God, how desperate can people get for a mere phone.
So what if it’s the new iPhone 4.
Sick, this consumerist affliction for the latest shiny gadget (yours truly included in that list, sadly),
Is it any surprise then that Apple is tooting the horn that it’s sold over 1.7 million of its iPhone 4 through Saturday, June 26.
The iPhone 4 was launched just four days back, on June 24.
Here’s Apple CEO Steve Jobs boasting about the initial success:
This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.
iPhone 4 features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD 720p video recording, Multitasking and Folders.
In our early testing, we’ve found some issues while holding the bottom left portion of phone in our hand.
Last night, the NYT application crashed three times when we did that.
The new phone has been launched in the U.S., UK, France, Germany and Japan.
By the end of July, the new phone is set to debut in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
India, you ask?
Well, let the folks back home string a wire between two empty metal cans and pretend they’re talking on the iPhone 4. 😉
