Blackfriars' Marketing: iPhone sales prove Steve Ballmer wrong and suggest unprecedented dominance

Blackfriars' Marketing: iPhone sales prove Steve Ballmer wrong and suggest unprecedented dominance: "iPhone sales prove Steve Ballmer wrong and suggest unprecedented dominance iSuppli notes today that the iPhone outsold all other smartphones in July, outpacing the entire Blackberry series, the entire Palm series, and any individual smartphone model from Samsung, Nokia, or Motorola.

Helge: iPhone is a serious challenge. What happens in Europe?

So much for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's claim that 'There's no chance the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.' If the iPhone has no chance of any significant market share, where does that leave Windows Mobile phones, given that a single model of iPhone just outsold them?

Helge: Windows Mobile, nobody talks about them.

Now iSuppli quote does not directly make the comparison between iPhone sales and all Windows Mobile sales (although one can draw that conclusion, based upon the fact that Windows Mobile sales overall are smaller than Blackberry sales overall).

Helge: Windows Mobile sales is smaller than Blackberry.

But they did say the following: 'While iSuppli has not collected historical information on this topic, it's likely that the speed of the iPhone's rise to competitive dominance in its segment is unprecedented in the history of the mobile-handset market,' iSuppli said.

Helge: This is a great story.

Anyone who has been discounting Apple's entry into the cell phone market as not important might want to re-evaluate their position."
