I don’t know about you, but Pink gadgets bug me, I get that some women like Pink, but the thought of pulling out a Pink device in a business setting makes me cringe. Women have fought long and hard for respect in the workplace. I find my self asking, do we really want to undermine that with little girl accessories? Unless these devices are being aimed at children or are in support of breast cancer I’m not convinced that its right that women be assigned one color from the whole beautiful rainbow.
Even as I say these words I know that in Asia women identify with cute, standing on any street corner you hear a distinctive voice that women use to talk to their boyfriends or husbands. The chinese have a word for it, and the reality is that over here men carry purses that they might call man bag’s but clearly aren’t. When I ask a male friend why he’s carrying a purse he asked me, why you don’t think this is a nice bag? Fair enough.
As long as they keep Pink to a market where grown women freak out like 5 year olds in Hello Kitty stores I should probably keep my opinions to my self.
Oh yeah, Samsung gave no indication if they planned on launching the pink Galaxy S II anywhere but Korea. They did mention that the white edition of the S II (available for some time alongside the original black one) has reached sales of 850,000 units in Korea. The Android 4.0 update will be arriving the first half of 2012 and if you’re looking to pick it up on Amazon for $559.
Update: Looks like they didn’t listen, but thankfully they’ve kept it to Hong Kong and Taiwan!
