    Default iPhone hits a sales record again!!
    As news has been crossing the Internet on Apple CEO Steve Jobs' liver transplant, the new iPhone 3GS has been released and sales for the handset are booming.

    According to news posted on various websites, including MacDailyNews figures for the first three days of sales have reached an astonishing one million units. In addition to this, the new 3.0 version of the iPhone software has been downloaded over six million times, just five days since its release.

    Initial forecasts by Wall Street analysts, as to initial sales numbers, were estimated to hit only 500,000 units, however this number was since re-evaluated to 750,000 by Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster according to early sales indications, comments from carriers, and lines at retail stores being "more positive" than he had anticipated.

    When the first iPhone was released in 2007, it took Apple 74 days to achieve one million units sold, this drastic shortening in sales temporally shows just how popular Apple is in terms of its iPhone.

    Steve Jobs commented on this telling the press: "Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning, with over 50,000 applications available from Apple's revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever."

    Well the iPhone being released in over 70 countries helps. You can't really compare the initial launch to this year. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

    Yeah 74 days on the first-gen was US sales figures only.

    But thats still amazing regardless....1 million units in 3 days, Apple's got a good plan going.

    Didn't you mean it is like comparing apples to microsofts?!
