    Its annoying hearing people talk bad about the company. If you don't like it then leave, but there is no need to put it down

    What some of the fanboys seem to be overlooking when some of the members of this forum question OP tactics isn't the guerrilla marketing but the lack of insight and anticipating the backlash of a global community. Fine, some have mentioned it's a tried and tested marketing tool in China. Personally, I don't give a flying **** if someone destroys their iphone and shoves it up a homeless person's *** but I damn sure won't want my company to project such a negative image on a global stage.

    I wonder if any of the people at OP have a MBA in Global Management. A huge part of marketing is understanding the different cultures. I see some of the 16 people frequently shown in the promo pics are caucasian but have no idea of their background or input. I did see that the person they list as in charge of customer service cite a high school as her school background.

    This concerns me.
    Especially since potentially they'll be dealing with millions of individual sales and a certain percentage of failures are going to happen.

    So while we want this company to succeed we question if they are anticipating and rightly choosing the proper course of action through the myriad of challenges that face a young company.

    So you fanboys that don't like to see the repeated threads they're a simple solution.
    Don't click on the link. That's your choice.;)

    You've obviously never worked in a marketing department.

    You have to be shitting me. "....backlash of a global community..."? We're talking 100 phones, you nimrod. What is this about....world peace?

    Ultimately the phone will sell if it's an excellent piece of hardware (functionality and reliability) and if the software is stable and robust....and at the right price point. Your post shows your naivete. "Projecting an image....." WTF. What is the target market for this phone? How does this goofy marketing campaign affect it? I would assume that most folks won't even know about the 100 freebies that end up in some Silicon Valley recycling bin (substitute your own whereabouts).
