    Hey all, just saw the new Droid X commercial: YouTube - Droid X is here

    The DroidLanding twitter page says: "Wonder what that code is for ..." so I took a screen shot of said code, which happens right when the counter hits 0:59 in the video. Thoughts as to what it is?

    The code is actually split in to two parts: JXYDA QWQYD

    It's hard for me to see on the video, but it looks like the J is red and all of the second half is red.

    J is red, XYDA is white, QWQYD is red

    I wonder what it means.

    JXYDA QWQYD -> Think Again.

    Poke around the website (droiddoes.com) for more. No hurries, it's just a teaser atm.

    Wow! I'm lost. I'm coming from the BlackBerry world so please excuse my ignorance, but is this some inside Android code/speak? How does JXYDA QWQYD = Think Again? And what does "Think Again" mean?

    So apparently someone cracked the mystery of the code. Over at the "DroidDoes.com" site, when you look at the tv spots for the Droid X, below where the video plays there is a box that you input the code.

    A screen pops up indicating that you found the "secret transmission" and to keep checking back regularly for new info. It also gives a scripted look at the commercials...

    Don't understand any of it. Afterwards it unlocks a new video, with an eyeball, kinda creepy.

    eyeball video is actually the precursor video for the scavenger hunt (led to the droidx twitter account) and for me at least was there along with the other video initially.

    Edit: I don't believe there was any code from the first one...if I remember correctly, everyone got all excited about the distortion at the end (07.2.2010 supposedly) and then realized it was nothing.

    If we're thinking about the same eyeball video, the "code" was just the @DroidLanding twitter account. Seeing as that same account said to look for a code in this video.........one can only wonder. Definitely something to keep an eye on (sorry I had to).

    If anyone finds out anything new, then please post it here ASAP, I am intrigued! :) I don't know if we are talking about the same "eye video", but I could never see the twitter account anywheres? I did see a reflection in the eye and I used a mirror to read what it said, but it was just "HDMI Output", which doesn't sound like anything juicy... :( lol I suppose if anymore information is released on this so called 'scavenger hunt', then it will be posted via twitter...?
