Apple tried to drag the Droid X into their little antenna debacle and Motorola is going to make them regret that decision. Their latest ad which will be hitting newspapers soon openly mocks the need for Apple owners to wrap their iPhone in a jacket just to use it as a phone.
In case you can’t read the small print from the ad above it says:
At Motorola, we believe a customer shouldn’t have to dress up their phone for it to work properly. That’s why the Droid X comes with a dual antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like to make crystal clear calls without a bulky phone jacket. For us it’s just one of those things that comes as a given when you’ve been making mobile phones for over 30 years.Motorola PR
While Steve “No Porn” Jobs may be happy to keep everyone in his App Store covered up I think he would prefer not to have people dwelling on the fact that his carefully crafted (if ill conceived) design has to be marred by a plastic housing.
Samsung got in on the act with their free Galaxy S phones for dissatisfied iPhone owners and now Motorola is throwing their own punches.
Is it time to let up on Apple or do you think they are getting what they deserve?
