New DROID Commercial Features Lookout and DROID 2

The Droid AppSphere returns to the small screen, this time featuring a Droid 2 and Lookout Security.  The AppSphere was made famous during the original Droid campaign as a stylish way for Verizon to feature some of the top Android apps available on the market.  

Read into this however you want, but the commercial specifically mentions the Droid X and 2 at the end, but for whatever reason forgets about the Incredible.  Now, I know the DI has been in the wild for quite some time, but it can still compete with the best of them and still has a long life ahead of it.  Check out the spot below…

The Droid campaign is still one of the greatest of all time in my opinion.  Nice to see it returning to its AppSphere roots.

Cheers zacqua10!

    The Droid AppSphere commercials really apply to all Droid branded phones!

    Only Motorola commercials feature the App Sphere and they wouldn't advertise two different manufactures in the same commercial. The incredible has its own commercials. The MotoDroid commercials are kinda better than the HTCDroid commercials now that i think of it.

    ive had it since day one on my DX. Its great.

  • Smokeeater218

    I have Norton security beta on my X because it has call blocking and Lookout does not

    does anyone else notice that its a DX that it says it's protecting, not a D2?

    • http://knowledgeaboutphones.blogspot.com/ Wes Campbell

      ahh… watched it… now i got it…

  • db17k

    i don't think the Droid Incredible was mentioned because this commercial was made by Motorola. My sources?, look at all the other Motorola Droid commercials, they all have a similar style and theme to them.

  • Rodys7

    ITS A MOTOROLA &VERIZON FUNDED CAMPAIGN

    ..HENCE THE LACK OF DI BEING MENTIONED…

  • Jeremy

    I'm going to try this app out but the commercial makes it seem like if you and your friend have this app then either off you can be an a$$hole one day and randomly turn the others alarm on.

  • Coaster36

    They dont mention the incredible because motorola paid more then HTC for the commercial. Its simple. “money talks”

    i want one of those robots

  • Ilhe1s

    YAY another commercial with my baby on it! love my droid 2!

    The Incredible is a POS like almost every HTC phone. There's a reason Verizon has ignored it forever.

    • qmartman711

      The Droid Eris was certainly a POS…but HTC sense definitely brought taste and color to bone stock android. Of course, we, techies, know how to root our phones, theme, and whatnot, but an average joe/jane doesn't. HTC definitely upped the game with their sense phones. The EVO and Inc are both great phones. Now HTCSense.com is coming to further their support of their products. I would argue HTC does a great job..just look at their Q3 earnings this year.

      True but they at least put out 2 commercials with a similar style and same narrator for the DInc. Its not a bad phone, few phones feel as solid as Morotola's. My X feels tight :) The Inc feels plasticy even if its got a monster under the hood. And I like sense kinda. I would try Sense on my X if I could xD

    • WhereIsTony

      IMO the Incredible better than the X out of the box. but with a lot of customization, the X is a better phone.

      • Rain_king46

        I agree with this comment 100%

      • Djspikezz

        The HTC Incredible is for girls. Droix X is for men. Unless you have small tiny girl hands, DROID X all the way. :)

        • WhereIsTony

          Three things

          1. I am glad I do not tie my feelings of masculinity into my cell phone. It would force me to wonder if I should make ridiculous comments followed by cute little smiley faces. ;-)

          2. You seem to think your preferences speak for more than whats best for you. You might be better off with an iphone. They also believe that there is one phone that fits what is cool and that individual design preferences are a bad thing. better yet get an Ipad, since your self worth is tied to your screen size.

          3. Grow up.

            Ooooo that’s definitely a “no he di’nt” moment. But will the troll take it? If I was the troll i’d be mad I’m just saying..

          Also it makes this post seem weird. Let me guess you had just gotten out of the pool?

        • http://www.facebook.com/arthurarthur Arthur Bailey

          You're talking about masculinity… on a cell phone website. I'll just leave it at that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      HTC puts too much into making the phones look prettywhile performance (htc sense) suck nuts. motoblur NEVER force closes on me. every time i see my friend hes like “OMG why does stupid HTC sense keep force closing??? OMG im bout to get another droid like the x or droid 2!” i just laugh at him! and you'd think since htc puts soooo much into making them look pretty the phones would have solid build quality. i can actually pull the side of his incredible apart. it even feels cheap in my hand. dont even get me started with the eris.

      • droid_fanatic

        well motoblurshit sucks it way slower then sense the lag on blur is the exact reason i had to switch to the incredible. what is the point of that good of a processor if you cant tell its in there in the first place. when motorola steps up their game with blur or rids there devices of it completely the htc is by far the smoother device. but i do agree with you onbuild quality, motorola is far surperior. but we all have to pick what is more important for us and motorblurs performance coming from an incredible to the X was inferior so i had to go back to my incredible.

    • http://twitter.com/azurikai Austin Witherow

      personally i'd love a HTC phone because of Sense, and I'm pretty sure the reason it was ignored was because of the AMOLED screen shortage that left them greatly out of stock for periods of time, unless I'm wrong.

  • Flip5621

    They don't say anything about the incredible because it is made by HTC not Motorola

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      right! they just put the old incredible commercial back on.

  • El El Kool J

    how many of you actually have lookout install on your phone?

    • JP

      I’ve had it on my phone for a few months now. The backup and find features are really useful. Not that worried about the virus scan, but it’s nice to have. Runs quietly in the background, does its job, and doesn’t slow down the phone or take up too much memory or CPU cycles.

    • briderx

      I didn't install it, because I was scared that I'd be charged the Asurion fee..

      • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

        huh?

      • Rain_king46

        Lookout has nothing to do with Asurion. They have their own app…

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      i do! its awesome, useful and very helpful.

    • PuzzleShot

      I have it installed on my droid x

    • The350zWolf

      I just installed it and it works great, although I wonder how they manage to offer this service for free… I guess that as a startup they are hoping to get good enough so that some major company offers them a buyout…

    • evltwn

      I have been using Lookout on my Droid since last XMAS. The commerical is a little mis-leading though, when using the Scream feature to locate the phone, you have to turn off the phone to get the screaming to stop. Unless they have changed this for the Droid X and Droid 2.

  • Michael_NM

    “Can a smartphone be it's own guardian angel?” Classic!

    Now, if we could just get that appshere on our phones…

    • Lakerzz

      I know, right…that would be awesomely classic.

  • Lunchboxishere87

    Am I the only noticing that on the lookout page it shows a Droid X as the device but the phone they are accessing it on is a Droid 2???

    Definitely weird….

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      i seen that when i saw the commercial last night. i also thought it was weird. lol they are trying to promote two phones at once!

    • http://twitter.com/VideoGameMatt Matt

      Actually if you listen closely you'll notice that they are using the D2 to find the X cause they do the locate phone and then sound the alarm and if you listen the X starts sounding an alarm until the metal arm comes over and turns it off.

  • Tkampka

    its like the matrix!!
