“The Droid is not a princess.”

Now don’t get me wrong, we’ve complained plenty about how some companies like to market their tech products to women by feminizing the shit out of them. And oh, how I do hate princess culture. But really, dude?

Girl things are dainty and suck! Boy stuff is tough and rocks! I mean, come on – the last line in the ad is, “A phone that trades ‘hairdo’ for ‘can do.'”

h/t to Thanassi.

Should a phone be pretty? Should it be a tiara-wearing, digitally clueless beauty pageant queen?
Or should it be fast? Racehorse duct-taped to a scud fast?
We say the latter. So we built the phone that does. Does rip through the web like a circular saw on a ripe banana.
Is it a precious porcelain figurine of a phone? In truth? No. It’s not a princess; it’s a robot.
A phone that trades “hairdo” for “can do.”
