“Droid Does” Videos – Motorola Taking a Full Swing at the iPhone…

The mobile wars are on now, Motorola a fair contender in the mobile arena has launched its own advertising campaign dubbed as “"Droid Does”; against the iPhone and is in full swing.

 

The New Motorola Droid, it’s the first Android-based smartphone that will be sold exclusively by Verizon Wireless.  The punches Apple in face for its propriety and no open system and thus also making a good point of supporting open technologies such ad the Android Platform. I can’t wait for November…

So without further ado..

 

 

 

We also found a video of loyal iPhone users making a mockery of the Droid Does campaign. Those videos are below…

    How lame. The iPhone users’ mock add says “iDon’t buy brands who bash other brands” then it’s followed immediately by a clip from an Apple ad bashing PCs. Maybe with this competition from Verizon, Apple will wake up and address all the problems listed in Verizon’s ad. I think Apple intentionally made iPhones with those ‘flaws’ so they can ‘fix’ them later and sell more phones to people who have to upgrade their iPhones if they want the particular feature that has been ‘fixed’.

    • sam says:

      yes KBW you could be right, running a business is a tough ask, Apple might be looking for “Upgrades” as business model .
      And yes i am definite that apple will come up with something to show the droid, apple didnt leave the PC so why would it not try to humiliate droid.

      The only problem is also that Verizon has 87 million users in the US alone and if right targeting is done, verizon and motorola can have the biggest chunk in the smartphone market and thats what apple is scared about or i believe is supposed to be.
      Time will telll soon!!!

      You mean – like Microsoft has been doing the same thing with Windows?

      • sam says:

        Yup contextually but The Windows platform is now opening up a little bit since 2 years ago they open Sourced their .Net Platform and now their development modules (although) some libraries the only thing that they retain is the ownership of use that’s the only bug that critiques the open source community.

        and yes Microsoft does suck at its open source model…

  2. interesting blog I’m so glad I wandered here through my friend’s blog going to have to put this one on the list.

  3. Finally, an issue that I am passionate about. I have looked for information of this caliber for the last several hourse. Your site is greatly appreciated.

  4. Wow! You know plenty about this!!!

  5. Good blog. I got a lot of good information. I’ve been following this technology for awhile. It’s intriguing how it keeps changing, yet some of the core elements stay the same. Have you seen much change since Google made their latest acquisition in the arena?

  6. Maria Hrafn says:

    I was scanning something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your position on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read earlier. I am still reflecting over the various points of view, but I’m tipped heavily toward yours. And no matter, that’s what is so super about contemporary democracy and the marketplace of ideas on-line.

  7. Your blog is good! Generally when I visit blogs, I just come across shit, but this time I was really surprised when I got your blog containing wonderful information. Thanks mate and keep this effort up.

  8. I just came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Great blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  9. Hey, Is it just me or is some of the page cutting off ? I am running K-Melon for my browser.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case. Have you tried the ipad? you can get one free at FreshGiftCard.com

  11. I could do everything an iphone does today with my Palm Treo 300 in 2003. However, what Apple brought forth was making all tasks simpler so everyone, not just iSaavy people, could enjoy. Apple makes the complex simple.

  12. Great blog, i bookmark your site. What you wrote is great advice any way that you look at it.

  13. Love your blog, i will keep visiting this blog very often. I used google translator

  14. Droid Phone says:

  17. Jack Rizza says:

  18. Hey I came across your blog by mistake on msn while looking for something really unrelated but I am very pleased that I did, You have just snagged yourself another subscriber. :)

  19. Very interesting way to market on facebook. I also found a way to automate a couple very powerful methods of getting users. You can grab ID by groups or pages or wall posts with this software. Then once you have them you can do a friend blast to your profile or sudo profile. This by passes the captcha codes too. There is also a cool chat program that you can setup scripts and keyword to work with. This program, when I use it I can see a spike in my site traffic. It is amazing…

  20. This is how a review should be done. Thanks for the post, and be sure to post some more reviews when you have time. What are you going to reviewnext?

  26. Eun Clavin says:

    Apple sues smartphone manufacturer HTC for patent infringement. Court filings includes a list of popular HTC Android and Windows Mobile phones targeted in the concurrent ITC Complaint to block importation of those devices into the US. The listed patents are all seemingly software patents, a controversial area of patent law.

  27. I couldn’t resist commenting. :)

  28. Lawn Care says:

    I will use your advice from now on. Jaap

  29. tech gadgets says:

    This post is good, whenever I just visit blogs I comes across some shitty articles written for search engines and irritate users but this article is quite good. It is simple, good and straightforward.

  30. It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place

  31. Kandi Rizzi says:

    Thanks for the great Android info! I always search for sites like yours. Im a massive fan of tech type toys and always try to keep up on the newest and coolest technology. You added a new perspective that I hadnt thought about before so it opened up my mind a bit. I will start following your site and come back on a regular basis. Big Android fan here.

  32. I am quite interesting in this topic hope you will elaborate more on it in future posts

  33. Free iPhone says:

    Easily, the post is really the best on this laudable topic. I concur with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your forthcoming updates. Just saying cheers will not just be sufficient, for the fantastic clarity in your writing. I will right away grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates. Delightful work and much success in your business enterprise!

  34. excellent good, this post justifies absolutely nothing hahaha merely kidding 😛 nice write-up

  35. Thanks for this. I will try it on my on.

  36. Althea Maule says:

    After reading Rather good ideas on your Blog. I adore. thanks you for providing this good information

  37. rugs says:

    I have got one idea for your web site. It seems like right now there are a handful of cascading stylesheet troubles when opening a number of webpages within google chrome and opera. It is operating okay in internet explorer. Possibly you can double check this.

  38. Fantastic Stuff, do you have a facebook profile?

  39. chat says:

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  40. This is very interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your great post. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks!
