Yes you read the right. The iPhone is the fastest growing consumer electronic product in history. TechCrunch states:

Its adoption ramp is even steeper than videogame consoles including the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and Sony PSP. The original iPod and Blackberry aren’t even in the same league.

If you’re in the US and have AT&T as your iPhone provider, you may frequently hear complaints about the speed of the AT&T data network, well that’s because it is 50x – FIFTY times! more than it was 3 years ago Wow again. I included two charts from TechCrunch that really show the explosiveness of the iPhone growth and it’s strain on the AT&T network, I’m just blown away by this.

    This is impossible. there is no way the iPhone grow faster than TV or radio

    Of course it is possible. Nobody could afford a TV at the beginning.

    I bet it was the same for radio. And don’t forget when the iPhone/iPod were launched : you can’t even compare today’s advertising with the 1930′s one !
