I have to admit I am more than a little excited about the chance to scavenge out my very own Droid X, but other than the ongoing tweets from @DroidLanding little has been known about just how this viral marketing contest would occur. If you noticed that the tweets coming from that account have been growing more specific and steady in the past day or two, that’s because you wouldn’t have been able to even locate one of the 21 prized handsets before today. Verizon has posted up the official rules for the contest and now we have a better idea of just how the Droid X units will be located.
The official period for the scavenger hunt runs from July 7th until the Droid X’s release date of July 15th. And oh, if you thought you’d actually be stumbling across a shiny new Droid X hidden behind a flower pot or in a trash can somewhere in a city near you, you may be disappointed to know you are actually only hunting for a certificate that will allow you to redeem one at a later date.
[thanks to Kevin (great names think alike) for the heads up!]
