《终于盼到了…

…iPhone手机下周五本地推出》

You know your product will get a successful launch when the local papers does free publicity for you on their front page. (Has ever a Nokia/Motorola/Sony Ericsson phone obtained this level of coverage in Singapore before?) On today’s edition of《联合早报》, we have another article titled 《哪些人在等待iPhone 3G手机?》 on the first page of its business section.

Interesting bits from the articles, direct quotes:

在本地,智能手机若一个月卖出1000台以上,就可以成为智能手机之王。目前最畅销的三星Omnia智能手机,销售首个月便卖出“好几千台”,而iPhone 3G若真的有“数以万计”的成绩[届时,已在新电信网站上登记预购的人数已到达“几万名”],将是众手机之王。

I found it interesting that even the reporter concluded the article with a count down.

因此,现在是倒数十天的时候!

Isn’t this exhibiting too much enthusiasm to be considered impartial reporting?

Incidentally, on two seperate occasions, both my parents showed me the article this morning as they were reading the papers. Even my mother who is impervious to advertisements knows and has heard about the iPhone. Welcome to the iPhone revolution…
