    good marketing and shiny things. It's improved over the old iPhone but still not very good overall.. jack of all trades, master of none etc.

    I would have thought that the biggest factor is that the iPhone 3G is available worldwide, whereas the original was available in only a few countries.

    and the fact that iPhone 3G has a lower price, and a more meture system.

    2G is still a fantastic phone, just the orginal price is unacceptable.

    and most of the sales were 2G owners upgrading to the 3G version maybe?

    you could have counted me in that, except the fact that the iphone is tethered to a carrier, that *must* charge a monthly fee turns me right off.

    apparently apple gets a cut of those monthly contracts. kind of disgusting.

    its just a freakin' phone.
