Verizon is angling the Palm Pre Plus mobile phone straight at the "mom market" in the States, which may well damage sales long term if it puts non-mom types off the phone.
Two adverts - one of which is shown above - states the device is "smart enough to keep up with mom", a real contrast from Verizon's Motorola Droid advertising in which said it "makes you feel like a four star general with natural charisma, twelve arms and the power of mind control".
Would you buy a phone angled at "moms" if you're a guy? Is Verizon sexist? Can different phones be better for different sexes? Are we reading too much into advertising messages? Have your say in the comments box below.
