Analyses of advertisements for Apple iPhone, Blackberry and Nokia

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

The Apple iPhone ad entitled "Read" features the different applications available in ***** iPhone 3G. It shows a close-up image ***** the iPhone itself, with the user acting as "navigator" for the viewers to see the different applications of the phone. Three (3) ***** are featured, demonstrating how users can view blogs, pho*****s/pictures as complex ***** MRI **********, and e-books where pages ***** be turned/"flipped" with a touch of ***** finger on the lower right corner of the screen. A voice-over (VO) informs the viewers of each applicati***** throughout the commercial, using repetitively the phrase, "*****re's an app for that." The ad closes ***** the tagline, "There's an ***** for just about everything. Only on the iPhone," after which logos for the ***** iPhone 3G ********** AT&T were shown.

Lastly, the ***** N96 ad features Bruce ***** using a ch*****in weapon as his "paddle" in a p*****g pong game. Known for his prowess in ***** martial arts, the video captures Bruce Lee playing singles a la martial arts style with, presumably, a Chinese player. The video is shot in black ***** white, and the 60-seconder ad is divided ********** two matches: the first part showing Lee playing singles, and the second part ***** him playing doubles, still with h***** c*****ain weapon. Lee defeats both players, ***** the ad closes with a shot of ***** Nokia N96 with a ***** of Lee's famous "hiyaaaah!" ***** arts call sound. A rotated view of N96 is shown, showing the image and name of Lee engraved at the back of the *****, ***** text written in Chinese characters. ***** ad closes by ***** the URL where viewers can get more information about N96:
