As well as a Nokia N900 advert, this could also be a Nokia N97/N97 mini advert based on how the Motorola Droid is supposed to be “better” than the iPhone.
- Real Keyboard
- Running Simultaneous apps (N900 multitasks like no other)
- 5MP camera
- Flash for night photos
- Removable battery
- Runs widgets on homescreen
- Allows open development
Heck, this could have been about a lot of phones. (I’m aware of the differences between the Moto Droid and N900 – but based on the iDon’t video, Verizon’s ad could be talking about either)
As much as comparisons will be made highlighting the improved hardware advantages of phone X over the iPhone, none of it will ever actually matter until someone makes a phone that’s much more usable/user friendly than the iPhone itself. Nokia are slowly getting there with the N900 and Maemo.
[Though, I guess from a non-tech-geek perspective, it’s good to point out the obvious to set your product apart and make it seem different, when really it isn’t. A lot of what iPhone did from the beginning was self hype/great marketing, which kudos to Apple, it managed to live up to.]
