You've underestimated apple fans.

They came out of the wood work for this one. Maybe none of them had phones? Must have been too busy building photo albums and web pages and imovies.

I know a guy who waited for 20 hours for the iphone. When he finally got in the store, he bought two of them. He kept one, and then scalped the second one for twice what he paid for it. So yeah, he got his iphone for free. I think i would wait 20 hours for a free iphone.

My friend has been having trouble with his dsl since the iphone came out. DSL and their crappy over populated tubes... cable internet ftw! Well i guess its hard for most people to shell out $1500 for a new phone plus mandatory 2yr contract.

Well to be honest the ipod was more revolutionary. At the time of the ipod there wasn't really anything like it. At the time of the iphone there are phones around that do the exact same thing and more (just not in the same "apple" type of way). Ipod was one of those things that established a market. Like TiVo and Atari's (PVR/DVR and Home entertainment consoles (nintendos))

Well, there were a lot of similar devices before the iPod, but Apple spent enough on marketing that the average consumer would think (and still does) MP3 player = iPod, instead of the other way around.

Good marketing would be keeping the sales at a steady pace, not one day of big sales... then crashing. (I'm guessing this is what is happening or will happen). It doesn't take a marketing genius to know this.... It's basically the same thing that happened to the PS3... lol.

Also, I don't think it's just Apple fanboys...it's more than that. It's the fact that Apple can market sand to a Camel...people just wanna buy the iPhone. I think people that said they wouldn't buy one will end up buying it when the sales person shows it off....plus, a kid gets a bit of extra money this summer working...."hey, I want an iPhone."
