It seems that Verizon’s very own Motorola Droid, the Google Android 2.0 powered phone which will hit the market in November, is all set to battle against Apple’s iPhone. The raging war has already kick-started with Verizon spitting out the first venom at Apple via their advertisement campaign. Motorola Droid, the phone which is billed by the sources an an anti-iPhone has already triggered an attack of sorts, thereby causing an upsurge in the tech/gadget arena.


According to the sources, Verizon’s most recently launched attack against Apple’s iPhone was observed through “There’s a man for that” advertisements which reportedly made a mockery of AT&T’s 3G coverage in the US. Sources revealed that Verizon’s recently launched ad campaigns are quite powerful in content and have somehow pointed out certain features that iPhone doesn’t have but Droid has.

According to the reports, in the most recent commercial which was aired on “Engadget”; Verizon surfaces with the similar themes of iPhone thereby launching a direct attack, exposing various features that iPhone’s lack. The iPhone bashing does not surface as a surprise as Verizon has already been known for criticizing iPhones for some reason or the other. Certain portions of the hilarious ad campaign that is actually meant to promote Motorola Droid included phrases like “iDon’t have a real keyboard”, “iDon’t run simultaneous apps”, “iDon’t have interchangeable batteries”, and “iDon’t allow open development”. Then a tag line appears which says “Droid does”. The commercial then shifts its focus as the promo of Motorola Droid appears on the screen.

But with Apple coming up with the next generation LTE network, the tech world is quite anxious to see how Verizon can live up to its words.

You mean, there’s a “map” for that, right? The Verizon guy is good, but not as good as those stinging coverage maps.
