Verizon Photoshop is Painfully Bad, DROID X Now Runs iOS?

We understand that not all marketing people obsess over things like Android and our general dislike of anything i*hone, but the photoshopping of a Droid X with an iOS Google Maps screen on it is about the worst thing you could do.  This might seem like a minor detail to some, but the war between these two mobile operating systems is pretty well known and a gaffe like this is…well, you can probably think of a couple of words I might use.  

And as you can see below, they’ve already fixed the image…

  • Chris Nimon

    Hmmm. I only see 2 possibilities. 1 the photoshopper is a fanboy or, 2 this person is a complete moron to think we Hemdroids (the pain in *phones ass:) wouldn't notice and his employment should be “up for review” lol

    • TheDrizzle

      Very nice!

    • OtisJay

    • feztheforeigner

    You're taking it out of context.

    Vzw is just showing how flexible android is. Or this is a sign vzw is getting the iPhone.

      No, it's a sign somebody f*cked up.

  • Nghtmare

    No ones looking at the phone.

    • JohnPA2006

      She's too bundled up to not be looking at the phone.
      But she sure is perty !!!

  • Un3k1109

    Haha just flashed apex rom with nex theme onto droid x…blow me steve jobs…

  • Droid

    I read the headline and thought you were talking about the girl. Her neck is too long and on the right you can tell the green sweater is just laid over the gray sleeve.

    • BadAndy

      Your an idiot!!!! her neck isnt too long (women unlike men have long necks) she is wearing the sweater, she just had the cut out done poorly.

  • FortitudineVincimus

    wait, isn't this exact same story already over on the “other” site???

    oh man, I am so confused.

      yea but it still involves a DROID X so it belongs on this site too.

  • Timoh

    At least the girl is nice to look at.

    Wow this is pretty interesting, i suppose the biggest question this brings to mind is….

    Will this run on the original droid?

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

      i dont think it brings that question. i think it brings the question “what the hell was someone thinking?!!!”

      • g00ber

        there boss sucks and this is a great way to get back at him.

      • http://twitter.com/davidjr621_ David Wagner

        the real question is… Were they too lazy to open the Droid X google maps app that they had to photoshop the iOS google maps on there?

    • Ajsochowski

      Dude read the whole article before posting.

      • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeffrey Bernard

  • Erie215

    I wish I would put ios on my droid x..i would shoot myself afterward

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

  • Bob
