Apple had sold one million iPhones 3G in just three days after its launch on Friday 11 July, with iPhone 3G now available in 21 countries, including Australia.

Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, seemed happy with the results.

“iPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend.

“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,” he said.

The new iPhone 3G combines all the features of iPhone plus 3G 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, which was launched last Friday as well.
