iPhone and iPad by the numbers


I don't care if you love or hate Apple/iPhone. You cannot be anything but impressed by these numbers. They are staggering and game changing. Kudos to Apple.

The best number is the one Jobs is the most proud of: 1 billion USD paid to App Store developers. That's a good number in 2 years. Hope the number doubles by next year. Who knows how much ad money there has been.
Another nice number for Apple to have is something like 2 iphones sold every second and 1 iPad sold every second. ;) Hopefully that'll be true in Q4.
