With all of the hype surrounding the iPhone it’s understandable that other companies would get tired of fielding questions about what they think of it. But one thing to remember is always keep your cool about competitors when talking to the press. At the OPA Forum for the Future conference Simon Thompson, Motorola’s European marketing director had this to say regarding the iPhone:
â€œWe thought it looked very pretty and white. iPhone, iPhone, iPhone! Iâ€™m just bored of this darned question. Look, there will be a billion phones sold next year – on a good year, there will be 10 million iPhones.â€
Also, in addition to keeping your cool, you might want to keep a few of the simple facts straight. Like color for example. I may be a little colorblind, but last time I checked, the iPhone was black.
