Apple Sells 525,000 iPhones in 3 Days - Page 3

Although I have been having a jolly time bashing the iPhone over the past few weeks, I must admit that the reason that was given by Steve-o for going the slow route was fairly legit sounding... evidently the 3G chips currently available are power hogs and did not fit within the battery life/power consumtion envelope that Apple was shooting for, which I can understand. The one thing that truly impresses me about the iPhone is its battery life. The non user-replacable battery, however.

So you're saying Apple is a... a... prostitute?

You're saying the iphone isn't for business users, and that its just an overpriced trendy thing.

Of course it isn't for business users. AT&T won't let you use it on a business plan, and they never tried to get business users to buy it. If you're a business guy, then the iphone was never for you. Its just like the ipod, they market it to teens. And we don't know how it costed apple to make, it could actually be really cheap. Like the ps3, its not overpriced, its just too much.

Also, everyone saying the iphone is just a bunch of features and you don't need it, WHAT DO YOU NEED DUAL CAMERAS FOR?!
Not for business users, teens can't afford it, not for people who just want a phone that, get this, makes a call in one or two steps. Who is the iPhone for?

In comparison to the PS3, it's not worth it.
I'd rather buy something off of Sony then that.

I like the iPhone but I'm waiting for version 2 to jump on board. Hopefully by then they'll make it available on the fastest networks (3g) and up the storage ante a bit. Battery technology seems to advance nearly as fast as processor tech, so it is certainly within the realm of possibility. Otherwise, I love it. I would never buy a mac computer, but I love my iPod and look forward to an iPhone down the road.

And no I don't plan to use it for business, I just like having the coolest newest toys on the market! It'll look nice nestled between my Xbox 360 and PS3.

So it appears that just because something is expensive, it can still sell really well.
I hate to see people throw their money away.

I saw a similar post like this on digg comparing the Iphone to the Razr. They talked about how the Iphone has sold so much more in it's first week (700,000 units)... Duhhhh, obviously it would since it had as much hype as a next gen console system.... The Razr had hardly any hype, but the stupid apple happy fags (no offense to apple users) who control digg, buried all those comments supporting that fact...

If the exact same product was released by say, Motorola, a company with a proven track record with phones, the iPhone would not have sold nearly as many as it did.

Now that the Apple fans all have one, I have a feeling sales will go down quite a bit.
