It’s quite close! They sold nearly 136 million iPhones last year – http://www.statista.com/statistics/12743/worldwide-apple-iphone-sales-since-3rd-quarter-2007/
and the estimated number of births this year will be just over 131 million – http://www.wholesomewords.org/missions/greatc.html

However, people last three score years and ten whereas iPhones will be lucky to do the ten 🙂

Yes, 🙂

Though actually, given that Samsung sell more Android phones than Apple do iPhones, the overall number of smartphones per head of population must be rising very fast…

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
