iPhone scores another goal for Apple

Apple is firing on all cylinders recently. Having just announced that the company has met its self-imposed goal of selling 10 million iPhone and iPhone 3G handsets before the end of the 2008 calendar year, Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) is now the 8th largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world. A new report from ABI Research has the iPhone and iPhone 3G accounting for 1.1% of the global mobile phone market.

Apple had set its sights on moving 10 million iPhones in 2008 and capturing a solid 1% of the global handset market. With this latest market research confirming more than 1% market share for the iPhone platform, it seems Apple has fully satisfied its goals for iPhone sales.

With rumors of a new iPhone coming down Apple’s product pipeline, the iPhone maker is expected to do well in 2009. But, with a booming 2008 behind them and a dwindling global economy continuing to loom overhead, Apple may have to make do with lesser financial numbers in 2009.
