Apple Sells 1.7M iPhones, Could Sell More
Page 1 of 1
Apple beat even the most generous of projections for sales of its iPhone 4, and industry analysts say it could have sold more if it had the supply to match demand. But as Enterprise Mobile Today reports, the iPhone 4 is not being hampered by problems with the signal strength, which for now is its most vexing issue.
Oh, to have Apple's problems. The company said it has sold 1.7 million iPhone 4s within three days of its launch -- a blockbuster debut for any new device.
But Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) still apologized for not being able to sell more. Company CEO Steve Jobs on Monday proclaimed that the iPhone 4 has been the company's most successful product launch to date, well exceeding the one million units sold of the two previous models-- the 3G in 2008 and the 3GS in 2009 -- during their first three days of sales.
