Instead, they have launched Viva Movil with Jennifer Lopez.  Undoubtedly an awesome idea, particularly for the burgeoning Latino community, but still, this announcement was not even close to what most of the known world was hoping for.

 

For those interested in Viva Movil, the site is now live.

If you're a Verizon customer interested in the One, this is undoubtedly disheartening. You do have the opportunity to voice your concern with your wallet, though, as there are those of you who may switch to other carriers because of this. At least they're offering the DNA for free, which is a great device I had the pleasure of using for a few weeks earlier this year.

I do not see this working, the only way this works is if they change their tagline................................

I mean we all know why they are using her as a celebrity endorsement :P

The only thing missing from this "Disaster" is Ben Aflleck (Gigli).

Some interesting tidbits regarding Verizon's lack of a One, courtesy of TechRadar.  According to Senior Global Online Communications Manager Jeff Gordon,

 

 

"It's always a great thing to have our phones on as many operators as possible, but we've got nothing to announce in terms of Verizon."

 

So not much explanation (as expected), but hey, at least they addressed it.  I guess.
