    This is seriously the dumbest thing I've ever seen. A 3rd party retailer designed for latino.

    "Latinos shop with their kids, so we will have ares for kids to play while latino parents shop for phones". What?

    I agree. Are there really latinos who aren't buying phoens because they aren't comfortable in a "white" store?

    Funny how we have kind of round tripped it back to separate but equal as a society in a more justified fashion. Stupid.

    I love how she just said the store will have lots of cases and covers in lots of fun colors. This is so bizarre.

    thats exactly what i said. do latinos not have cell phones? i mean, im pretty sure that everyone i know has a cell phone, no matter what race. and they didnt need a store specifically catered to their race to do it

    "What will your participation in this be?"

    "Uhm...ill make the cases, and uh, decide how the stores look..."

    Pah.

    I normally dismiss such things as political chafe, but agree in this case.

    Added: Seems Verizon are coasting now on their install base and making no serious effort for current customers.

    Yeah, they just ruined my hopes for that. They decided not to create their own device because they are "recuperating" from the 18 months they spent planning this.

    Well, that (One) made more sense than what they actually announced.

    Not even an Uno.

    I'm literally laughing out loud here. IT was the most bizarre, awkward PR I've almost ever seen. Jennifer Lopez was wierd and seemed like some person who was just along for the ride (which is true, I'm sure, it's just her name to the store to try to build success).

    Her info was bizarre. Like, "More latinos shop with their kids so they need a store where kids can play".
    Or, "Latinos are a fast growing population on Facebook. That is why we need a mobile store"
    or, "Latinos want a social shoppingexperience where they can get reviews". Really, Amazon and every tech blog out there doesn't count?

    This is just such a cheap, stupid engagement. They have no special phones, no unique plans (which reporters asked, interestingly; I think to see if any of the other rumors fed into this somehow).
