A couple years ago Marc Benioff dazzled the audience at Dreamforce by pulling four phones out of his suit jacket to make the point that his products run across many platforms and technologies. The high point of the talk happened when, after pulling out all those phones, Benioff pulled out an iPad from his pants. We all laughed and he made his point.
Now though there is an implied challenge from Oracle at OpenWorld. Oracle has made a faux iPad which is on display at Oracle OpenWorld. It’s a 70 inch HD TV displaying screens from Oracle applications. It’s not real but it’s fun. The next move might be Marc’s or not.
