Will it Flop or Fly?

Cell phones are rude instruments always demanding your attention and affecting the way you drive. Considered a "communicator," combining the technology of a cell phone, Ipod, and WiFi capable computer for surfing the internet, the Apple iPhone has some mobile phone corporations shaking in their shoes...

On June 29th the Apple Corporation will have 3 million iPhones ready for sale at an introductory price of $499 (in addition to monthly phone charges). They are betting the new iPhone is going to be a hit. Only time will tell:
...the iPhone has the potential for adding a totally new, $10 billion-a-year business within just a few years. If Apple can expand so-called smartphones from a luxury carried by corporate road warriors into an everyday tool for the masses—combining the functions of a BlackBerry and an iPod—Apple could soon see a new growth tear.

Er, I think he meant to write, "tier."
