Apparently, some advertising guy decided to put a full featured smartphone to use as an ad in the Entertainment Weekly magazines, worth around $80 retail. It's a REAL phone - you can place a call with it, and there's a camera attached. However, only 1,000 of these magazines were distributed, and they can only be found in NYC or LA.





Right now, I have a (somewhat) verbal commitment for KermM to try to get me one. Anyone else interested in nabbing one of these guys for their hardware projects? Very Happy
Basically, I need to try to find a newsstand that carries them, and at 4pm on a Sunday, I don't really have a good chance of finding a lot of newsstands that are open. However, when I go to work tomorrow, I can pass four newsstands and/or delis with magazines along the way, so I can look for it then. Don't get your hopes up; 500 magazines in a city the size of New York is a needle in a haystack.

Any luck? Very Happy
Check your time, it's not 4p Eastern yet.
Welp, I just spent an hour going to various newsstands and book stores. All of them had no Entertainment Weekly or the October 12th one, I'm sad to say, so no luck. Sad
