Verizon drops the moms, advertises webOS as the awesomeness that it is

Verizon Palm Pre Plus TV ad

Forget moms, let’s talk software! With Valentine’s Day in the past, Verizon has now turned their attention and considerable marketing muscle to advertising the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus they way they’re meant to be advertised: as feature-packed smartphones. In 30 seconds time Big Red manages to cover more than Palm managed in their entire series of launch commercials.

Oh, and they’re showing of Buy One, Get One Free too. If there was any need of clarification, this ad should clear things up for both staff and customers: the Pixi Plus is available as a BOGO offer when you buy a Pre Plus or a Pixi Plus, not just the latter. Verizon’s BOGO promotions have proven a boon for both the BlackBerry Curve and the HTC Droid Eris, hopefully we’ll be able to say the same for the Pixi Plus.

Thanks to Matt and Adam for the tips!
