Red iPhones? What’s next, multi-colored iPods?

5FCBC1B8-FFA3-4535-A5B1-7E368F521990.jpgMacBlogz is reporting that an unconfirmed source has learned about a possible red iPhone to arrive around the holidays. It also may be part of the product (RED), which donates a percentage of profits to help HIV/AIDS in Africa.

I think it would make a great addition to the line up and applaud Apple for using the iPhones popularity to do good!

iPhone 3G, selling twice as fast!

AT&T Says It’s Selling New iPhones Twice As Fast As Old iPhones!

AlleyInsider reports on AT&T’s Q2 financial results. AT&T posted $30.9 billion in revenue, up 4.7% year-over-year.

“AT&T should have a monster Q3 thanks to Apple’s (AAPL) new iPhone 3G, which launched exclusively on AT&T on July 11. AT&T says sales of the new iPhone 3G, after 12 days, and despite short supply, are nearly double the levels at which AT&T sold the first iPhone last summer. No real numbers to support that claim, and no surprise — it’s $400 cheaper — but still a good trend.”

I am curious what it will do for the foreign carriers as well.

Last one is a rotten egg…iPhone 3G-old news dude!

July 23rd 9:58am MARK.

That is the time I FINALLY purchased a black, 16GB iPhone 3G.

I spent 5 days in NYC, checking that damn cube everyday and there never was a line shorter than a 3 hour wait.

So the dilemma – spend hours in line or go see the greatest city in the world?
I chose the latter and had a great time but returned home iPhone 3G free.
Until today, after checking the availability of Apple stores close to me and finally seeing an opportunity, I pounced. A week and five days later……but I pounced!

Even now, after days of selling these little guys the Apple employees acted like it was their first day. Very unorganized and taking WAY to long with each customer. Will they EVER learn?

So my first impressions are like the countless others who have reported on this for way too many days:
Yellow screen-check, trouble syncing-check, old case doesn’t fit-check, old dock doesn’t fit-check…..tell me again why I bought this thing????

More news on Steve Jobs health

According to The New York Times – Steve Jobs did have surgery earlier this year but reassured several people he is doing well and cancer free – The New York Times is reporting:

“Rumors of Steven P. Jobs’s ill health have been greatly exaggerated.

That is what Mr. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, has been telling a number of his associates, even as concerns about his health have weighed on the company’s stock price.

The latest flurry of talk was set off on Monday when, in a conference call after the release of Apple’s earnings, a company executive responded to a question about Mr. Jobs’s condition by saying that it was “a private matter.”

But in recent weeks, Mr. Jobs has reassured several people that he is doing well and that four years after a successful operation to treat a rare form of pancreatic cancer, he is cancer free.”
