Verizon website promotes Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C

Verizon website promotes Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C
If you're a Verizon customer, you might remember when the Apple iPhone was not offered by Big Red. Those were the days when a variety of feature phones like the LG Voyager, Samsung Glyde and LG Dare were the closest thing to the iPhone that the carrier had in its line up. Now, of course, Verizon customers can walk into their local Verizon retail outlet and pick up the Apple iPhone 5.

Now that the Apple iPhone 5C and Apple iPhone 5S have been introduced, Big Red has dressed up its web site for both of them. The nation's largest carrier is expected to begin accepting pre-orders for the pair on September 13th with the device scheduled to be in customer's hands on September 20th. The 16GB Apple iPhone 5S is $199.99 with a signed two-year pact while a similarly equipped Apple iPhone 5C is $99.99 with the same signed pact.

If you're interested in the next iteration of the full-priced iPhone, or the mid-range model, you can check out the slideshow below. After all, you can't expect that Voyager you've been rockin' since 2007 to last forever.

They'd better not completely bury the G2 tomorrow. I want to see that phone take off like the rocket it is.

Very mature, beefcake. As a Verizon customer, what they do to their website and which devices they choose to promote over other is relevant.

Nothing wrong with Verizon posting a "guess what we got coming" all over their web page. They are going to do it with all of the hottest sellers.

If its not part of the Droid line or have a i in front of it I doubt any real advertising.

Not related but if you're a criminal (or no gooder) would you buy a phone with a finger print scanner? What stops the government from telling Apple to break into your phone to tie your finger print to incriminating evidence? This might back fire on Apple. Privacy awareness is at a all time high. I personally love the idea but I'm a angel.

did you have this same thought when the finger print scanner was introduced on the atrix? or your fanboyism keeps you from looking on your side of the fence? STOP HATING

Atrix was not on Verizon. And that was before this NSA crap. Times have changed.

Make sure you post the same thing when Samsung adds a fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S5.

If Samsung adds a fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S5 most of the ppl will deactivate it. Be sure.

I really don't see it happening because of all the negative publicity in the news. And I don't think Google has a uniform way of controlling this and I don't like the idea of 5 Android OEM's coming up with their own solution. You either do it right for every Android device (near impossible) or don't do it at all. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that Apple bought that fingerprint company before all the NSA leaks happened. Bet they didn't expect the backlash over the collection and monitoring of our electrical devices.

That's not how fingerprint scanners work. They create a hash from your fingerprint that is stored locally. It never leaves your device. It's a hash, so your fingerprint can not be gleaned even if the hash was made public.

that sounds hard to believe. hash algorithms are very sensitive to changes in data. 1 byte change equates to a large change in hash value. images (essentially the thumbprint scan) will not produce identical data each scan. so how can apple produce identical input (images) that would match the pre-stored hash. consequently there would need to be some sort of approximation work going on to make deductions based on probability and standard deviation from a training value.

keep believing this. LOL. Fingerprints will be collected in the same place where your bank info is collected.
