Well, we are still two weeks away from the launch of the next big Android handset – the Droid X. And the ads are beginning to reach the mainstreamers. The latest is a full-page ad on The New York Times announcing the July 15 launch day.
Hidden under the glitz and images are those tiny few words taking a dig at Apple’s iPhone 4 antenna signal reception issue. The ad reads,
“And most importantly, it comes with a double antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like and use it just about anywhere to make crystal clear calls. You have a voice. And you deserve to be heard.“
We are not sure how the double-antenna design on Droid X works. Apple’s iPhone 4 comes with two separate antenna bands that caters to Bluetooth/Wi-Fi and voice calls respectively. We are unsure if Motorola Droid X contains two antenna that perform the same functionality, though we think that is the case.
Motorola has had some fantastic releases in the past few months. We will wait and see how this launch goes. Meanwhile, check out the latest ad below.
