HTC Incredible Commercials Continue Dark Style of Previous Ads


Verizon Wireless has chosen to keep the same “dark” style when advertising the HTC Incredible as they did with the original Droid.

In the past Verizon has taken a fairly pointed stance against not only Apple’s iPhone, but AT&T’s alleged spotty 3G coverage. Rather than the light and “one-size-fits-all” approach that the iPhone ads take, Verizon’s campaigns are dark and brooding. They paint the picture that you’re not one of the crowd, you’re not the kind of person to get tied in to a fluffy interface, you know what you want out of a phone, and Verizon’s offerings match you better than Apple’s. Ironically, this reminds me of Apple’s infamous 1984 commercial which prompts customers to “break free” from the IBM/Microsoft mold, and go with Apple for your desktop computer.

Perhaps someone will come up with a “Hi, I’m an iPhone” “and I’m an Android” ad campaign…

Since you were wondering, the HTC Incredible is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, has a beautiful 3.7″ AMOLED Display, runs Android 2.1 (Eclair) with the HTC Sense UI, 1300mAh battery, 8MP camera with dual LED flash, and 512MB of RAM.
