A little perspective

A couple of colleagues at work use iPhones and are (often justifiably) quick to boast about them. The iPhone is after all a revolutionary device, but it does have its shortcomings.

One thing worth noting however is the market size they live in. In its first year the iPhone sold 6M units (to June 2008), and Apple’s goal for all 2008 was to sell 10M units (I haven’t yet seen offical figures to confirm or deny this). So, that’s a lot right? Well, it kinda is, until you compare that to Nokia who has volumes in excess of 100M devices per quarter, or >1M per day! Now that’s a lot of phones.
