Palm asks, are you still using iPhones?
Roger McNamee, Palms biggest cheerleader at financial backer recently gaffed that, “the beautiful thing June 29,2009, is the two year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone.
He also followed on to say in an interview in San Francisco that not one of those people will still be using an iPhone after a month”. Well here we are today July 29,2009 – two years and a month since the first shipment. Given that 5.2 million iPhones were sold by Apple last quarter, and AT&T activated 2.5 million of them.
It looks like we are leaning towards a number which quite simply does not reflect the statement of ’not one’. Palm have in fact retracted the hyperbole with a somewhat element of speed. For more info please visit here
