Apple COO Timothy Cook said to financial analysts yesterday that he believes that netbooks which are available on the market today are junk:
“For us it is about doing great products. When I am looking at what is sold in the netbook market, I see cramped keyboards, junky hardware, very small screens, bad software. […] As it exists today, we are not interested in nor would it be something customers would be interested in the long term,” said Timothy D. Cook, chief operating officer of Apple, during a conference call with financial analysts.
Still, Mr. Cook does not rule out a possibility when Apple could release an innovative, yet cost-efficient product aimed at basic computer users.
“If we find a way to deliver an innovative product that really makes a contribution, we will do that. We have some interesting ideas,” stated the chief operating officer of the company.
