So When Do The “Droid Did” Verizon iPhone Commercials Start?

Maybe you heard, Verizon finally has the iPhone. Or it will, in a few weeks . And you know what that means: it's time to advertise the hell out of that bad boy. But don't be surprised if it's Verizon doing more of the pushing than Apple. Reports today have Verizon putting their significant "marketing muscle" behind the device in the coming weeks. This should be no surprise given what they've done for the iPad — a device which doesn't really even directly connect to their network (though that will change). It's also in line with what we've been hearing for month: that Verizon was getting ready for a huge push in Q1 around some new mobile product. The assumption has long been that this would be the iPhone.
