On the back of Apple’s best quarter ever, with sales of 7.4 million iPhone units, comes the not surprising news that the iPhone enjoys 30% of (some) market share in the US. Yes, I know, lies, damned lies and … but anyway, I was at a kind of Workday techie conference recently, at which there were some 24 techies. I reckon about 18 had iPhones. A much higher percentage amongst geeks then. And my better half wants one, it took her about a month of my “there’s an app for that”.

I’ve had an iPhone for a couple of months now. I can honestly say it has changed my life for the (very much) better. It is insanely fantastic. I just don’t see anyone catching it anytime soon. That sentiment seems to be increasingly shared. Android may be a match eventually, but it will probably be at least another 12 months. Palm webOS? Forget it. Interesting that Nokia don’t seem to have a clue what to do about this market. Of course they should back Android and really push it, but they seem content to do nothing. Echos of Microsoft missing the web. Quite frankly, I think I’m becoming a serious Apple fanboy … I want a Mac.
