Verizon Airs Another Anti-iPhone Ad : "The iPhone Is An Outdated Toy"

November 8, 2009


Wow, Verizon just dropped a new anti-iPhone ad and it's getting really dirty. The first one was already edgy, then came the "there is a map for that" one which ended up in a lawsuit. All this added to persistent rumors of a Verizon compatible iPhone, we could honestly expect this to stop.

Well, not at all, Verizon comes back harder than ever and attacks the device by pretty much saying it's an "old toy" and throws AT&T's 3G coverage map in the mix, they are so desperate... Here is the ad:

Nonetheless it is great marketing, this Christmas themed ad is going to get a lot of buzz which is exactly what they are aiming for. AT&T's coverage does suck but unfortunately our staff tried the Droid this weekend and it's still far from being as good as the iPhone, especially in terms of user experience.

Needless to say, you won't be seeing an iPhone on Verizon anytime soon ever.

The business of business is business but come on, this is just mean, what do you think?

[Update, there are a few of them actually]
