Microsoft's Marketing Genius....


Given Microsoft's magnificent success with the iPod-killing Zune, snatching up 2.5% of MP3 player sales as compared to Apple's mere 72.3%, perhaps I underestimate CEO Steve Ballmer:
There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.
Personally, I expect the iPhone to be a huge seller.

I was highly skeptical of the iPhone... until I saw it. And that was before I heard some very favorable commentary on it from non-technically oriented people.

I also suspect that by the time it hits the market, the iPhone will be even more fully featured than it was at the time of its introduction. I expect that, as with the iPod, there will ultimately be a family of iPhones which compete with (and outshine) competing products at all comparable price points.

  1. The second gen iPhone will rock. Having seen it and looked at what specs there are, I'm not impressed with the current version.

    That said, Ballmer a tool? Next you'll tell me water is wet.
