The new Droid isn’t really better than the iPhone, though it has some features that exceed the iPhone. It’s not really credible to keep claiming that Droid is better. But perhaps much more effective is the idea of attacking AT&T’s network, which has been a regular source of frustration to iPhone users.
Here’s a representative example:
AT&T has sued Verizon to stop what it claims are misrepresentations about its network coverage in this series of ads. The ads will likely be modified or discontinued as a result; but while the suit moves forward Verizon continues to land blow after blow. The commercial above is both humorous and very effective in terms of the message it’s trying to convey.
Update: Apparently the ads are working and negatively affecting perceptions of the AT&T network and brand.
