Jackets are for sissies: Motorola takes a stab at Apple

Motorola’s full-page ad in the New York Times makes it clear that the Droid X doesn’t need any add-ons to work properly. The add states, “At Motorola, we believe a customer shouldn’t have to dress up their phone for it work properly. That’s why the Droid X comes with a dual antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone anyway you like to make crystal clear calls without a bulky phone jacket.” It’s clearly a dig at Apple, who was forced to give out free cases to solve complaints about antenna issues with the iPhone 4. Will the ad convince disillusioned Apple fans to toss out their iPhones like rotten fruit? Or is the fact that Motorola bowls without bumpers nothing new to celebrate?

    The iPhone is a lousy phone with several issues that should have been recalled and dealt with not Bandaided instead. Get a Droid X which is far superior to this!!!

    How many of you iPhone users out there have actually noticed this problem effecting your calls ?

  3. Mike says:

    The iPhone is a great product, but it is hampered by only being available on the AT&T network and now this glitch. 6 months from now, both will be fixed and these issues will be forgotten.

    Absolutely! It’s like a gold mine for Apple competitors.

  5. Adam says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if another company has an ad similar to this one, it’s such an easy way to make their phone seem better than iPhone 4 to consumers.
