Motorola Droid X ad punches iPhone 4 in the antenna

Motorola's full page New York Times ad takes a swift jab into the tenderest regions of iPhone 4 antenna issues.

most importantly, it comes with a double antenna design. The kind that allows you to hold the phone any way you like and use it just about anywhere to make crystal clear calls. You have a voice. And you deserve to be heard.

In our minds (and tweets) it played out like the original Karate Kid, with Droid X getting it's iPhone 4-bloodied nose seen to by the Moto Kai sensei who mercilessly whispers "sweep the leg" "go for the antenna".

Whether or not iPhone-san can pull out an iOS 4.0.1 crane-kick of a software fix and pull a similarly victory-from-the-jaws-of-defeat Hollywood ending remains to be seen...

"Send in a bumper case, yeaaaaaaah!"
