We have heard this over and over. “This phone is the iPhone killer”, yet whenever the phones eventually get released there is always something that doesnt put it into the same class, either its the app store or the simplicity of the iPhone that still keeps it as uncomparable to others. But Motorolla and Verizon are hyping up their “Droid” phone and directly attacking Apple’s iPhone in their ads. The phone will run Android 2.0 and Boy Genius is allegedly the only person to actually get his hands on one.
While those details are unconfirmed by Verizon or Motorola, the DroidDoes.com Web site and the TV ad for the campaign highlight that the Droid offers several important features, including multitasking, a replaceable battery and open development — features that the iPhone has been criticized for lacking. The TV ad attacks the iPhone in various ways, saying the following:
- iDon’t have a real keyboard.
- iDon’t run simultaneous apps.
- iDon’t take 5-megapixel pictures.
- iDon’t customize.
- iDon’t run widgets.
- IDon’t allow open development.
- iDon’t take pictures in the dark.
- iDon’t have interchangeable batteries
With Windows Mobile revamping and upgrading their system, Android becoming a real player in the market, and the iPhone still untouchable, the smartphone consumer’s smile just gets bigger and bigger.
