DROID Does Times Square
To celebrate the launch of the DROID this Friday, Nov. 6, Verizon Wireless is creating a unique interactive experience that allows New Yorkers to control two of Times Square’s largest digital billboards – the NASDAQ and Reuters signs – using only voice commands. The billboards will instruct passersby to call a toll-free number (1.888.376.4336) to search for something in the Times Square area. The search results will be displayed on the digital billboards using Google Maps.
