I was watching TV when a commercial for Verizon FiOS in NYC came on. I noticed that the Verizon installer was using an electronic gadget to keep track of his installation appointments. The gadget looked surprisingly like an Amazon Kindle. That’s when I realized that they must be testing an updated version.
Based on the commercial, we can see the following:
Same basic size and shape.
It will have a touch screen with cute little beeps when you touch it.
It will have either a backlit screen or a much brighter screen.
It will support custom applications like the Verizon FiOS installation application.
I assume it will be released in time for Christmas.
I’ve included the commercial and some large screen caps below.
