    Well that was fast! The DroidLanding Droid X Scavenger Hunt has begun, in speedy fashion, and in NYC nonetheless. Only six minutes after announcing the GPS coordinates of the first giveaway, Droid Designate #4 was found, on Pier 66 in Manhattan. The lucky winner is Francis Choung. Not really sure how Mr. Choung got to the spot so quickly; early theories are suggesting teleportation. Anyway... everyone stay tuned for the other 20 Designates! Now that you know what you're expecting, be ready!

    Make sure to follow DroidLanding on Twitter, and read up on the rules and instructions before attempting to join in the fray!

    And here's the happy Francis Choung, in all his glory:

    They announced the coordinates at 4:29. The Droid X was "found" at 4:35. 6 minutes.

    I HATE contests like this. A guy like myself who doesn't live in a "major metropolitan area" likely has no chance of scoring a free Droid X. The closest one to me is probably 4 hours away. And I live near the Capital of my freakin' State, too bad no one treats it like the Capital.

    i typed it up fast. maybe it wasn't clear. the clue was given at 4:29, and the phone was found at 4:35. they only announced it a half hour later, while everyone was still scrambling to find it.
