iPad nothing more than an oversized Apple iPhone: Motorola

(Read article summary)


(Read caption) The iPad gets slammed in a new advert for the forthcoming Motorola tablet. But for now, the joke is on Motorola: Apple has sold 7.5 million iPad units, and counting.

About these ads

The Apple iPad is nothing more than a giant iPhone, according to a new spot for the forthcoming – and as of yet untitled – Motorola tablet. Let's see: Apple iPad as oversized Apple iPhone? Yep, we've heard that one at least a few times before. (Video from Motorola tablet advert below.)

But extra points to Motorola for the execution of the advertisement, which takes place in a museum, and follows the evolution of the tablet, from Egyptian hieroglyphic tablet ("good graphics, but weight makes for difficult portability") to the Rosetta Stone ("multi-lingual support but low-resolution screen").

Near the end of the advert, the camera pans over the Apple iPad. "It's like a giant iPhone.... but it's like a giant iPhone," reads the banner copy. (Motorola also takes its shots at the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which is described as having "Android OS, but Android OS for a phone.")
