iPhone 3G units outnumber first generation

We wrote about iPhone hiccups, delays, complaints about slowness, and botched mobileme launch, as many others have. However that maybe, after only 7 weeks after the launch, the 3G apparently outnumbers the first generation of iPhones. Writes TechCrunch

It took Apple nearly a year to sell 6 million first generation iPhones. A million 3Gs were sold in the first weekend the device was on saleā€”it took Apple 74 days to sell a million of the first gen iPhones […] Apple is on pace to sell more than 40 million of the devices in the next year. At what point is it no longer considered a niche device in the cell phone world?

All hail mighty Apple and the power of brands.

Continuing pressure for Apple, iPhone

More and more voices become audible about Apple’s marketing practices. People are getting upset: reports of cranky people waiting in lines for hours, then waiting for activation, waiting for the promised, but bungled MobileMe service… Apple makes people wait. And then wait some more. Who could blame people for being upset? And now even the advertising lies to you. Still, unlike most other brands, people blame themselves when it comes to Apple. How long will it last?
