Apple proudly announced they've sold one million iPhone 3Gs just three days after its launch:
Apple today announced it sold its one millionth iPhone 3G on Sunday, just three days after its launch on Friday, July 11. iPhone 3G is now available in 21 countries -- Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US -- and will go on sale in France on July 17.

"iPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "It took 74 days to sell the first one million original iPhones, so the new iPhone 3G is clearly off to a great start around the world."
Apple also announced that iPhone and iPod touch users have already downloaded more than 10 million applications from the iPhone App Store since its launch late last week. The App Store already features 800 native applications, more than 200 are freeware and more than 90 percent cost less than $10.
