This is the droid you were looking for

While the iPhone has been a very popular phone with consumers, one of the most criticized aspects of the phone has been its network which is supported by AT&T. According to recent reports, the 30% iPhone dropped call rate in NYC is considered "normal".

Verizon's most recent attack on the iPhone came in the form of "There's a map for that" ads which poked fun at AT&T's 3G coverage in the United States. While those ads -- which were a humorous take on AT&T's "There's an app for that" commercials -- threw a few jabs at the Apple/AT&T dynasty, Verizon's newest ad campaign is full of powerful combinations.

In a new commercial which aired tonight according to Engadget, Verizon once again goes with similar iPhone themes (music and font in this case) to attack all of the things that the AT&T/iPhone can't do or doesn't physically have. Some of the gems in the commercial include "iDon't have a real keyboard", "iDon't run simultaneous apps", "iDon't allow open development", and "iDon't have interchangeable batteries".

The commercial then shifts gears and goes all "mech" on the viewer to advertise the upcoming Motorola Droid which will use Google's Android 2.0 operating system. While the Motorola Droid isn't shown in the commercial, Verizon points users to a teaser site at droiddoes.com.

Verizon's hard stance against the iPhone sheds quite a bit of doubt on Apple's iPhone coming to its next generation LTE network (as many Verizon customers and burned AT&T customers have pined for); however, stranger things have happened.

It remains to be seen if the Motorola Droid will have what it takes to dethrone Apple's iPhone in the hearts and minds of American consumers and push more customers to Verizon's network. If the Droid isn't enough, it'll have plenty of help from the Blackberry Storm2 and the Verizon Palm Pre.
