Verizon yesterday released a new television commercial advertising the iPad 2 (via 9to5Mac).


The ad, which utilizes a portion of Bow Wow Wow's "I Want Candy" as the soundtrack, unsurprisingly touts the 3G capabilities of the iPad 2 models offered for Verizon's network.

It's faster, thinner, and lighter, and with the power of Verizon, you can stay connected almost anywhere. Let's say you want to download a bestseller at the beach...done. Or, if you want to stay connected when you're miles away from Wi-Fi...no problem. You can even tweet when you're nowhere near your followers. And you can post pictures too. So, what do you think?

I'll take it.

Apple traditionally handles the majority of advertising for its iOS devices, sometimes with carrier branding appearing at the end of a commercial, but carriers have on occasion released their own ads promoting the devices alongside their networks.

At least they showed the device and what you might do with it. Usually those stupid droid commercials have lightning bolts, people in lab coats or some girl dressed in leather swinging a sword.

"Those are the 3 worst situations to use an iPad. Verizon is asking for a class action lawsuit. Apple's ad would have you buying a book at night, taking pictures in the day and posting status indoors."

So true!

Well the ad is trying to emphasize using the verizon network. So they use three outside, far from wifi, scenarios. A beach, a park, and a camping trip. I think it's a fine ad. Not as good as Apple's, but fine.

Agree. The thing that bothers me every time I see it is in the galaxy tab commercial.

A guy uses a 10" tablet to record video of running horses while riding in a jeep. Who would do that? Was the tablet really the ONLY video camera he had with him?

Verizon really needs to leave the commercial making to Apple.

Better than verizons last commercial where the chick raddled off the processor to some customer.

this one.

But I like how the iPad one says “sequences shortened” where the other tablet had all its “screens simulated”. :D
