Do you want a iphone?
Just having dinner with friends. A friend who will go to U.S. this March said she wanted to go there in June to buy the latest iPhone. "It is just fashion; imagine how people envy you when you use the iphone on the street", she said.
Steve always brings miracles, from Mac book to the lovely iPod. Using Apply products is just a brand of fashion. But if iPhone will succeed this time remains a question.
When iPod was born, not really many electronic gadget makers were dedicated to making mp3 players. In a Hong Kong electronic store such as Fortress, you could really find a hard time to pick a right one as there are many brands but not any very very famous ones.
But for mobile, it will be hard. As the big producers such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola have been dominating the market for a long time: they have reputation among customers and more importantly, have a good sales network and relations with mobile operators. iPhone will face stronger rivals compared with iPod's situation a few years ago.
Will Steve bring miracle this time? at least the stock market seems agree with a 7 percent increase on the stock when the annoucement was made. Let's wait and see.
