Are The Latest iPhone Ads Are Bogus?

As I mentioned yesterday, there are two new iPhone ads that center around talking on the phone while running apps, checking e-mail, or surfing the net. That sounds great right?

Except that it may not be true.

The problem lies in the fact that you need 3G coverage to do all of that. Many iPhone customers on the AT&T network who have 3G capable iPhones are often running on the slower EDGE network rather than their 3G network and EDGE isn’t capable of simultaneous voice and data access. If by some miracle they get 3G on their iPhone, the chances of it working are suspect at best. So the ads may not be true and I’m just waiting for someone to file the lawsuit against Apple over these ads. After all, lawsuits in the mobile phone industry seems to be the in thing at the moment.
