“Tim Cook on the 55 million iPads sold to date: ‘This 55 is something no one would have guessed. Including us. To put it in context, it took us 22 years to sell 55 million Macs. It took us about 5 years to sell 22 million iPods, and it took us about 3 years to sell that many iPhones. And so, this thing is, as you said, it’s on a trajectory that’s off the charts.’” Horace Deidu reports for Asymco.

“That gave me an idea,” Deidu reports. “The iOS platform as a whole reached 316 million cumulative units at the end of last year. The iOS platform overtook the OS X platform in under four years and more iOS devices were sold in 2011 (156 million) than all the Macs ever sold (122 million).”

I therefore propose that the iPod, iPhone & iPad Forum be moved to the top of the Hardware Forum list, elevated way above those lesser Apple Hardware, the Mac Desktop and Mac Notebook Forums.

Screw that. Stunning numbers though.

You forgot to suggest chaning the name of the site to iOSNN.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Brilliant idea!

Perhaps we'd get more traffic in the forums?
