Apple: 1 million iPhones sold

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.

You have to love the folks who complained about the iPhone's price cut. The 4GB model wasn't selling as well as Apple would have liked, so they reacted to the market, made a bold decision to cut the 4GB model and make some money by increasing the sales volume of the 8GB. And the early adopters freaked.

You have to commend Apple on their response, but they didn't have to do anything.
