Se o iPhone 3GS terá tanta demanda quanto o 3G nos seus primeiros meses após o lançamento, temos que esperar para ver, mas por enquanto ele já garantiu uma boa largada.

Note que o primeiro iPhone levou 74 dias para vender 1 milhão de unidades, enquanto o iPhone 3G e o 3GS levaram três dias para alcançar a marca.

Então, o que você acha? Será que o público continuará a adotar o 3GS como ocorreu com o 3G? O hype do novo aparelho certamente não tem sido tão forte quando o de seu irmão mais velho, mas talvez a posição da Apple no mercado de celulares tenha se fortalecido desde então.

Confissão sem vergonha:  contanto que meu iPhone tenha forte suporte a aplicativos, eu realmente não me importo com o número de vendas. Na verdade, quanto menos vender, melhor. Esses geeks da Apple são tão irritantes. Sim, eu mesmo me incluo nesta crítica. [Apple and Apple]
