Verizon to aim DROID X marketing to men

Verizon to aim DROID X marketing to men
Verizon to aim DROID X marketing to men
When Verizon started marketing the Palm Pre Plus, the carrier aimed the device right at women. We suppose that if the webOS flavored phone strikes Verizon's marketing staff as being female, the powerful, massive, fast Motorola DROID X is the male equivalent. Some leaked documents handed out to Verizon employees focus on what you might call the male characteristics of the handset. With NFL Mobile coming pre-installed on the phone, every bone-crunching, brain jarring tackle can be viewed on the 4.3 inch display that is featured on the DROID X. The HD video is "high octane fuel for your eyes." The marketing sheet adds that with the handset, you will be able to unlock an immense appsphere that powers your way past your mortal peers. Verizon, better lay off some of the testosterone talk or else too  many wives and girl friends will be putting their foot down and won't allow the so-called alpha male to buy the device.

What self respecting man lets his girlfriend/wife tell him what he can/can't buy? My wife and I have family money and personal money. I buy whatever I want with my personal money and she does the same.

App power is 2,000 fart apps + 20,000 sound board apps. I love the androad OS but the app market is a disappointment

Really? You have got to be kidding me! A massive 4.3 inch touch screen phone is being marketed towards men? Who would have thought so!?

This must have been courtesy of the eager college interns who are either GF-whipped or still attached to their mommies by the umbilical cord.

Phones are marketed toward one specific sex. Its marketed as on that works well, which is what a customer is looking for, and found with the Droid phones. To bad the iphoneaholics got the iPhone 4g released with so many flaws. Like a screen that breaks after 12 inch fall, and a major issue with reception. People you can say what you want about VZW but they put devices thru the most rigorous testing that's why they are released with so few issues.

That is such bologna. It's a powerful phone so it's for men? I think not. I'm more Technologically minded any man I know. ha ha. And besides, it's a BEAUTIFUL phone.

You'll probably need a purse to carry it, anyway. Even my man sized pockets seem a little afraid of the Droid X.

Droid x is meant for men and the iphone is meant for females. Women just love how small and shiny it is.

No, actually it's meant for people with big hands and big feet so you can grip it with your monkey toes.
