What the hell is the "5 Manhattan Boroughs?" It's the 5 New York City boroughs, Manhattan is a borough itself. Who writes this stuff?

Thank you Verizon. The only beneficiaries here are we folks with 4G Android phones since, there's really no one lined up at any of the Verizon stores that I've seen thus far this morning to buy the "New" pad. I even went into the Verizon store on West 34th, right after my shopping stint at Macy's, and there was only one Asian girl testing out one of the two "demo" units. I was playing with the other one; changing the default ringtone for everything to "Bark". (woof-woof)

I'm reading this article while working at a Verizon store. No Ipad buyers here. I'm totally ok with just 4G smartphones. When we sell 3G phones, even though our 3G is as fast as some other carriers 4G, it's still not that great. Once you've tasted 4G, there's no going back.

Agreed, it's just better for us 4G folk. At least Verizon's got the "demo" units out (for the lost iSouls looking for that mAssiVe upgrade).

Yep i work for verizon didnt have one person even come in today for one nor did i have anyone asking all this past week if we were gonna have them. Seems like everyone is gettin mad with the crappy upgrades that arent worth spending 600 more for

Yep, and I think that Asian lady I saw looking at one earlier today left Verizon and crossed 34th Street to enter Macy's; maybe she decided to hit The Cellar, instead.
