iPhone 3G: Thou Shalt Covet

The long-anticipated 3G version of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone is still well over a week away from market, but already its promise of speedier data services, rich mobile-application platform and drastically lower retail price is driving early adopters mad with desire.

Indeed, a new survey of 3,600 RBC Technology Adoption Panel members showed that 56% of those planning to purchase a smart phone in the next 3 months will buy an iPhone 3G. That’s more than double the 23% that plans to buy a BlackBerry. And it’s nearly 19 times the number that plans to buy a device from the much-diminished Palm. This sort of pent-up demand is unprecedented, notes RBC analyst Mike Abramsky, who expects Apple to ship 14 million iPhones in 2008 and 24 million in 2009.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
