Today, I saw a headline on CNN Money: "Blackberry's iPhone killer leaks."
And I immediately want to kick someone.
The FIRST mistake in the headline? "Blackberry's." The CORRECT company name is RESEARCH IN MOTION, CNN Money.
The SECOND mistake is "iPhone Killer."
HAVE WE NOT LEARNED, CNN Money? YOU CANT KILL THE IPHONE. ITS A PLAGUE WITH NO CURE.
I wrote about "iPhone Killers 2 other times in this blog.
iPhone killer? Shut up already.
iPhone killer revisted
NOTHING HAS CHANGED. SINCE 2009. Apple screwed up maps SO BAD, they had to publicly apologize. People still bought the phones. People still lie, cheat, steal and scam to get stupid iPhones like they do for NO OTHER DEVICE. #FirstHandKnowledge
Let's look at the (shortest) list for 2012 of phones that should have committed 1st degree murder:
Htc one x .... Fabulous device. Only available on GSM carriers like AT&T on the US side of the ocean
Windows 8 phone.... Just not going to happen. It's a cool OS. There are some great phones, but they just aren't highly sought after.
BB 10 Phones: It's too early to tell how well the market will receive the new phones since they haven't launched yet.
Galaxy S 3... Probably the only smart phone in 4 years to outsell an iPhone. Samsung worked for apple for a long time and the device they made partnered with the excellent marketing is as close as you will ever get to killing iPhone. Which is still not going to die any time soon. All you have to do is observe the masses who bought iPad minis made with the 3 yr old screen from the original iPad to know I am telling the truth.
So, stop it. Stop trying to declare new phones as "iPhone killers." Stop trying. I mean it. #MomLook
