Ok, today is the big day, the start of CTIA and the keynote of Mr. Magenta himself, Robert Dotson! Here we go:
And nothing, turns out the keynotes were more of a panel discussion with the CEO’s of Sprint, Verizon and T-mobile answering questions via a moderator. The only real noteworthy statement regarding anything anyone is remotely interested in was this:
“When we look at the consumer space, the most important piece is how to unleash all the innovation that you didn’t see in 2G. It’s trying to release all of that explosiveness. A bulk of our revenues are coming from non-voice alternatives. It’s ensuring that we do tap into the genius of the development community. It starts leveraging the relationship you’ve probably heard about with Google. We need to ensure that we not only unleash the innovation side, but really expand and shorten the time to market. The time from the start of a device until when it means something to the consumer has been too long. The focus of T-Mobile is to get that independence in a more productive way.”
So long story short, the keynote was much ado about nothing.
However, here is something to cheer all of you up, I started a thread on this via the forum but it was suggested that I post this here to try and lighten the mood a little. So you all know by now we get tips with information and with that information we post on the blog, well one such tip came in today yesterday and I thought everyone would get a kick out of it, clearly a man who is still mad at his dad:
“YEAH OK … I AM GONNA BE DREAMING ABOUT THE NEXT PHONE COMING OUT …. GET REAL PEOPLE THERE ARE PEOPLE STARVING HUNGRY IN AFRICA. WHO GIVES A f*** ABOUT 3G ….. WHO SAID I WANT TO CHECK MY EMAIL IN MY PHONE ….. GET A LIFE f***ERS WE ARE NOT STUPID …. HERE IS MY LATEST NEWS FOR YOU D***HEADS. “GO f*** YOURSELF”
Thanks “Billy” that was very funny…I apologize for the “intense” language, its certainly not PG rated but still, its definitely worth a laugh!
Also, this thread which started all the rumor mongering has taken on a life of its own, 60 pages at last count and we’re still letting it go forward. If you have about 6 hours to kill, it is DEFINITELY worth the read, if only for the poetry, metaphors, zack morris photoshopping, and a guy willing to skip his girlfriends birthday and so much more…read it.
Once again, link to the thread of all threads here.
