Speaking of the ongoing ad-war between AT&T and Verizon, according to CNET:

AT&T Demands Verizon Stop Airing "Misfit Toys", Other Attack Ads

Ho-ho-hold on a minute, Verizon -- AT&T's not finding much to laugh about in those new anti-AT&T iPhone "map for that" commercials that show a teensy, tiny blue GSM/HSPA 3G footprint compared the ginormous country painted CDMA/EVDO red.

Verizon Attacks iPhone and AT&T... with Toys, Elves, and Xmas Blues?!

We have to admit, Verizon's latest, Xmas-themed iPhone and AT&T attack ads bring the funny. Continuing the savvy "map for that" (rather than silly DroidDoes), the first shows the land of misfit toys where an iPhone-looking device is condemned for its poor AT&T 3G coverage.

After the break, we have elves giving Verizon devices, with robust 3G coverage, to nice children and an iPhone with poor AT&T coverage to the naughty. And, lastly, a father has a blue Xmas when his iPhone can't reach his family (though a Verizon present awaits him when he finally gets home).

Attacking the iPhone on it's major front-facing weakness, much-hyped consumer dissatisfaction with AT&T's network is the kind of smart that is -- and, given Verizon's recent comments, may even be an attempt to show Apple the iPhone would be better off on a better network?

Of course, AT&T likely isn't laughing, given they're already suing Vewill likely take further issue with claims of 5x more 3G coverage, but they're already suing, right?

Verizon Roshambos AT&T 3G Coverage with "There's a Map for That!"

Verizon gave AT&T a Cartman-esque Roshambo last night with their new, mockingly phrased "there's a map for that" TV commercial, an obvious take off of Apple's "there's an app for that" at the expense of AT&T's smaller 3G coverage footprint.
