Apple says it sold its one millionth iPhone 3G on Sunday, just three days after the latest version of the Jesus phone launched on Friday.
“iPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “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.”
iPhone 3G is now available in 21 countries—Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US – and will go on sale in France on July 17.
The new iPhone 3G combines all the regular features of iPhone, plus 3G networking that is twice as fast (based on 3G and EDGE testing – actual speeds vary by site conditions); built-in GPS for expanded location-based mobile services; and iPhone 2.0 software which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs over 800 third party applications available through the new App Store.
