Just Answer the Question! Blackberry Boss Refuses to Admit Z10 is ‘iPhone Copy’

Posted: Updated:

This is a story about refusing to answer the question.  How about six times!  Politicians and Public Relations folks are famous for not answering or simply avoiding reporter questions.  But you would expect more when you are talking to the boss at Blackberry while trying to push his newest product.

Blackberry boss Stephen Bates repeatedly refused to answer questions about the similarity between the companies new Z10 and the iPhone during a bizarre radio interview in which he ignored repeated requests to address the issue.

Mr Bates was asked: 'What have you learned from Apple?' six times during a Radio interview, but each time refused to address the question before the interviewer gave up, saying 'you're clearly not answering'.

Many experts say the device actually borrows from several operating systems, not just Apple. Now technology experts are suggesting Apple could sue if it sees a drop in sales as a result of people switching to the Z10 or choosing a BlackBerry instead of an iPhone.
