    ...it was actually 280,00-300,000. I dont remember the exact number though...
    Apple never said they sold that many in the first few days - it was the media and analysts who predicted thats what they were selling. Apple didn't release any sales info about the iPhone until a few weeks after when they announced thier quarterly earnings.

    I don't think the iphone could ever best bb. Bb service is just too stable. Seems like the choice for apps for the iphone are limited. Especially for business users. Bb will be on top for years to come.

    Apple is losing a crapload of loyal customers and I do believe that their stock dipped a bit.

    And on second thought, how are Apple releases going to be seen now, people are going to be afraid to buy a product within the first couple of months after it comes out.

    I think I jumped to too many conclusions before I made this thread:

    This could actually be a good thing for RIM!!!
    Perhaps this appeases the loyal Appleites a bit. I'm sure their stock bounces back and they retain most of their customers.

    Who knows...It's believed to be with the launch of the 9xxx series. But nobody knows when that will be...

    Emphasis mine. What metric are you using to declare the iPhone the most taked about gadget in decades? I would think that declaration would be hard to prove. What are qualifying to reach that determination? Sure the BB would deserve that crown more than the iPhone.

    Also in terms of consumer mindshare, sure many know what the iPhone is (or at least the hype), but it is likely possible that even more people know the Blackberry by name. In fact, just like with Kleenex, many assume the name blackBerry to be synonymous with a PDA-phone that receives email. how many Treos and iPaqs have been mistakenly called "blackberrys" by the unwashed? A lot i'll wager.

    and, just to be a jerk, since you mentioned DECADES. Well, the PC was a gadget that came out not-too-long-ago (since we are taking decades, right?). I think alot has been said about the PC, surely much more than just the iPhone. And let's not forget the Internet that Al Gore invented. and surely the iPhone cannot defaeat the iPod for mindshare, either.

    I believe iPhone has a lot of hype over the past few months, whereas the Blackberry has had a lot of buzz over the last few years.

    Besides is has been said in a couple of posts that blackberries belong to their own cathegory.
    The only real concern I see, is all of the homebrew that's available for the iPhone, may allow at least allow gadget enthusiasts to decide to go with an iPhone. But I don't think in general there's a real threat.
