Apple sells 1M 3GS iPhones, top analyst estimates


Apple has reported that they have sold one million iPhone 3GS units ever since they became available Friday, toping analyst estimates of about 500,000 to 700,000 units over opening weekend. Apple is also reporting 3 million download hits of the new iPhone software over the same period of time.

“Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in a statement.

The new generation iPhones sport increased specifications and additional features over the older iPhones at the same price as when they were released. The 16GB 3GS costs an average of about $199, while the 32GB clocks in at $299.
