Even with some technical and security setbacks -- plus an embarrassing price
cut that reddened the faces of early customers -- the iPhone continues to be
one of the hottest digital accessories. By comparison, it was almost two years
before a million pairs of ears were plugged into an iPod -- iCaramba!
Apple's iCEO Steve Jobs reports that he hopes the iPhone will become Apple's
third largest revenue stream, following the Mac and the iPod. He has also stated
that customers who paid the original price of $599 when it came out last June
will get a $100 store credit. That should help soothe the angered masses of
early iPhone adopters. He further states his expectations of selling 10 million
iPhones in 2008, digging into the realms of the BlackBerry and Palm Pilot.
