Motorola takes a shot at Apple’s iOS 6 Maps, sparks hashtag mayhem

The introduction of Apple’s very own Maps service has been met with some major criticism, most notably for its inaccurate directions and melted roadways. Motorola has taken this opportunity to engage in a little competitive marketing, touting its new Droid RAZR M as the superior smartphone. Yesterday, the company sent out a tweet comparing Google Maps to Apple’s offering.

There’s no question that Motorola’s message is more of an attempt to advertise its new Droid RAZR M handset than it is to poke fun at Apple’s less than stellar Maps application on iOS 6. However, the newly introduced #iLost hashtag is sure to catch on, seeing as it has already made its way to Twitter’s trending topics list–thanks to several additional tweets from Motorola. Either way, let’s just hope Google releases a third party Maps application for our frenemy iPhone users in the near future.
