Replied in the forum also: No no paying. The givaway will be entered by tweeting my blog, liking the blog on Facebook, etc. All free ways to enter and people will be able to earn multiple entries each day.
I'm still in the process of getting 4 sponsors to fund the giveaway, but I expect to start the giveaway by the end of this month, and I wanted to know how much interest there was in the prize.
The giveaway will start as soon as I have all four sponsors so that I can purchase the tablets. I have 1 out of 4 so far and another two people interested. I'm hoping to have the tablets purchased by the end of this week. I will keep everybody updated however and will definitely make a post here to announce the start of the giveaway.
Let me know if you know anybody who might be interested in being one of the four sponsors. Lots of backlinks, tweets, and YouTube exposure will be going to the four sponsors url/profile/name/artwork etc.
