HTC President: "iPhones Are Not That Cool Anymore"

Jay Yarow, writing for Silicon Alley Insider:

Apple's iPhone 3GS, a phone that's two years old, is the second best selling phone in the U.S., trailing the iPhone 4, which is the best selling phone.

But, despite the great sales, Apple has a big problem, according to Martin Fichter, acting president of HTC America. He says, the iPhone is "not that cool anymore."

I wonder whether he'll be saying that late next month. Maybe last year's iPhone 4 debut is instructive?
