The curve is actually being marketed (along with the pearl) as a consumer oriented blackberry.
Until we know the numbers, I'm not so sure people are staying away from the iPhone. If 1 million units are sold by the end of september, I would say that is pretty good.

I had no misstatements. I left because you openly lied about your iPhone use. You lied about knowing anything about the iPhone browser. Just re-read the posts and you will see for somebody that claims to have used an iPhone extensively, you had no idea about its basic features. Its a big waste of time to continue posting in a thread where somebody claims they have significant knowledge of a device, when actual they have never really used one.
In addition, your iPhone sales updates (from the local mall), and your failed apple stock analysis became boring and pathetic. Looking at your posts from other threads, I see I am not alone about my feelings about you. You have become the thread killer. If anybody wants to begin a non MikeC thread, I will be more than happy to participate.

10M by the end of 2008 would be as expected.
"Pretty good" is a relative term. No sure where that would fall in terms of a percentage of expectation.
Maybe "pretty good" would be 5.2M by Dec, and 12M in 2008, at least according to Goldman Sachs.

You visciousness on this simple fact makes me wonder if _you_ have every used an iPhone.
I bet you are a real master debater on your high school team with that kind of reasoning.
By the way, please point to where I was doing "stock analysis" for Apple (again, a mistatement by you.) I may take about what others have said about iPhone forecasts, but I do not talk about stock performance (unless it was a general market comment).
As far as yor feeling about me ("from looking at other threads"), I'm glad you are finding solace in your irrational anger, but that means exactly zilch. Please go find your imaginary TC friends and show them your perfect iPhone.
I'm the thread killer? Because I call a spade a spade and ofer my opinion? I think it's people like you that a.) crap threads, b.) are forms of mild amusement, and c.) feel the needs for self importance in online forums.
Get out of the basement and get some fresh air.

I never claimed higher knowledge about anything, just opinion based on observation. Keep the venom coming; at some point, the sac will run dry.
Apple historically underestimates (severely sometimes) their numbers. This is their manipulation of the market (which I don't blame them; more companies should play it that way.) Under this perspective they should easily beat 1M by end of Sept, and it wouldn't be surprising if the actual number was twice that.

I also have no desire on polluting another thread on going back and forth with you. As somebody just reminded me with a PM, I guess I should either ignore your attacks or just put you on my hide list. You have that affect on people I guess.

100% is expected or, on target. "Pretty good" would be well above than, again, depending on your definition. "pretty good" is in the eye of the beholder, hence my reference to something concrete like a percentage.
I know, I know, all that "math and numbers" stuff is so lame....

It really doesn't matter if you believe me...that is your perogative. But to keep claiming I'm lying 9even when the facts directly contradict that), is, in a word, sad.
If you have no interest in "polluting" a thread, then keep your mistatements to yourself. There's no free lunch, despite your attempts.
I think you start the attacks; sorry if someone finsihes them for you. Yes, the ignore option is very handy.

As always, I will give you the last word on the matter, as I grow bored of you again. I'm sure you will add something witty.

And only ONE iPhone at a festival with LOTS of people this past weekend. Tells me something.

Almost everyone here who has WM has Blackjacks, Qs and Dashes. I have seen the 8525 but not as many as the other 3. I have seen 8125s also. But it looks like the slim design of the WM Standard phones is appealing. I'd think people would prefer the full version of WM, but due to the design, many take the slimmer phones.
OT but I prefer not to ask in the anti-iPhone thread, but does iTunes now work well with Vista? I'm still looking into getting it.

Hardly anyone here recommended Vista wholeheartedly in the thread where I asked for opinions on whether to upgrade or not, even Windows users. :shake: It doesn't look good for Vista either, LOL! It's unpopular on CNET too. Is it going to be a flop or a success? maybe after a service pack, people will like it better.

I'm not saying this is right or wrong, just the way it is. You are hellbent on disproving, for whatever reason.
I like how my use of the iPhone, since it isn't a wonderfully perfect match to your use, is somehow "no knowledge of the device". Your response is about the same as covering your ears and sing "lalalalalalalalalala".

iTunes is a quirky beast on any platform (except Mac, of course). You'd think Apple would make it simpler instead of more complex, but noooooooooo.
But until something better comes along, it will still be on top.

But if I have to run a 1GB RAM laptop, it's going XP.
As for security features, it's always a tradeoff; no security = faster, more security = slower. MS had to address it.
I think XP's edge is the drivers - Vista drivers are still lagging, which to me is the biggest problem. MS and ISV screwed the pooch on that one.
The better memory management is reason enough alone to switch (for me).
