We’re at Microsoft’s Windows Phone launch in Manhattan right now, shouting questions at CEO Steve Ballmer.
He’s less inclined to talk with a fledgling online business news site, and more inclined to talk to a fledgling cable business network.
So, we have to shout our questions at him and hope for the best.
Just now, we learned which WP7 phone Ballmer will use – “all of them.”
Here’s how the “interview” went down:
SAI: Steve which one will you use?
BALLMER: I’ll take a firm no comment on that one.
SAI: why not? Come on.
BALLMER: actually I’ll use them all.
SAI: Yeah, you got keep an eye on them all, huh?
BALLMER: Squints both eyes.
When Ballmer wrapped up his interviews with Bloomberg, Fox Business, etc. we followed him and asked a few more questions.
First up: What do you think of the Google Robot car? Ballmer open his mouth for a second, shut it and kept walking away.
Second try: Ballmer was grabbing a sandwich and we asked, “Why do you think people want to jump in and out of their phones quickly.”
His terse response: “I’m not going to…” then he walked off into closed room and that was that.
Ballmer 1, SAI 0.
