    BGR has posted a preview of Verizon's “first-of-its-kind” interactive experience in New York City. In coordination with the launch of the new device, Verizon is expected to put on this event called “DROID Does Times Square.” This experience will let people control two of Times Square’s largest digital billboards — the NASDAQ and Reuters signs — using only voice commands.

    Yeah 4 screens in NYC is crazy, but allowing them to control it, now that's just awesome. I want to take a Trip to NYC now. :mad:

    Yeah I would love to go, hopefully getting a job not too far down the road from NYC. But I would love to see how they play it out. Awesome Idea for media attention.

    I'm guessing they'll have only two phones set-up controlling each screen respectively.
