The glove are off. After attacking AT&T, Verizon just released a commercial attacking/mocking the iPhone as an 'iDon't' device that doesn't have a real keyboard, can't multitask, can't take 5-megapixel pictures, can't take pictures in the dark, can't customize, can't run widgets, and can't...

BGR has their mitts on the Motorola Droid and was kind enough to record it booting up on video.

 This may simply be coincidence but the other Verizon-bound Android device just cleared the FCC the same time the Motorola Sholes did. In this case, it's the HTC Desire, a device we saw leaked via a Verizon inventory document earlier in the month. Like we said before, a HTC-built, Android-powered,...

And coming from a company like Motorola,...

Verizon CEO Re-Confirms Verizon Android Devices

 Verizon has a great network in the United States. However, Verizon also has perhaps the weakest product line among all US carriers. This combination often leads Verizon customers to clamor for the next big phone launch, hoping & wishing that it'll be for Big Red. And though they're usually...
