Apple sells over 1.7 million iPhone 4 units in 3 days
We knew that over 600,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders came through before the device even hit the streets, but with the epically massive lines seen during the iPhone 4 launch, we had to wonder if Apple had topped one million sold. Well, this morning we got news that Apple blew way past one million—the company sold over 1,700,000 iPhone 4s in just the first three days of availability.
“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.”
The 1.7 million number is based on sales in the US, UK, Germany, France, and Japan. iPhone 4 will go on sale in 18 additional counties by the end of July.
