    On June 21st, a mysterious Twitter account appeared, by the name of DroidLanding, which seemed to be affiliated with Verizon/Motorola and its upcoming Droid X. The first tweet, a rather mysterious one:

    So, over the past 2+ weeks, DroidLanding has slowly been leaking hints as to where Droid Xs' are "landing." These clues seemed to fit a scavenger hunt. And yet other theorists surmised these tweets may have something to do with early released Droid X's in Alabama yesterday.

    Well today, Verizon Wireless officially announced the Droid X Scavenger Hunt, and as such has recognized the validity of DroidLanding (and now we know, this has nothing to do with the Droid Xs' arriving early in Alabama). Scattered across the nation are 21 certificates, each redeemable for a brand-new Droid X at launch (on July 15th). DroidLanding will be tweeting clues on a regular basis, up until just before launch. The final clue will be GPS coordinates of the certificates, and contestants will have four hours to retrieve the certificates.

    Here is an excerpt from Verizon's Official Rules:

    Sounds like fun? Follow @DroidLanding, and pay attention to the clues! Make sure you read the complete Official Rules here before attempting to scavenge.

    Thanks diebold for the tip

    Well I am pretty sure they will be in major metropolitan areas so I am not even gonna bother. Can't see them planting one at Dover Downs, Dover Air Force Base or at the statue of Ceaser Rodney. LOL

    it would be nice if they at least gave a state since there is only 21 certificates and 50 states.

    I put this up before seeing the twitter, so these are just wild guesses and some are wrong after reading the twitter clues.

    Close enough for what? Do you really think you will have time to drive to DC and find it before anyone else does after there is a clue good enough to pinpoint it's location?

    The hint that gives away NYC is the one about the birthplace of Stan Lee. I'm not so sure about that one.

    I do know there's one in my state, I just don't know which part of the state, the clue gave no hint towards a location only a state.

    Bet the certificate will be in Union Square (NYC)... Famous and crowded, so it would be a challenge to find it, but not as hard as it would be if it was in Time Square.
