Not so fast iPhone!!!

Posted on: November 27, 2008

“So what’s so great about 3G? It’s what helps you get the news, really fast. Find your way, really fast. And download pretty much anything, really fast. The new iPhone 3G. The Internet, you guessed it, really fast.”

The above ad  showed a close-up of the phone being used to surf a news Web page, view the Google maps service, and download a file — and all the actions had waiting times of only a fraction of a second. In reality it takes a lot more  time so some Seventeen people complained to the ASA that the ad was misleading because it exaggerated the speed of the iPhone and you guessed it, it was banned. It’s obvious that the ASA isn’t taking the on-screen text disclaimer stating “network performance will vary by location”
