Typos fixed, Verizon's Nexus One has no Sense
Yesterday we showed you Verizon's Equipment Guide for the Nexus One that showed that Big Red's variant of the phone would have Sense UI on top of Android 2.1. Apparently, the document contained some typos including listing the wrong Snapdragon chip and an incorrect URL for Google's online phone store. Verizon corrected the typos and Android Central has the corrected edition which shows that while the N-One will not be sold at Verizon stores as written, the handset will NOT be equipped with the Sense UI. You would think that Verizon would have a proof reader, but perhaps it was just wishful thinking on the part of the carrier.

It's interesting that Verizon is being credited with fixing a "typo" when it has never even been on any Verizon website. Now, unless this person happened to be on that exact site when the exact page happened to actually be there, at that exact time it existed, and happened to actually take these screen shots during that fleeting point in time, twice, these are fake. There is no page. No fix. No proof reading. Period.

Or perhaps it was a simple typo and sites such as this needs to stop making mountains out of mole hills by reporting every damn rumor as if it's a fact!

I guess this is what happens when you post anything and everything, PhoneArena.

This page does not even exist in equipment guide. I don't understand how some sites do not even try to verify any information with someone that actually works for the company they are leaking about.

The screen shot seems highly suspensious. I matched it with current equipment guide pages & there r somethings not right w/the verbage. Hard 2 imagine someone going through the trouble of getting the source page and deal with html. Talk time is measured in hrs & not mins. Is 1 example.

I agree. Also, no other touchscreen smartphone says accelerometer as a feature. It looks like the person who did this ran out of ideas to fill up the page so they added things like this.

Every time I see the title end in "?" in these blogs, it just screams credibility? Question mark & sarcasm intended.

Seriously..... This isn't in infomanager at all yet.... Unless this is a page under development, don't believe it....

This is totally fake. Look at the listing for supported audio formats, then look a couple points down. It says MP3 capable. Thats just stupid to put it in there twice. Next, I dont remember on the stock Android handsets, them putting in anything that says "Google Experience UI". Also, the page does not exist in Infomanager. To whoever made this and submitted it, I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Yea...you would think Verizon would have excellent proofreading just like you would think PA would have the same level of onpoint proofreading...but as many typos that I see on this website on a consistent basis...seems like both companies need to start posting jobs for more accurate proofreaders. I'm just saying PA...don't be a hypocrite.

All of you who claim to work for verizon and cannot find this in info manager or equipent guide are NOOBS! This has been in the equipment guide for atleast a week. Seriously you guys who have been working for vzw for more than 90 days should stay away from technology. Its too much for you. Again in eq guide this is very easy to find! Don't worry phonearena I got your back.

Apparently you dont work for Verizon either. When you go to equipment guide all you do is click one tab to find out which phones are coming soon. You dont have to look for it. Its right there in a list. The picture has been photoshopped. Its a fake. And you are a fake supporter.

wow... so phonearena is actually trying to make verizon look bad by saying they posted an article on their own phone on a site thats not its own... hmm.. oh and phone arena, the site always putting up false rumors full of typos is really one to talk. take the log of wood out of your eye before telling someone to take the splinter out of theirs...

And I will add one more voice within VZW saying FAKE! That page does not exist in our info.

This is such bull. I have searched up and down infomanager and still no luck. This has to be a fake. Wish it was otherwise.
