Apple announced today it sold it’s one millionth iPhone. That 1,000,000 phones in 74 days. It took them one week to sell one million songs at $0.99, two years to sell one million iPods and about two months to sell one million iPhones at around $500 average (remember, they didn’t sell many of the 4 GB iPhones – rumor had it that 90% of the iPhones were the 8 GB model which is how I did my math above).
So I’m curious. Are you more likely to buy an iPhone now that it seems a lot of other people have or did today’s announcement not sway you at all? The results of this informal poll are important – it sheds light on Apple’s marketing: are they making this point for investors (the ones who sold the stock when it seemed like not that many people were persuaded to buy in the first 2 days) or to entice the late-majority customers to jump on the bandwagon today, especially combined with the new $399 price point. Just add your comments below and let me know if you’re more likely, less likely, or unaffected by Apple’s press release today.
