Quite a poignant announcement, not because of the content, but because of the messenger. Apple’s money making iPhone franchise has now sold over 1 million iPhone 3G S devices, announced the company today.

Just three days into the iPhone 3GS rat race, Steve Jobs himself - back from a life-threatening health problem - has come forward to announce the record sales and Palm Pre-squashing factoid that the iconic Apple device is an overwhelmingly sales hit.

“Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning,” said Jobs, “With over 50,000 applications available from Apple’s revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever.”

The iPhone 3GS starts at $199 for the 16GB version and $299 for the 32GB or even the original iPhone 3G for just $99, but AT&T will own you for two years.

Apple stock should shoot skywards on the announcement today and tomorrow, as the fact that Jobs is back dawns on investors and consumers alike…

That's unpossible.

I distinctly recall Steve Ballmer saying "There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance."

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
