Slideshow: A Picture Is Worth 1M iPhones
Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) said today that it has already moved 1 million 3G phones in the first three days that the new gizmos have been on sale.
The 3G iPhone beat its EDGE precedessor's initial sales in part because the handset went on sale in 21 countries 'round the world rather than simply launching with AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) in the U.S. like the original. Still, Unstrung's 3G iPhone slideshow should give some idea of how Apple sold that many. We've got shots from all around the U.S. of people lining up to be the first to get their hot little mitts on the iPhone. Some waited more than three hours. (See Top 5 3G iPhone Launch Moments.)
Wonder how many of these people were disappointed to find they couldn't activate their new iPhones when they got them home? (See iPhone Customers May Wait 'Til Xmas. )
