Let the smartphone wars begin. The name Droid came from Star Wars and Verizon
's sales force will be in full force with 'the Force," for selling the well-reviewed Droid X as well as other full-powered phones.
Leaked Verizon documents show some price drops except for the soon to be release released Droid X. The campaign slogans for The Droid X wax poetic with Star- Wardian catch(kitsh) phrases such as "high octane fuel for your eyes" "immense appsphere that powers your way past mortal peers" and "Witnes your own evolution right before your ecstatic dilated eyes."
If you don't get ecstatic and dilated by the Droid X,
the other price-lowered data phones may be more your lower octane fuel.
Some phones qualify for Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) while other s are
Buy One Get Any Free (BOGA).
Here's what Verizon will discount:
- LG enV Touch reduced to $49.99 after $100 rebate, BOGO -
