Apple Sells 525,000 iPhones in 3 Days

It appears that all of the minuses stacked against the iPhone weren't enough to phase buyers who lined up days in advance to purchase the latest "it device" from Cupertino. Not even the $499 (4GB) and $599 (8GB) price tags were enough to keep Apple from selling around 525,000 iPhones from 6:00 PM Friday evening through close of business on Sunday.

Hey look guys, despite your constant bashing of the iphone, 525,000 iPhones were still sold!!!

So it appears that just because something is expensive, it can still sell really well.

Yes on that 3G. My phone is 3G, but there is not 3G networks in my area. The iphone is a fashion statement just like the ipod was IMO.

This was my post form the other thread like 5 hours ago: I am in that situation being a professional with having a smartphone for email clients, word documents and all that jazz. The iPhone though really isnt a professional phone..its more of a toy for enthusiasts which want all of the benefits of a low end smartphone in a trendy expensive package. Like I noted above, HTC makes FAR better phones than Apple or Plam or Motorola ever will hope to make. Why?...Because they are aimed directly at the professional market.

The HTC Kaiser which will be released has dual cameras..One on the front for vido conferencing <--Again, a professional thing; and one on the back for regular photographs. It also has an extreme media application for client based email servers with POP3 as well as Word/Excel/PPT editing applications. It also has support for the new network services which are wirelessly 3600Kbps to a mobile device at a constant speed <--Again annother professional thing;

So, Like above, the iPhone is just an overpriced trendy thing that is overhyped and over advertised. Although, I must give high creditation to Apple for marketing tactics because it seems as if they've worked

-GM

EDIT: The HTC is also the very first phone that offers Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, 3G, EDGE, GSM/GPRS, HDCP all in one package

Nobody really cares. You're all just repeating yourselves.

Go overclock something.

Atleast Sony's product is worth the money....and the PS3 is a completely different type of eletronics device so there is no comparision...
