New Verizon ad attacks iPhone weak spot: AT&T


The Apple iPhone is an exceptional smartphone. It started it all. And dominates for good reason: it’s so easy and fun to use. But, everyone knows the AT&T network is its Achilles heel. And Verizon is attacking it aggressively. The latest 30-second spot once again uses the infamously sparse (but legally accurate?) AT&T 3G coverage map to put a damper on the party.

Curious, though, if it’s based in the Island of Misfits, that would make every other non-iPhone device a misfit, no? Probably true enough.
