The one major bit out of AT&T's quarterly earnings call is that the iPhone 3G is selling twice as fast as the original iPhone did last summer-in case the unending squiggles of people trailing out of Apple Stores and AT&T shops didn't tip you off. They didn't actually say how many were sold, but we know that worldwide Apple sold a million of them as of nine days ago, just three days after launch. Of course, the hot $199 price-undoubtedly responsible for the phone's brief life on shelves-means AT&T won't actually make money off of it until 2010. You know, when we're on our fourth-gen iPhone.
