Los Angeles Man Finds a DROID X During Nationwide Verizon Wireless Scavenger Hunt

Todd Leykamp wins highly anticipated Android device before it hits stores


IRVINE, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Find the DROID X and it’s yours. That’s just what Todd Leykamp of North Hollywood did this Monday. Leykamp participated in Verizon Wireless’ nationwide scavenger hunt to earn bragging rights as he got his hands on the company’s latest Android phone, the DROID X by Motorola, which is not available for purchase until this Thursday.

The hunt was announced and executed on the company’s Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/droidlanding, which currently has over 22,000 followers. GPS coordinates were provided at 1:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon and participants inserted these coordinates into Google Maps to lead them to the DROID X’s destination – the famous Pink’s Hot Dogs in Hollywood, CA. Los Angeles winner Todd Leykamp found the DROID X in 56 minutes! He followed the scavenger hunt closely via Twitter in hopes of winning the DROID X in time for his 29th birthday. Leykamp is excited for the bigger screen, faster processor, and increased memory for applications on the DROID X. Similar events are taking place throughout the country in different cities.

DROID X by Motorola gives customers a 4.3-inch high-resolution screen for viewing the latest movies and video from BLOCKBUSTER On Demand(R) presented by V CAST Video, the newest addition to the Verizon Wireless V CAST application, which also includes access to favorite TV shows. The video capabilities on the DROID X allow customers to capture spontaneous fun, combining a dual-flash, 8-megapixel camera, HD camcorder, as well as DLNA and HDMI connectivity to download, stream and share personal HD content. It’s a phone designed to give users a sharper sense of vision, one they will need to find DROID X devices hidden in unexpected locations across the United States. DROID X by Motorola will be available at http://www.verizonwireless.com and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores beginning July 15 for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement.
