Claro, mucho de esto tiene que ver con el hecho de que el iPhone es vendido en alrededor de 20 países.
Además, en el mismo fin de semana fueron bajadas 10 MILLONES de apps.
Despite widespread activation problems, Apple said Monday that it sold its one millionth iPhone 3G on Sunday, just three days after the new handset launched worldwide on Friday, July 11..
“iPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend,” said Apple chief executive Steve Jobs.
Last year, Apple managed to sell just 270,000 iPhones during the first two days. Although the Cupertino-based electronics maker did not release a three day tally for first-generation iPhone sales, it would take the company nearly two and a half months to sell its one millionth unit.
“It took 74 days to sell the first one million original iPhones, so the new iPhone 3G is clearly off to a great start around the world,” Jobs added.
Unlike last year when opening weekend iPhone sales took place exclusively in the United States, this year’s roll-out was helped by simultaneous launches in 20 addition countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.
The three day sales total is sure to send a shiver down the spines of rival handset makers and is particularly impressive given widespread activation issuesthat plagued the launch from the get-go, at times slowing sales and activations to a snail’s pace.
