iPhone, SQLite

Did you notice that Steve Jobs called out SQLite in his announcement about the iPhone 2.0 software?

Now lets say in one year there are 6 million old iPhones plus another 6 or so million new iPhones all running the 2.0 software.

If you toss in all of the other gadgets running SQLite it seems like a pretty big number.

A hundred million installations?

I went and took at look at the SQLite website to see what they think their numbers are.

Looking through the SQLite team's reasoning I suspect they are low balling the number they are publishing

Lets shoot for a billion installations. Most likely anyone who is reading this already has several applications running on their computer using it.

Pretty good numbers for an open source database.
