Ever since Steve and crew took the stage two weeks ago and basically called out every cell phone maker in the world, a whole bunch of poo flinging has been going on. First the BB CEO’s called out Apple, then Samsung and the rest followed suit. Then to rub salt in the wounds Apple put together a professionally made video knocking the Motorola Droid X. The video implied that the Droid X exhibited the same issue with its antenna as the iPhone 4. Well Motorola has responded with a big, “You should just smile and blow me!”
They took out a full page ad in the New York Times that basically states that their devices don’t need attachments to work properly. To quote their ad:
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.
Man this whole Antennagate thing is getting nasty! Apple should’ve just kept their mouth shut. If the numbers don’t lie like Steve said then why do they keep stoking the fire? Right? I mean there’s no real data to back up the claim that the 4 has a bad antenna, so why do they keep slinging poo? I love this stuff. Apple’s shiny armor gets dirtier and dirtier. Pretty soon they’ll change their name to AppleSoft. Check out the ad below. You’ve been called out…
