HTC boss, Florian Seiche, has been extolling the virtues of the new Google Android-based G1 mobile phone, designed by his company, "It is so fast, responsive and easy to navigate that you basically have the same browsing experience you would have on your desktop at home," he said in an interview with the Telegraph website.
And, as such, Seiche believes that the device signifies the end of the PC. At least in terms of accessing the Internet, as Seiche sees the PC as an "awkward" tool for online use.
Seiche is bullish about the release of the G1, saying it has, "very, very cool and compelling features", that "many users will find it highly addictive". Including an MP3 player that plugs into Amazon's music download service.
"That is all available on day one of the platform going live," Mr Seiche says. "So you can just imagine within six months, within a year, the vast kind of choices consumers will have about what to turn their mobile device into."
