Yeah, you still can't actually order or even pre-order the darn thing, but it's nice to see Verizon throwing up a big ol' splash screen, pimping their first Windows Phone.

Gosh, you read that thing and it almost sounds like Verizon is excited about this launch. Almost. Though we do have to credit angling the whole Xbox theme is probably the smarter way of selling Windows Phone to the masses. So kudos on that strategy, Big Red.
