Apple sells one million iPhone 3Gs in three days, 10m App Store downloads


3g_iphone_cha_ching.jpgApple claims to have sold one million iPhone 3Gs over launch weekend, despite problems which plagued its debut in several countries. That’s 25 times faster than the original iPhone, which took 74 days to reach the million mark, albeit in just a few countries rather than the 22 privileged nation to the second incarnation.

Steve Jobs said, “iPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend.” Well, he was hardly going to say it was crap, was he?

Additionally, over ten million applications have been downloaded from the iTunes App Store over the weekend. Currently top of the pile is Sega’s Super Monkey Ball, Apple’s Remote, and the Facebook application. Mercifully, demand for iPint has diminished a little — exasperated O2 users still without network connection are probably reaching for the real thing.
