Mobile operator's cool shoulders


Party line

As much as iPhone didn't impress myself on the very first day it was showcased, another strong voice from mobile carrier community ( Australian Telstra Senior Executive Greg Winn ) thinks along the same line.

Sydney Morning Herald and The Age quoted Greg Winn:

“I think people overreacted to it”,


“There’s an old saying - stick to your knitting - and Apple is not a mobile phone manufacturer, that’s not their knitting”


“Cingular is not a global company,”


"You can pretty much be assured that Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and ZTE and others will be coming out with devices that have similar functionality."



However, Winn did say that the iPhone would probably be a successful initially.
We shall see.
