COOh-Snap: Apple Competitors Still Trying to Catchup to Original 2007 iPhone 2G
During Apple's Q4 2009 financial results conference call today, when asked about competitive smartphone platforms and devices, Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook responded:
Frankly, they are really just trying to catch up with the 1st iPhone that was announced 2 years ago
While many will no doubt argue -- perhaps laugh outright -- at that, it's harder to laugh at Apple's results: 7.2 million more iPhones sold in the last 3 months, and half-a-billion more App Store downloads during the same period.
So was Cook just showing his swagger, setting himself up for a big takedown, or comfortably settling into a combined iPhone/iTunes/App Store offering his thinks will be tough to beat in the consumer market?
