Apple sold a few hundred thousand iPhones in the first few days. Pshaw. That's nothing. Now, only 74 days into the life of the device, it's reached a number many cell phones never reach - one million sold.
“One million iPhones in 74 days—it took almost two years to achieve
this milestone with iPod,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We can’t wait
to get this revolutionary product into the hands of even more customers
this holiday season.”
The price drop, although it raised the hackles of many early adopters (until Steve stepped in with a rebate) will only increase the sales figures for this phone. Will the upcoming holiday season bring a big present for Apple and its shareholders? We'll see.
