Samsung Taking Cheap Shots at iOS 6 Maps in Australia

Samsung got a little snarky today on George Street in Sydney trying to cash in on the latest Apple Maps debacle that sent several drivers into deadly situations after blindly following their iPhones into the wilderness of the Outback.

They didn’t come straight out and reference the incident on their advertisement, but they did display it right next to a beat-up looking four-wheel drive complete with a camping setup, making it pretty clear exactly who they were mocking.


Given that Samsung doesn’t actually spend anything on their own mapping system and instead just uses Google Maps, it’s a bit of a low blow.  But as they seem to continually be losing out to Apple in terms of media attention, maybe this is the best they can do to grab a little of the spotlight!
