Executive, Robbie Bach: KIN Unveiling, Remarks by Robbie Bach, President, Entertainment & Devices Division , San Francisco, Calif.

ROBBIE BACH: Good morning everybody. My name is Robbie Bach. I’m President of the Entertainment and Devices Division at Microsoft. On behalf of our partners, Verizon, Vodafone and Sharp, I want to thank everybody for coming this morning., Now, this is really one of the better parts of my job, and I’m not talking about being with 100 of my closest friends in a bar at 10:00 a.m., that’s not what I’m talking about. But it is an opportunity for us to reveal what we’ve been working on in Redmond, in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, with Verizon; in Northern Japan with Sharp; and on in England with Vodafone. I guess the best way to tell the story is to really go to the customers. And we’ve spent thousands of hours with thousands of interviews with customers to really understand their needs before we wrote a single line of code., So, let’s take a look at a video of what they think about what they want in a phone., (Video segment.) as seen on HammondCast
