www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBk_iHJU4tM Verizon has launched a new ad featuring Apple’s popular iPhone which mocks the network coverage offered by rivals AT&T and Sprint. In the 30-second clip, a group abandons a sinking ship, escaping with just their lives and their iPhones. Only one of the party gets enough signal to make a call, and that’s the one who’s on Verizon — a carrier which claims to offer “the best wireless service in the world for your iPhone.” While AT&T was the exclusive carrier for the iPhone when the device launched back in 2007, the company lost that privilege in February of this year when Apple launched a CDMA iPhone 4 for Verizon. With the release of the iPhone 4S, Sprint also joined the party to offer Americans three carrier choices for the device for the first time ever. [via 9to5Mac]
