New Verizon iPhone Marketing Campaign Mentions 4G? About to Hate on the Android LTE Parade?

Ewww is all I have to say to this image.  I hate to report on this subject, but when it comes to this phone on our carrier of choice and all of the reports of Android plateauing, it affects our Android world and we can’t help but toss it out there for everyone to see.

What we’ve got in the image above, is a box full of new marketing materials for Verizon stores that mention the word “4G” and “iPhone” in the same sentence.  We’re not saying this means that an iPhone 4G is planned or on the way, but that could be one possibility.  Truthfully though, we’ve heard from two sources with the box that say it’s misleading as hell and that the materials included only mention the 3G iPhone.  So what we’re really thinking, is that this is the launch of a new campaign which will try to sell customers on the idea that a 3G iPhone 4 is better than any of the 4G Android offerings currently available.  Yep, pretty gross.

At some point over the last couple of months, I told myself that there couldn’t be a set of commercials that were more pretentious than, “If you don’t have an i*hone…well, you don’t have an i*hone,” but that could be changing.

Update:  We’ve seen some of the materials that were included in this box and they make no mention of 4G and the iPhone.  What a sham of a marketing box.  Moving on!

Sort of a random post I know…

Cheers M!

    AT&T’s fastest upload speed edged out Sprint’s fastest upload speed
    of .91 Mbps.

    There is a similar confusion I often hear about “prescription drugs”. Lots of people know that misuse and overdose on prescription narcotics cause a huge number of deathsevery year. … It’s my opinion that the root of our prescription painkiller problem today is physicians who don’t know or don’t understand the addictive effects of the medications they prescribe, and aren’t willing to deal with the addictions of their patients. Over-prescribing of opiates and narcotics has led to a rise in the

    If you’re a Sprint or Verizon iPhone 4S customer traveling
    internationally, you can buy a pre-paid micro-SIM card with dramatically
    cheaper rates for data and voice calling, rather than pay for
    international roaming offered by U.S. carriers to their existing
    customers.

    Mobile marketing is the next big thing in the world of marketing. It is not hard to see why: Even if the computers are already very personal objects to display custom content adaptive, mobile phones are the real jewels of the human world.

    I also guess the time to start my local VZ trolling and think that talking about the iPhone 3G is better to get medieval on Android and 4G them. :]
