6.9 Million iPhone 3Gs sold until now, Apple says

So Apple’s financial results for the fiscal 2008 fourth quarter are out. Said quarter ended on September 27, leaving the Cupertino company with a revenue of $7.9 billion and a huge net profit of $1.14 billion.

An important part of this profit was made thanks to the iPhone 3G, which went on sale starting July this year. Apple reports that, worldwide, there were 6,892,000 iPhone 3Gs sold until September 27. That’s more than the total number of first generation iPhones, which were sold in 6.1 million units in a whole year.     

The high iPhone 3G sales allowed Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, to pick on Research In Motion, the manufacturer of BlackBerry handsets, by saying:

We sold more phones than RIM.

OK, and? That doesn’t make RIM’s devices “inferior”. Needless to say, their touchscreen BlackBerry Storm is not released yet. And when it will be, it might steal lots of possible iPhone 3G buyers.   


Anyway, apart from iPhones, Apple has also reported excellent Mac and iPod sales. 2,611,000 Macintosh computers were shipped during the last quarter, while 11,052,000 iPod sales were registered.
