Motorola takes another swipe at iPhone 4, 'no jacket required' for DROID X

Advertising wars are so much fun! Late yesterday, Motorola took another swipe at smartphone rival Apple, capitalizing on the free-case fiasco of the iPhone 4. In a Facebook post, the company displayed a poster that read:

At Motorola, we believe a customer shouldn’t have to dress up their phone for it to work properly.  That’s why the DROID X comes with a dual antenna design.  The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like to make crystal clear calls without a bulky phone jacket.  For us it’s just one of those things that comes as a given when you’ve been making mobile phones for over 30 years.

Burn. The first ad Motorola put out was a little tongue and cheek, however this one is a sharp stick to the eye… a very funny sharp stick to the eye. We’ve got the full-sized image after the bounce.

DROID X ad takes a shot at iPhone 4 antenna woes

Apparently Motorola thinks the antenna issues that are plaguing the iPhone 4 are a laughing matter. Based upon this full page ad that was published in today’s New York Times, we’d have to agree.

“[...] And most importantly, it comes with a double antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like and use it just about anywhere to make crystal clear calls. You have a voice. And you deserve to be heard.

That’s gotta sting a bit, no? Hit the bounce to check out the ad in full-sized glory!

Thanks, A.! More →
