We are still 30 days away from the Droid R2D2 launch and Verizon has already begun the heavy promotion for the new device. Today, Verizon has starting sending out emails titled "You're our only Hope" announcing a new contest @ DroidLanding. If you didn't receive the email, here are the details:
We'll help you get started on the missionGreetings Rebel,
Many Bothans died bringing you this transmission:
The plans for the DROID R2-D2 have been intercepted by sinister agents of the Empire and scattered across the internet.
Intrepid members of the Alliance who succeed in uncovering the lost schematics will be rewarded handsomely - with a new DROID R2-D2 device.
Clues will be dropping soon, in many places and in unexpected ways.
Monitor R2-D2's transmission @DroidLanding
to get started.
If you need help translating Artoo, maybe
C-3PO can help.
The first clue posted on their twitter account was nothing more then a url that directs to: R2D2 Transmission 2P2TZO19F99SOWWZDX8VIO1ACS7XVGBER61FBRCOR371MONSWT. Once you have arrived at that url, you'll hear an audio clip of r2d2. Hmm..
Clicking on the C-3PO link takes us to a page to help us translate the url.
R2-D2 IS REPEATING INFORMATION FROM THE BATTLE OF YAVIN, UGH... SOMETHING ABOUT UNITING THE CALL SIGNS TO FORM A CIPHER
COULD HE POSSIBLY MEAN THESE? Picasa Web Albums - Luka Kurtz - AttackPattern...
Thanks for the tip Shadez!
