Three Months, 1 Million iPhones

In just three months since its Hollywood-like premiere, Apple has sold more than 1 million iPhones. That's quite a landmark, and a major victory for the hype-a-palooza that preceded the iPhone's rollout.

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.
