While the iPhone has been hyped by the digerati and blogosphere, recently the actual sales numbers didn't quite live up to expectations. Only 146,000 phones were activated on June 29 & 30.
Of course, this may have had more to do with crappy customer service from AT&T - excuse me, at&t - but it reflects on Apple's poor choice of carrier. But the bottom line is, fewer phones were online than expected.
Why? I think it may have something to do with the tech-savvy folks who are waiting for the second generation of iPhones. They're waiting to see if there are any bugs to be worked out, if Apple adds Flash support, a speedier network, a better battery, etc. Can't say that I blame them. I know a former member of the executive team at Apple and he said the same thing. It's helpful having an inside line on goings-on at Apple.
