Apple iPhone 4 sales: more than 1.7 million in the first week-end
Last week, when talking about the problems that the new iPhone has, I said I was sure that Apple would announce record sales after only few days of iPhone 4 availability. And it sure did: the Cupertino company says it sold more than 1.7 million iPhone 4s in three days (the first week-end of availability).
Steve Jobs declared that “this is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history”, which probably also means the iPhone is, at the moment, Apple’s most profitable product.
The 1.7 million iPhone 4s sold over the week-end are only black units, since the white version of the smartphone has been delayed until July.
At the moment, the iPhone 4 is available only in the US, the UK, Germany, France and Japan. By the end of July, Apple will launch it in other 18 markets around the world, including Canada, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Ireland, Spain, Switzerland, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
iPhone 4 sales will continue to grow quickly, although this year, in the US, there will probably be less customers to flock to AT&T for the iPhone (thanks to Samsung’s, HTC’s and Motorola’s newest smartphones – which all run on Google’s Android).
