AT&T's cellphone service is a jokeDecember 21, 2009: 6:09 AM ET
Laughter and applause greet a dig at the iPhone on Saturday Night Live
You know you've got a public relations problem when you're a punchline on SNL's Weekend Update.
"It was reported this week that Google would soon launch its own cellphone as a challenge to the iPhone. Also a challenge to the iPhone? Making phone calls."
The audience -- presumably the usual mix of tourists and enough reception-challenged New Yorkers to appreciate the humor -- laughed and applauded.
Video clip below the fold.
UPDATE: The clip has been removed from YouTube by NBC Universal. But you can watch the whole episode below or on hulu.com. The joke begins at 37:20.
