DROID RAZR Scavenger Hunt is Underway – Coordinates, Devices Images, and This Recording Included (Updated)

As many of you know, a new scavenger hunt powered by the folks behind @DroidLanding has kicked off for the DROID RAZR. The schematics of this contest seem to be a bit up in the air still, so as always, just be sure to follow that Twitter account to stay up on it. We will also do our best to keep up with it.

The first clue that was dropped last night, asks that you dial **RAZR311 which will get you a voice clue along with an image. To listen to the voice message and see where the coordinates of that image lead you, jump past the break .

After it finishes, the image at the top of the post is what you will receive via text. The coordinates on the bottom of that image direct you to the map we have embedded below. Confused as we are?

Update:  Another tweet has gone out.

Update 2: Reader @kevineats put the puzzle together…

Cheers Adam and everyone else!

    phone message references Genesee park

  • My guess is Austin Tx, which is the headquarters of Actacell Corp. They make Lithium ion batteries and the message mentions how the phone still has power.

     ActaCell: Having raised $5.8 million in a Series A round led by DFJ Mercury and joined by Google.org last summer, ActaCell has been working toward a 2010 commercial launch. ActaCell’s devices, which it expects to have a longer cycle life at lower costs than the competition.

  • Is there a thread/forum for this?

  • rfrobuidge is an anagram of big red furor

  • Anyone else notice the the pilot shares a last name with the guy from the Charge Landing hunt?  Odd.

  • These clues make as much sense as advertising a smartphone with a bullet cutting things in half.  The motorola crew is definitally a different breed :-0

    • Anonymous

      it’s not a bullet, it’s a razor….get it?  Droid RAZR…

  • all of these pointless competitions are the same…

  • Guest

    Googling the pilots name brought up some articles from the Bionic hunt as well

    • Guest

      I apologize its from the Charge

  • Anonymous

    What a BS puzzle. I don’t find it useful at all.

  • Anonymous

    I tried it but I don’t get how it works

  • Legoturtle92

    isn’t there also a contest on the droid does site? Something with getting facebook likes to remove lazers

  • Will Heineman

    Anyone speak Chinese? Re-look at the Razr commercial and look at the left side @ 0:09! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYJ9Fg3waWE

    What does it say?

    • Anonymous

      It said:
      “12 Beckett St
      The whole floor for rent”

      I don’t think it is a clue. It’s more like an ad posted on the wall in San Francisco.
      Why put DroidLanding there? I would say to cover up the real number in the ad.

      If you live near by, feel free to go check it out. Lol 😛

      • actually its @droidlanding , its the twitter acc for this scavenger hunts…anyway nice eye

  • i dont get it 

  • Nate

    Put the puzzle together and the pilots name is  “frobuirdge” search that name and you get a bunch of stuff from the Charge Landing days??

  • Corpus Christi, TX  is 1300 west of hillsboro bay, FL

    • flight time is 4 hours 45 minutes so really that would be 4.75 x 477 MPH which is more like 2250 miles – er.. Tuscon, AZ?

      • Guest

        Fuel on board is 4.75. Flight time is 2.75

  • message says hillsboro bay
    1330 miles west from hillsboro bay
    anyone?

    • Trecherus

      Roswell, New Mexico is ~1,366 miles west of Hillsborough Bay

  • Bro

    Why do people keep asking if I’m mad? I’m actually quite happy

    • Mad, Violent, Brutha

      What’s your secret? Pr0n?

      • Happy Bro

        dont listen to him. Thats an “imposter” I’m the real happy bro

        • Confused, Mad, Violent, Brutha

          I’m so confused.

          • Happy Bro

            I am the real Happy Bro. the other bro isnt happy. And when Mctypething is asking if U r mad bro he is looking for my brother Mad Bro. but he died a long time ago

          • Mad, Violent, Bro

            All this happiness is making me want to touch myself inappropriately. 

          • That was weird.

  • Atcbrownie83

    its a bogus flight plan.  It is a listed as a VFR plight plan at 18000 feet.  the highest any airplane is allowed to go on a VFR flight plan is 17500 feet.

    • Atcbrownie83

      also the aircraft callsign is listed as N1233DB which is 1 character too many.

  • Nelsonjosepha24

    The first one is pics of kevlar, which is made by dupont, guess who’s at the coordinates… yep, dupont

  • 415 knots = 477 MPH
    477 x 2 hours 45 minutes (or 2.75) = 1310+ miles

    • for the flight – so where ever the flight originated here the “landing” could be where the next clue is… yeah real dumb

  • Ivan92116

    If the past Droid Scavenger Hunts are any indication all these clues are just marketing fluff and gets you nothing. The real game starts when they release the Official Rules, which there are legally required to do.  Fun to follow but I wouldn’t put too much time into it yet.

  • tbaybe

    that looks like a fun puzzle to put together…. 

  • Anonymous

    this is better than the Droid Bionic game….I nearly crashed trying to get those damn things…

  • It brings you to the entrance to Dupont, the makers of Kevlar……….Interesting!

  • is it just me or does that plant when you zoom out a little kinda look like the razr

    The Droid DOES website has a grabbing game (much like those UFO catchers), but to make the game easier, you need people to “Like” them in facebook.

    • Anonymous

      Yep, did it without the Facebook stuff.

      • You managed to grab the damn phone?  Amazing.

      • Anonymous

        And? After grabbing it the game does what?

    the email I got from Disqus when you replied says “UNREGISTERED”…you’re an imposter

  • KRSwon

    +1 for Richmond. I didn’t see anything here, I believe it’s just because Kevlar is made here.

    • adam

      That makes sense… DuPont is right at that location according to Google maps…

  • FortitudineVincimus

    Amazing people really have enough free time in life to participate in crap like this.

  • Pcll4678

    It has something to do with the pictures’ numbers.  The normal pattern is 8/4/01 through 8/4/12 but some are changed.  That’s all I got.

      • Happy Bro

        no I’m happy bro. Mad bro died a long time ago.

      Wouldn’t that be the day. I’d have to crack open a bottle of the finest 5 dollar champagne and have a celebratory drink.

  • That is right by my aunts house, I should tell her to go check it out. Maybe she will find a razr

  • Anonymous

    This is only 10 minutes from me, I could easily go check it out but I’m guessing it is as others have said, just the entrance to Dupont’s campus..

    Do I need to go over there?

  • like others said its the coordinates to Dupont facility. Can we expect more similar maps? Maybe Corning…

  • WarEagle

    So we know where they are getting the Kevlar backing. How is that going to help us when there is no web site to enter this in? When is Moto supposed to open that site up?

  • Anonymous

    Just off of I95 in Richmond VA.

  • lame. how about the coordinates to a G-Nex?

    • even if we had coordinates to the nex it probably wouldn’t be exact, because sammies GPS units aren’t very reliable or accurate. The RAZR’s are spot on however lol.

      MOTO FTW

      • Anonymous

        Hopefully that barometer will help with their gps

    • Someone join me in flagging all of these G-Nex posts on stories that have nothing to do with the main topic.  This pollution is bullshit and ruining stories for people who actually want to talk about the subject at hand.

  • After dialing that number, my phone is tweeking out…trying to open the picture message….

  • Anonymous

    I just don’t get why they are starting a damn scavenger hunt contest just a week before the phone’s release. Just doesn’t make a hell of a lot of sense.

  • Kevin Bojarski

    Coordinates are a Dupont (makers of Kevlar) facility in Richmond, VA.

  • Kevin Bojarski

    Coordinates are a Dupont (makers of Kevlar) facility in Richmond, VA. 

  • Jeff Hamm

    What state is that in? I’m assuming somewhere in the sith?

    • Darthseph23

      Google Maps (via the link) says it is Richmond, Virginia.

  • Rp780

    WTF???

  • coordinates are the DuPont Kevlar plant

    • From the other view you can see the name of the plant
