Jul 1st 2010 5:02AM My predictions: This app will be number one on the App Store for a few weeks. This will prompt some pundits to claim that iPhone users are desperate for choice and Apple is making a huge mistake etc. In the review section of the app, some reviewers will say that it's faster than Safari.

This is Firefox branding and functionality wrapped around Apple's rendering engine. There will be no issues with approval.

Apple have allowed rival browsers since July 2008, as long as they use WebKit as their rendering engine. No different with Firefox Home. Opera Mini is a special case as it renders on Opera's servers, not on the device.

When you say that browser should get a free pass do you realize that Internet Explorer was responsible for the vast majority of the billion Dollar virus damages thw world has suffered over the last 15 years? If there's anything Apple should have a close lit on it's browsers.

Of course they'll allow it, there are already dozens of WebKit based browsers on the AppStore, and with Firefox Home, Mozilla is releasing their first WebKit browser. Great move to admit that Gecko isn't ready for smartphones yet.

Suppose what you're saying is true. Wouldn't that mean the beginning of the end of real computers? You should brace for impact.

Which is true, because they won't report about the 48 million sometime in 2012...
This 3 million mark is significant because the selling speed is increasing, even though we are not in the launch hype anymore.
28 days for the 1st million
31 days for the 2nd million
20 days for the 3rd million
This is clearly not launch demand, this is sustained demand, and it's only going to increase as, during the 3rd quarter, Apple adds more retailers (still not on Amazon...) and more countries (only in 10 countries so far).
At a current run rate of 4,5 million per quarter, iPad is already outselling Mac and iPod Touch (and XBox and the Droid...) and is now setting its sights on iPhone, Blackberry, the whole Android camp and Netbooks which are each going to sell selling about 10-15 million next quarter.

It's also wrong. A lunar month is 1 day shorter than a solar month.
