One Billion iPhone App Store Downloads Milestone Has Been Passed

Congratulations Apple!

This is a major milestone for an outstanding iconic Platform; from a company that always gives 100%... Apple... if they go into a market... they go into win!

Since the iPhone was ‘born', we have seen many OS updates and two variants of the iPhone hardware... as well as a lot of consumer excitement, which is eventually coming to the Enterprise Mobility world.

What can't be forgotten is that without the iPhone developers of this world, this would not have been possible. There are 35,000 applications on the App Store and each and every iPhone developer, that has either a free or chargeable application, should take a part of this celebration. We now look forward to the GA release of the iPhone 3.0 OS and the possibility of new enhanced hardware.

Well done everyone.
