Atlanta Stores have done a good job keeping stock of all models.

That being said, one could say it costs them $175.99 to make each 8gig iphone. Thefore. They're probably making close to 24 maybe 26 on each 16 gig. Either way, if we say they all make 24$ profits, at least one million yields 24 million.
175.99 million to make one million iphones... but that's already figured in (or out I guess) of my calculations in my other post.
And it just occurred to me... its more than that... we forgot all about Mobile Me. It was selling like Candy @ my Apple Store. One guy seriously turned to me and asked if they were free because every person bought it. Nice sales pitching team Apple, haha.iPhone 3G 16GB - Black.
Screw the crAppStore I want Installer!

ok that makes me and my old iPhone like DUMB.
every other guy is going to have it due to its low price. Maybe this is the stage when the whole human race develops or evolves into a new stage with facilities which are not limited to only a few lot.
Oh great. Whatever thats supposed to mean.

10,000,000 * 4/5 = 8,000,000
8,000,000 * 0.99 = 7,920,000
7,920,000 * 30% = 2,376,000
But you also have to consider that in all likelihood the free apps made up a much higher percentage of downloads precisely because they are free.
It was probably more like 80% of the downloads were one of the free apps.
If thatís the case, and the average price for the apps that people actually paid something for is $0.99 then they still made over half a million on apps alone (my math is below).
10,000,000 * 1/5 (or 20%) = 2,000,000
2,000,000 * 0.99 = 1,980,000
1,980,000 * 30% = 594,000
Still, not bad for pure profit though ;]
In addition, there are rumors that apple is getting $325 from AT&T for each iPhone sold and estimates that the new phone only costs $173 to manufacture.
That would mean that apple made ~$152 Million on the phones alone.
Of course thatís not pure profit because the $173 per phone is only the Bill of Materials and does not take into account shipping, employee salaries, advertising/marketing, cost of storefronts, ect.
So the $24 per phone is probably a more accurate estimate of pure profit for the hardware.
