They get more money when they sell an Android phone as opposed to an iPhone. As was mentioned above the iPhone pretty much sells its self.
I'll bet this stops when the iPhone5 drops.
Assuming Apple has decided to embrace LTE, which they will...
Sure... if you're rounding Pi down to three. Please don't make me add 'rounding Pi down to three' to your list of crimes.

There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
If the reps were pushing the 3G powered iPhone and not the 4G android phones then there would be an article that android is being left out. It makes the most sense that 4G is promoted as the technology is truly better.

Not seeing the problem here. They're doing the honorable thing by making sure the customers get the best phones available. Why encourage people to settle for less? And who cares if Apple is left out once or twice. They've left out plenty of people and things, the company is evil. No fanboying, just facts.
Is Verizon contractually obligated to give equal time to the iPhone?
If not, they are at liberty to sell how and what they like.
I got no sales pitch either way when I bought my Rezound.
In my shopping I found that it kicked the iPhone's ASS!
It has 4g, a removable battery, a separate memory card to list only a few benefits.
Either one of the above would disqualify the iPhone for me, just like the lack of removable battery ruled out the Razor.
Frankly, I would WANT a salesperson to point out such strong weaknesses in the iPhone or any other phone.
this has been known for a while now .. verizon wants to push all 4g LTE phones over any other phone... they want a huge head start from the rival companies to have the most LTE users. to simply promote how fast it is!
I have not talked to a VZW Rep in the last six months that did not push the Razr! That is in store, chat or phone! Sorta like motorcycle cops being beat with chains before being sent out on patrol!
Morning staff sales meeting Mon-Sat, OK today we want you to push the Razr! As we still have a zillion in the warehouse! Maybe someone by mistake put a extra zero in a Razr order.

This article makes it sound like the iPhone is a better phone than the current line of top tier Android smartphones... Which is so not true. I can name almost a dozen Android smartphones that are better in every measurable way than the iPhone 4S.
If you are a customer walking into a Verizon store and you give off the impression that you are wanting the best phone, why WOULDN'T they try to sell you on Android?

yeah it has nothing to do with the people who already have an iPhone walking into the store or the fact that the iPhone has been out for 8 years or so now.
