iPhone Ad misleading: Real Time 3G Speed Much Longer

Posted in Tech by Neil Koster on November 26, 2008

jobs_iphoneThe ASA forced Apple to take off air it’s TV advert for the iPhone’s 3G speed capability . Which ad ? You know the one… where the magic finger taps the screen and almost instantly gets a response via 3G – “That iPhone it is sooo quick over 3G”. Well it turns out the ASA don’t think so! PC Pro have a comparison between the ad and what the actual download time is – see it here .

Apple’s version – 29 seconds    The real world version – 2 minutes, 21 seconds !

But Wait ! Steve doesn’t lie… does he?
