At today’s press conference concerning the iPhone 4 reception issues Steve Jobs indirectly attacked the new group of large smart phones that have been coming onto the market calling them “Hummers” and claiming that “No one is going to buy them.”
Oddly enough Droid X which is one of the largest phones ever released is reportedly selling out around the country, even with the large initial stock shipped out by Verizon. It is also odd that Jobs compared large phones to Hummers, as some might take this as a compliment. In the same conference Jobs showed videos of other phones losing coverage when held in very specific ways, prompting angry reactions from Rim and Nokia among others.
So it seems in the short run Mr. Jobs is simply wrong about “Hummer Phones” and if Droid X sales continue at this rate he will be regretting his statement for sometime to come.
