With a million sold in a weekend, the 3G Apple iPhone is selling at a much faster rate than the original iPhone which took 74 days to hit the magic million mark.
However, while the first iPhone launched in the US first and was later rolloed out around the world, the 3G iPhone is 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, UK and the US. It will go on sale in France on July 17.
Apple has also announced that users have already downloaded more than 10 million applications from the new App store which launched at the end of last week. The App Store features over 800 native applications and can be accessed by iPhone users or iPod Touch users who download a software update for £5.99.
