    HOLY CRAP.

    I bet you Micro$oft haven't sold 1,000,000 Zunes yet.

    I take that a step further. I bet not even 1,000,000 know what a "Zune" is.

    It was pretty much a guaranteed success though. Great marketing, great hype, and a truly beautiful handheld MOBILE device that truly delivers (except the telcos responsible for bringing it out, and their delays, stock shortages and shambolic handling of the "pre-ordering" debacle)

    What the hell is a 'Zune'....? (I do even know what it is, the name just doesn't sell it.)

    Also a Million of iPhones? sheesh... that a lot of users.

    Yes... its a LOT.

    I guess it was inevitable with the Jesus Phone Resurrected... in all its Glory! It really is even more remarkable than the first iPhone...

    was just playing with the GPS... its freakin' accurate. It pin-pointed me on a bridge... that isn't so good... until you count that the bridge is a metre across!

    Each and every step is detected. Its really insane!

    So based on that, the iPhone 3G should overtake it sometime around 3pm tomorrow.

    Remember - there are 20 more countries (except Spain. LOL) who also sold the iPhone on the July 11 launch date! So that would obviously help the sales!

    Even if Mac will never penetrate the market of ubiquitous PCs and Micro$oft, their iPhone WILL penetrate the very established market of Nokias, Samsungs, LGs and the likes.
