It looks like Verizon is not above photoshopping pictures to make their point... In fact, most large companies employ this tactic daily. However, it's not this often that such a big error gets overlooked. In a holiday ad Verizon has a Droid X phone that shows a clear version of iOS maps instead of Google Maps.

We'll chalk this one up to a marketing department snafu that just didn't get noticed but I'm sure some conspiracy theorists among us will have different ideas ;)

And take a look at the the grammar:
"What's an app and why are there so smartphone?"

my guess is the copy in the upper right continues past where the image is cropped... since no two lines when read back to back make sense.

Saw this on twitter earlier. Been laughing about it all day.
My brother, the iphone fanatic, of course stumbled across it as well and had to get on me about it. As if I'm responsible lol.

Actually, there's a more likely chance that a designer got an epic WIN sneaking that one in. I say good work sowing digital anarchy!
