The darndest things can happen when you don't have your marketing and product development groups on exactly
the same page. Case in point: this ad, astutely observed by a reader and sent in. It clearly depicts a phone that doesn't exist -- at least not officially. The closest analog we can draw to it would be Alltel's LG Glimmer
, though it doesn't share the Glimmer's chin below the keypad. Our guess, honestly, is that some Photoshop wiz slapped an oversized VZ Navigator screen shot on a Venus
, added a stupendously huge Verizon logo below it just for effect, and called it a day. Anyone else want to chime in on this?
