IMO, your 35 Million by christmas 2008 criteria is too soon. PSP, who was released on March 2005, haven't even reach 35 Million worldwide by now (only 26 Million by end of Nov 07).
PSP might not be a good benchmark, you might say. In that case, let's take NDS, which I am sure everyone agree will crack 100 Million WW.
Released on US on Nov 04, by Christmas 2006 (2 years after launch), it managed to sell only 9 million in US, 14 Million in Japan (no idea about Europe figure). For DS to reach your 35 Million in 2 years, it need to sell 12 Million in Europe, which I believe was not achieved (since Europe was roughly the same or lower than US, much lower than Japan).
If you say 25-30 Million in 2 years, I think it is a more realistic (and achievable) goal. Even PS2 only achieved 15.7 Million (US) + 7 Million (Japan, up to March 2002) = 22.7 Million (no idea about Europe figure) in its first 2 years since launch.
