I am still waiting to be supplied links that are less ambiguous. All I've received in return are clues to a supposed truth via a scavenger hunt. Something I'm not inclined to do.
Did you not read the thread? Or just not remember anything that was posted?"Q: Do you still think you'll sell 10 million iPhones in the first calendar year — or will it be more?
Jobs: We think 10 million is a realistic goal."http://www.usatoday.com/tech/techinv...enson-qa_N.htm"sell 10 million iPhones in the first calendar year"
Not ambiguous at all.
"Gene Munster - Piper Jaffray
Good afternoon. First in terms of the iPhone, Steve Jobs talked about 10 million units. Is that for fiscal '08 or calendar '08? Where did that number come from? Maybe just a little bit of logic behind that number.
Gene, calendar year '08 is what Steve referenced in his keynote. The point that he made was that the worldwide market for total cell phones is somewhere around 1 billion and our objective of getting 1% of it would yield 10 million units across the calendar year
Again, not ambiguous at all.
Can we let this ridiculous charade finally drop? We have three quotes from apple cited here (I haven't found a transcript of the other keynote yet). None say 10 million by the end of 2008. Seriously, continuing to insist that every statement apple has made about this is either ambiguous, or a statement made in error, just comes off as delusional.
If you want to believe that apple meant something other than what they have repeatedly said, you can go ahead and believe that. I guess you think that you are more qualified to turn Steve Jobs' thoughts into words than he is. But making that claim on a message board with zero evidence to support it, and expecting others to believe it, just seems kind of sad at this point.
