As Apple has rolled out a list of impressive new features for the iPhone operating system (OS), one important detail has been giving only minor coverage.
According to CNet, there are now 17 Million iPhones out there…and 13.7 Million of those were sold in 2008. Um…wow. So, despite a struggling economy, people will find enough money to buy products that are really, really good. Or, in the words of Steve Jobs “insanely great.”
iPhone OS 3.0 great news for marketers & publishers, since iPhones (really just mini computers) are perfect for multimedia communications. Better applications make it easier for people to consume media of their choice. If they want news, they’ve got it. If they want video, it’s all there. And, if they actually want product information, it’s there too.
The iPhone continues to grow as a business and personal device.
Insanely great? An understatement.
