  • Over a Million iPhone 3GS' Sold, 6 Million OS 3.0 Downloads Served
    Apple's latest press release reveals the sales numbers for the iPhone 3GS the last three days - and they're pretty good. In fact, it seems that they've beaten last year's sales record.



    Apple claims to have sold "over" one million iPhone 3GSs - no wonder the activation servers were being hit THAT hard! This is a huge milestone for Apple, not just because it has proved the claims of all the Big Daddy Analysts wrong - who expected only about 500k units to be sold - but they've also beaten any speculation made by most of the media who were worried about the minimal changes in design.

    Also announced was the download numbers for the OS 3.0 which was no small achievement. Due to the 100+ great new features, there were no doubts that it would be downloaded with huge excitement - but 6 million downloads in just around 5 days is a huge percentage of the total iPhone owners.

    Another exciting thing about the press release was a quote by Apple's Super C.E.O Steve Jobs which has ensured his return and a much more active role in Apple's day-to-day business.

    “Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “With over 50,000 applications available from Apple’s revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever."

    P.S. Palm sold just over 50k Pres in this much time.

      An EXCELLENT point. HE gets it. Free markets determine who or what becomes an "iPhone killer" or any OTHER "killer" or financial success, not polls, or opinions, or editorials.

      Yea, I remember the iPhone being pretty exclusive as well, but I also remember when AT&T was the only company with a razr and it cost $600. How many people brag abotu the new Razr nowadays??

      So, who knows what the future holds for iPhone. It seems like Apple has done a good job of "reinventing" the iPhone every year, so that its Fresh. I've some of the smartest people I know extend their contracts 2 years for a phone that in 1 year would only be worth #100, because they gelt that the iPhone is crack and they must have it...

      Its a shame though. This is why apple held off on the features that come standard on every phone. Because they know that now people are going to be taht much motivated to get a phone to get the features, not the phone. I have a 1Gen and even if I upgrade I'm hearing I cant get SMS. I cant tether? Its like I'm leasing a phone. WTF, are you serious? Hopefully hacks come out so that people can use 3.0 features the same way like you can get Emoji icons

      i love 3.0 and noticed the bugs too, I love landscape text and the ability to sign into youtube and rent movies on itunes. It kinda makes the iphone stand alone as a super computer.

      Funny how all those people were saying that nobody would be buying the 3GS due to it not being much different than the 3G. Guess it is different enough!

      Those are pretty sweet numbers. Too bad AT&T is holding me back for a couple of months or I could add another user to the statistic.

      Great numbers. It doesn't matter how many people have iPhones. What matters is the person using it. I know a lot people that still don't know things it can really do. If we want AT&T to change and make service better (ie. MMS etc) lets keep making petitions. We the People... :-)

      yeah, same with me. i was the only kid in my school who had an iphone when the original one came out, but now with the price being so low, everybody's got one. while im impressed with apples sales, i dont really like it. its nothing special or rare to have an iphone anymore.

      Man if this is a super computer, I'd hate to see a PC..

      We who own an iPhone ?G are all sheep. And really well trained sheep, if we owned more than one (myself included).

      I bet we will see another Bush in the White House at the rate we are going. We just don't learn.

      yeah the AP App has push and so does half a dozen others. but that doesn't mean its WORKING. beejive is reporting the longest wait they've ever had for approval on an update on their blog (apparently, cuz i didn't see it, but thats what someone else said). and seriously, even if you give apple the benefit of the doubt on that one, what about the aim app that already went through beta and worked well (from what i understand)? apple is holding back the floodgates on the high volume push apps cuz they know the system isn't ready yet. wtf apple. being a year late on this one wasn't enough? oh well then maybe you should have just let us have backgrounding and worry about our own battery life like big boys and girls. douche bags. which does beg the question of when backgrounder.app will update for 3.0...

      All a cell owner needs is great reception, good internet, mms, and a badass camera. And on top of everything else the ability to customize and play music.

      over 6 million people are getting screwed if you ask me. For as much as I like the so called "new features" Apple will continue to hold back on new technology and they will also continue to fight with the jailbreak community, so what's the point.
