    Apple Launching New iPhone Ads Tonight

    Advertisement



    We all knew it would only be a matter of time before Apple or AT&T would come up with a method to defend themselves from Verizons popular TV Ad's promoting their great 3G coverage.

    Apple is launching two new iPhone ads on TV tonight. The ads are intended to tout the iPhone’s ability to hold a simultaneous voice and data connection at the same time.
    One ad shows a set of work-related scenarios — looking at an email from the boss while you’re still talking to him — and a social scenario as well — sending your friend directions to the movie theater while you’re still talking.
    The ads can’t help but be viewed against the backdrop of the fight between Verizon Wireless and Apple’s partner AT&T, the one that’s spawned a lawsuit for Verizon’s “There’s A Map For That” TV spots. Here we see Apple doing its part as both a good AT&T partner, and touting a great feature of the iPhone all at once.

    Jump over to BusinessWeek to watch the two new TV Ads (Video).

    So just a question....For the phone call and data at the same time you have to have 3g coverage? Is that correct? Cause I can't use data while on the phone....or is it just a 3gs thing?

    Apple should not have to step up to the plate for AT&T. It just makes AT&T look even worse.

    The commercials are good tho. They sure do make their point.

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I saw this commercial. (Att promoting simultaneous capability in response to VZ's recent kick below the belt... IMO) I have ATT, and the service just plain and simple sucks. What good is having this capability if the 3G coverage is so sparse? And even then, when I actually happen to be in a 3G coverage area, I still have dropped calls, echoing on the line and interference. And come on, let's face it, what good is it to promote a feature when u don't have the technology to support it. Apple is trying to help ATT save face... And so far, in my opinion, the only thing showing face here is the ugly truth... ATT's service sucks.
