For the analyses of TV ads in the mobile phone category, ads ***** Apple iPhone ("Read"), Verizon BlackBerry Storm, ***** Nokia N96 (featur*****g Bruce Lee playing ping pong) were chosen. Brief description of each ***** ad is as follows:

The Apple ***** ad entitled "Read" features the different applications available in ***** iPhone 3G. It shows a close-up im*****ge ***** the ***** itself, with the user act*****g as "navigator" for the viewers to see ***** different ***** of the phone. Three (3) applications are featured, demonstrating how users can view blogs, pho*****s/pictures as complex ***** MRI images, and e-books where pages ***** be turned/"flipped" with a touch of ***** finger on the lower right corner of the screen.
