Microsoft COO: It looks like the iPhone 4 might be Apple's Vista

Kevin Turner

Sometimes, company executives provide the best one-liners. Microsoft’s chief operating officer, Kevin Turner, was speaking at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington D.C. when he let this little cherub go:

“It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their [Apple’s] Vista, and I’m okay with that.”

But the COO wasn’t done there, he also went on to say, “One of the things I want to make sure you know today is that you’re going to be able to use a Windows Phone 7 and not have to worry about how you’re holding it to make a phone call.” Burn, Kevin, burn. The quotes are funny, albeit useless, and inject some humor into the following situation: Apple’s flagship product is having several reception issues and Microsoft’s current mobile OS is two years behind the rest of the smartphone market. Wait… that’s not funny.Read
