I agree, I am starting to see fewer and fewer iphones every day at school.

No one is using iPhone? What a lie as a CEO of HTC... Ok..I believe you if you let me have it free. But, wait!! I would not take it even if it is free. lol

The president of HTC America is making decisions based on market research with a sample of ONE?!? (or however many people his daughter talked to) LOL

My wife and I just purchased iPhones from Verizon and I was shocked to see that the cheapest iPhone was still LESS or the SAME PRICE than anything else they had to offer (with the exception of the BOGO Blackberry and "pay-as-you-go" phones).

It is my belief,

that HTC, is not innovating...
As other Phone manufacturers they just copy iOS.
(Please remember what smart phones looked like in the pre-iPhone era).
Nowadays, every Smart phone looks more or less like an iPhone.
So, if an iPhone is not cool anymore, neither are the devices HTC manufactures!

I use Android and I am happy, however I plan to switch to iPhone (hopefully 5th generation). This switch I planned not because the Android one is a bad device, but because I use Macbook Pro as well as Mac Pro and having iPhone would give me a chance to enjoy a full glory of Apple's ecosystem having every device I own compatible and in sync. The only concern I have is battery life of an iPhone. I have an iPod touch 3rd gen. 64GB and I would not say I am happy with its battery life.
As regards HTC Americas President declaration that "iPhone is not cool anymore" looks like a desperate convulsions… Otherwise, probably it is something either US specific or I am too old to understand this, however I believe that not a phone or a device used makes one cool. If one is a looser no device would help.

I think this guy saw this survey and wanted to get out in front of it. The demand for the un-announced iPhone 5 is even higher than the iPhone 4 was. He must have been seeking out the students that he saw with other types of phones in their hands.

I tried to link to it but this sites spam filter didn't like it.

I agree, great answer. It never was about the cool factor. "Who are these folks anyway?"
