Continuing the ad onslaught of Verizon and the Motorola DROID, we have three new commercials that actually show the DROID in action, well, sort of. It still maintains the 'droid' theme so it's really a robot arm using the DROID but hey, the original iDon't spot and the 'Stealth' ad were mere teasers for the DROID, these new spots actually showcase some functionality!

To no one's surprise, the ads focus on the strengths of the DROID: Android, the browser, Google Maps Navigation, and of course 'Does'. Mix in some bravado and robots and that's the overall feel of the commercials. Verizon isn't holding back any punches, even going as far as claiming they made a 'robot-phone' instead of a smartphone. Hit the jump to see the other DROID commercials!

What do you guys think?

New Verizon Motorola DROID Ads Pop Up


Rubber fingertips infused with human DNA! It's a new feature.

I love the comment in the 'Fighter' ad about (paraphrasing) "swapping semifunctional brat vanity with...true functionality" or something like that...while it crushes a bunch of silly glittery plastic 'fashion' covers.

Maybe the ads should bring in the 3 robotic laws? That would make us sleep more soundly...right? I mean, if the DROID had to obey the 3 laws, we'd be safe...right?

"How may I be of service?"

I think we're safe....

Three Laws of Robotics:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
