Motorola Droid X Ad Tears Into iPhone 4 Signal Issues in New York Times Ad

Verizon is holding no punches with their Droid X campaign, which again has taken to attacking the phone's main competitor and the company's biggest rival in much the same way the original Motorola Droid directly challenged AT&T and the iPhone's "There's an app for that" slogan with "Droid Does." The latest print ad for the X showed up as a full page in today's New York Times, going straight for the juggular and attacking perhaps the only weakness the mainstream media has been willing to admit with the iPhone 4 since the device's launch: the grim-sounding Grip of Death.

For anyone unfamiliar, no, holding your iPhone 4 the wrong way won't kill you, but it will kill your signal. Seems like a pretty big oversight on Apple's part, but I won't throw stones. Verizon is already taking care of that. The ad — which you can view below — included this friendly little jab tacked on to the closing print:

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.

I guess the truth hurts sometimes, but it's all part of "friendly" competition. Then again, it would seem that those wanting the iPhone really just don't care about how features stack up anyway.
