In its first two months, the iPhone took over half of the entire market for smart phones, and nearly 2% of the global cell phone market. And, oh yeah, it’s only being sold in the US.
Also, sales in August were up over the July debut, perhaps dispelling any notion that the iPhone will be a flash-in-the-pan.
Tell me again why I don’t have one yet?
CORRECTION: Re-reading the original story, Apple captured 1.8% of the US cell market, not global. Still, that’s nearly double what Steve Jobs said he was aiming for. Nice start, indeed.
