I was out of the office yesterday, visiting one of our branch/remote offices. When I got back this morning I had a nice sized envelope from Verizon Wireless claiming a free gift inside. I always like things like this, and hoping to find an awesome deal on a Samsung SCH-i760 inside, I hurried to open it. Imagine my dismay when I saw this:

Verizon Calendar - Outside

So it’s not a coupon for a free i760, but instead, a calendar. Pretty disappointing, but hey, it’s a calendar and I could hang it on my wall. Then I open it up to find this:

Verizon Calendar - Inside

Gee, thanks Verizon! A year-long, one-half-page calendar with advertising on the upper-half of the page that will no doubt, be WAY outdated before December ever rolls around.

Now, if you’re a little nerdy and really want a good laugh, click on that second photo to view it on Flickr, and then click the "different sizes" link so that you can see the highest resolution available. Zoom in on the Treo (Fourth phone from the left for those who are not Treo-aware) and see if you notice anything strange. First one to post a comment identifying it, wins 1,000 Bonus Points. (OK, I really don’t have the authority to issue those, but hey, I can try, right?)

Guess I can keep dreaming of an i760, which, by-the-way, is far and away the greatest smartphone they have, and it’s not even pictured!

Yeah, they pictured a 755p (Palm OS-based) with what appears to be a mocked-up GUI that has the shiny, new Vista-ish Windows logo at the top. Very funny, at least to me.
