In the market for an iPhone? Here's a breakdown of all the currently shipping iPhones from Apple.
App Store Success Reportedly Overwhelms Even Apple's Expectations
Already, the app eruption has superseded all the sober predictions of Apple executives and outside champions like Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the venture capital firm that created the first investment fund aimed solely at backing iPhone app developers.
"We had no idea there would be 2bn downloads by October," says Kleiner Perkins partner Matt Murphy, manager of the then $100m fund. "Most people within Apple, if you had told them it would be a fifth of that by now, they would have been pretty happy."
He argued that the iPhone was a computer, not a phone, and that consumers expected to be able to do many things with computers.
History had shown that this kind of freedom was what drove the more profitable "ecosystems" of computers - where sales of hardware were dependent on a wide variety of useable software.
