John Paczkowski tells us about All Things D’s Kara Swisher and her chat with Palm CEO Jon Rubenstein at CES. Palm’s CEO flatly states he has never used the world’s most popular smartphone, IE his competition. Don’t really buy that, and Kara didn’t either. Note the dubious look on her face. Really good excerpt here:
“We don’t pay that much attention to Apple….I know it sounds really strange,” says Rubinstein.
“Really?” Kara replies. “You don’t worry about the iPhone?”
“No, I really don’t,” Rubinstein answers.
“I don’t believe you,” says Kara, telegraphing a sentiment I imagine is widely held among the audience.
Rubinstein: “I don’t have an iPhone. I’ve never even used one.”
