV box that features OnLive gaming as well as Netflix, Amazon and YouTube. It’s a set-top box that can literally fit in the palm of your hand and ships with a clever, dual-sided QWERTY remote. Plus, it sold out pre-orders in the first 12 hours it was available.
