    Not sure of the significance of this but I was just on VerizonWireless.com and usually one of the flash ads at the top is for the Droid. Not anymore. I would have thought that this would remain a flagship device at least until the N1 hit Verizon if not even longer.

    I wouldn't think that not having it on the homepage no longer makes it a flagship device. Is there a better featured Android device currently on Verizon?

    Sigh....this is how bad rumors get started. I don't think it means anything, I think they changed their home page. They do this frequently.

    Wasn't starting a rumor which is why I started with "I'm not sure of the significance of this" I come to this forum to get information not put down because I noticed something that I didn't understand and brought it here to see other peoples opinions if there were any significance to it or not.

    The marketing dollars spent on ads/billboards/commercials is what brings them new customers. Not front page visibility.

    They need to get OTHER product some visibility since the ads/billboards/commercials cover their flagship.

    You'll notice as well all the ads on the net dedicated to the Droid. People click through to find the Droid not a Blackberry or LG etc etc.....

    Don't know about others, but using Firefox on my desktop system I frequently wait and wait and wait and wait for the VZW website to link to another web page. A click has now been "loading" for five minutes.

    If I chose my phone on the basis of the competence and usability of the carrier's website, I certainly wouldn't be a Verizon customer.

    +1 to this.

    And this is (to repeat what someone already said) exactly what we mean when people start rumors and also get people in a tizzy over nothing.

    You didn't mean to start a rumor, but this is exactly what gets the ball rolling in that direction. And my response was in no way meant to put you down, I'm expressing what I think is going to happen as a result of the post.
