    I opened up the contest page, saw the picture, and closed out about 10 seconds later. Screw that.

    And supposedly the first one is the easiest. Guess I won't be winning one. But at least we have the 21st as a release date. Hopefully

    As of 5 minutes ago, @GalaxyNexus had just 146,000+ followers. Better than the lottery if you can decifer the puzzle.

    I like almost impossible puzzles better than super easy ones. Then at least the person who gets it, would have earned it.

    Looks like Mensa members will be getting free Nexi :rolleyes:

    I was invited to be a member of Mensa, but I refuse to associate myself with so-called "geniuses" who spend their time creating and solving complex puzzles to show each other how smart and clever they are. With all that brain power, they should be solving world hunger or something! THEN maybe they'd be relevant enough to join. Oh well, some of them will get a free phone... that's one plus, I guess LOL

    I don't know, because the colors are in the same order as the google logo.

    I took each number of dots on each Android and mulitplied them together because of the * (common multiplication symbol). When I did, I got a zip code. 73728 - Cherokee, OK.

    true, but when you type those numbers into Google that's the first thing that pops up anyway...

    What if it doesn't mean anything, and is just an abstract picture. Google is just gonna judge who had the most creative entry, and they win. :)

    Well it's international as in anyone can win it. Doesn't mean that they couldn't use the US Zip code system as a hint.

    That's because when you go to Google you automatically get directed to the U.S. Google if you are in the U.S. if you are in the U.K. for example you get a whole separate page. So search result would be most likely different. (Tailored to the U.K.)

    Yep! There's you and two other folks, and you beat them by 11 or more minutes.

    By the way, if it's right, the only thing that might mess you up is the fact that you submitted it twice. If they go strictly by the letter of the rules, the second submission can disqualify you. I think you got close enough in your first submission.

    True, but that doesn't mean international people couldn't think to look it up in U.S. zip code! Just trying to be optimistic :)

    Yeah true. Don't get me wrong I hope you are are correct I was just putting in my 2 cents for what its worth. I'm not gonna bother even trying to solve the puzzle. I need to give you props for coming up with that because I never would have.
