IPhone One million Units and Growing
Apple has just sold its millionth iPhone which it achieved in less than three months after it’s debut. Ok some may have found fault with it and Apple has just cut a third off its price down to $399 but its still to launch in the UK and other markets and it took two years for Apple to sell a million iPods!
Steve Jobs last week offered a $100 credit to customers who paid $599 for the iPhone when it came out June 29. The cut and credits have further increased iPhone demand. Apple now predicts that it expects to sell 10 million iPhones in 2008 to take a 1 percent share of the mobile phone market.
We stand by our prediction that the iPhone will be the biggest thing to hit the market this year and will have a fundamental impact on all mobile devices and services.
