Since its first worldwide launch last July 11, a total of 120,000 iPhone 3Gs have been sold by T-Mobile, with 75,000 handsets being sold in Germany alone. Not bad for a handset that’s launched for the first time with the said carrier.
Whether that translates to 120,000 happy customers or not, as there have been many reports of iPhone 3G network reception problems, the fact is that Apple is gaining ground in the overly crowded mobile phone business fast.
If not for the myriad of glitches experienced by the carriers during launch, since the last two releases were done simultaneously in different counties worldwide, there might have been more iPhone 3G handsets sold. We’re only now entering the third quarter of 2008, so it looks like Apple has a chance at hitting the 10M handset point after all.
