Ah, how clever. This Friday will witness a truly unique phenomenon as every number on your clock will be 11 for but a fleeting moment, and Verizon is taking advantage of it. Big Red's made it known that its much-anticipated launch of the Motorola Droid RAZR will take place on November 11th at 11:11AM. We've confirmed the information behind the scenes, but should receive an official statement from the carrier soon. This unfortunately is a day later than we were originally expecting, but the opportunity to take advantage of all these elevens only comes around once every hundred years, right?

Update: Just received the official statement from Verizon: "Verizon Wireless stores nationwide will open on Nov. 11, 2011 at 11:11 a.m. to sell the RAZR. The 11:11:11 is a fun way to commemorate the November launch of the first Droid on the Verizon Wireless network."
