The Droid goes on sale this Friday and Verizon wants to make sure everyone knows about it.Â The nation’s largest carrier has some special things in store for customers that only start with extended shopping hours.
Most of Verizon’s stores will open at 7:00AM or 8:00AM Friday so customers can get an early chance to purchase the DROID on its first day. Be sure to check with your local store to make sure they are taking part in the early access hours. If your Verizon store happens to be in a mall, you’ll have normal business hours that day.
Verizon is also planning a first-of-its-kind interactive experience in New York City. Called â€œDROID Does Times Squareâ€ the experience will allow callers to control two of the largest digital billboard (NASDAQ and Reuters) using only voice commands. Passersby will see a toll-free number (1-888-376-4336) that can be called to search the Times Square area for movies, restaurants, food, etc. The results will be displayed on digital billboards using Google Maps.
This experience will run from Nov. 6 through Nov. 20th, daily from 12:30 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. and from 6:30 p.m. to 8:10 p.m. and from 6:00 a.m. on Nov. 27 through 2:00 a.m. on Nov. 28.
Fans around the world can witness the experience online at www.droiddoes.com/timessquare.
