WIN: iPhone Mania Is Ridiculous

$200 iPhone VouchersWhen the first iPhone was released, the sticker price was six hundred dollars. That’s six hundred just for the unit, not counting the monthly plan. A scant two months later, Apple dropped the price by two hundred bones and gave all those suckers early adopters some vouchers to use at their store. And you know what? All those early adopters are still lining up to get their fix. L. Ron Hubbard ain’t got crap on Steve Jobs.

$999.99 Price of iPhone App I Am Rich$999.99 is the price for Armin Heinrich’s I Am Rich iPhone app that does absolutely nothing except flaunt your wealth to the world. It was available for one day until Apple pulled it but that didn’t stop eight people from buying it. Six were from the United States, one was from Germany, and the last was from France. Heinrich pocketed a cool $5,600 for his trouble. Not bad.

75 Days to Sell 1 Million iPhonesIt took Apple a mere 75 days to sell one million iPhones. Seventy five days… that’s 13,333.33 iPhones a day. The scary part is that iPhones flew off the shelves most rapidly after the price drop on September 5th. From September 5th to September 9th (the day they sold their one millionth), they sold 27,000 iPhones a day versus the 9,000 a day they were previously recording.

Now I’m going to go out and buy an iPhone.

    All that hype about Apple and iPhone… I read in eWeek, but I can’t find the magazine anymore – it’s laying in my office somewhere – but I read that even though Apple sold 1 million+ iPhones in a short amount of time, it is still nowhere near Nokia in sales and number of phone sold. Nokia’s not as geeky but they quietly sell their products… 🙂

    Talk about ridiculous…I sold my original used 8GB iPhone two days ago for $350. That’s more than I paid for my new 16GB iPhone!

  3. I’ve wanted an Iphone for some time now and I finally bought one. I love it! I waited and got a good deal on a used 8GB Iphone.

    Crazy indeed. My phone was 49 dollars, and it makes phone calls when I dial a number. It does everything I need a phone to do and more.
