iPhone Surpasses 1,000,000 units

This really has nothing to do with gaming but it is interesting news. Today marked a huge milestone for Apple's iPhone. The iPhone has surpassed one million units today. This is just in the U.S alone because that is the only place you can buy it in for now. The iPhone is rumored to come out in Eruope this November with 3G, 16GB of storage and under T-Moble's service for around €499 ($700 in U.S dollars.) In the U.S the iPhone is $399 for 8GB and 4GB for $299 (while supplies last because the 4GB iPhone has been discontinued.) Also on September 28 the new iPod Touch will be in stores. It will bring some of the best apps on iPhone like Safari, Youtube, and of course the photo and ipod apps that have been on iPhone. It will also have an iTunes wi-fi music store where you will be able to preview and buy music on the iPod and when you sync your iPod to your computer, all of the songs you purchased will be copied to your iTunes library. The new iPod touch will cost for 8GB $299 and for 16GB, $399. But this month will be huge for iPhone owners. This week custom ringtones will be coming to iTunes so you can make and purchase ringtones for the iPhone. Also if you are one of the early buyers of the iPhone like myself, Apple is giving anyone who bought the iPhone more than 14 days ago will recieve $100 credit toward anything in the Apple retail store or Apple's online store. Details will go out sometime this week. Finally at the end of the month, Apple will release a firmware upgrade for iPhone adding the iTunes Wi-Fi music store which as I mentioned above is also appearing on the iPod Touch. I have owned my iPhone for about two months and since I got it I have not been able to put it down. It is an incredible device and does everything it promised to do. If you ever get the chance to get one or try it out do so. You will be amazed by it and will not want to put it down. However, if you do not want to pay phone bills I would highly recomend the iPod Touch.
