The story at Engadget. I got a bit of a laugh from it.
In the design world, many times the people making up the ads will use what they have available to pull from to get things like screen shots. This designer probably had an iPhone and needed to show something on screen so grabbed a screen shot of the Google Maps assuming it would look similar enough on the Droid X.
It's the same reason why many catalogs show Macs on computer desks instead of PCs - aside from the obvious aesthetic improvement, of course - or show OS X screens on PC laptops.
I always get a chuckle when I see that, especially since most people would pay no attention to the discrepancy.
But why not just take a shot of android's version of google maps. still don't think i would have noticed this on my own.,
Chances are the person making the ad has an iPhone. Hell they might of quickly pulled up google maps on the iPhone took a screen shot then put imported it into the ad.
They may not have had an Andoird phone available - at least not one with service. Or they didn't know how to take a screen shot with it.
My understanding is taking a screen shot on Android is a little harder and requires using the SDK to pull it off.
Maybe it's a little hint at the Verizon iPhone.
