Is that the Trophy? I can't quite tell. I know it has soft keys and a camera button there, but my sister keeps hers in a case, so I can't really tell.

Maybe you can't recognize it if you don't know what to look for but Verizon took the picture from an Android phone and superimposed it on the Trophy.

Haha! Which store was this at? I'm out in Henderson, I'm going to check the store over here by me.

Did you ask them about how to dual boot?

Haha, that's ridiculous. You'd think the ad firms would have someone technical look over the copy before publishing.

I doubt this ad was even created in-house at Verizon. Often this kind of work gets sent out to a company that may also print the marketing materials.

Actually, I meant within Verizon's corporate offices. Whether someone noticed it was a Windows Phone they were putting an Android screen on or not, it happens either way. I used to work at a place that did direct mailing and I worked in graphic production. Sometimes these things happen accidentally. Of course, sometimes accidents happen on purpose. :cool:

If it really bothers you guys, alert someone at Verizon, Microsoft, and/or Google PR.

Chances are whomever created this has no idea that it's incorrect. They were just told to put a smartphone screencap on it. Just because they're a designer doesn't mean they're technical.

You are suggesting a Verizon manager at a Verizon corporate store, (this one is) hired a designer to take the likeness of an existing product they sell and superimpose an image of a competing product on top almost completely obliterating the Windows Phone. But its cool because the designer isn't smart phone savvy? Sounds like you are referring to an 8 year old designer that doesn't speak the language. :)
