mr microsoft – steve ‘developers’ ballmer on the iPhone in april 2007….
Thereís no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance. Itís a $500 subsidized item.
steve jobs a couple of days ago at apples financial statement for the current quarter ….
As you can see….financial results are truly stunning. …….., adjusted sales for the quarter were $11.68 billion…….. if this isnít stunning, I donít know what is, all due to the incredible success of the iPhone 3G.
I would like to now highlight two remarkable milestones resulting from iPhoneís outstanding performance last quarter. The first is that Apple beat RIM. In their most recent quarter, Research in Motion, or RIM, reported selling 6.1 million BlackBerry devices. Compared to our most recent quarter sales of 6.9 million iPhones, Apple outsold RIM last quarter and this is a milestone for us. RIM is a good company that makes good products and so it is surprising that after only 15 months in the market, we could outsell them in any quarter.
But even more remarkable is this ó measured by revenues, Apple has become the worldís third-largest mobile phone supplier. I know this sounds crazy, but itís true ó as measured in revenues, not units, Apple has become the third largest mobile phone supplier. Letís look at the ranking ó Nokia is clearly number one at 12.7 billion; Samsung number two at 5.9 billion; Apple is number three at 4.6 billion; Sony Ericsson, number four at 4.2; LG, number five at 3.4 billion; Motorola, number six at 3.2; and RIM number seven at 2.1. Pretty amazing.
