Apple Sells 1 Million iPhone 3GS’s In 3 Days; A Revolution In Web Video Is Coming

Apple today announced that it sold over one million iPhone 3GS models through Sunday, June 21, the third day after its launch.

“Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “With over 50,000 applications available from Apple’s revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever.”

The new iPhone 3GS features improved speed and performance, longer battery life, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, hands-free voice control and easy to use video recording.

That last feature promises to be huge.

The inexpensive Flip video camera came from nowhere to become a hit, because it made it easy to shoot video, import it to your computer and post it to the Web.

The iPhone 3GS eliminates the step of importing video to your computer, letting you shoot video and directly post it to YouTube. Other phones have done this before – but the iPhone 3GS is going to do it on a massive scale.

The iPhone 3GS is a revolution in Web video.

It may take a year for it to really hit us, but it’s a revolution.

There are a million people out there already that are ready to shoot a video and publish it to the world almost instantly. This makes video blogging as trivial as Twitter made microblogging.

How will this change user generated media? How will this change journalism?

    So? I already do this with my Blackberry, posting to a web site, Twitter, Zannel and Facebook all at once. Don’t try to tell me that I need an iPhone to do things I’ve done for a long time.

    Dude needs to learn how to actually read the article before commenting.

    And what did I miss? The part about the massive scale? Sorry, that’s not necessarily the truth. The phone doesn’t do those things UNLESS the users use it to do so. Saying it doesn’t make it so. More iPhone hype.
