DROID causes Midnight-Madness in Manhattan Verizon Wireless store
November 6th 2009 is "D-day"...for "Droid" that is. A few hours before the Manhattan store opened at Midnight, a crowd started to gather outside. Once Midnight got closer, there is said to have been well over 100 people in line, waiting to break the doors asunder at the stroke of 12. Finally the wait was over, and Verizon allowed 25 people to enter at a time for purchasing of the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris. There were 13 sales reps and 4-5 Droid Specialists on-site to make sure everything with smoothly during the 2-hour pre-dawn event. Verizon Wireless spokesman David Samberg commented that the 34th Street store alone had at least 500 Motorola Droids as well as some HTC Android Eris phones. It is no suprise that there was such a turn out, as Verizon has been on a non-stop media-blitz over the past few weeks, with a dedicated web site, TV commercials, and Newpaper ads. For the rest of us, the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris can be purchased via the Verizon Wireless web site, or by visiting your local Verizon Wireless or BestBuy store.
