Verizon gives away 200 Motorola Droid Turbo 2 smartphones
If you like the brand new Droid Turbo 2 (announced earlier today by Verizon and Motorola), but you don't think you'll be able to buy it anytime soon, you have the chance to win one. More exactly, tomorrow, October 28, Verizon will kick off a virtual scavenger hunt dubbed Droid Seeker, allowing 200 people to win a Droid Turbo 2 each.

The Droid Seeker challenge will be available only to Verizon customers. To participate, you'll have to visit the Droid Seeker website (see the first source link at the end of this article), sing in with your Twitter account, and enter your phone number. Then, you'll "be introduced to a city at night, built of concrete and glass", and you have 30 seconds to find one of the 200 hidden Droid Turbo 2 handset images. If you find one, Verizon will send you a real Turbo 2.

As already announced, the Droid Turbo 2 will be available to buy on October 29 (this Thursday), starting at $26 per month, or $624 off contract. The smartphone is presented as the world's first to have a shatterproof display (5.4-inch Quad HD), while also offering high-end features like an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, a 21 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3760 mAh fast-charging battery.

What do you think about the Droid Turbo 2 thus far?

Just create a Twitter account if you really want to participate. It's free :)

Swing and another miss strike two... Anyways, there's a typo in the second paragraph that should be sign instead of sing.

How do you 'sing' into a Twitter account?

Probably one of the best phones on the market taking into account, processor speed, RAM, battery size, near stock OS, display resolution, additional Motorola software, "shatterproof" display, but I've given up on owning one because I won't be able to use it outside Verizon.

I'm not using Twitter either (that was something that lasted a week) and I'm sure as hell not going to sing! ;-)

I was number 22 to get access, but it froze when there were 12 people ahead of me. Apparently there's still 196 phones remaining, but website is clogged up.
