iPhone Commercial – Family Travel

##ICON_NAME## Apple’s latest iPhone commercial, Family Travel, focuses on the iPhone’s ability in making “family travel” much more convenient.

“It’s unbelievable how much better family trips have gotten. Just last week I checked us in on the way to airport. Found the kids a snack near the gate. And even had their favorite movie ready to go. Then my husband turned to me and said, “Did we turn off the lights?” So we turned off the lights. And that’s why I don’t go anywhere without my iPhone.”

##ICON_NAME## AT&T has recently released a few more commercials. Two of them are the typical Luke Wilson commercials comparing AT&T to Verizon and third (released today) gives statistics on AT&T’s overall network… it’s a little boring but, it does have some interesting numbers.

The AT&T/Verizon Vengeance Continues – New Commercials

##ICON_NAME## It seems as though AT&T and Verizon are not losing steam on this whole commercial vengeance thing. Both AT&T and Verizon have recently released a new commercial. Verizon is targeting Apple this time around instead of AT&T. It could be in retaliation to the commercials Apple released last week targeting Verizon. The difference is, Apple does it so smoothly and Verizon is tactless.

Either way, I think both Verizon and AT&T’s commercials are slipping in quality. You can check them both out below.

Apple’s New Commericals Take Stab at Verzion Too!?

##ICON_NAME## AT&T is not the only company to release new commercials recently, Apple has also launched two new iPhone commercials. The new commercials “Did You See My Email?” and “What Time’s The Movie?” both seem take a subtle stab at Verizon. Unlike AT&T they do not specifically mention Verizon but, the two ads highlight the iPhone’s ability to talk on the phone while simultaneously using other capabilities of the iPhone including; viewing email, browsing the web, sending MMS and using App Store apps. Each commercial ends with the the tag line “Can your phone and your network do that?” Check out both ads below.

It seems the Apple has quietly entered into this little drama. I’d say it’s becoming quite the thing. Personally, I like the subtle approach… these commercials made me smile!

Despite Lawsuit, Verizon Continues Bashing AT&T & iPhone

AT&TDespite the recent lawsuit from AT&T, Verzion has released another round of commercials just in time for Christmas depicting the iPhone as just another misfit toy because of it’s lack of 3G coverage. I’ll admit that 3G coverage is limited, but I’d rather have the iPhone over the DROID or other Google Android Phones I’ve used. It’s just not an iPhone…
