This morning, Verizon and Motorola held their DROID event and introduced two new DROID devices to their line-up. These are the DROID Turbo 2 and the DROID MAXX 2. In terms of the former, the DROID Turbo 2, this one comes boasting the better specs, the bigger battery and also a “shatterproof screen”, adding to its durable nature. As well as the unveiling, Verizon and Motorola also announced that the DROID Turbo 2 would be available to buy starting from this Thursday, October 29th, online and in-store from Verizon.
Well, in preparation for the launch day, Verizon has also now announced a competition where 200 lucky winners will not only be able to win a free DROID Turbo 2, but will be able to do so a day before the device hits Verizon store shelves. The competition is being dubbed “Droid Seeker” and is essentially an online scavenger hunt. This is part of Verizon’s #WhyNotWednesday program which offers customers exclusive content and experiences. Verizon has said that those interested in taking part need to head to the Droid Seeker website on Wednesday at 12pm EDT. To be clear, the site is not live yet and does not look like it will be until tomorrow, so if you head over there now you will just see a 404 error. Once the page goes live, according to the details, those taking part will have thirty seconds to search a virtual city to find one of the hidden devices. If they find one and tap on it, they win it. Once all 200 have been found, the contest is over. So it is rather straightforward. Although, how long the contest will remain live for is another question. Either way, if you’re interested, make sure to head over to the link tomorrow morning at 12pm EDT. However, there is one big caveat, you do need to be a Verizon customer and will have to enter your phone number to verify that you are.
If you need a reminder on what you can win, the DROID Turbo 2 comes with a 5.4-inch display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution. Inside, the DROID Turbo 2 comes equipped with 3GB RAM and comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor. Additional features on offer include a 21-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with a 5-megapixel front facing camera. The battery on offer is a 3,760 mAh battery and the DROID Turbo 2 makes use of Turbo Power charging, which is said to offer 13 hours of usage in a quick 15-minute charge.
