"'It's a pretty eye-catching design,' said Peter Chou, president and chief executive officer of HTC, during an interview at the International Consumer Electronics Show, but 'we have our own cool stuff coming out as well.' HTC has no plans to follow Apple into the music-handset business, he said, and nor will his company try to mimic the new design. HTC has also not been in discussions with Microsoft over a Zune mobile phone, he said. HTC has been a longtime Microsoft partner in the mobile phone and PDA (personal digital assistant) business. 'We need to differentiate ourselves. We will not be successful if we are a copy cat,' he said."
Apple sure knows how to make a splash. If that had been Dell's first entry into the mobile phone business I don't think we would be seeing such a fuss. Good for HTC to keep on their path and not jump in and start making silly "wanna-be" iPhones. I just hope that HTC's idea of "cool stuff" is more than the ability to finally produce a dust free screen.
