Definitely not a "premium" device, but the Dell Streak 7 with Android 3.2 will be on sale for $160 at bestbuy.com, tomorrow only. Not a bad little device for such a low price point, especially for people who like the 7" form factor.

Again, there's a huge problem with the all-encompassing classification that you are giving to Android apps. There are a TON of apps that are worth paying for. Those are the apps that the question was about.

Good thoughts, Ken. I appreciate you sharing them. Still though, while Android itself is an open-source software, most of the applications are not. The few open-source applications that do exist in the market ARE free AND ad-free. We can't expect to have so many application options if we want every application to be open-source as well. These are people that are trying to make a living with their trade. They have to pay just to be able to publish their apps in the market. The code they use to create their own apps is proprietary, not open-source.

Yeah, people shouldn't try looking for the certificates right now. These initial clues are really just in place to help people figure out which particular certificate to focus on. I'm based in Dallas, so I now know to focus exclusively on #5. Until the @droidlanding account posts GPS coordinates, which could now be anytime between now and the 15th, there won't be a Verizon rep out there with a certificate.

Not yet. It probably won't be in any actual stores. They'll post the actual GPS coordinates somewhere between now and midnight on July 15 for each certificate. There will be a Verizon associate at those coordinates for four hours after they post them. Keep your eyes posted to the @droidlanding twitter account for when they post the coordinates for #18.

Yeah, hard to tell right now, since the clues are so vague. We'll figure it out as things progress, I'm sure.

Oh man, they put a clue twice that #12 rocks, so I knew it mattered, but I couldn't figure out why. Now I feel stupid, haha. Thanks for the help!

Well, the clue says that it is NEAR the largest cement plant, so it could potentially end up in Detroit, Michigan.

Thanks for that clarification.

Are you sure. The clues for #17 (so far) are "Near a major metropolitan area" and "Near the home of the world’s largest cement plant." By my research, the largest cement plant is in Missouri.
