Droid X Teaser Commerical Arrives, Twitter Easter Egg Included [VIDEO]

The first Droid X teaser has landed online and it feels a little bit familiar.   The tv spot doesn’t do a great deal to “show” anything other than an eyeball.  Or does it?  Watching it in an almost frame-by-frame mode you get to see the reflection of some of the specs come across the eye, such as “HDMI output”.

I’d like to draw attention to my superior investigative skills and let you know about what I believe might be a new twitter account hidden in the commercial.  Right after the ad starts we see a quick glimpse of some texts written backwards which, when flipped horizontally, read as @DroidLanding.  Sounds like a twitter account, right?  So far, I am the first and only follower of a Droid Does account over there.  I feel pretty good that this might be a new source of Droid information once it starts up.  As of right now, there are zero tweets and a very generic profile/background.  Perhaps we’re ahead of schedule and aren’t meant to know it exists yet?

    I got a Tweet just a minute or two ago from the @DroidLanding Twitter account… looks like it's an official account!

    The DroidLanding account tweeted: "REPORT: Droid X units have escaped! Get the stats on them at http://www.droiddoes.com . Forewarned is forearmed."

    And the bio says: "The next generation of does is coming soon, but you might get yours before that. Droid X phones are hidden across the country"

    When it shows the date of arrival, if you go frame by frame for a bit it says 07.02.10, not just 07.2010. Could this mean it comes sooner after all? Like July 2nd?
