As the mobile industry continues to heat up we found some classy quotations that are sure to go down in history as some of the best…. and these are only from this week!
Google CEO Eric Schmidt was on Mad Money with Jim Cramer and commented about mobile advertising. “We can make more money in mobile than we do in the desktop eventually… and the reason is the mobile computer is more targeted. Think about it: you carry your phone, and your phone knows all about you… we can do a very, very targeted ad. Over time we will make more money from mobile advertising… not now, but over time.”
Research in Motion COO Dennis Kavelman commented about the rising popularity of smartphones, specifically the iPhone: “iPhones get people thinking (about smartphones)… I want to buy them [Apple] a drink.”
Nokia’s VP, Mark Selby,commented on the upcoming N96 and if it will be an “iPhone killer”: “I don’t know what there is to kill.”
