New Droid Ad Goes For iPhone Jugular, Misses

A new ad for the Verizon Motorola Droid tries to savage the iPhone for being more concerned with looking good than working great. Does it work?

I’m going to have to award this round to Apple. Form and function are not an inverse relationship on the iPhone. The worst thing about the iPhone is not lack of features or user control over the device, it’s the AT&T network. And, if you’re going to make an ad attacking another product for being shallow, shouldn’t you talk about the real functions that you are superior at performing?

“Buy a Droid, because it’s not an iPhone! Hells yeah!” is just as superficial as they accuse the iPhone of being.
