Here at Crave, we've been patiently awaiting the launch of Verizon's Wireless V Cast Mobile TV . And after we reported last week that all signs were pointing to a March 1 launch , we now have official (in a roundabout sort of way) confirmation that the game is on for Thursday. A sharp-eyed Crave reader pointed us to the coverage map section of the Verizon Testman Web site where V Cast Mobile TV is noted as launching on March 1. (To see the map, pick your city and then click the "V Cast TV" box on the bottom of the page.) Though the coverage map doesn't indicate coverage cities, we've heard that the initial launch will have a mostly Midwestern focus with such locales as Chicago, Minneapolis, and Kansas City. We've been bugging Verizon for a few days to give us a full list of launch cities as well as the monthly rate, but so far we've heard nothing. Stay tuned, we'll keep you posted.

Thanks Austin.
