Verizon pastes iPhone map screen on Droid X ad

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

It’s a little embarrassing to be Verizon today after they have inadvertently embarrassed Motorola themselves through a holiday promo. An ad to promote the Droid X’s voice-guided Google Maps is using a digitally inserted screen cap of the Maps app from the iPhone instead, which not only runs on a rival platform to Android but was written by Apple itself. Oops.

It might not be such a big deal, but this puts Apple on a device that Motorola has repeatedly used in successful anti-iPhone ads. Accidents do happen, but this one should have been caught.
