Beautiful ladies love Apples iPhone. And devices featuring Googles Android operating system are reserved for geeks.
Thats according to Frank Meehan, founder and CEO of global handset manufacturer INQ, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Hutchison Whampoa.
If you go to a nightclub in any city in the world, the pretty girl has an iPhone or a BlackBerry,” Meehan told Mashable at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. She doesnt have an Android phone. She has no emotional attachment to an Android phone. Its too complicated. Its a geek device. Its all wrong.”
That statement is a bit ironic because London-based INQ recently released the Cloud Q and Cloud Touch handsets, which both run on Googles Android operating system and are designed for Facebook fanatics.
Despite releasing the new Android handsets, Meehan doesnt appear to be enamored with Googles platform.
Android manufacturers are all just focused utterly on the tech, because theyre all hardware guys,” he told Mashable. They dont get software. Theyve tried to outdo Apple with hardware, but the problem is the customer doesnt care.”
