    Sequins? The Droid is not girly like the iPhone, a new ad proclaims.

It seems like a fight that's dragging long into the late rounds, but we fear the bout between Droid and iPhone is just getting warmed up.

Thursday night prime-time TV saw the Droid camp premiere its latest spot, an anti-iPhone swipe (that never says iPhone, but the writing's on the wall) that is certain to appeal to the "He-man Women-Haters" set.

"Should a phone be pretty?" the spot asks at open. Well, yes – or, at least it should be well-designed. (You use it, after all, more often than your toothbrush or wallet.)

The rest is almost not even worth going into. Is the iPhone "clueless"? A "tiara-wearing digitally clueless beauty pageant queen"? We don't think so. And neither do the millions of purchasers (and 2 billion downloaded apps)  it's seen in just over two years of existence.
