Apple: ‘One million 3G iPhones sold in first weekend'

Apple today claimed that it sold its one millionth 3G iPhone on Sunday, three days after the device was launched.

The latest incarnation of the iPhone was released last Friday to 21 countries around the world, with stock shortages reported in the UK, Spain and Canada.

Apple boss Steve Jobs said: ‘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.’

The launch of the device in the UK has been beset by problems, with issues affecting bothApple’s iTunesandO2’s registration system.

Apple also announced today that 10m applications had been downloaded from its iPhone App Store over the weekend.

800 applications are now available on the App Store, with 200 offered for free.

Jobs added: ‘Developers have created some extraordinary applications, and the App Store can wirelessly deliver them to every iPhone and iPod touch user instantly.’
