Verizon Does ANYTHING to Not Use Google on Android LOL

** This story about an advertising faux pas should be taken in jest**

As you know has been relentless in it’s quest to send out the message that BING on a Google Android OS is just, well WRONG.  We are pretty confident that we have now figured out that Verizon Wireless will use Microsoft’s Bing search engine on all Android phones that are not branded “DROID”.  Today we see they take it one step further in an advertisement.  In the ad above Verizon’s ad agency has used a screen shot of iPhone’s turn by turn navigation rather than using Google Maps. The ad has since been revised and we are pretty confident someone on Madison ave is in a bit of hot water.

The corrected ad is below:
