Apple Should Pull The Plug On The iPhone – John C. Dvorak March, 28, 2007


With Blackberry and Nokia making the news for all the wrong reason lately. It is important to reflect what the world thought about the device that will break the cell phone titans to their knees.

George Santayana said: “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.”

Here is long time Apple critic John C. Dvorak take on the iPhone back in 2007

[quote cite=”John C. Dvorak – March 28, 2007″ url=””]The hype over the unreleased iPhone has actually increased over the past month despite the fact that nobody has seen or used the device. This, if nothing else, proves the power of branding and especially the power of brand loyalty. .

It’s the loyalists who keep promoting this device as if it is going to be anything other than another phone in a crowded market. And it’s exactly the crowded-market aspect of this that analysts seem to be ignoring….

What Apple risks here is its reputation as a hot company that can do no wrong. If it’s smart it will call the iPhone a “reference design” and pass it to some suckers to build with someone else’s marketing budget. Then it can wash its hands of any marketplace failures. .

It should do that immediately before it’s too late. Samsung Electronics Ltd. might be a candidate. Otherwise I’d advise you to cover your eyes. You’re not going to like what you’ll see.[/quote]
