3 million iPhones by the end of the year

It sounds crazy, but it’s certainly within the realm of possibility. UBS Research Analysts are predicting that 3 million iPhones will sell by December 31st, 2007. With 1 million already out of the gate, the firm is predicting that Apple will push 2 million units during Q4 of this year. Given the recent price cuts and general iPhone mania, we’re completely confident that this number is within Apple’s grasp. The question, however, is whether the recent release of the iPod Touch will do anything to slow down or cannibalize iPhone sales. The two products retain enough unique draw and characteristics that it shouldn’t be too much of a problem, but we’ll be pretty interested to see how the iPhone fares during the month of October. Stay tuned, folks. One final note. For anyone who thought that AT&T might be getting the short end of the stick, think again. UBS is predicting another 3.8 million new subscribers by the end of the year.
