    How many iPod Touches in the same period?

    So how many iPod touch s have been sold in the same period?

    How Many?..

    70,000 in three months is not impressive

    This includes all the fanboys (girls don't seem to want a jPhone) and the Christmas period.

    Given that the German market is approxiamately 25% of the US market, 250,000 would have been more inline with US sales.

    I know one jPhone own and one person who is thinking of getting one. The Gravis stores (largest Apple dealers) have stopped promoting the contracts. There will have to be a hefty discount to shift the inventory.

    Because the iPod touch can only give you web, email, video etc when it is in range of a wireless hot spot. If it could use the phone as a bluetooth modem then you might have had a point, but it can't and there are large gaps in public WiFi access.
