You donâ€™t see too many interviews with Appleâ€™s CEO, Tim Cook, as he seems to be quite discreet about his plans running the company. But this week, Bloomberg Businessweek published a rare, and quite interesting interview with mister Cook. Yesterday, we also reported that he has now joined Twitter, and we hope heâ€™ll use it frequently.
Tim Cook discussed about why Nokia failed and talking about the iPhone 5c, he said that Apple doesn't chase the low-end market, referring to it as â€œjunk businessâ€.
When asked about the tablets vs PC fight, Appleâ€™s CEO reiterated his strong belief that tablets are going to win soon, saying:
"The tablet market in some ways is the smartphone market, just with a lot more players in it... I have always said that the tablet market was going to surpass the PC market. I was saying that well before it was viewed to be sane to say that. It's clear that we're 24 months away from that.â€
What do you think? Is this a good estimate or it might take a little longer until we reach that moment?
