iPhone: The exponential growth continues

As our eyes and ears are honed in on Steve Jobs' June 8 announcement at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference where the next iPhone will be introduced, I couldn't help but think that adoption of this incredible device is really on a tear.

Sitting in the US Airways departure lounge at an airport recently, virtually everyone had an iPhone. I couldn't believe it.

Yesterday, a friend of mine in the graphic arts commiserated that "now everybody has one," and that he resented it becoming mainstream, losing that special cachet it originally had.

And now in today's AppleInsider, Daniel Eran Dilger reports that 40% of iPhones are being sold to business users.

AT+T's chief executive of its Business Solutions division, Ron Spears, last week said that the world of business is now viewing the iPhone as "secure, powerful and even a potential replacement for the laptop computer."

Such is the power of innovative thinking, intuitive usability and great design. Who said no one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public?

Happy Memorial Day weekend.
