Verizon’s NFL Mobile App Will Cover 2011 Draft, is that a DROIDX2 in the Commercial for it?

So Verizon, where’d the camera button go on that DROIDX in your new commercial?  That wouldn’t be a DROIDX2, would it?

As many of you know, it’s long been rumored that the new DROIDX2 would lack a physical camera button since the on-screen one does a fine job by itself, but is there any chance that Big Red would slip it in a commercial weeks before it has even been announced?  At first glance, we certainly thought they did…and then we stumbled upon the 19 second mark while going frame-by-frame and found a red blotch lookin’ as DROIDX-y as ever.  Hypebeast.  

Oh, and if the 2011 NFL Draft is of interest, feel free to get all of your coverage from the NFL Mobile app.

    It is not a X2, it is just a photoshop.

    The Verizon logo at the bottom is way to big, and there is no microphone hole in the front middle.

    Lazy CGI, didn’t look like there was a top power button either. Prob not meant to be the X2 just coincidence.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t get it. I can’t stand the on screen camera button. It just doesn’t feel right, I much prefer to have a physical button.

      Lol And I’m the opposite. I can’t stand the physical button. It keeps getting pressed accidentally and the long delay between it and the actual shot is unacceptable. The on screen button is only press-able when I bring up the camera and the delay is considerably shorter. I guess to each there own.

    “feel free to get all of your coverage from the NFL Mobile app.” – Unless you have the Thunderbolt!!! I have no idea why, but when I purchased my Tbolt the salesguy told me it wouldn’t work and sure enough the app says “NFL Mobile is not currently supported on this device”

    Screw you NFL… I hope the league goes on strike for the season (at least until you enable the Tbolt!)

    • Mike

      Yeah the My Verizon app doesn’t work for the Thunderbolt either.

      Go figure – Verizon launches LTE in 30 NFL cities … yet their first LTE phone can’t run the NFL app. Major blunder by Verizon. Makes you wonder from which pet store they bought the hamsters that run their marketing and operations groups. They didn’t execute this well at all, and are giving seriously mixed messages to customers by launching in those specific markets yet not supporting the use of that tech within those markets.

      So is it the NFL, HTC or Verizon keeping the Tbolt from having it? I purchase the Tbolt then found out it would get the NFL, Vcast Video, My Verizon services or Swype. Sent it back and now waiting to see how the Samsung Charge looks. To be continued.

      • Rbess1965

        typed too fast and wanted to be clear. I purchased it then found out it would NOT get NFL. Sorry.

      Droid 3 looks like a dope device.. Droid X2? if it’s gonna look the same, it’s a lazy effort on Moto’s part. I got tired of my Droid X’s looks after a few months. lol
