“From everything I’ve heard, Babe Ruth only had one home run, and he kept hitting it over and over.”
--Steve Jobs (when asked if Apple needed to make more variations of the iPhone)
People, he walks the walk so he can talk the talk. Apple is now the 3rd largest phone maker in the world and they've sold over 13,000,000 iPhones. And they are making a lot of money doing so:
"The numbers are stunning. In the quarter ended in September, Apple said iPhone sales represented 39 percent of the company’s $11.6 billion in revenue (adjusted for some accounting technicalities). That means Apple sold $4.5 billion worth of iPhones in the quarter."
Here’s another stunner: Apple’s $4.6 billion in revenue from phones is more than its sales of computers. Analysts expected Apple to sell about $4 billion in Macintosh computers and $1.6 billion in iPods in the quarter."
Don't hate the player, pity the Blackberry.
