It's looking more likely, but still far from a lock.
The 1 million seems to be very roughly:
450K first weekend pop
300K 3G weekend pop
10K/day other days
Let's say there's another 1-million pop from international releases. And
the daily background rate rises generously straight-line to 30K/day.
Then over the next 14 months through June 2011 there will total sales of:
1 million so far
1 million pop from May 2010 int'l launches
+14mon*30day+20K/day = 8.4 million on usual days
10.4 million through June 2011
Even throwing in a 2nd-generation pop in early 2011 (WiMAX! Video! USB
ports! PixelQi screen!) of 2 million more doesn't reach 13 million.
