AT&T's New iPhone 4 Ad Pokes Fun At Verizon
But that's not stopping AT&T from harping on a point that has been around forever, but could become a moot point just as soon as the iPhone 5 is launched. Verizon has already shown that they have the potential to enable simultaneous voice + data usage over their network, and upcoming Android phones may be able to take advantage. But for now, AT&T is using this against Verizon, for whatever it's worth.
We personally think the argument is somewhat overblown. It's not often that we have to use our voice minutes and our data at the same time, particularly when a Wi-Fi hotspot isn't nearby (or better yet, a PC). But it's the one thing that AT&T has left to hang onto, and they're hanging tough. The ad below is actually really compelling, but what officer worker a) doesn't have Wi-Fi and b) doesn't have a notebook or desktop? When's the last time you saw an office working do their job without an actual computer? Exactly. Nice try, AT&T, but we're still not buying this one.
