when it comes to subscribers' newfound love for data. Verizon has published the nitty gritty details of its second quarter earnings this week, revealing that data ARPU is up some 31.3 percent year over year -- undoubtedly a reflection on devices like the Glyde

will end up giving 'em more than enough ammo to propel back into the number one spot, assuming that it ends up getting approved.
