In case you haven’t been paying attention, Verizon Wireless is sponsoring a nationwide scavenger hunt that began today as a promotion to coincide with the release of their latest Android superphone, the Droid X. It is open to anyone, 18 years of age and older, who reside in the 48 Contiguous United States. It ends at 11:59:59 ET on July 15, 2010.

21 certificates for a free Droid phone will be hidden across the country from now through the 15th. Clues to the whereabouts of these certificates have been posted on the @DroidLanding twitter account since late June and these clues will continue to become more and more precise, ultimately leading to a final clue that includes the GPS coordinates for the precise location of these certificates. Participants will have four hours from the time the final clue is posted to find the certificate and follow the instructions to claim the prize.

I took some time to review all of the clues that have been listed so far, so that you can at least know what city each certificate will be based in. Feel free to leave comments on here to help me finish the list as more clues are given to us.
