Apple has told analysts that it expects to sell most iPhone units through its own chain of fancy stores the world over as consumers flock to the Apple Stores to see the iPhone demonstrated in person.
The iPhone will be sold via the Apple Stores, Apple’s online store and Cingular stores when it launches. Apple is expecting revenue of around $30 million per store over the year with the launch of the iPhone ; aiming to achieve similar per-store sales as retailers such as Best Buy, despite having one tenth the floor space.
The company has also thrown a bone out by saying that it will be concentrating on its Mac, iPod, iPhone and Apple TV business for another while yet before considering moving into another product category. So, no iFridge then... Ohh well.
