LG recently uploaded on its YouTube channel a teaser about its upcoming Optimus Pad, another Android-powered tablet about to be released.
Like every other teasers, the video is all about how great the tablet is, but interestingly enough, and if you pay attention, you will notice that the Street Fighter like game featured in the video is not as harmless as it may initially seem: one of the fighters, named “A pad,” is actually modeled after Steve Jobs. Of course, in the video, Steve Jobs gets his butt kicked by the other character, and does not even retaliate.
Call us fanboys, but given that Steve Jobs is currently on medical leave, LG’s video is really tasteless in our opinion. Sure, poking at the competition is fun, and brands do it all the time, but there is a time and place for that, and it is certainly not right now.
Ironically, LG is the main supplier of displays for iPads and iPhones, and Apple is one of its largest customers…
