Motorola: The Droid X Doesn't Need a Jacket

by On July 29, 2010

Several days ago, Apple uploaded a video to YouTube showing the Droid X also suffers from a similar antennagate issue plaguing the iPhone 4. As you can imagine, Motorola was annoyed by this and decided to send another message to Apple. Previously, it ran an ad claiming you can hold the Droid X however you want. Motorola, on Facebook, revealed an ad slated to run in tomorrow’s newspaper publication, and its main point is simple: No Jacket Required for the Droid X. If you take a look at the image above, the headline of “No Jacket Required” is printed large and bold. At the bottom of the ad, the text reads:

At Motorola, we believe a customer shouldn’t have to dress up their phone for it to work properly. That’s why the DROID X comes with a dual antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like to make crystal clear calls without a bulky phone jacket. For us it’s just one of those things that comes as a given when you’ve been making mobile phones for over 30 years.

It’s nice to see Motorola respond to Apple’s antenngate mention of the Droid X in the form of a newspaper ad. What makes the situation even more ironic is hardly any Droid X user can replicate the Death Grip that can be so easily replicated on the iPhone 4. The ad is set to run days after Apple officially began the free bumper as a solution for Death Grip.
