Internet not for iPhone says Microsoft CEO Bullmer

Well now here’s an interesting remark made by Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO, which Todd Bishop of techflash picked up on that was at the end of an AP story on Windows 7.

Apparently Bullmer, when asked whether the phone could supplant the PC and the tech choice of mobile consumers, remarked, “Let’s face it, the Internet was designed for the PC. The Internet is not designed for the iPhone.”

Ballmer went on to say…”That’s why they’ve got 75,000 applications – they’re all trying to make the Internet look decent on the iPhone.”

Bishop goes on to say that it strikes him as odd that Buller referred to the iPhone specifically and not mobile phones in general, and says “If the Internet experience on the iPhone is lacking, then isn’t it lacking on other devices, as well? Was Ballmer trying to criticize the iPhone? Or was he holding it up as the gold standard, the device that represents the best of the mobile phone market in general?”
