    Verizon has upped the ante in its battle versus Apple and AT&T, airing a series of ads which make claims of AT&T's lack of 3G coverage and iPhone shortcomings.

    In a 30 second advertisement which first aired Saturday during the ALCS baseball game, Verizon unveiled a new ad targeting the iPhone. The ad, which greatly resembles Apple's stylized spots, listed several of the iPhone's proposed weaknesses when compared to Verizon's new Droid smartphone with the tagline "iDon't."

    No real details about the Droid phone were presented in the spot, instead viewers were directed to a Web site where e-mail addresses could be submitted for more information.

    Yeah.

    Watching these commercials makes me think Verizon isn't going to get the iPhone....
    I wonder who else will get it?

    If that is the case Verizon made a big mistake. This droid better/wanna be the iPhone killer.

    No matter how well the Droid does, the iPhone will always be the iPhone.

    It'll maintain a superior status in the smartphone category.
    Maybe not first, but it is highly regarded as a great device.
    The iPhone can never be beaten.

    P.S. I'm not fighting with you, I'm just adding onto what you're saying.
