    re: iPhone

    The iPhone was also available for 12 months of this last year, where the G1 was only available to the public for about 3 or 4 months. That’s 3-4 times longer. While you probably can’t take that as a linear relationship, it could imply that the established iPhone only outsold the fledgling G1 by a 2:1 ratio during the months that they were both available. That doesn’t sound bad, IMO.
