Apple sells one million iPhone 3G in first weekend
Apple has sold its one millionth iPhone 3G on Sunday, three days after its launch on Friday, 11th July. iPhone 3G is now available in 21 countries, including 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, going on sale in France on 17th July.

“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.”

The new iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone plus 3G mobile networking, built-in GPS for expanded location-based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs over 800 third party applications available through the new App Store.

iPhone and iPod touch users have already downloaded more than 10 million applications from its new App Store since its launch late last week. Developers have created mobile applications ranging from games to location-based social networking to medical applications to enterprise productivity tools.

Users can wirelessly download applications directly onto their iPhone or iPod touch and start using them immediately. More than 800 native applications are now available on the App Store, with more than 200 offered for free and more than 90 percent priced at less than $10.

The App Store on iPhone works over cellular networks and Wi-Fi, so users can purchase and download applications wirelessly and start using them instantly. Applications are free or charged to the user’s iTunes account and the App Store notifies the user when updates are available for their apps.
