Verizon’s DroidLanding Twitter account has just awoken from its 1-year+ slumber. While only initiating at the current moment, we expect a new round of fun contests and possibly even a device launch to follow. The last “Droid” we’ve seen on Verizon was the HTC DROID DNA which, unfortunately, received little television air time.

So, what exactly does Verizon have up their sleeve? Well, it could be the upcoming Motorola Moto X, rumored to be launching this summer across all major carriers in the US. That, or maybe even the recently confirmed Verizon Wireless version of the HTC One. Can’t say for sure… you guys have any guesses?

UPDATE 1: Another tweet has been posted saying, “Augmented Reality imaging matrix is online ::: Scavenge mode detected…” Looks like we’re going to have another scavenger hunt on our hands!

UPDATE 2: We now have a video. Looks like DroidLanding will be using another augmented reality game called D:Com Mission Alpha (the same guys who made the Bionic Hunt ARena app in 2011) to help with the scavenging. Video below.

    Please let the Droid brand die. I’m tired of explaining to people that all Droids run Android but not all Androids are Droids lol…. (They stare back at me with glassy eyes.)

    • ari_free

      And that is why Verizon will never let it die.

    • DavidCuza

      I hate verizon so damn much for their stupid branding

      • Covert_Death

        intelligent branding more like…. im sorry but the DROID branding took android to new levels whether your are happy with it or not

    • NIGHTSCOUT

      Some Android phones are Droid’s, you have your facts wrong….

  • Jeff Messer

    I thought my tweet was funny, so I’m posting it here… :P

    @DroidLanding ::Initiating delay protocols ::: Verizon bureucracy at 115% ::: Android 4.0 to be deployed ::: Eventually :::. ..10101. #droid

    • PhineasJW

      ::: Tethering disabled ::: Verizon Navigator installed ::: Bootloader locked ::: Initiating 2-year contract

      • Toasted_Cracker

        ::: limiting data to 2gb ::: prism activated ::: money transfered ::: NSA notified

      • guitarist5122

        Actually, I was free to tether at my will without any modifications or tether plan. I believe Verizon allows it for those on teird data plans in hopes we’ll go over our limit. Also, my Note 2 is completely unlocked thx to our wonderful xda devs

        • Covert_Death

          correct, only our grandfathered unlimited plans cannot tether because as per contract, the unlimited data is specifically for that device only

          • Max

            actually im still grandfathered in and got free tethering using foxfi until i upgraded to ics, now foxfi costs money although its a one time fee, havent had a reason to spend for it yet. and its not like i had to root or do anything illegal just download from play store

          • Jerel Butler

            Rooting is legal its your phone do what you want with it

    • LiterofCola

      Meh.

  • Lil fucker

    It means titties

  • Jan

    I really, really hope it is the moto x with an attached keyboard.

  • ari_free

    I’m sure it will be the phone you’ve been waiting for, the most amazing phone ever produced…the Moto X.

  • BMF

    ugh. 2009 redux. die droid die.

  • WickedToby741

    So is this Verizon’s version of the XFON?

    Perhaps Verizon’s version of the One?

    A Verizon version of the S4 Active (Droid Charge 2)?

    Of course it’s probably the Casio Droid Commando 2.

    • Matthew Merrick

      Actually, Casio Droid Commando is incredibly possible. Or The Droid Elite By Kyocera, seeing as a hydro variant called the Elite for Verizon has been rumored/leaked for quite some time.

      • WickedToby741

        Yeah that’s another possibility. I could see the Droid brand becoming Verizon carrier devices made by the likes of Kyocera, Pantech, and ZTE. The interest of the big Android players making carrier specific devices is waning especially with Google’s ownership of Motorola.

        • Matthew Merrick

          Ohh, that’s another one. ZTE devices in the US aren’t even OEM branded – they usually list the manufacturer AS the carrier (EG, Sprint Force). I bet VZW would love that.

          • WickedToby741

            Exactly. They get to custom tailor everything. It kind of amazes me we haven’t seen it yet.

  • bob

    Lame

  • MITM

    These are not the droids I was looking for

  • Bizzle9

    The “Droid” ads are just embarrassing at this point.

    Pacific Rim?
