    Apparently the folks at Motorola didn't take too kindly to Apple's claims of Droid X antenna problems. So, as any corporate entity does best, Motorola takes a direct shot at Apple through its latest Droid X ad (pictured above). As iPhone users continue to drop calls and file free Bumper claims, all we can do as Droid users is to sit back and laugh. I wonder if Droid X's new tagline, "No Jacket Required," will stick. And if the clever slogan wasn't enough, Motorola went further:

    Thoughts?

    The 30 years statement is funny but it points out an interesting fact that's quite obvious to the non fanboys. Motorola has been making phones for over 30 years and are still very much in the upper echelon if not the top spot; Apple on the other hand entered the mobile market just over three years ago yet it has blown nearly everything else including many Motorola products out of the water.

    Long story short is that it's always good sport to burn one's adversary when they are at a disadvantage to keep them on their toes but you must still keep in mind that they are your adversary because they are equally capable of victory.

    The way they point to the sides is also a subtle message that holding the phone is OK.

    Also, I thought manufacturability was relevant in a law suit, so I wonder if this is hurting Apple's lawsuits at all....

    I always enjoy a well executed marketing piece.

    Subtle, but at the same time they remain above directly attacking Apple's BS "deathgrip" video.

    And the LTE-capable monsters coming in Q4/Q1 are going to reduce the IPhone fanboys to claiming superiority on the basis of android not having a guitar hero app.
