IPhone 3G Still King!

…in the first quarter of IPhone 3G availability ended September 27, 2008 6.9 million units were sold, more than the 6.1 million first generation units sold in the previous 5 quarters combined!!  You can read the earnings press release here, and listen to the earnings call from earler today here.

With the popularity of my Palm Pre Is Hot And The Buzz Is Loud – What Does It Mean For The Apple IPhonearticle, the thinking might be that those who had not yet pulled thetrigger on an IPhone might be delaying that purchase, waiting to seewhat the Palm Pre has to offer.

In the meantime, the IPhone is still revenue King.  I hear that ifyou strike at the King, you should Kill the King, since wounding theKing will just make them angry and more of a threat.

I don’t think the King is Wounded Yet.  The Game Continues…
