I understand the comments but they did meet their 10 million in 2008 goal with 2 months remaining. Even with the numbers sold including those in the supply chain, they topped their goals. Add to that a 1.14 Billion in profit in the quarter and they are performing just fine (of course economy now could hurt that).

And "2.4 million iPhone 3G activations in the quarter, 40% of which were new AT&T subscribers". So AT&T is happy as well.

I still love this site, a post comes on about the number of sales in a quarter but yet people keep up with the "its not a business phone" or "its not good" type of arguments.
Everyone knows the differences and the similarities by now, this is about numbers.
Think about the number of Mobile users are BES type users, then compare that to normal users and you will see why Apple and RIM are striving to get to as many "Consumers" as possible.
