Apple released two new iPhone ads on TV on Monday. While the ads tout its features, one can't help but think it's a slight jab at phones on other networks, particularly Verizon.
BusinessWeek stated that the ads are intended to show off the iPhone's ability to hold a simultaneous voice and data connection at the same time, a feature which is not known to be able to be done on phones on other networks.
One of the ads covers a set of work-related scenarios one might go through - such as checking out an email from a client while still talking to them. Or social scenarios - like sending your friends directions to the movie theater while still conversing.
This also comes in during the current rumble between Verizon Wireless and Apple's partner AT&T, who recently had drawn up a lawsuit against Verizon's "There's A Map for That" ads. In these, Apple does its part as a good tag team partner to AT&T, while showing a great feature of the iPhone at the same time.
