1 millionth iPhone sold
At the seventy fourth day after the iPhone’s launch, Apple has sold 1 million units. In a press release, Steve Jobs said that it took nearly two years to sell that many iPods. The big boss continued: “We can’t wait to get this revolutionary product into the hands of even more customers this holiday season.” Regardless of the quirks and complaints. The figures don’t lie. People love the iPhone and with the recent price drop?despite all the commotion about refunds?sales are expected to soar even more. I commend Apple for the achievement.
