Android "Gathering" comes to Port City


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Have an Android smartphone and aren't sure how to get the most out of it? The Verizon Wireless Android Gathering was in town on Saturday to lend a hand.

The gathering happened at the Hilton Riverside hotel downtown. There were also special break out sessions where people went to learn about specific functions of their phones. People also took advantage of the "Consultation Corner" that was set up. People went there for one on one help with a Verizon representative.

Verizon reps say the turnout was good.

"We have about 170 people who showed up today its actually better than we expected," said Grant Reynolds, Verizon's District Manager for Retail. "The customers here in Wilmington are great and we are really glad to have them here."

Verizon hopes to make this an annual event.
