November 6, 2009, By Alex Ion

Verizon Midnight StoresRemember the latest Verizon commercial with the Stealth fighter jets dropping the bombs? Well it looks like the bombs are out and Big Red has officially started selling the Motorola Droid and the HTC Droid Eris at midnight in its flagship retail store on 34th Street in New York City.

Numerous reports so far have mentioned that Best Buy and Wal-Mart have already started selling the handsets from yesterday, in selective stores around the country.

So unless you got yours from the two big retailers, you’ll have to wake up early and be in Big Red stores at around 7-8AM if you want to be amongst the first to get your hands on it. If not, worry no more, Verizon is rumored to carry ample amounts of stock with the smallest shops having more than 50 units, while the larger stores range into hundreds.

It’s impressive how a mobile phone only revealed a week ago, the Motorola Droid, has managed to cause such a media hype: Verizon have played their cards brilliant, then Google came in and added a bit of salt and pepper by announcing the presence of Google Maps Navigation for advanced turn-by-turn navigation.
