Verizon DROID X ad mistakenly features iPhone screen

Granted, the ad was about Google Maps, but that's still a serious mistake. For one thing, why does Verizon have iPhone images in their system anyway? Odds are that it was a result of the marketing department, or even a third party contractor, just searching for "Google Maps," and then copying the first image they found.
The ad has since been changed to an appropriate Android screen, but we imagine someone's still in the hot seat. The recent marketing battle between Apple and Motorola over Flash capability and Antennagate make this mistake all the more significant. Maybe this means Verizon is stocking up on iPhone images for their own launch?

Let them have it. Its a piece. i wouldnt even want to sell those pieces of junk. Its behind the tech curve, new UGLIER design, antenna problems, no interchangeable battery, no flash, face talk is only on wi-fi, and the screen cracks easy than ever! Oh... I almost forgot, its not open source and they control everything you see and do. This is why, when you go into a store, the reps try to sell you a captivate instead of an iphone.

What could be sweeter than being able to run iphone software on a Droid? It would be a bigger achievement for society than the abolition of slavery.
