The head of the Chinese LeEco, known in the market of smartphones, televisions and virtual reality under the brand LeTV, called Apple legacy company. The opinion of Jia Latina results in the publication RNS.
The range of products LeEco — smartphones, TVs, mountain bikes and electric vehicles. Last week the company introduced does not require driver’s electric supercar LeSEE.
According to Latina, foreign competitors do not bother him. In particular, Apple devices he called outdated, old-fashioned.
“Apple has only individual applications. It was the right choice in the first phase of development of mobile networks, when the network and processors were not fast enough, says 43-year-old entrepreneur. But now we are entering a new era of mobile Internet, these problems no longer exist. Furthermore, separate app means only large obstacles for users”.
Latin also highlighted a sharp weakening of the innovative momentum Apple: “for Example, a month ago, Apple released iPhone SE. From the point of view of a representative industry is a product with a very low technological level… We think it’s something that they shouldn’t have done”.
In March last year, LeTV compared Apple with the Fuhrer of Nazi Germany. In the microblog LeTV got this poster, which depicts the smartphone and the two arrows on the left – smiling children, to the right of Adolf Hitler with outstretched hand. On the sleeve of the Fuhrer swastika instead of the Apple logo. The Chinese message is clear: buyers have a choice, either to use the open Android platform, or to obey strict rules of the iOS ecosystem.
Apple has not officially reacted to statements by a Chinese competitor.
