iPhone again

iPhone

I am all thinking what would have happened at Apple when iPhone as a product was conceived? 

What kind of tussle would have occurred between engineers and marketers/visionaries regarding the feasibility of the product? You want ipod, phone and internet to cram into one tiny piece of marvel, impossible? I am sure there would be some kind of arguments that would have popped up at the drawing board. 

  • Is it okay for apple to make a phone?
  • Can it survive the market dominated by Nokia?
  • Can the low power expectations are meet?
  • Will the multi touch screen survive the usage?
  • How will test this complex thing?
  • How can things be made simple? Is it possible?

And hopefully a zillion other questions, I am sure. I wish I could know how they try to overcome these and deliver the product that is revolutionary.

The tussle between the engineers and marketing team is present in all companies.

If the debate is open and both the parties listen then we can have wonderful product like iPhone, else that brilliant idea will meet its death in the drawing board.

    To make a good product, the entire team has to show commitment and has to make personal sacrifices…. so I guess it is the employees which requires commitment…
    but again to get commitment from the employees, the company has to demonstrate how important that design/product is for the company and its road-map.

    so company is the starting point of commitment and this feeling propagates to the rest of the company which ultimately makes the product successful.

    Pegasus, who needs commitment, is it the company or people who work for it?

    Pegasus, I see apple as company dedicated commitment and excellence.

    Gp. Price makes the difference. But look at the success of iPod. Again it will be foolish to compare Nokia with Creative or other mp3 player company.

    Happy Pongal!

    I believe this is another premium product. Its just for the exclusive market. But in the end…the price makes all the difference. if Nokia is willing to slash prices every 2 months…then Iphone with only one model will have a very short life. Unless of course it can pack 5 years of technology at one go :p

    the commitment of apple to this product is so high that they even dropped the word computers from Apple computers
