"We even hired an expert"

This tickled me. You may be aware that Sprint are launching an iPhone competitor in partnership with Samsung, the Samsung Instinct. It's a big deal for Sprint and interesting one for the rest of the industry to monitor up take by subscribers.

"This is certainly the biggest device that we will launch this year," David Owens, director of product commercialization at Sprint said. "We built it through a partnership with Samsung and even hired an expert to help us with UI design."

Wow they hired an expert. Does that mean the rest of the phone was designed and built by amateurs? There are so many ways to read that last sentence.
