Tim Cook at D10: ‘we’re going to double down on secrecy on products,’ be ‘super transparent’ on other things
Apple CEO Tim Cook opened AllThingsD’s D10 conference this evening with a sit down interview, and provided a slightly surprising answer when questioned about the company’s penchant for secrecy. Asked by Walt Mossberg whether Apple would be less secretive going forward, Cook replied that “we’re going to double down on secrecy on products.” That was said with a bit of a smile on his face, it should be noted, but he was clear that it’s something he’s serious about. On that same note, however, Cook said that Apple would be “super transparent” when it comes to other things, like supplier work and environmental issues — something that he hopes will be an area where other companies copy Apple.
We had our hands on a raw version of the Droid Bionic way back at CES, but two listings on Amazon for desktop and car docking stations, uncovered by Android Central forum posters, may give the clearest look at the phone so far. As you can see in the shot above of the desktop dock Motorola’s slab appears to have a chrome ring running around the outside, while the dock itself has a 3.5mm audio out, HDMI output and USB ports. There’s no price or release date listed for either accessory but if you’ve been lusting over the beast and its rumored specs we’re figuring some quiet time with these shots is just what the doctor ordered — check after the break for a shot of the car dock and the back of the desktop docking station.
