Apple Sold Over 1 Million iPhone 3GS Smartphones Over the Weekend
Apple's customers have wasted no time scooping up its latest smartphone and operating system update. More than 1 million iPhone 3G S smartphones have sold in the three days since the new model hit the stores Friday, Apple announced Monday. In addition, 6 million people have downloaded the new iPhone OS 3.0 update in the five days since its release.
The 1 million mark outpaces the estimate of at least one analyst, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, who predicted that 500,000 3G S phones would sell in the first weekend. The original iPhone sold about 270,000 units over its first weekend in June 2007, while the iPhone 3G sold around 1 million when it launched in July 2008. (And while Apple sold the iPhone 3G in 21 countries in its first day last year, the 3G S was available in only eight countries at launch.)
wow 1 million over the weekend. Thats crazy...
It's pretty incredible when you think about that many phones. I guess people like them and when a new model is available they buy them. I wonder if the pre-order option helped this time?
