Apple Apple has issued a statement in which is said it has sold over 1 million iPhones during the first three days of the device being on sale. "Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning," said Steve Jobs, "With over 50,000 applications available from Apple's revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever." In addition, version 3.0 of the iPhone has been downloaded 6 million times. This also happens to be the first careful official word from Jobs since he took medical leave earlier this year.

RE[2]: So what?

I would be interested in seeing a breakdown of how many phones went to existing iPhone customers, versus bringing in new customers.

Based on a survey by Piper Jaffray of 256 early iPhone 3G S adopters shopping for their new handsets at Apple retail stores in New York and Minnesota, "(...) Approximately 12% of consumers who visited a retail store this past weekend to make their iPhone 3G S purchase said they were replacing a BlackBerry handset [7% from Motorola, 5% from Palm, 5% from LG, 4% from Samsung, 2% from Nokia, 9% from "Other," and 56% from an earlier iPhone model] (...) A similar survey conducted during last year's iPhone 3G launch found that just 6% of buyers were replacing a BlackBerry, suggesting Apple may be on pace to double its market share gains from RIM this time around. (...) Of those iPhone 3G S buyers surveyed this weekend, 43% purchased the higher-capacity 32GB model and 57% were content with the 16GB model. This compares to 66% of buyers who selected the higher capacity 16GB iPhone 3G last year and 95% who purchased the higher capacity 6GB original iPhone when it was launched in 2007. (...)"
