Verizon turns customers into walking billboards for the DROID

Verizon turns customers into walking billboards for the DROID
It might not be a Dior or even an Arrow shirt, but what cellphone fanatic wouldn't want to own the latest in handset attire? We're talking about the new DROID DOES t-shirts being given away by Verizon to selected owners of the world's only Android 2.0 phone. It's a win-win situation as you get a new shirt to add to your Three Stooges top and Big Red gets walking billboards. And assuming that those who bought the DROID hang out with similarly-minded individuals, the chances are that those who see you wearing it will also come up with the bread to buy their own unit. While Engadget says that Verizon is mailing the shirt to customers, a quick conversation with a rep yielded the info that it is the stores that are now in charge of handing out the shirts. So if you happen to be near your local Big Red store, see if you can score a DROID shirt for yourself.

This is part of a thank-you promo for folks who buy in-store. The shirt is shipped to the customer later.

I totally agree. I'm a big fan of Verizon and Google's Android phones, but I would not be caught dead wearing this shirt!

Verizon is going all out with advertising the Droid. This is probably the most advertising they've put in a phone. Seems almost desperate.

Yeah, advertising a new product does seem desperate. I mean who would of thought of bringing a phone down to that level where you advertise it. Must mean Verizon is on the edge of failure.
